Welcome to Work Week

The clocks fell back yesterday, meaning we all (minus the people of Indiana) woke up a little easier than usual on this particular Monday morning. To celebrate that “extra hour,” we’re dedicating this week to work and productivity. We’ve hit some of these notes before. We’re fairly obsessed with notebooks, and we’ve also reviewed the best work bags — according to both experts and our own Strat team — the best books about productivity, and the best desk organizers. There’s also a whole recurring series in which creative professionals tell us what they keep on their desks. Links to all of that past coverage is below. This week, we’ll be expanding on the topic with more bags, more desk décor, and one big, exciting feature on the best 100 pens. Welcome to Work Week at the Strategist.
