I really like these file folders. They are fun and it’s neat to be able to personalize them. However, since I used them for work at my office, I didn’t actually have the time to color them in. I did let my middle school daughter use them for school, and she REALLY enjoyed coloring them in and using them to keep her stuff organized. I think these are better suited for family or personal use, vs. office use. But still very neat. 🙂 Penny Z
Comment: It is nice to have colorful files, easy to find in the drawer. Linda B
These got much better feedback than I anticipated. J The few people who received these enjoyed being able to customize them to their own preference. They also likes being able to take some mini-breaks during the day to color a little bit here and there. It was a great way to decompress for a few moments. The quality of the folders were good, in keeping with Smead products. Overall this item was a hit. Breanne E.
Nice folders, fun to color
I like the oversized tabs Colleen O
Smead SuperTab Coloring Folders- This is such a fun idea, I’ve always thought office materials were so bland so being able to color some folders has brightened a little part of my office. I colored these slowly, during phone calls or as a break between projects so this product supplied me with some nice décor and a creative break from my day. I highly recommend this product to anyone who feels their office is a little drab and enjoys coloring as a stress reliever. Rose D
I love these fun coloring folders! They are made of thick, bright white cardstock that hold up to daily use. Coloring is a great stress reliever, and it is fun to make a personalized folder.

I used this at my office. I must say, I have never even thought about using a mouse with palm/wrist support…and I was pleasantly surprised at the difference it made. It was comfortable and easy to “attach” to my current mouse. The only issue I ran into was that it seemed to take up valuable space on my desk. (I have a small area.) I really liked using it, however, for my workspace, I could’t afford to give up the surface space it took up. For someone with a larger desk/area, it would be great. It definitely supports your wrist/palm and is easy to use. The gel was so comfy. Penny Z

Comment: Comfortable and easy to use. Linda B
The person who tested this out really ended up liking it and will buy another one if this one ever needs to be replaced. After a few days of getting used it, having her wrist propped up a little, it was comfortable to use. The only issue was that she wished there was a better way to attach it to the mouse, since there ended up being a little give between the mouse and support and doesn’t move fluidly as one unit. Also, you only have one chance to get it attached correctly, since it isn’t repositionable. Breanne E
The gel support is comfortable, but hard to get used to.
The mouse & support move smoothly on the mouse pad.
Mouse pad is easy to clean. Colleen O
Fellowes Gel Gliding Palm Support w/Mouse pad- The support attached nicely to my mouse, but was overall too heavy and large to relieve any wrist pressure. I use a high mouse sensitivity so that I can navigate my screen with a planted wrist and only slight finger movements. The mousepad was nice though and I continue to use it! Rose D
Talk about wrist support! This gliding wrist/palm support makes working at computer easier, and less painful! The added Microban antimicrobial protection keeps my mind at ease. Ellen B
This is a great product! As promised it definitely cuts through grease and leave dishes squeaky clean. And it smells amazing! The only issue I had is that I could not figure out how the mini packet was self-sealing. Once I opened it, it was open…there was no sealing. Other than that, I would definitely use this product in the future…especially if it came in a bit larger bottle with a lid. Penny Z.
The Dawn Manual Pot and Pan Dish Detergent is really a great product. It is gentle on my hands yet it is able to break down grease from cooking. It is a very versatile product, I used a little in water to wash my windows, it helped break down the grime. It also helped get out a grease spot on my shirt without fading the color. And it is gentle on the environment which means a lot for me. Dawn is a keeper! Michelle S.
Everyone liked the soap itself, most people already used that brand, but the claim that the packet reseals was a disappointment. Everyone twisted the top off, per the directions, but they were all left with a hole at the top that did not self-seal. They had to make sure the packet didn’t fall over, as soap would have leaked out the hole at the top. People would only recommend this for travel, such as renting a condo on vacation for a week with a full kitchen so they can do dishes and not have to purchase a smaller bottle of detergent from the store. Breanne E.
The classic, blue dawn dish detergent is now available in mini 2oz packets! They are convenient for travel, especially because you can reseal the little packs after opening. No other detergent gets dishes as squeaky clean. The convince unfortunately comes with a draw back, the excessive plastic packaging is extremely wasteful and harmful to the environment when not recycled properly, and that alone will deter me from purchasing or even suggesting them. Ellen B.
Best thing ever!! Seriously in love with these paper towels. So convenient for quick clean ups, where you don’t necessarily need to get out all the cleaning sprays, etc., but you need a little more than just water. The water-activated bubbles really DO disappear and leave no residue when they dry. Even my teenage son thought these were great! Will definitely purchase in the future! Penny Z.
I had the opportunity to use the Bounty Paper Towel with Dawn, I actually really liked the product. I was amazed at how much dirt it picked up with no sticky or soapy residue on my hands or left behind on whatever I wiped down. And the paper towel was really sturdy and did not tear or shred in my hands, one sheet went a long way. Michelle S.
Everyone agreed that these paper towels were far better than the towels we stock here, and most people liked them better than what they use at home. The paper towels were strong and cleaned up messes easily with just one towel. Some of the employees are looking to switch to this kind for their home use for cleaning purposes. Breanne E.
This new Bounce is tougher than normal paper towel, and it has a dry sudsing agent in each sheet that is activated when wet. They smell just like the classic, fresh blue Dawn detergent. The towels hold up to multiple uses without tearing, and they still produced suds after multiple uses. They do, however leave a slight residue behind, making rinsing necessary. Ellen B.
I love the idea of these Dual Action gloves, but they sound better than they are. The soft, microfiber cleans my phone screen well, but that’s about it. The gloves are too thick to be usable with a touchscreen, texting with them on is impossible. They are warm, and washable but not a good fit if you need to use your electronics. Ellen B
I tried the Dual Action Gloves, this month. I really did like them, they kept my hands warm. I was able to answer my phone or anything I needed to do on my phone. It was very nice not having to remove my gloves in the cold weather, just to answer my phone. I would definitely recommend these gloves to others. Jackie K.
