Staples Desk Apprentice Sells Out

Posted on May 18, 2005

The Desk Apprentice from Staples has sold out, but the office supply chain promises that more are on the way. The Desk Apprentice became popular on Donald Trump's hit show, The Apprentice. Designed by Team Magna consisting of Craig, Kendra and Tana, Donald Trump praised The Desk Apprentice model during the show for its "efficient consolidation of school and office supply storage."

With a 360-degree swivel base, The Desk Apprentice has custom-made storage areas for many different kinds of office supplies. Hanging file folders, scissors, staplers and notepads are among the office supply items that can be stored in the organizer's compartments. The one major downside of the organizer is that like many desk organizer products it is not attractive. It is also fairly large. But if the look and size of this desk organizer doesn't bother you then it might just come in handy. It retails for $34.99.

Shira Goodman, executive vice president of marketing for Staples, said in a statement, "The Desk Apprentice offers a creative solution for organizing home and office areas so we're pleased to add it to our growing collection of innovative Staples brand products."

Update: The Desk Apprentice has been discontinued. You can probably still find a used one on eBay.
