Organized House, Organized Life!

With back to school time upon us, it feels like a great excuse to reorganize and rearrange our office. I'm an organizer to the nth degree and I want everything to have it's place. Since we recently moved, we've got a long list of things that need organized and it's driving me crazy! One room in particular is our study, which has become the catch-all for things we don't have a plan for. I find a direct correlation between being organized at home and feeling organized in life. So now, it's time to get organize the insanity! I've been shopping online all weekend for different sales on desk organizers, cork boards, and storage solutions. One site that looks pretty cool is

One of the reasons I found this site intriguing is the pricing. As a former teacher, I could tell you the price I want to pay for tape, file folders, envelopes, calendars, etc. down to the penny. When I see a site that offers them at reasonable prices, I take note of it.

Of course I got a little off course in my search when I found their Fashion Stationary. Now, would I consider this a necessity? Of course not. But do I absolutely love it the same way a teenage girl would love it for her first day of school? Definitely! I love brightly colored pens, fun notebook designs, and unique blank books that has to offer.

And of course ,what adult doesn't love the occasional splurge on enjoys the  coffees, teas, and snacks for work? has a nice selection. It's not hard to believe that they've been in business for over 50 years seeing as they offer just about anything you could think of for school and office needs. What takes it to the top of one-stop-shopping is that they even offer gift ideas and presents ranging from flowers to gift baskets to those hanging steel balls that clack back and forth! All you super organizers out there, if you're like me, you could spend hours looking through this site.

Check it out!