Clean Green SMARTer Dual Action Microfiber Gloves
– Warm, soft gloves – great for cold days
– No need to remove gloves when using smart phone
– Neutral color (black) matches everything! Michelle F
Clean Green SMARTer Dual Action Microfiber Gloves
I wanted to love these gloves but they didn’t work as well as I’d hoped they would. The gloves were too big and so uncomfortable to wear. I would be more likely to order them if I could choose a size. Alison P
Microfiber Dual Action Gloves
Overall, these gloves were pretty good. I especially liked that I could clean the screen with the palm of the glove. I did have some trouble working the screen at times.
This may have been due to the fact that I have smaller hands, so there was a bit of wiggle room in the glove. Patricia M
Clean Green Smarter Dual Action Microfiber Gloves
I found these to be very warm gloves. They worked well with my touch screen electronic devices, such as my smart phone and digital touch screen in my car. I liked that all of the fingers were touch screen sensitive. This product seemed to do everything that it’s packaging claimed it should do. Becky H
Pre-packaged, pre-moistened screen cleaner is very convenient! The Read Right Screen cleaners have just the right amount of cleaning solution to clean two screens! The anti static solution evaporates instantly, leaving you with a gleaming, clean screen. They are also very affordable. Ellen B
The one step screen cleaner, I would have to say they really did not work well for me. They were very per moistened, so much they actually never dried. My computer screen had streaks’ on it after the product finely did dry. So for this product I would not recommend it. Jackie K
ReadRight OneStep ScreenKleen Wipes
– The wipe did leave streaks on my screens, once dried.
– Moist enough to wipe more than one screen.
– Conveniently packaged without need to spray screen before wiping. Michelle F
Rear Right OneStep Screen Cleaner
I loved these cleaners! I found them easy to use and they worked really well. They didn’t leave a residue and they seemed to keep the dust away for a long period of time. Alison P
One Step Screenkleen
I was not a fan of this product. The smell immediately turned me off. The wipes didn’t seem to clean very well and it felt like they left a residue behind. No matter what screen I tried to clean,
I was left with an enormous amount of streaking. Would not recommend these at all. Patricia M
Rear Right OneStep Screen Cleaner
We tested these throughout the office on monitors and smart phone screens. We determined them to be like any other alcohol wipe on the market. They worked but at first use they are very wet and caused streakiness. As the flyer states, “Nonstreaking, nonabrasive, antistatic solution quickly evaporates”, it did take some time for it to evaporate on the first surface it was used on and left streaks. Becky H
This was given to an employee to us in their car, and they said that the car air freshener worked pretty well. It lasted a few weeks, as stated, but they didn’t like the scent very much. They’d prefer a different “fresh” scent, or even a fruity scent or something. Otherwise, it was a good product. The employee kept it underneath their seat on the passenger’s side and it was noticeable throughout the car. Breanne E.
I didn’t really like the smell or look of this product. It smelled like chemicals and wasn’t pleasant. Additionally, it was difficult to remove so I probably wouldn’t buy it. Alison P.

Did not like the scent of this freshener. It was too strong. Linda B.
Until writing this review, I had forgotten that we never both pieces of this product; we only received one. Greg was supposed to deliver the second piece and I never got it. I think we both forgot about it. Breanne E.
I really didn’t like the way this product smelled. I found it to be overpowering and it smelled too much like chemicals. I wouldn’t use it because I prefer a lighter scent. Alison P.
Do You Own This Product? Yes
Do You Recommend This Product? No
The scent of the air freshener is too strong. Not liked in the office. Would not buy for the office. Linda B.
What an interesting packaging idea. When we saw the product we all thought it was a genius design – filter and coffee in one easy pack! That being said, the pre-portioned coffee grounds limited people’s options for the strength of the brew. While we already buy individually packaged portions at work a lot of people use more than one to make their coffee stronger. My only other concern was how to keep it fresh. In our workplace we would have to keep these Filter Packs completely sealed when not using them so they wouldn’t absorb humidity and even certain smells (it’s a manufacturing plant). Overall, it was a convenient product that I could think of a lot of uses for, especially if I didn’t have a 10-12 cup brewer. Plus it gets a big thumbs up for having NO bitter aftertaste. Audrene A.
Convenient packaging – just throw the filter/coffee in the machine & brew away!
Smooth flavor, not bitter
Folgers claims this is Dark/Very Bold with regards to flavor… but, I would consider it to be ‘Medium’. Michelle F.
Just as you might imagine this coffee tasted fresh – the vacuum sealing really seemed to work. While the brew was a little weaker than my co-workers prefer they found it easy to use more than one packet if they chose to. While there really is no design flaw per se I almost spilled an entire packet so be careful when opening them. Basically it would be better if the grounds were stronger and/or if there were more of them per package, but this was a reliable, good basic coffee. Audrene A.
Vacuum packet keeps coffee fresh
Claims to make 10-12 cups… but, there is only enough coffee in packet for 8-10.
Suitable for office that prefers to have coffee that falls between Mild-Medium. Michelle F.
Folgers Classic Roast and Black Silk (pre-portioned coffee)
The employees here liked the taste of the coffee, but unanimously agreed that the pre-portioned coffees were very weak for their taste. Of the two varieties, the Black Silk was preferred. So much so that people used less cream and sugar than they normally do in their coffee because they enjoyed the taste much more. No one really liked how the coffee was packaged in the filter since they would take up too much room to store. The smaller packs of coffee were more ideal and went over much, much better. We ended up using one and a half per pot of coffee. People felt that the price would probably be too expensive for needing to use one and a half each time. Aside from the taste of the Black Silk coffee, no one was very impressed with these options for coffee; they’d all prefer to buy canisters of coffee and portion it into the coffee filters themselves. Breanne E.
I liked the flavor of this coffee. The vacuum packing made them a little difficult to use. I ended up using two to get the coffee darker. Alison P.
The Folgers Classic Roast and Black Silk coffee. This was something, I had my office try the Black Silk Coffee and the Classic Roast. Everyone in the office just loved the Black Silk Coffee. Whenever anyone made the Black silk Coffee, they wanted to be notified by e-mail. The Classic Roast is the coffee we use now, this coffee was not liked as much as the Black Silk Coffee. We are switching to the Black Silk Coffee. To this day the employees are still talking about the Black Silk Coffee. It was a Big Hit!!!
