Digital Minimalism Book Review

Our company provides solutions for clutter, including paper and schedule clutter, but we don’t offer solutions for digital clutter. Cal Newton’s book does. In Digital Minimalism, Newport goes into great detail why digital clutter is such a problem, then recommends intelligent solutions. He talks at length about Facebook and the iPhone.  Both are major culprits of digital clutter, but they …

Garage Storage System and Review in Fairfield County CT

garage cabinets Fairfield County CT

Last week I had the pleasure of meeting with Karen Bradbury. She is the award-winning owner of Closet & Storage Concepts in Norwalk. People know her store  for bedroom closets, but it also features a great variety of garage structures and systems. This is where I focused my attention for garage month. Here is my review of their garage organizing …

Product Review: Monkey Bars

There is no better garage organizing system than Monkey Bars. Period. I’m not getting paid to say that. I just really, really love this product. Why? Let me count the ways.


Product Review: EverDock by Fuz Designs

Sometimes I just discover a product and I fall in love with with it. This is just such a product. The EverDock by Fuz Designs is one of those rare products that simply does exactly what you need, nothing more, nothing less.


Product Review: Fellowes Saturn 3i 95 Laminator

The Fellowes Saturn 3i 95 Small Office Laminator is an excellent laminator. It couldn’t be simpler. If you have been frustrated by the learning curve that comes with all the new gadgets and software that are available these days, then you’re in for a treat.

Book Review: Effortless Entrepreneur

Effortless Entrepreneur is not an organizing book, but it does emphasize the importance of systems and it uses one of my favorite services as a model. It was written by Nick Friedman and Omar Soliman, the co-founders of College Hunks Hauling Junk. I had the pleasure of meeting Nick at the NAPO Conference this past May. He featured his services at the expo, then delivered the best presentation I saw all week: How To Work “On,” Not “In,” Your Business.


Product Review: Sharpie Products

I have been a fan of Sharpie products for years. Every one of my team’s project boxes have black Retractable Sharpies in them, so we never loose a cap. My clients love them! Today, however I am looking at three new products from Sharpie: the Premium Pen, the Neon Permanent Markers, and the Metallic Permanent Marker

Product Review: Rotating Desktop Tablet Stand by Kantek

I decided to test out the new Rotating Desktop Tablet Stand by Kantek at one of my bloggers meetings. I meet with some networking colleagues every few months in an effort to help each other out with our blogs. This turned out to be the perfect place to take this product for a spin!

Product Review: Wrapster

The Wrapster by Quirky makes a great stocking stuffer for iPhone users. It wraps your earbuds up in a neat little bundle AND it provides a stand for your iPhone.

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 …


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

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

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.
