Durability - What You Didn’t Know You Needed

Have you ever gotten something and then wondered why you lived without it for so long?

Durability, whether in a floor mat or something else, is something you don’t really appreciate until you’ve had something that’s cheap. And by “cheap” we’re not talking about something that’s affordably-priced. We’re talking about poorly made, not-long-lasting products that have a limited life span.

Once you’ve owned something cheap, you realize why it’s worth spending money. Read more ...

Bison Mat - Protection as Performance


Not really a word you expect to be used in describing chair mats. Maybe words like “tan” or “plastic.” Maybe even “big” or “square” and sometimes “rectangle.” But performance? Maybe, if we’re really trying to make a connection, we could say “performance” with our mats refers to the fact that they last longer than any other mat on the market.

The dollar store is a perfectly reasonable source for dog toys.

Spending Money on Your Space

Building an Office that Works for You

Whether you have a home office that you’re using or you're driving into the office every day, your workspace should be set up right. It needs to be a place that allows you to be productive. It needs to be free of distractions as much as possible. It needs the right lighting, the right seating, and the right technology. Your performance at work will be reflective of the space you work within. This is why it’s good to “get ready” for work even if you’re working from home. Working in your pajamas doesn’t make for a very proactive approach to work. In the same way, sitting on a couch with Nana’s crocheted afghan over your lap and Let’s Make a Deal playing in the background doesn’t lend itself to a productive workday.