I really liked this cup. The thickness of the material not only allowed for the “comfortable hand-hold temperature without the need for a sleeve” but it also make it more sturdy. Holding the cup and setting it down didn’t cause and crushing or dinging of the cup. I could also leave it half full for a day and it didn’t leak at all. Combining the durability with the fact that you can hold it without burning yourself I would say that this cup is a deal. Audrene A.
No need to double up on cups – less waste.
No sleeve needed, and your hands don’t get hot when holding the cup.
Nice colors Michelle F.
While this lid was good and worked as promised I found it to be just a lid. Perhaps I’m spoiled but it didn’t seem like anything too fancy. (Perhaps we have to consider the fact that I used a premium cup along with it so I never really got to test how well it really held up?) Overall, I would definitely buy the product if the price was comparable to similar lids. Audrene A.
Keeps heat from escaping cup which allows beverage to stay hot
Lid stays firmly in place, and does not leak when sipping beverage
Convenient accessory to Solo paper cup to help prevent spillage Michelle F.
Solo Coffee Cup
The handful of employees that used these really liked them. They didn’t get hot, only a little warm, so they were easy to handle with the hot coffee or tea. Some people tossed them after one use while others used them multiple times before throwing them away, and everyone agreed they were sturdy. While most of the people prefer using their own coffee mugs, many of them liked these as an alternative. Breanne E.
These cups were great. I liked the lid option, especially for meeting participants who want to take their leftover coffee to go post-meeting. They do get a little hot so I doubled them up once in a while. Alison P
First to start the Solo Coffee Cups and the lids are very nice. They are thick and sturdy. When holding a Hot Cup of Coffee you will not feel the heat, very nice. Jackie K
The scent of fresh petals and peaches are in the air! One, small diffuser will fill an entire large room with beautiful fragrance for over a month. I wish the diffuser had a more natural design, instead of the bright, white plastic top but it is still a great smelling air freshener. Ellen B
We put this in the women’s restroom and it was just okay. The scent is nice, but the only time you could smell it is if you put your nose up right next to it. It didn’t work well for an area greater than a desk cubicle, maybe. If the fragrance would dissipate a little further, we may have enjoyed the product much more. Breanne E
Light & Pleasant Scent
Noticeable when you walk in the room
Nothing to plug into the wall… just stays on the counter Michelle F.
This product started off smelling almost sickly sweet, like pure peachy sugar, but I liked it. While the fragrance was strong for the first few days it did seem to fade fairly quickly. That is not to say that it was ineffective, just that the scent became less in-your-face. It was still noticeable in a decent size room (10’x10’?) for a few weeks. It was especially more noticeable when placed by moving air such as a fan, a window or a vent. Overall the product was good. It was great to have an air freshener that you didn’t have to plug in! Designs of such products are usually tacky to me (or at least not fashionable) so I usually like to hide them from guests but it was unnecessary in this case. You could leave this one in an inconspicuous place and still smell it so it stayed pretty much hidden from my own sight most of the time (even though the design really wasn’t bad). I would definitely buy this product again and look forward to trying all of the different scents available. Audrene A.
Really liked the Bright Air Scented Air Freshener, it wasn’t too strong smelling for an a air freshener. I had my son use it in his room. Sometimes air fresheners are to strong and over powering. This Air Freshener was just the right amount of a pleasant smell, when you entered his room. Jackie K.
I liked the size of this air freshener. It fit well on our conference table and provided a nice smell that reached a pretty large area. I would definitely buy it, though in a difference scent. Alison P.
I have been a method fan for a few years now. All of the products are very natural and planet friendly. The all-purpose cleaner has pink grapefruit essential oil that smells clean, and fresh. This is an excellent, streak free cleaner I will buy again, and again. Ellen B
I received many compliments on this product. The scent was nice, a lot of people really liked it, and it worked very well as a cleaner. We used it in both the kitchen area, our conference room, and the women’s restroom and we had the same great results. Breanne E
Great for cleaning kitchen & bathroom counters
Heavy duty scrubbing not necessary – cuts through grease, coffee stains, etc.
No overwhelming bleach smell… replaced with a pleasant, citrus smell Michelle F.
The reputation of this product precedes itself. Several people who saw me in possession of it commented on how much they love the brand. I wasn’t familiar with the brand and tried to keep an open mind when experimenting on different surfaces with it. I was blown away! This product is great! I tried it on several different countertops, floors, desks and even walls and it was successful, as advertised, on all surfaces. For some real heavy gunk or stains all you had to do was let the product soak for a little bit. Most items were visibly clean with one easy wipe. I was especially surprised when it removed all of the toner powder residue from a much abused copy machine with ease. To my surprise, I really liked the grapefruit smell too. As I stated earlier, I really am not familiar with the brand at all but look forward to trying different scents and products. Audrene A.
The Method All Surface Cleaner was very refreshing. There was no heavy cleaning smell that took your breath away, but there was a pleasant clean smell. Knowing this product is good for the environment makes it #1 on my list of cleaning supplies. Enjoyed the product very much. Jackie K.
I LOVED this cleaner. It smelled great and really did a good job of cleaning surfaces. The size of the bottle makes it very easy to store. Alison P.
I really enjoyed the products this month. The Master Rolling Wrist Rest has worked out perfect. Sometimes my wrist hurts after a day of working on the computer. When I used the Rolling Wrist rest it actually felt fine, I had no pain in my wrist. I would recommend this product to my co-workers, who complain of their wrist hurting them. Jackie K.
I had never seen one of these before so I was excited to try it out! It took a little getting used to, maneuvering from the keyboard to mouse, but I got accustomed to it fairly quickly. To be honest, I think the padding could be a little thicker, but I love the support it gives and the smoothness of the rolling works great. Donna J.
This wrist rest is excellent- I like that it moves with my hand between the mouse and the keyboard. It is very comfortable and provides adequate support. I would definitely consider repurchasing this product. Shelby E.
I didn’t really like this product as I found it to be a tad noisy and cumbersome. Additionally the wheels kept sticking. I prefer the stationary version of this. Alison P.
