I’ve been obsessed with tech, fashion and office supplies for as long as I can remember. I have a sick collection of each and spend countless (no exaggeration) hours at office supply stores cruising for pens, notebooks and random supplies. In stockpiling these random things one must also have a love for organization because littering your office with supplies you can never find kind of defeats the purpose. On one of my random trips to Staples I came across the Martha Stewart Home Office with Avery collection and it spoke to all of my shopaholic senses.
It’s a neat little organization system that makes it fashionable, functional and easy to organize your office whether it’s on the go on in your home. The collection includes Totes, Journals, iPad Cases and much more, but what really caught my attention were the Accessory Pouches
The Martha Stewart Home Office with Avery Accessory Pouches comes in 3 different sizes: 6”x4”; 7-1/2” x 8” and 12” x 9”. All are 100% PVC, Clear Mesh, Spill Resistant and have full length zippers for easy access. They range in price from $3.99 – $6.99 so I decided to splurge and get 2 6”x4” pouches and see how they work out for me. Hands down one of the best purchases I made this year.
I carry a lot of devices and this means more than one cable and while traveling as much as I have this summer I need these things on hand at all times. I use one of the pouches for what I call my mini tchotzki bag. I keep my interchangeable cable which is handy with my external batteries, my Square Reader, USB to 30 Pin Adapters; etc. I love that I can grab the pouch and toss it into any handbag I am carrying for the day and know that everything I need to stay charged is in there. If I forget any of my external chargers I have a usb wall and car adapter so I can charge any of my zillion devices whenever I need to wherever I am.
The other bag changes function as time goes on – sometimes it holds pens and business cards, other times quick makeup change tools and other times receipts from those shopping sprees that weren’t supposed to happen. As awesome as these bags are I have one small complaint – the lack of available color options. The bags are clear with a teal zipper but I don’t always wear teal and matching is a pet peeve of mine. However, the convenience and organization they’ve added to my life outweighs all of that. These pouches have been a double blessing – I’ve stopped my mission to find the perfect tech bag – it was weighing heavily on my wallet and they cost less than I spend daily on lunch and I LOVE bargains. #WinWin.
