Mer’s Pick: POPn’ Store Storage Boxes

It seems like people are always asking me recommendation storage boxes and bins. Usually, there are just too many factors to take into account to have a “go to” solution: size, material, cost, aesthetics. My one exception are Samsill’s POPn’ Store Storage Boxes.

Standing Desk – A Resolution TwoFer!

It’s the third week of January and New Years Resolutions are dropping like flies. The top two resolutions are to get inshape/lose weight/work out/eat better and to get organized.

Christmas Storage: When Do You Un-Decorate?

However, the price total of all these must-haves can quickly add up! Here are a few ways to maximize your spending. 1. Join POP! Perks. Go to this link and […]

Product(s) of the Week – Office

I had a few requests for more information re: the products I meantioned in my last blog, Super Small Office. Here we go: DOKUMENT Magazine file. For $6.99, you get a set of 2 files. I use these for a myriad of purposes, none of which is storing magazines. I love the modern, industrial look […]

Meredith’s Pick – Drawer Organizers

There are, literally, thousands of organizational products from which to choose. One of my favorites is also one of the least expensive: collapsable drawer organizers. I have read some productivity people suggest never folding socks or underwear, as it’s a huge waste of time. Sorry, I just threw up a little in my mouth. The thought of living […]
