For those (like me) engaged in the Sisyphean task of organizing household baggage, I urge you to rush to Staples and check out Martha Stewart’s new line of home office products. I stumbled on them accidentally while looking for book plates to attach to file boxes. The aisles of impersonal and uninspiring office supplies offered nothing, so I decided to check the scrapbooking department of the local craft store. Before departing, I made a final sweep through the electronics department and that’s where I saw Martha Stewart’s new products, set up in an ad hoc display next to computer accessories.
I was smitten with the functional and beautiful system of organization Martha Stewart created. The labels, tags, bands, binders, accordion files, sticky notes, and dry erase decals are exquisite and more attractive than the usual school supply stuff. The products are innovative and enchanting; for example, chalkboard labels you can write on!
Avery is a partner in the venture and you can see the entire line at their website.
Yes, I found exactly what I wanted. Now my project boxes are labeled in a lovely, Martha Stewart-esque way.
