Product Review: Ogami Notebook

Product Review: Ogami Notebook, lefties’ friend OK, so this is really a repeat product review of a product from a line of products, I featured in my last product review. Confused? Doesn’t matter. This won’t take long. The stand out product from the line of the See Jane Work products was the Ogami notebook. I stated that while I don’t think much of spiral notebooks, this one was so good that I wanted to find a purpose for it. Well, I did. I gave it to my wife, Susan, who is taking a class at UConn in Stamford. She loves this notebook! It provides a nice smooth surface that her pen just glides over and, most importantly, the ink doesn’t smear under her left hand as she writes, a problem that has plagued her all her life. Perhaps I should have test driven this notebook, before I reviewed it last time, but if you’re a lefty, I thought you’d want to know.

Product Review: See Jane Work

Product Review: See Jane Work

This is the first time I have ever reviewed a line of product, but the good folks at See Jane Work have sent along several samples. Jane is actually Holly Bonn-Weiss, a successful entrepreneur who believes there is no reason organizing products can’t be stylish. I agree. I have combined them in the photos, but I shall review them one at a time.

Product Review: 3M 1.5 X 2 Post-Its

Product Review: 3M 1.5 X 2 Post-Its

I know what you’re thinking. “Really? Those nasty little notes that litter my husband’s computer monitor and desk?” No worries. I don’t like that look either and I don’t like what it represents: inaction.

What I do like, no, LOVE about the mini Post-Its is when they are used well. They are used best when they facilitate flexibility.

Product Review: Cablox™ Cable Management

Product Review: Cablox™ Cable Management

The Cablox Cable Organizer definitely taps into the whole minimalist aesthetic. Their one page website sells it’s experience as the “art of cable management.” It makes a feature of the fact that is designed in Denmark. For some reason, that makes me think of Brut, by Faberge, like that somehow makes it more special. It is, infact, about as easy a cable management system as I have found.

Product Review: Wall Mates® dry erase boards

There’s a lot of dry erase boards out there, so what makes the Wall Mates® from At-A-Glance® so much better? It’s the hanging technology.

Product Review: The Car Seat Cooler

Product Review: The Car Seat Cooler

The Car Seat Cooler is made by the Talus Corporation, based in Portland, Maine. In full disclosure, both my Vice President, Ben Soreff and I are sons of the great state of Maine, so it’s hard not to be biased for a Maine business like Talus, but we will try.

Product Review: The Doxie 1 Scanner

Product Review: The Doxie 1 Scanner

This is my third scanner review and for a very good reason. People hate paper! If I had a dollar for every time a client asked about ditching the paper and scanning everything, I would have about $34. (I’m not prone to hyperbole.)

Product Review: Grid-It!

Product Review: Grid-It!

The Grid-It! by Cocoon is one of those organizing products that folks get excited about on sight. “Ooh, what’s that?” It really is like nothing else. It’s essentially a board, of various sizes, with elastic straps, cris-crossing it, in various configurations. It’s useful for holding and organizing all sorts of things, but here are my favorite uses.

Product Review: James the Doorman

Product Review: James the Doorman

The Anglo-Swiss design team of Black and Blum are putting the fun in “function.” It’s worth checking out their website to see what I mean. Exhibit A is James the Doorman, a whimsical adaptation of the classic doorstop.

Book Review: Organizing From The Inside Out

Book Review: Organizing From The Inside Out

Ten years ago I didn’t even know there was such a thing as a PROFESSIONAL Organizer. The first one I knew of was Peter Walsh from TLC’s Clean Sweep. Not knowing where else to turn, I emailed Mr. Walsh, who started me out with two excellent pieces of advice: join NAPO and read Julie Morgenstern’s Organizing From The Inside out.
