Staples Review

Since we moved ourselves a couple months ago, we decided to sell our big heavy desk, so we wouldn't have to move it. However, now that we are settled, we have been in desperate need of a new desk. I am not a fan of all the disorganization, papers flying around, my laptop being manhandled by my children, and all the other chaos of having no desk.

So, when I got the chance to shop at Staples, I immediately started shopping for a desk. They have so many beautiful options to choose from, that I had a hard time choosing. I finally settled on the Altra Chadwick Collection L Desk in Nightingale Black. I loved that it was in my price range, had lots of desk space and drawer storage, and it looked really sleek. 

I was so impressed by how fast this desk shipped! I am also very pleased with how it looks in person and how perfect it fits our needs.

 My husband was kind enough to assemble it for us. It took him a couple hours, but the directions were easy to understand and all the parts he needed were included.
Here is the completed project. It has three small item drawers to organize your work supplies, one file drawer that holds letter or legal sized documents and storage cabinet with adjustable shelf and wire management passage. As you can see, it also has plenty of desk space to store your computer, printer, plants, papers, and more. Since I love using my stability ball as my desk chair, I was happy that it works perfectly with this desk!

While I was shopping for the desk, I couldn't help but browse all the other things Staples carries. Their website is really organized, and it is easy to search for what you want by looking under their shopping labels. Did you know they sell coffee makers, entertainment products, cleaning supplies, and even medical supplies? They really are a one stop shop! Plus, did you know that you get free shipping on all orders over $20? Can you say - Awesome?!

While I was browsing, I also had to order some Crayola Washable Finger Paints for my children. I knew they would love these. With all the cold weather we have been having lately, it is has been hard to find things to keep them busy, and these were a blast! As you can see on the picture below, my daughter is really enjoying them! They wash off easy and are safe to use. We received all three primary colors, so we had a fun time learning about color mixing.
You will definitely want to check out Staples for all your office supplies, home supplies and more! They really do make shopping easy!

Full disclosure, Staples provided me with this desk and paints. The words opinions express in this review are strictly my own. To see the full line of desk collections visit
