Borrowing From the Workplace

Ask Savvy: How Do I Stop "Borrowing" From My Workplace?

This reader posted in our Ask Savvy group for advice on how to stop being a workplace "borrower."

I just realized that I am a "workplace borrower". I borrow pens, forks, coffee creamer, etc. with EVERY intention of replenishing, but always forget because I am an unorganized sales rep. I feel terrible as I count out all the things I have been "borrowing" and know my co-workers must hate me. How do I dig myself out of this hole?

Ask anything budget-, etiquette-, or planning-related by posting your questions in the Ask Savvy group, and we'll find the right expert to help you out.
