We get a ton of reviews at On Time Supplies, and we read every one of them. We love to hear what you think, especially your thoughts on some of our hard to find office supplies. Have you ever had the darnedest time finding a product you think would be everywhere? That’s what happened to Jerry. He knew he needed something to help him organize the 3 ring binders on his office bookshelves. He just wasn’t sure what he needed or where to get it. So for Jerry, C-Line® Self-Adhesive Binder Label Holders and On Time Supplies were like gifts from above – or at least gifts from Google.
I finally organized my bookcases with C-Line® Binder Label Holders!
I am reorganizing my office bookcases into a complete filing center, and was unable to find supplies that I needed in local office supply stores, even the large chain stores like Staples. This difficulty was delaying my projects until I located the On Time Supplies site on the Internet. Since then, I’ve become a regular and frequent customer because of the availability, price, and quick service that your company always has to offer. You never fail to have exactly what I need whenever I shop with you. I consider it a lucky find that I located your site when I searched the Internet, and now I don’t need to waste time to get quality office supplies.

Congratulations to all the new graduates of 2013! The good news is, you probably won’t be unemployed forever, despite what you may have heard in some of the more hysterical media reports. According to the New York Times, college grads are doing pretty well in this tough economy. College graduates have a lower rate of unemployment — 3.9% vs. the 7.5% for workforce as a whole.
The not-so-good news? Your first job might outside your degree field. Or a job that traditionally didn’t even require a degree. The job market has improved from the nadir of the recession, but most of the new jobs are low-skilled work. From The Times:
There is ample evidence that employers are hiring college-educated workers for jobs that do not actually require college-level skills — positions like receptionists, file clerks, waitresses, car rental agents and so on.
‘High-skilled people can take the jobs of middle-skilled people, and middle-skilled people can take jobs of low-skilled people,’ said Justin Wolfers, a professor of public policy and economics at the University of Michigan. ‘And low-skilled people are out of luck.’
Starting to regret the time and money you spent on that degree? Don’t — a college degree still pays off in the job market. You can expect to earn about 80% more than workers without a degree. So, despite the calibrated expectations and flexibility needed to navigate this job market, your education was still worth the investment.
Every so often, someone will ask us at On Time Supplies where they can find the Material Data Safety Sheets for a product. While we are happy to provide MSDS sheets when asked, you can find them for yourself on our website. Just search our MSDS Database to find of downloadable, printable MSDS Sheets for thousands of office supplies.
Hope that helps! If you have any trouble finding your MSDS Sheets for your office supplies, contact us toll free at 1-866-501-6055.

We got an interesting question at On Time Supplies recently: can you use plastic DYMO label tape as plant tags? Seemed like a good idea to us! But we called our DYMO rep just to confirm that a strip of plastic label tape makes a great plant tag. While DYMO LetraTag Plastic Label Tape is not absolutely waterproof, it is durable enough to weather a season outdoors in your garden.
Don’t own a DYMO Label Maker? Well first of all, now is a great time to buy one! Or you can use weatherproof shipping labels to DIY plant tags. Weatherproof labels are tough enough to remain intact and legible through inclement weather. Just slap your shipping labels on a pot, or fold them over a stake.

It’s National Bike To Work Month, the perfect time to dust off the old ten speed and give bicycle commuting a try. The Weather Channel posted a video of Al Roker describing the pleasure he gets from seeing New York while the “city is still asleep” when he bikes to work. Plus, it’s a great way to get some exercise. But bicycle commuting offers other benefits than exercise and the opportunity to slow down and enjoy the scenery. Bike to work, and you’ll reap great health and monetary rewards. Read the rest of this entry »

One of the bests parts of my job is reading all the awesome customer reviews we get. The high that comes from reading endless variations “OMG, you guys are the best” can’t be beat. Plus, we get a lot of really informative reviews too — reviews we know help our customers as they shop. Like this really great review we got on the Melitta® One:One™ Coffeemaker. I didn’t think I needed a single cup coffee maker, but Alyssa in Chicago has me intrigued. Read the rest of this entry »

I think all you teachers will be especially interested in this cleaning tip. Got a dry erase marker stain on your shirt? Before you’d have to add the shirt to the rag bin, or hope it was discreet enough not to notice. No more! Here’s how to clean dry erase marker stains from your clothes:
1. Place a towel inside the garment to catch any ink bleed off.
2. Put a little Murphy Oil Soap on the dry erase marker stain.
3. Blot the stain until it’s gone.
That’s it! Just launder your shirt as you normally would and that dry erase marker stain is gone forever. Is there anything Murphy Oil Soap can’t clean?

Do your file cabinets runneth over? Can’t see your desk for all the paperwork clutter? We’ve discussed some methods of file organization before — Smead’s color coding system changed my life! — but we haven’t talked about the #1 culprit in messy: too much stuff. Reluctant to trash files and documents? That reluctance is standing between you and an organized office. I just came across this great LifeHacker tip on reducing paper clutter in your office: regularly scheduled one on one time with your paper shredder. Daily, monthly and quarterly paper shredding will clear some serious clutter and free up file cabinet space. Go through your mail and inbox daily, your files monthly and quarterly, and run the documents you don’t need through the paper shredder Mail, bills, pay stubs, credit card statements — all candidates for the paper shredder. And be sure to shred old document, not just toss them in the trash. Neglecting to shred your documents is like the #1 way to become a victim of identity theft.
