(BPT) - Sponsored by Office Depot
With just a short time left before the end of this year and the start of 2023, business owners, remote workers, teachers and more are working hard to find a balance between celebrating the holidays with family, friends, and colleagues, and taking actionable steps to finish this year strong while also preparing for success in the new year.
Whether shopping for last-minute gifts, setting up workspaces, or restocking classrooms for the new year, Office Depot offers products, time-saving services, and instant savings on top brands to help shoppers wrap up 2022 and prepare for the new year ahead.
Consider the tips below when checking off professional and personal to-do lists:
1. Stock up on must-have supplies and find last-minute gifts
Don’t wait to restock your office or classroom until you’re out of paper, sticky notes, pencils, pens, or ink cartridges. Take advantage of Office Depot’s sales and stock up on must-have supplies now, so you’re not running on empty come 2023.
And while you’re there, consider picking up any last-minute gifts. Office Depot created a thoughtful assortment of gift guides with suggestions designed to delight everyone from teachers, techies, and teens to home office workers, co-workers, and more, online at officedepot.com/giftguides. And for those hard-to-buy-for family members, friends, teachers, and co-workers, Office Depot offers a variety of gift cards from hundreds of brands, including Office Depot OfficeMax eGift cards, that can be delivered within minutes.

3. Stay organized
The lines between work, family, and life in general can feel even more blurred than normal this time of year. To help stay productive without sacrificing your personal life, it's important to stay organized. You don’t want to accidentally schedule a work event at the same time as a festive get-together, holiday meal, or movie night. Start using a calendar or planner to help prevent work obligations from interfering with well-deserved downtime.
There are many choices for digital and physical planners, and ideally you should use both. While a digital calendar is easy to access on the go and share with others, a physical planner is also convenient to have around. With a physical planner, you can easily pencil in and refer to your schedule while on the phone or during face-to-face meetings with clients and employees.

4. Sit comfortably with a chair upgrade
Think about the chair that you use every day to get work done. Is it a dining room chair, maybe a kitchen stool, or is it a worn-out office chair from years ago? Is it no longer comfortable? Or maybe it’s losing its function? Invest in your comfort this holiday season and beyond with a new chair for your office or home office. And with so many options to choose from, check out Office Depot's Chair Buying Guide to learn what might be the best option for you. Plus, thousands of chairs are on sale during Office Depot’s holiday chair event, happening now through the end of the year.
