Favorite Organizing Products

These are a few of my favorite things!

Love label makers! These make everyone’s life easier!  You can find where it is, where it goes and everyone in the family can put things away.  Dymo Letra Tag and Brother P Touch are my faves.

Desktop paper sorters come in lots of styles. My favorites open from the top and have hanging files in them. The hanging file categories include action, pay, file and other every day paper slots. Choose one that matches the decor of your room.

One of my favorite “outside the box” ideas is to use the hanging shoe organizer in lots of different places. These are great at the back door for bug spray and sunscreen, great in the craft room for all the small tools, glues and attachments, great in the toy room for Barbie or hot wheels and great in the kids room for hair bows.   You can see everything, you can reach most things and it is an unused space that provides for storage.

What are your favorite things?

    I love all the things you mentioned, but I’ve got a few favorites of my own to share:
    1. Smead color coordinated expanding file jackets. You can set them up on your desk, grab them up quickly when you’re on the go, and they are convenient storage (you can even put manila folders inside them for further organization and save money on color coordinating all your manila folders).
    2. One subject spiral notebooks, pocket folders, divider tabs, and sticky notes. A writer colleague inspired me to combine these items (and neat tip: attach the pocket of the folder to the back so that it doesn’t open with the book and the printouts you keep back there won’t fall out when you open the notebook) to create “working notebooks” and you save a ton compared to buying the more expensive notebooks.
    3. Click-top pens. With no cap to keep track of and a quick click to use and store, I really love click-top pens!
    4. My WD Smartdrive 500 GB backup drive. I organize my archived back-up files on this sleek “Passport” hard drive and I can slip it and its convenient cable into my purse if I need it.

    Great blog post, Ellen. Looking forward to reading more.
