    Freudian Slip vs Travel Tray query

    Hey Forumites,

    Our office is about to head down the murky path that is hot-desking, so I'll need to be able to corral my bits and pieces easily from my desk to put in my locker overnight (just as soon as I've sorted a locker out, lol!), and then back again the next morning. I have a FS already (MCB size I believe) that I've never really used in my bags so that's one option, another would be getting another travel tray (my Iberian one is *my precious* and stays by my bedside unless in a bag travelling).

    Currently the bits and pieces list is:

    • several pens and pencils
    • couple of highlighter pens
    • anti-bac gel in a travel/handbag size
    • coaster for my mug
    • small bag of snacks
    • small (A5ish) notebook
    • pack of tissues (again, handbag sized)
    • hands-free/headphones for phone


    Does anyone else use the FS or travel tray at work (whether pulled from your back, or a more permanent storage place)? Any thoughts or pointers please?

    I have a small TT on my standup desk at work... it is usually holding mini post-it note pads and various scraps of notes to myself.
    Up until Friday it was a Wasabi one.... and now it's Dawn since my new order came in Smilie

    The large is the size you'd want given the A5 notebook and if your snacks are bulky. If it's just the other stuff and a granola bar, then the small should work.

    If you don't have space constraints, you could consider getting one of each size:
    -Use the large for the notebook and all the work/stationary items.
    -Use the small for the tissues, anti-bac, and snacks and when they're running low, just take the STT home with you one night to restock.

    And note that Iberian is being retired, so if you love that colour, get it now...

    And good luck with the hot desking!

    I think your MCB FS is likely to work well for the list you gave! Depending on what your desk situation will be, you might want to get a clip that would let you hang the FS from the edge of your desk. For example, I've used a mini or small Heroclip to hang a Freudian Slip from the edge of a desk.
    I have a bunch of great bags. Favorite color combos include Aubergine/Island, Navy/Solar, Forest/UV, Original Halcyon/Wasabi, Cloud/Viridian... and now also Seapine/UV!

    I've fulfilled my dream of palindromic-colored nested bags! Navy/Ultraviolet Pilot with Aubergine/Island Side Effect inside: blue purple purple blue. Forest/UV A45 with Aubergine/Wasabi Co-Pilot inside: green purple purple green.

    I'm currently using the MCB FS for a similar purpose and it works great, try a test pack with the one you already have and see what you think.
    I just lay mine down on my desk behind my laptop when I'm working tbh

    Why not both? The small travel tray would be great to corral smallish stuff, like memory sticks, paper clips and clamps, chapstick, cough drops, etc. Plus, you know you need a small travel tray for travel as well as your large one. Well, don't you?

    I've been using an MCFS for similar purposes for about a year now and love it. I did decide to switch it up recently and am currently working out of a Deluxe Spiff Kit (jars removed).

    hey all, just popped back in to thank you for the tips.

    I've been using the FS for a couple of weeks now, and it's really working well.Smilie
