Did you know that organized people save time? It’s because they’re not always searching for things. The National Association of Professional Organizers say, “Organized people save time and money and reduce stress and frustration levels. There is no one right or wrong way to get organized. Organizing systems help you deal with everything from your paper to your professional responsibilities and give you parameters on what to keep, what to toss and what to take action.” Now, you may be asking yourself what is an organization system? The answer to that is it’s totally up to you. Your personality, environment, and personal style will help you come up with an organization system that’s perfect for you. Basically, it doesn’t matter how you de-clutter your space as long as you do it. By getting organized you’ll save time, stress and probably even a little money. Evaluate your space: where’s the mess? Do you have a place by the door where you toss your mail, keys and whatever else you have in your hands when you walk in? Instead of having a heap of stuff on that table, why not have a bowl or basket for the miscellaneous items. Hang a hook...Read More

The colors you like actually say quite a bit about who you are as a person.

In today’s age of quick and simple online communications it would certainly seem that way at times. The thought of personalized stationery may seem slow or outdated. The number of people leaving personalized calling cards or brunch invitations being sent on monogrammed, embossed or printed paper seems to be dwindling. Today, websites allow you to coordinate party invitations and responses entirely online and job hunting sites have turned resumes into an online phenomenon. So where does personalized stationery fit in a world driven by the simplicity of online activity? It was not long ago that Emily Post was warning people that a telephone call would not replace the need for a formal thank you note, and still today it is common knowledge that a phone call does not express the same personal feeling that makes receiving stationery special. Today, thank you messages and common correspondences are being expressed via email. This is easy to understand considering the speed and ease in which these messages can be exchanged. However, Miss Manners and personnel recruiters reaffirm Emily Post’s thoughts that nothing makes a great impression like a well written, hand written letter on personalized stationery. There is no denying it; there is something about receiving a letter...Read More