I knew that I would love this product, especially since I already use a mouse pad with wrist support. Similar to the set-up that I already have, I found that this Rolling Wrist Rest worked best when I still used a mouse pad. The height of the apparatus is just a little too high for me to use the mouse flat on a desk – I prefer to have it loose on my desk with the mouse still on a pad. It is comfortable and moves around freely (I was afraid that it would lock up on me but it never did). In fact, the construction and materials seem high quality…like the product would last a long time. My one and only complaint is that the rollers do make noise. Of course it’s not loud and obnoxious but it’s also not whisper quiet. I would definitely recommend this product! Audrene A.
The Smead poly string & Button Envelopes are great. Our Company uses this product now for our Branches to send their work to the Main Branch, this keeps them clean and organized. They come in different colors so each department has a color, Accounts Payable has red, our billing department uses purple, and our Accounts receivable uses Green. This really helps to keep things organized. Jackie K.
We use something similar to these for our porters to carry paperwork in when going to the Secretary of State. They work great during inclement weather keeping the papers dry. I like that these are colored and are top feed, completely different from the ones we use now. Donna J.
These are a favorite of mine and help keep me organized. The envelope itself holds a good amount of paper and is quite durable. The envelope provides good protection from rain and water and keeps documents safe. I would consider repurchasing these. Shelby E.
Such a great product! Durable and easy to clean ( I spilled coffee on it!). I would definitely use these again. Alison P.
This product filled a need that I didn’t even know I had. With the material and the way that the closure is structured it was perfect to take paperwork out of the office without the risk of getting it wet. I also used them internally – assigning certain Envelopes to co-workers. I was able to pass along work assignments and random paperwork to people without crowding my desk with piles of paper and also eliminating the use of paperclips which sometimes hook onto other papers. Perhaps the best feature was the expansion. I tested this out many different amounts of paper inside – this Envelope effectively holds 1 piece to about 100 pieces of regular copy paper. At a glance $6.79 seems expensive, but you do get 5 per package. That’s just over $1 each, and they really do seem sturdy. I think this product is a value well worth the price! Audrene A.
What a great idea! Being able to put dry erase material on any surface that you want – it should have been invented a long time ago. First, I was impressed with the application of the product. It went on easily and smoothly. I expected more difficulty with that process. It was also repositionable. I’m not sure how many times you could move it and keep its condition pristine, but I changed it around onto several different surfaces and had no issues – no bumps or kinks or sliding off of the surface. I also tested how easy it was to clean. I left a huge dot on it for weeks, erasing a little more of it a week at a time. After 3 or 4 weeks there were no markings left. (I hate it when you write something on a dry erase board and a week later have to give it a thorough cleaning to remove remnants.) It seems a little pricey for the size that you get but it looks like you can get years of use out of the product which makes it worthwhile to me. Audrene A.
The Post-it Erase Surface with Adhesive backing, I brought it home to show my daughter. She was getting her school supplies together, as soon as she seen it , she put it in her math binder. She uses it for warm ups in her math class, instead of wasting paper. What a GREAT idea. Jackie K.
The POST-IT DRY ERASE SURFACE is great for my desk, making reminder notes that need to be done by the end of the day and then erasing it and starting all over again the next day. I have been using it daily! It erases well and I love that it can be removed easily too! Donna J.
Turn any surface into a dry erase board with this Post it Dry Erase board. It comes in a roll that you can cut to any size and shape, with a peel and stick background. The backside is covered entirely in a sticky adhesive that can be peeled off anytime, with no residue. This is a great product to keep you organized and focused. Ellen B.
These boards are a really cool idea! I really enjoy that they stick to almost anything and you can put several together to essentially make a larger whiteboard. They erase nicely without much staining and the markers write well on them. Shelby E.
A handy product, but not one I would buy frequently. It adhered well to the white board, but because it had edges, it made it difficult to use – especially because it was needed in the middle of the board. It would be useful in a corner and I would definitely consider buying it for that purpose. Alison P.
At first this marker seemed like overkill (I’m used to writing with the skinny, little dry erase markers) but that’s not the case. The chisel tip was perfect for if you wanted to write big or small. Also, the color (mine was blue) was rich and readable. Overall it wrote very smoothly and I liked the product. If I had to come up with a negative it would be that the cap is a little difficult to remove and replace – although that is a mixed blessing because it secures tightly and will help the marker to not dry out. Audrene A.
Also She just loved the Bic Dry Erase Markers too, this works well with the post-it Erase Surface. They write really good, smooth and erases easily. Nice writing Dry Erase Markers. Jackie K.
The dry erase markers have a bold chisled tip to wright bold, or filp it over for a fine tip! I left the cap off the marker for a bit, and it didn’t even dry out. These dry erase markers come in a pack of 12 bright, bold colors and they are pretty affordable at under $2.00 per marker. Ellen B.
This marker wrote very well- it did not streak after being erased, and the ink was dark and legible. It also does have a very low odor compared to standard dry erase markers. I also like that you can see the level of ink that’s left, so you know when you need to replace it. Shelby E.
I loved these! Great colors and they last a long time. They erase easily and the shape made them easy to hold for long periods of time. I also liked that they didn’t have a strong smell. Alison P.
Looks can be deceiving…at first I didn’t even want to try this product, I didn’t think it would be good, but it ended up being one of the best dry erase board erasers that I’ve ever used! It looked too coarse to be effective – I actually thought that it would scratch the surface of the dry erase board. But it didn’t! If you touch it, the bristles are pretty soft. I found that it did a great job cleaning dry erase boards and left minimal residue on the surface. I would definitely buy this! Audrene A.
The Quartet Board Gear Dry Erase Board Eraser does a fine job. At first she was skeptical, until she tried it. All writing disappeared without a trace of marker. Nice to have on hand.
She was very Excited with these three products. Jackie K.
I love that this eraser is hand washable, and you can literally use it for years. It worked very well on my dry erase surface, however I did not try on a Quartet dry erase board, which it was specifically designed for. The eraser is a great price, and remember, you will only need to buy it once. Ellen B.
I was not a big fan of the eraser- it did not seem to do as good of a job erasing as the others in my office. It seemed to leave some traces of marker behind when erasing. However, I do like that it is washable so that it can be reused time and time again. Shelby E.
This is a great eraser! Held up well over extended use and was easy to hold. I also liked that it didn’t leave little dust particles everywhere. Would definitely buy. Alison P.
