Why do bookkeepers seem to love stationery items?

Have you ever met a bookkeeper who doesn’t have a love affair with stationery? From pens and pencils to notepads and sticky notes, bookkeepers seem to have a special affinity for all things paper related.

So why? It’s not as if they use these items in their day-today work as much as say a writer or artist might.

Well, bookkeepers are just naturally organised and detail orientated individuals. They tend to enjoy keeping their work spaces neat and tidy, and having the right stationery items on hand helps them to do just that.

Plus, let’s be real, there’s just something satisfying about having a fresh, crisp notepad to jot down notes on or a new pen to write with. It’s a little piece of luxury in your workday.

A new notebook can feel like a fresh start. It can motivate you with to-do lists and ideas.

But it’s not just about aesthetics. Bookkeepers also rely on these items to help them stay on top of their work. Sticky notes and notepads are great for making quick reminders or jotting down important information that you can refer back to and pens and pencils are essential tools for recording transactions and making calculations.

So, while it may seem like a small detail to some, the love affair that bookkeepers have with stationery is really just a reflection of their dedication to their work and their desire to stay organised and efficient, which also brings them a bit of joy.
