This year has been weird in a lot of ways, and it’s not surprising that this “back to school” season doesn’t feel very normal. Many of our friends and family have had to decide what the semester and school year will look like, making the best decision for their family. I figured to get in the spirt of “back to school” (which is always a reminder that fall is almost here), I’d roundup some awesome office finds and host a festive giveaway! This post is sure to elevate your mood and workspace, no matter where you’re learning, working, or teaching! I’m also in the process of furnishing our new office building on a budget, so I’ve been saving lots of cool things. I’ll share more on that soon, but in the meantime- you can at least see some of things I’m buying for the space. Click through for my back to school, workspace, and office finds… plus a few desk and chair pairings, AND a fun giveaway!
My home office is looking the same as it has for the past year. We haven’t renovated the space yet, excluding updating the hardwood floors. Someday I have big dreams for this room, but for now- it’s clean and functional. I grabbed a pair of vintage, modern ottomans from Facebook Marketplace last week and they’re a welcome addition to the space.
I typically keep my desk area pretty organized. I swear by my planner, to-do list, and am the type of person who writes everything down. I also find joy in the little, everyday details- like office supplies, a nice smelling candle, a pen that glides across the paper, and fresh flowers.
As most of you know, I work from home full-time. Although, recently Emmett and I started renting an office space for an upcoming endeavor. I’ll share more on that really soon, but in the meantime- you can catch my tips for working from home and setting up a home office. After working from home for many years, I decided to share some challenges I’ve encountered and solutions that combat them, if you’re in a similar work environment within the walls of your home.
Even though I’m obviously not in school (neither a teacher nor student), I still enjoy the “back to school” season and the fresh office supplies that come along with it! I use this as an opportunity to get organized, motivated, and set goals for the remainder of the year.

I’ve mentioned my love for Appointed office products in the past, and I asked if they’d like to participate in a giveaway with me. This post isn’t sponsored, but they generously sent everything I asked for, so that I could host a fun back to school giveaway for you guys! They really do have the best stuff… I nerd out over office and productivity things- bonus points if they’re beautiful.

What is everyone’s situation looking like this season? Are you working from home? Are you working at your office? Teaching your kids at home this semester? Going back to school yourself? For us, I obviously work from home all the time, but Emmett is back to working at his cool office… I designed his company’s office. If you missed those posts- check them out here and here. It was honestly difficult for us when we were both working under the same roof in our home. We have totally different work styles and routines, so I’m happy to have a bit of normalcy back these days. Now, bring on fall!!!