We just purchased a dry erase board for the office so the DRY ERASE MARKER AND ERASER came in handy! The marker does not smell and it writes smoothly. The eraser works great and I like that it is washable as well. Donna J.
I tested the stylus end on several different surfaces. I found it to be accurate and precise on everything from my phone to my tablet. I was a little nervous that if I pushed too hard the metal lip surrounding it would scratch the surface that I was working on but that didn’t happen. Furthermore I found the pen end to write smoothly and it really was comfortable to hold. The only issue with this product is that it is available in pastelish colors that would appeal more to a junior high student than a professional. Overall, I really had no issue with the product besides the color of ink. This is an excellent product with a target demographic of under 18 years of age. Audrene A.
The PaperMate Inkjoy Stylus Pen this is a great pen really loved the way it wrote. It felt very convertible holding and the pen just glided when writing. It just flowed nice. Jackie K.
These 2in1 stylus pens are AWESOME! A perfectly working stylus can be hard to find, and this one has a pen too! As soon as I got this product to review, I immediately ordered a whole pack! The ink is smooth, and does not glob up. The stylus is firm, yet soft to give you the most comfortable touch-screen experience. I will buy these again, and again! Ellen B.
The stylus pens are very convenient when you are doing both—using a tablet/ipad and transferring the information on to paper. The pen’s ink was just the right flow and the colors make it fun! Donna J.
The (blue) pen is fine, but not a pen I would go out of my way to choose as it frequently cuts out while writing. I do not see myself using the stylus attached to the pen because it does not work to write on my phone screen. The pink pen seems to work better, but the stylus end remains a problem. Alison P.
The packaging at first seemed like overkill. There are several different tab cuts in different colors – they are all in pads of about 25 or so, and then all of those different pads are almost perfect bound into an outside cover. While at first I thought it was too much, I grew to appreciate how the packaging kept all of the pads together in one spot. Each one was easy to peel off so that wasn’t a problem at all. The idea of the product is great! Perhaps a little larger than I would ever need, but better to be too much than too little. My one criticism would be that they weren’t what I would consider reusable. After placing them, removing them and reapplying I found that after a few uses they were curling up and not sticking any more. Honestly, for the price, you probably can’t beat this product though. Audrene A.
The Redi-Tag Index Sticky Notes, these I let me daughter use them. She was very excited!! She is writing a book, these will come in handy. When she has a thought she writes it down and just sticks the index note were the thought is needed to be. Jackie K.
The next generation of sticky notes is here! These are bigger, lined, and tabbed for the ultimate note taking. The bright, multi-colored sheets come in the cutest little binder that protects and dispenses easily. The tabbed notes are sticky, but will loose stick after about three re-positionings. A great product! Ellen B
The ruled notes with the tabs were also very convenient! I used them in a monthly binder and was able to make notes for certain items. Even nicer, I am able to take them off and use them again for next month, if needed. Donna J.
The sticky note is nice with the lines but I don’t think the tab adds anything to this size of sticky note. I liked the variety of colors. I would be more likely to purchase these if they came unbound and were easier to separate. Alison P.
The cool berry beverage is a sweet little energy boost! The brew over ice K-Cups are packed with vitamins and minerals that help you get through the day. This is a great drink with a sweet berry taste. Ellen B.
Overall I was pleasantly surprised by this product – I didn’t expect to enjoy it as much as I did. Just like other Vitamin Water products I did pick up on a slight aftertaste but it wasn’t bad at all. I found it to be very refreshing, especially on hot days, and also very sweet. I did, as I do with most juices, find myself watering it down slightly just to cut back on the sweetness a tad. Overall I would consider purchasing this for personal consumption but I don’t see my company buying it for the conference room or anything. Audrene A.
Nice that it didn’t have an overly vitamin flavor. But wished it tasted a bit more natural. Overall good product, helpful to boost vitamin C. Alison P.
– Very similar to the lemonade cups in regards to the ice. Room temperature at best. Even though it is supposed to be a cold drink, it works quite well as a hot drink when I used the second K-Cup. It reminded me of black tea with numerous fruit infusions. Amanda S.
The Acai Berry was very good, my daughter one of the tasters just Loved It!! She asked if I could get more of the Acai Berry. Jackie K.
Just like fresh squeezed lemons! The Lemonade K-Cups are easy to brew and chill. The cool drink is just the right amount of sweet, and sour with a great aftertaste. Very refreshing! Ellen B.
This was the first time that I had used the Keurig to brew something cold and I liked it. I think that I was expecting a diety, “Crystal Light type” tasting product but that wasn’t the case at all. It was just a really good lemonade product. Definitely sugary without being too sweet, with just a punch of the sour that you would expect from any lemon flavored item. Overall, the rating would be good to very good – definitely what I would call a “re-buy” but not necessarily the best lemonade that I’ve ever had in my life. I could see keeping this on hand for visiting customers and vendors as lemonade is a crowd pleaser. Audrene A.
Very delicious lemonade flavor. Was a bit too concentrated and needed to add lots of ice. Great for a quick lemonade. Alison P.
– At first I wasn’t sure how much ice was needed based on the cup size. Even after the lemonade was brewed over a full mug of ice it was warm and not even room temperature. Adding ice afterwards did not dilute the flavor (it tasted good). However, it required a new glass to use due to added ice. Amanda S.
The Lemonade was tasted by another person and I. It was very Tart for me. I do like lemonade but more sweet than sour. The other person who tried it, and thought it was very sour. Jackie K.
This packaged breakfast is perfect for on the go, quick eats. There is just enough protein to fill you up, and enough sweet and savory to satisfy. Eat alone, or add to yogurt or milk. An Ideal breakfast, or mid morning snack. Ellen B.
I was excited and nervous at the same time to try this product. My head was telling me that it was going to be some hippy, healthy product that I wouldn’t like but I kept reading the package that said “With Glazed Walnuts” and I knew that it had potential! I was not disappointed – it was pretty good. The serving size was perfect for a snack (it would not be enough for breakfast for me) and as the name dictates, was good for on the go. I found myself debating whether or not I would rather have it in a bar form as opposed to the loose item bag and honestly I still don’t know. I liked being able to pick out which pieces I ate and in which order (it’s like Chex Mix, you save your favorites for last) but I think that it was a little messier than a granola bar would be. Although I’m more of a Pop-Tart girl, I would definitely consider buying this product. I think that it would work great in a vending machine! Audrene A.
