Where to look for the Writing Desks for Small Office?

Central to any small office or home office is the writing desk.  The term writing desk is a misnomer as very little writing takes place in the modern small office.  Central to modern offices on the computer either in its form as a laptop or as a desktop.  The computer is now the key element that a modern writing desk caters to, as well as the computer accessories such as printers, fax machines and the associated power and computer cabling required to make them functional.

But how the computer needs are catered to is not the only factor to consider when selecting a writing desk for the small office.  There is also the style consideration which dictates that the décor of the writing desk complement or match the surrounding or room it will be situated in.  This segues into the space consideration that has to be considered when deciding on the type of writing desk to get. Will the writing desk be required to be close to other furniture or will it be standalone?

Paying attention to space also requires the assessment of who will be using the writing desk; is a left handed or right handed person going to use the desk, our kids to use the writing desk or will it be used only by adults. Answering these questions not only directs the type of writing desk to acquire but also the type of chair to be used with the writing desk.

What does remanufactured Toner mean

When you have to deal with buying the replacement toners or cartridges for a printer, there is a very high chance that you would have come across the term remanufactured toner.  But what does it mean? It is pretty straightforward.  A remanufactured toner is one made from the user and disposed of the toner of an original equipment manufacturer OEM.  The toner manufacturer tests the disposed of toner to identify any worn out parts and then replaces the identified worn out parts.  The toner is reassembled and refilled with the same quality of ink.

Canon 128 Toner


Furthermore, the remanufactured toner is given a guarantee by the toner manufacturer that it will still work with the OEM printer and give the same standard of printing. Remanufactured toners on 123ink.ca also print the same (or more) number of pages as the OEM printer cartridges.


Canon 137 Toner

But the really good aspect of remanufactured toners is they are less expensive (especially on 123ink.ca) than their original equipment counterpart, while still giving the same quality of printing. Remanufactured toners also help the environment by reducing the number of printer cartridges that are sent to the landfill.

Refer to the links here and here for more information on the remanufactured cartridges on 123ink.ca.

How to recycle Empty Toner Cartridges

The printer toner is most useful when it is supplying the ink for the printed pages.  Right? No actually, it is also useful when it is empty and the printer indicates that there is no more ink within the printer toner.  Because in this empty state, when properly recycled, the printer toner is still useful to you by getting you some extra bucks, and also importantly by preserving the environment.

printer toner Cartridges

When we know there are substances within an empty printer toner which will harm the environment when the printer toner is not disposed of properly and we think about all the millions of printers out there in the world (including ours) and the millions of printer toners that each printer will use.  It now becomes important for us to play our own part in ensuring we are preserving the environment by recycling our empty toner cartridges.

The good news is there are several ways to recycle our empty toner cartridges and some might even get you some extra bucks or save you money.

The easiest way is by reusing old toner cartridges by getting refills for them. Refills can be obtained easily at the local supplies store. You create less toner garbage and your cost of printing will reduce significantly.  This option is not available for all toner models so you will need to do some research.

Another good option is to locate organizations within your area that take empty toners. These organizations include the local recycling center, the local office supply store e.tc. Some of these organizations use the empty toners for making remanufactured toners, which cost less than a brand new toner.  And some of the organizations also offer reward options for bringing in empty toners. It is advisable to call ahead to get details on requirements and limitations.

You can also get in touch with the toner cartridge manufacturer to get details on their return policies for empty toners.

A popular option is to look for cartridge buyback site online.  A simple internet search will reveal a host of sites offering this service. Most of these sites give money for the empty toners and some include free shipping.  For the big-hearted, there are also charity sites that offer some money for the empty toners and give the rest to charitable causes. For the more entrepreneurial, there is also the option of selling the empty toners on sites like eBay and Amazon marketplace.

Also available is the option of disposing of in an appropriate recycling bin that is marked for recycling.  But you need to read the disposal instructions on the toner, to ensure it can be disposed of in this manner.

How to Choose an Ergonomic Office Chair

“You don’t need a comfortable office chair. Here, sit on this box while you work” said no one ever. In a world where we’re so focused on making money, we’re often neglecting the health implications that come with this amount of stress. If you’re an office worker, then you already know that each time you stand up from your desk after having spent hours in front of it feels like someone’s stabbing you in the back. That’s because you’re forgetting how important it is to have comfort while you’re sitting down. So, before you buy your next ergonomic chair, here are some things to consider.

Look for a highly-adjustable model

Every good ergonomic chair has a lever for adjusting the height. Always keep in mind that the best ergonomic chairs will allow you to adjust its parts individually. For instance, you should be able to move the armrests back and forth while keeping the back support in a fixed position. Take this Moustache ergonomic chair for example. Its components can be individually adjusted, which translates into a high level of customization to better fit your needs. The PolyPropylene armrest can be adjusted to provide full arm support. The backrest is made of mesh so it can allow your back to breathe during those hot summer days. The chair also features a tilt tension system, so you can better find your sitting position. Basically, this chair provides all the adjustability you need: for your armrests, seat depth, chair height and back support.

Choose a chair with good back support

The main problem with spending so much time sitting on a chair is not providing sufficient care for your back. It is not uncommon for people who make a living out of sitting in front of a computer to have spine problems in the long run. Muscle tension, insufficient lumbar support and neck pains are something we often neglect and while repercussions are not visible when you’re 20, you’ll certainly be sorry when you’re 40. What you should be looking for is a chair that fills the gaps between your back and the chair itself, taking the shape of your spine to avoid tension in the muscles. Long story short, look out for these 3 things: lumbar support, adjustable tilt and headrest. This Moustache high back office chair should do the trick. The headrest will avoid you forcing your neck muscles and the lumbar support is there to make sure you don’t weaken your lower back muscles.

Don’t overlook the seat’s quality

This is a detail that most people don’t know, but having a chair with a seat that’s either too big or too small for your body can lead to discomfort in the long run. A good ergonomic chair should have a seat that’s 1 inch wider than your hips, while also having the seat pan just behind your knees. Due to the fact that each of our bodies is different, it’s difficult to recommend a single product for all our readers, but there is one chair we’ve found that stands out of the crowd. The Moustache adjustable office chair features an elastic cushion seating that promises to adjust to your natural body shape, making sure no unneeded pressure is applied to your buttocks.
