25 ways to spruce up your cubicle

When I worked in a cubicle, I loved to fill my desk with cute little illustrated post-its, striped paper clips, and colorful desk accessories. Most offices are so drab so it really helps to add some color to your day. I recently stumbled upon some really pretty office supplies that I had to share! My favorite might be these gorgeous leather file folders, below, though it’s tough to choose a favorite!
