Product Review: Dymo LabelManager 260P

I was recently asked to review a new label maker on the market, the Dymo LabelManager 260P. As those who know me, know that a label maker is one of my favorite organizing “toys”, oh, I mean “tools”, I jumped at the chance. The Dymo LabelManager 260P is compact, portable, and easy to use. Its… Read more

Organizing Product Review: Pendaflex PileSmart

Yesterday I posted about two products I used recently to help someone who was a self-professed “piler” organize his piles of paper.

How to Pile, Instead of File, If You Must

Driven to Distraction

In 2007 in Washington State a law passed that made it illegal to talk on a cell phone while driving without a head-set. However, it was a secondary offense, meaning one could only get a ticket if there was another infraction committed, such as speeding, or swerving. The legislators noticed that despite the law, there… Read more

Product Review: Smead SuperTab Folders

We recently posted a product review of Smead’s Stadium File. Today we’ll review their SuperTab Folders. An alternate to a traditional file folder, the SuperTab Folders’ primary differentiating factor is the size of the tab found at the top of the folder.

I didn’t want to do it

I didn’t want to do it, but I’m glad I did. As you may remember, I’m training for a half marathon that takes place in late June. I have a plan – a specific training plan that spells out what distances I will run on which particular days. In my head, I know that sticking… Read more
