As I’ve mentioned, I recently returned from the annual conference of the National Association of Professional Organizers (NAPO) in Scottsdale, Arizona.
One of the highlights of the conference is the product expo. There were three new products this year that deserve mention due to their creativity and usefulness.
Wrap iT is billed as “the world’s greatest gift wrap organizer.” It holds and protects wrapping paper, gift bags, tissue paper, bows, ribbon, greeting cards, etc., all in one place. No more crushed and dusty wrapping paper rolls! I love this product for space-starved New Yorkers because it hangs in the closet like a garment bag. The Wrap iT comes in two sizes: the original is 33 1/2 inches long, and the deluxe is 44 1/2 inches long (for those extra long rolls).
Check out the Wrap iT here. Want to save some money? Use the coupon code NAPO2014 to purchase the Wrap iT at 40% off!
My Wardrobe Genie is “a complete closet organizing toolkit”. Boston-based professional organizer Susan Terkanian created this product to support her three-step process — Discern, Decide, and Donate/Discard — for weeding out the unlovables from your closet. It’s a simple process that you can work into your daily routine as you get dressed. I like this product because it dovetails with my recent advice to keep only those clothes that make you look great (see “You Look Marvelous!“)
My Wardrobe Genie will be available for purchase on-line in mid-Jul. In the meantime, see it here.
Move-N-Order is the brainchild of professional organizer Maria White and was designed to guarantee a stress-free move to a new home. It is “a color-coded moving system created to ensure every box and piece of furniture gets into the correct location.” The Move-N-Order kit consists of color-coded stickers for your boxes and furniture, which correspond to each room. Numbers on the furniture stickers, and on the corresponding floor plan, easily indicate where each piece of furniture is to be placed. You can purchase the Move-N-Order kit at www.movenorder.com.
I continue to be in awe of the creativity of my colleagues!