Very tasty but the sugar content is a little concerning. Easy to eat on the go. Probably wouldn’t buy in bulk, though. Alison P.
– I don’t eat trail mix very often, but this one tasted good. Good mix of different flavors and nothing was dry. Two issues. Too expensive for the size given. $9.49 for a bag of eight. If the individual bags were slightly larger then it would be ok. Second, the calorie to protein ratio is not great. These type of trail mixes are labeled as healthy but anything but. The saturated fat content and amount of sugar is way to high for the serving portions given. Amanda S.
It sure was good morning in a rush today, still able to enjoy a quick breakfast on the go. The Emerald Breakfast on the go, they are just delicious. They are great to have for a quick pick me up when you fill the urge for a Great snack Jackie K.
Although skeptical at first I ended up liking the CleanSmart Disinfectant Spray. There were a couple differences between this product and the typical hand sanitizer. First off is the fact that it is alcohol free with no harsh chemicals. When you use it you don’t get that initial burning, alcohol feeling, which is nice, but makes you question the effectiveness of the product. After testing it under several conditions I do believe that it kills germs. Another difference is the fact that you don’t have to rub your hands together like you usually do. I thought that this would create an annoying wait time where your hands are soaked but that’s not the case. The product dispenses a very fine mist – even if you use a lot the dry time is quite short and there really is no need to rinse or wipe as advertised. Overall, I was impressed by this product and would definitely buy it in the future. Audrene A
I really like the IDEA of this product and will say that I used it pretty often, but in actuality I don’t know that I’d ever buy it. It made my hands feel clean without leaving a sticky residue or making them feel overly dry (probably due to the lack of alcohol). The only drawback was the faint smell it leaves behind – can’t quite describe it but it sort of smells like when you leave a glass of water out overnight. A little musty. Alison P.
I love this hand cleaner spray. It leaves no residue and no scent. The formula was very moisturizing, and left my hands feeling good. Ellen B.
This hand cleanser is gentle to use and doesn’t cause any skin irritation like other brands that use alcohol- great for sensitive skin. Because it is water-based, the spray can take a little while to dry, longer than other hand sanitizers typically do. A little bit goes a long way with this product; one spray for each hand is sufficient to sanitize. Would consider purchasing in the future. Shelby E.
It has been great using this and not screaming in pain when it gets in cuts on my hands! I love that it is alcohol-free, so it does not dry out my hands either. I would purchase this just because of the alcohol and fragrance free features. Donna J.
As for the hand cleanser at first I did not care for it. I think I was putting too much on my hands. I had to use a towel to dry them. I did start using it again, spraying just a minimal amount on my hands, it is a lot nicer, seems to dry fast and hopefully it is killing any germs. In the past I have used a hand sanitizer that had alcohol in it, which did seem to dry faster. After using it for a while. I did not mind it at all. I would use it again. Jackie K.
This product was pretty handy and I used it quite often. The only problem I found was that it does require a wipe down on certain surfaces before you can use them again, and at that point I’m not sure why I would use this product over another similar brand. It doesn’t leave a residue, though, which is really great. I’m definitely going to continue using it. Allison P.
This spray cleaner is good, but contains lots of chemicals, and has a strong chemical smell. I am sure it kills all the germs, especially after sitting on surfaces for 30 seconds before wiping. It advertises that you do not have to wipe, however the instructions state to leave on surfaces, than wipe. I do not know if I will buy this product. Ellen B.
This product is great for spraying keys and doorknobs. However, as with the hand sanitizer the product can take a little while to dry. Because of this, although it claims there is no need to “wipe” the product, you do need to wipe down tables, keyboards, etc. where the product has been used to soak up the product and dry off the surface if you don’t have at least an hour to spare. This is a decent disinfectant, but is not a cleaner. Would probably not repurchase in the future. Shelby E.
I like that this cleaner kills germs with no odor and is safe around allergy sensitive people. I also like that I can use it on any surface and not worry that it will leave a residue. I have been using it on my keyboard and other desk areas, but would also like to carry one in my purse to use in public areas such as restroom door handles, etc. Donna J.
I feel they are okay. I did use the disinfectant spray to clean up my desk, It was nice not smelling any toxic fumes from the cleaning spray. It did clean up the area good. I would recommend this to be used in hospital, doctor or office setting. Using this everyday did seem to keep the germs away. Jackie K.
First the B2P Bottle 2 Pens, My daughter and husband tried these pens out. They just loved them, the way they felt holding them and the way they wrote AWESOME. I really liked the idea of the pens being made from recycled from bottles. I am a firm believer in reusing and recycling. These pens will definitely be on my ordering list. Jackie K.
B2P Bottle 2 Pen Colors- I really like the concept of these pens as eco-friendly and that they use plastic bottles to create them. They look cool, feel comfortable when held and write well (with no ink smearing). However, we received a purple pen and we would not have a need for purple pens in our office- we only use black or blue ink. Shelby E.
I love the purple pen; it writes great, does not smear and I will consider buying some in the future, probably in a different color, also because they are eco-friendly. Donna J.
When Pilot came out with the original bottle 2 pen I thought it was a great idea. I don’t do a lot of recycling but when I do its nice to know that I could be using a pen that I help create. Then when they came out with the colors it was like every doodlers fantasy. Love this product and all that it represents. My one qualm with this product is I wish it had a bold point like a 1.0 or even a bit bigger. Megan C.
The Eco Zebrite Doubled-Ended Highlighters I really did like them. They felt great when holding them. I really thought they were unique with the two sided highlighting. I had a piano teacher try them out. She really did love them, they really came in handy for highlighting in the piano books. They are working on their recital. These highlighters sure were a great access, for bring things together for the recital . These highlighters will be on our next order list. Jackie K.
Eco Zebrite Doubled-Ended Highlighters- Our office really liked these highlighters- they didn’t bleed through the paper and were not too bright. We really did not use the fine-tip side of the highlighter, only the wide-tip so we wouldn’t have a need for dual ended highlighters. However, overall the highlighters wrote nicely and were lightweight and comfortable. Shelby E.
