It is always fun to see the product expo at the National NAPO conference. Here is a roundup of a few things that made my short list this year.
1. Mainetti Hangers. You might be thinking, “hangers, really?”. But these hangers are definitely a luxe item that can really finish a closet, and perhaps make putting away our clothes a little more enjoyable. They are completely customizable. You choose the hanger finish, body type, color. You can also add non-slip features such as applied coatings (rubber/wax/velvet flocking, etc). And for a real splurge, you can have them engraved at the nape! Worth checking out. They can be found at Nordstrom or mainetti.com.
2. Creative Options craft boxes. I’m a sucker for compartmentalized containers. I think that is why I was interested in my dad’s fishing tackle boxes growing up! Anyhoo, these configuration of the containers are customizable, and they look great. They start with project boxes that are specific to your craft type (paper/beading/sewing, etc) and can insert into various types of carrying cases and stackable storage. Very smart.
3. Samsill Essential Pop-Up Box. I like that these do not take up space when they are not in use. Great for documents and photos, and sturdy enough for more substantial items.
4. Time Timer Clock. This clock helps us experience time visually! A great product for those struggling to grasp the concept of time and how it impacts our activities.
5. Pendaflex has thought of another great way to store and organize our papers INSIDE the folders! Available in vinyl and stock options. Great for business and client presentations.
6. SafeRacks. Not a “new” product, but still a favorite. These ceiling-mounted shelves provide excellent storage in garages and outbuidings.
7. Lock and Rollin Floor Solutions. A great way to cover attic floors to allow for storage. This option is portable and reusable and comes in long rolling strips!

Do you keep supplements and/or meds in the pantry, or utility closet, or in a designated medicine cabinet in the kitchen or mudroom? Wherever they may be, chances are it is an area that becomes unruly quickly. Small bottles, awkward packaging, and measuring tools don’t rest well on shelves. We have a few tricks for keeping the meds […]

Whether you love record keeping or hate it, it is that time of year that we all have to do it; or at least, think about doing it. Pulling together tax documentation can be a daunting task, but it doesn’t have to be. There is a simple formula for keeping financial paperwork throughout the year. […]

We’ve had questions about what products we might suggest to help store toys so that they fit well in the play room, in response to last week’s blog. In general, look for furniture that takes advantage of vertical space–not just low-to-the ground storage; make sure there are varied depths of bins or shelves to harbor everything […]

Frequently I hear my clients say that the play room always looks like an explosion. Kids toys often are stored at kid height along the perimeter of rooms nearly encasing the entire space with what can feel like continuous clutter. So many toys these days require their own floor space like doll houses, and play […]
