However, over time, fashion and people needs have changed. So, the old-school leather and metal framed briefcases owned by your grandparents are probably just sitting under their bed collecting dust.

I have a co-worker, let’s call her Lily, who is very diligent about taking notes. She is constantly taking notes about various things throughout her workday. Notes are taken on everything from sticky notes to scratch paper in an effort to jot down information to ensure it is not forgotten.