I also have used the double-ended highlighters and love them!~mostly because they are double-ended. We often print out schedules that where we would definitely take advantage of this feature. I will be ordering these in the future! Donna J.
I use the Zebrite Highlighters every day to keep myself organized in my planner and at work. The dual tip helps when I need to highlight 6pt font that I can barely read and the regular tip is perfect for my oversized hand writing. Also the fluorescent colors are as harsh as some highlighters but still bold enough to grab your attention. Megan C.
The Avery Eco Friendly mailing labels. The 5160 I really enjoyed using. Made address labels with these. They were just the right size. The other mailing labels 5167 were just a little small for mailing labels. So we did not get much use out of them. This size label would be good for labeling things, like draws, boxes, files and other things that would need to be labeled. We currently do use the Avery 5160 labels. Jackie K.
Avery Eco Friendly Laser/ Inkjet Mailing Labels- Our office already uses Avery for all our labels as they provide the best quality labels and various sizes. We received several sizes, however the 5167 labels we received were very small and we would have no use for labels such as that. The regular mailing labels work nicely and I like the fact that they are eco-friendly. Shelby E.
I like the idea of the Avery labels and love that Avery lets you make the labels on their website so they print out properly on the paper. However my labels did not print out properly. The last we completely off, cutting off the top and bottoms of my labels. I had to use more of the product to get the number I needed. I’m sure it was my printer and not the labels. Megan C.
We love the Gecko Tech Reusable Hooks. The best thing we like about them is how you can adhere them to things in an office that you normally wouldn’t be able to adhere things to, like steel cabinets, wood desks, etc. without damaging them. Great concept! We love them. They are a little pricy but that too bad. Beth H.
GeckoTech Reusable Hooks. I did like this idea to be able to hang this product anywhere without it doing damage or leaving residue to a wall, locker, ect… My son uses this to hang his electrical cords for x box game, Phone charger ect.. He had the cords hung over my curtain rod. So I gave him this product to try. It really has worked well. At first he had a little problem with it staying on the wall. He then read and followed the directions and it is working out real well. Thank You for this product I think it has great potential. I would recommend this product to others. Jackie K.
GeckoTech Reusable Hooks- Works well for hanging headsets on, but there are not too many other office objects that I could see hanging on this (besides a lanyard). The adhesion to the wall is pretty strong- the hook has not fallen off at all. However, because there is very limited capabilities of use for this product in the office setting, we would probably not purchase. I think this product might be better suited for a home environment. Shelby E.
The Geckotech hooks work non-stop! These little hooks are strong, and handy! They stick to most any surface, and leave no residue, or holes behind! If they start to loose the ability to adhere, you just wash with water and they are like new! I will be buying more! Ellen B.
I love the GeckoTech Hooks! I took them home to hang up holiday decorations and they are still holding strong. They can be a little finicky on certain surfaces but all and all they stand up every well. We also tested taking them on and off the walls and it took about a month before it need to be cleaned and reattached properly. Highly recommended! Megan C
As for the Pilot BeGreen Dry Erase Marker. It does seem to be more vivid than other dry erase markers that we’ve had, and therefore we like that about it. However, not sure we would be interested in the refillable aspect of it. For one thing at a cost of $1.89 just as easy to replace as to try and refill. And secondly, I’m guessing our lawyers would quickly throw it out once it started not writing clearly. However, I did also note that it does seem to erase better than some of our other markers. I will likely try to order in the future. Beth H.
The V Board Master, I really liked the way it wrote on the white board. Everything was very clear and easy to read. No smudging which is a plus. I do feel this product will last a long time, since it can be refilled up to 5 times. I also like the idea that the marker is made of recycled materials. I am always looking for ways to recycle and save our environment. I would defiantly recommend this product to others. Jackie K
Pilot BeGreen Dry Erase Marker- The ink itself is a bit watery and light- it does not show up very dark like a standard marker. However, I love that these markers are eco-friendly and recyclable. Depending on the price of the refills, this could possibly be a more economical solution than simply buying a new pack of dry erase markers despite the lighter tone to the ink. Shelby E.
These dry erase markers are very heavy duty! They come in multiple colors, and are refillable. I however, do not think it is very cost effective to refill. These are bold, and do not dry out easy. I also love that the markers are made with mostly recycled content. Ellen B.
The mouse pad and wrist rest, I really did like a lot. This has a more comfortable filling then any Gel/Mouse pad I have used. It Conforms to your wrist and the nonskid pad is great for the mouse. Jackie K.
This mouse is the best mouse I have used. Lori S.
Our secretary that has carpal tunnel issues gives the Fellowes Wrist Rocker a thumbs up. The only complaint she had was that the pad slipped on the desk. She put a fabric mesh/type mouse pad under the Wrist Rocker pad to help stop it from slipping. Except for that one slipped issue, all in all, she loves it. Beth H.
We currently use wrist pads, this one is good. Chris U.
This mouse pad is excellent upon first few uses. After longer term usage, it started to make my wrists sore. The Elliptical design with rocking motion is helpful and easy to use. The mouse pad is a little large, taking up lots of room on my small desk. Ellen B.
I love the idea of the mouse pad. However, I have a Mac and the wrist rest is higher than my mouse and I am un able to use the product. Megan C.
The Pencil and phone station, not really crazy about. It seems to be top heavy. I put a pair of scissors in the holder and it ended up falling over. Jackie K.
Pencil and pen station is great. Lori S.
Fellowes Pencil & Phone Station is being rejected. Unfortunately, the station doesn’t have enough weight in and of itself and therefore is constantly falling over. Beth H.
The fellows pencil & phone stand is very cool. Chris U.
I love this phone/pencil holder. It is perfect as a charging station, with room for the cord to go through and plug into phone. The product matches my foot and back rest. Ellen B.
I love the pencil station. I am able to keep my life (my phone) propped up on a docking station to read my messages and charge my phone at the same time. Also he tools that I need are nicely kept and conveniently located. The pencil station is very compacted which allows it to fit in the tightest of places and to help you stay organized. Megan C
I gave the products to my custodian and she said “Yes I used it (the Pak-iT Spray Bottle and Cleaner) and I thought it worked well; left no streaks and had a pleasant smell, the size of the bottle was great!” Kim H
I found the Pak-IT Spray Bottle and Cleaner to be okay. Found it to leave a film. Betty L
PAK-IT 32oz Trigger Spray Bottles
The spray bottle works great. There is no plastic scent that transfers into liquid. Bottle works till the last drop.
