Happy Sunday fellow readers! It’s been awhile since I’ve been on blogging, but it’s always been on my mind! So much has been going on, with the school year, the kids, and also working part time at two jobs! YES TWO!! This mama is back in the game! As some of you know, I’m an Instructional Assistant to a Kindergarten class here in Sacramento! I’m in the same Unified School District with my own children, which is great because, we their off, I’m off! Our vacations are totally in-sync!!
As for my newest job, I work for one of the general hospitals here in Sacramento as an Administrative Assistant!! If you’ve never had a position within the healthcare world, boy oh boy, their interview process wasn’t that rigorous as I thought it would be, but it was the job steps in getting cleared through Human Resources, and the hospital. Very very step heavy, and something I’ve gone through. Anyhow, you’re girl is back into the work world doing two things that make me happy, provide for my family, as well, as keep me in check in life, routine and schedule.
Speaking of schedules, now having 2 jobs now has be driving to and from places like a mad woman. Gym in the early AM, dropping off the kids to school, going to job 1, fitting in groceries, getting my second work-out in, prepping dinner, bringing the children to karate, then going to my second job…Everything has me working from my car. And with that, I need a journal, and a few basic office supplies always on hand.
Here’s a post on basic stationary I keep handy as this mother works 2 jobs, and balances out life as a wife, mother, and employee. Daiso EDITION!!
“The Japanese dollar store,” is known for their cute, “kawaii” designs that make everything in their retailer different from the normal dollar general retailer. From stationary, health & beauty, Japanese products, to kitchen & dining. Enter at your own risk, as Daiso may surprise you!! I’ve been able to avoid Target for the longest time because I’ve shifted my mind-set to Daiso everything. #DaisoHack #AvoidingTarget
From the cutest stationary sets, of normal standard sized envelopes, to the cutest, tiny-itty,-bitty panda printed envelopes you can find!!! So kawaii ya’ll!!!!
High quality pencils, pens, calligraphy pens, markers, colored pencils, to journals, planners, wallets, and office supplies. Majority of things costing $1.50!!! I also scored this cute pencil zipper case ($1.50!) It fits perfectly in my purse which holds my laptop, along with files for work, and other planners I normally hold.
I’m seriously a walking-wanna-be-kindergarten teacher, with office flare. Ok, ok..That was my attempt to be a little funny. But girl, look at that white, and black graph-print pencil case! Does it scream Etsy/UrbanOutfitters inspired?! You would have never known it was from Daiso, it I didn’t mention it! I’m planning to purchase a whole bunch, just cause it’s $1.50!!! HELLO, I see make-up bag, bags to hold my ear-buds, and other cords, and also tampons! YUP. A little TMI, but shoot! For reals ladies!!!
Being a busy working mom on the go, phone-calls, appointments, meetings, all come up to the surface when in my car. So having my little travel friendly office supplies on me in my purse, comes definietly handy, as I can simply, pull over, or while I’m wait
