Knock knock utility task clips are a fun and functional way to tame your to-do mountain. You get eight large binder clips and six small, with quirky colors and one word instructions such as “Do” or “File”.
Using the clips, you can easily take an over-stacked inbox and sort the contents into what needs to be done. Got a little extra time left, but not enough to start an entire project? Grab something out of your “Read” clip. Noticing your “File” clip starting to fill up? Better get it over to the filing cabinet!
Are the clips going to save you from your organizational nightmare? Are they going to turn you into a productivity guru? Probably not, but they will give you a lovely way to sort and stack to help you stay on top of the pile.

Decision-making can be difficult. Especially when the decision is important. Managing the possibilities, considering the negatives against the positives, and understanding possible outcomes is vital to the process.
Knock Knock has created this Pro/Con journal to help make decision-making easier. This 102 page jotter gives ample space to write down the problem (Dilemma), urgency, when it needs to be figured out, two numbered columns for both the pros and cons, a place to tally up (Or use points, if one possibility might outweigh others) and a space to jot down the conclusion and a plan of action.
This journal makes attacking difficult decisions much simpler.

When I originally saw this little desk toy on ThinkGeek, I giggled. I thought about our first week open and the long conversations about Schrödinger’s Cat, the meaning of life and why we wanted to start DeskApe to begin with. This cubicle toy is the embodiement of exactly what we had wanted to start here. Just enough oddity, quirkiness and smarts to pass around the room.
Like a magic 8 ball, this adorable toy can tell you what to do when you open the door to find out if Schrödinger’s Cat is living or dead. Dead cat can be a negative answer, or when irony and humor is called for, the dead kitty might just be the answer your looking for.
The plastic box takes three AA batteries and is fairly well constructed. (It survived a light flight across the room and into the wall without incident) The only structure issue is in the battery compartment, the brand new unit was a little tricky to push the batteries into.
A great gift for geeks of all generalizations & genders.
Schrödinger’s Cat Executive Decision Maker is available on ThinkGeek.
Knock Knock office products are an addiction. They have a great range of both smart and sarcastic that adds just enough quirk to the most boring desk days.
Today, I’m checking out their Office Speak Rotating Stamp, which is all filled up with twelve different sayings, easy to switch through with a rotating dial on the side, they range from a fill in the blank “I need a __________” to the often uttered “What is it this time?”.
On the quality scale, you need to look at the stamp itself, not the included ink pad. The ink pad was sub-standard and like receiving a complimentary straw with your coffee, the ink didn’t soak in well, was splotchy and not the greatest quality. But the stamp itself (The important part!) is made of a combination of plastic and metal parts, the rubber stamping pads are flexible and leave a great imprint wherever you are marking.