PAK-IT Glass and Hard Surface Cleaner
The pre-measured concentrated cleaner is big clean in a little package. It cleans great, and leaves surfaces streak free. This formula really cuts through grease. Ellen B
Pak- It was a product that I was eager to try and I was severely disappointed. The solution pack took a very long time to dissolve. When it was finally ready for use the product was disappointing I sprayed it on our front windows and before I could grab a towel to wipe it off it had already ran all the way down the window. Once wiped off it left streaks which made the window look dirtier than it was. I am concerned that there is to much dilution happening leaving a poor product. Megan C
She also said the “The wipes worked really well, they didn’t leave any streaks or lint, like using a Bounty Paper Towel” Kim H
Boardwalk DRC Wipes to hold up when cleaning. Betty L
Boardwalk DRC Wipers
It is hard to believe these towels are paper, and not cloth! They even have a slight stretch to them. These wipes are super absorbent and leave no lint or residue behind. A great cleaning product. Ellen B
The Boardwalk Wipes were a very nice product. They are very soft and sturdy, they were able to stand up to a lot of liquid without being overly drenched in product. Megan C
These bright hanging folders are strong and sturdy! Easily identify your files with the selection of bold colors. My favorite part is that the label tab is coated in a plastic, which makes for an erasable surface using permanent markers and a white eraser. Ellen B
The Smead Erasable FasTab Hanging and File Folders is a great idea.
Works well with day to day to do’s. When done erase it and use the file the next day or two. Betty L
I love that you can reuse folder tabs without having to put a label on it.
Being able to write directly on the hanging file folder eliminates the need to cut pieces of paper to put in the plastic tabs.
It makes organizing faster and easier! Kim H
we really like the idea of rewritable files; will be very useful. Chris U
Smead Erasable FasTab File Folders
This is the future of manilla folders! The basic folder has a large, attached tab that you can erase, and reuse. They are strong, and resists tears. Ellen B
Mr. Clean Magic Eraser
This eraser is truly “magic”! They clean just about everything, even permanent marker. You are able to cut down to a smaller size, which is very convenient. The erasers are really tough, you can use, rinse out, and use again. Ellen B
The Mr. Clean Magic Eraser is fantastic. Works extremely well. Betty L
This air freshner is fantastic! It has been in our office for the past month, and still smells fragrant! We get many complements on how wonderful our office smells. The set up process was quite complicated, with tough to follow instructions, but once I got it set up, it is a hassle free, yummy smelling addition. Ellen B
Put the unscented air freshner in men’s restroom.
Nobody seemed to notice the difference. Betty L
I like the sharpies and will order them again. Chris U
While I love the idea of the Air Dispenser, I was never able to get it to work Sherry B
O2 Active Air Dispenser- these are a great product and the scent that came was pleasant. The only caution would be to use it in a large open area. Even in a large space, if there isn’t very much air circulation, it can seem strong. For such a small product it covers a pretty large space. Leah R
The Sharpie Extreme marker is much more bold than the original. The marker dried quickly, and was smear proof. It held up to washing in the dishwasher multiple times, and was still legible. A true permanent marker! Ellen B
While I love the idea of the Air Dispenser, I was never able to get it to work.
Marker is good. Betty L
Sharpie Extreme Markers- I really did not notice a large difference between these and the regular sharpies. The color does seem a little brighter and doesn’t fade as quickly. Overall, I do not have any complaints, I just don’t know that there was enough of a difference to warrant ordering different markers. Someone who uses them more frequently might notice more of a difference. Leah R
I didn’t find anything out of the ordinary with the “Extreme” sharpie. It’s a nice tool, but I didn’t see any different from the everyday sharpie. I wouldn’t pay more money for it. Sherry B
the air dispenser I thought was not easy to assemble, but once it was, nice. Chris U
The Bic stylus pen combo needs improvements. The ink color is very light, thin and hard to read. The Stylus side worked fine on an ipad, however the clip gets in the way. On a plus the barrel is very fashionable with a shiny pink color that we loved. Ellen B
the stylus is responsive and comfortable to hold, the pen writes well. I haven’t noticed the ink skipping at all or anything like that. When I have it in my pocket I do sometimes worry that it will break because the plastic doesn’t seem super strong. Nick M
Bic 2in1 Stylus Pen- The stylus is a nice touch and works well with touchscreen devices. I did not care for the ink quality of the pen. The ink is very light and almost looks gray. Overall I liked the pen and it was easy to write with, however, I would like a darker ink. Leah R
2in1 Stylus- This product needs some work. The ink is very light and I feel like the tip of the pen is going to break and is not secure. The lever to control the pen is in a funky place, pen should be a twist. Stylus works just fine, I’m just not much of a stylus user. Megan C
Pink pen worked well, I used it a lot last month.
-The switch to pop the pen worked well
-The Metallic pink was a nice color
-The only thing I would change is that I prefer Gel ink over standard ball point pens
The Post it Super Sticky Message Pad in bright pink is very convenient! Easy to keep at hand in busy situations. I love the super stickyness, notes stay put and grab your attention with the bright color. I will be ordering these again soon! Ellen B
The message pads are good as well, they have strong sticking power which is good so I don’t have to worry about them falling off. The pink makes them noticeable without being obnoxious neon colors. Nick M
Post-It Self Sticky Memo Pads- These are great for a busy desk because they stick to surfaces and hold well. The bright color makes them stick out and it would be hard to not notice them. Our office typically uses the non-sticky message pads but after using these, we are considering changing to these pads. Leah R
Memo Pads are very good for taking morning phone calls and the sticky back guarantees they wont get lost. The pink color is nice a vibrant and gives my desk some color. The lines are definitely helpful by making the notes clean and easy to read. Megan C
I wrote a lot of info w/ the pink messages sheet.
-I always like small sheets to write on as reminders
-I didn’t use the actual “message” of the sheet (see for, from, time, etc.) Greg S
