Rite In the Rain Notebooks Stay Dry, Even When It’s Raining Cats and Dogs

Rite in the Rain

 

Got clammy hands? Take a lot of notes outdoors? Then these Rite as Rain notebooks are the ones that you need. They’re water-proof, which means that it’s resistant to rain and humidity. In a way, it’s also klutz-proof–especially against people who spill drinks or foods on their stuff a lot. Aside from plain old water, these notebooks are sweat-proof too, so you don’t have to worry about anything blotting when you rest your sweaty palms on the paper.

The earliest version of the Rite as Rain notebook was developed by Jerry Darling back in the 1920s. It’s evolved over the years and they’re now available in a variety of bindings, sizes, and sheet types.

ALERT Staples: Every Office Needs These

Alert Staples

Everything’s all good until you run out of staples. What’s worse is when your office is truly out of staples because the guy in charge of supplies screwed things up.

Heavy Tape Dispenser Makes One-Handed Use Possible

heavy-tape-dispenser

Tape dispensers are usually a two-handed operatio: one hand holds the dispenser while the other pulls the tape out. But the Ultimate Heavy Weight Tape Dispenser doesn’t mess around with any of that. Weighing at a hefty, but still reasonable 2.2lbs, the dispenser will stay firmly planted on your desk. It’s made from aluminum with a cast iron core, and its industrial looks will blend nicely in almost any decor. It can also do double duty as a murder weapon, though we really don’t recommend that usage.

$50.
