THIS WEEK’S PRODUCT…
There’s nothing worse than trying to find storage for your storage. Bungalow’s Collapsible Storage Bins are just that-collapsible. The function doesn’t stop there, they also wipe clean, have handles for easy transport, come in designer prints and can hold weight up to 300 pounds! Place next to the bed as a nightstand, under your desk for projects or samples, use it as an extra seat for the big game, or throw your dirty clothes from your dorm room in there for Mom to wash. Click here for more information. Purchase as a Christmas gift and use them as “boxes” to wrap other gifts inside!!
PREVIOUS WEEK’S PRODUCT…
Other ideas for this versatile product:
- Use one at your desk to post reminders and messages and to keep files in easy reach.
- At home, hang one in the kitchen to tack up recipes and hold your cooking mags.
- A couple hung at kid height in the playroom will contain coloring books and give budding artists a place to display their work.
CONTAINERS: A bargain at $2.49 – $7.49, these fun and stylish containers are great for storing office supplies, accessories, crafts, sweaters and pantry items. This exciting new collection merges the practicality of plastic with simple, yet stylish graphics. A new high-tech process called in-mold labeling, IML for short, seals the designs into the plastic. The graphics won’t peel, fade or rub-off. Best of all we’ve chosen prints that allow you to see-through to the contents of your box.
STORAGE AND MORE: The MOST versatile container is the TuffTote. Available in fuchsia, orange and lime. Use this container for wet or dry beach towels near the pool, balls, toys, fill it with ice & drinks and you have a party! What would you use this container for? Available in 3.5 Gallons ($13.95), 7 gallons ($17.95) or a large container that holds 225 lbs. ($20.95).
TRAVEL: Don’t have your suitcase bulging at the seams like this one…Packing Cubes. Pack you suitcase efficiently and have it organized so everything fits well and you can find what you need when you need it! This 3-pack set is designed for optimum organization and wrinkle-free packing. Keep items neat and easy to access when on the go. Use to organize clothing, shoes, books, maps, toys. Lightweight nylon construction. These make a great gift for the traveler in your life!!

MAIL: Instead of dropping the mail or important papers on the kitchen counter, try the beautifully-designed Vintage Wall Pockets. This piece is part of a collection that includes many pieces that look like old-timey pieces, but are shaped for storage of today’s needs. Click here for more information.
PETS: Pets become part of the family so why wouldn’t we keep track of their well-being just like your humans? This week’s Product of the Week will help you keep track of everything from medical records to training to insurance and pet care information. There’s even a spot to list your pet’s favorite toys! Just $8.00 for this cool booklet! Click here for more information.
OFFICE STORAGE: Create a gorgeous desk space and store your children’s artwork and school memories in these beautiful boxes. The boxes are high-quality made with fabric-textured, laminated paper from See Jane Work. Available in four colors and measure 3.5″ high x 11.75″ wide x 18.75″ long so they’ll hold large kid collages or use for love letters, your personal mementos from a trip, or cherished cards made by your children. Click here for more information.
PROJECTS: Do you suffer from paper clutter due to the number of projects you have floating around your home or office? The Project Envelopes are a great way to keep those project papers from being “piled” and co-mingled. These clear pockets allow you to easily grab for what you need when making time to work on a particular project. Also, label the folders for easy identification. Available in both clear and see-through purple. Measures approximately 9.75″ x 12.75″.
Here are some additional ideas for how to use them:
Office Solution: Use Project Envelopes to color code projects or prioritize inter-office mail.
- Use clear for “Information Only” documents
- Use purple for ‘Read and File’ documents
Home Solution: More durable and protective than flimsy paper folders, use Project Envelopes for:
- Keeping homework and reports together
- Sending notes to the teacher
- For keeping flyers, newsletters, and reminders in view
KIDS: Then you’ve got lots of paperwork. The Your School Stuff from Buttoned up has everything from lunch menus to field trip permission forms to fundraisers. Here’s a great way to organize and compartmentalize these forms so everything gets signed, sealed and delivered back to school, if needed, without missing an important deadline. With compartments for up to three children you can sort out the stuff you need to keep, the stuff you need to return, and the stuff you need to just toss in the recycling bin. All for just $20. Click here for more details.
LETTER WRITING: In an effort to help my children understand and become more considerate (not that they aren’t already) and to uphold the art of letter writing, I recently added to their chore charts that they send one hand written card per week to anyone they choose. When I noticed the newly-introduced Jonathan Adler cards, I chose them as this week’s Product of the Week. For just $15.00, you’ll receive 16 cards with envelopes for birthdays, congratulations, thank you and–my favorite–just because.
STORAGE: With bathing suit season just around the corner, this week’s product is the Bungalow Junque Trunk made by Scout, which makes fantastically well-made products. Get your beach gear organized in this funky container so at a moment’s notice, you’re ready for the beach or pool. Put on a shelf in the closet or in your trunk for that spontaneous swim. Don’t forget your beach chair! The Bungalow Junque Trunk is collapsible, so when you’re not using it, it stores easily. Click here for more information.
REDUCE, RECYCLE, REUSE: Be a bag lady with these cool reusable bags from Baggu. Much better than continuing to accumulate plastic bags! Be prepared! Great to keep in your car or handbag for those unexpected moments when you need to carry items kids collect while out-and-about or when shopping at the grocery store. The nylon bags fit into a compact pouch when not in use. Each bag holds 20 lbs. Item #0335. Click here for more information and to order.
