2017 is a Great Time to Get Organized

7 Jan

Organizers and CalendarsDid you make any resolutions this year?  Two resolutions, Health and Organization –  as NBC News reported on data pulled from Google by iQuanti – are the most popular resolutions in 2017.

  • Get Healthy
    62,776,640 searches, a 13.77 percent increase over last year during the same time period, when it was searched 55,177,290 times.
  • Get Organized
    33,230,420 searches, dipping by 7.41 percent compared to last year’s tally of 35,888,700.

Getting healthy is a very popular theme at this time of year.  After a couple months of celebrations, parties and entertaining, it’s easy to add a few pounds to the scale.  So this is a great time to drop that weight so it doesn’t accumulate over time.  And it’s also the perfect time to not just lose a few pounds, but create a program for total fitness.  The trend to fitness and strength is everywhere as skinny isn’t the big thing – it’s all about being strong.

With new goals in place and the year starting off, for many, time management is a priority.  Year after year, getting organized is a popular resolution.  But what’s the best way to do that?  For some, it’s as easy as using a Google or Yahoo calendar which can also be viewed on a cel phone.  For others, seeing an old school paper reminder right in front of them is the key to success.

Organizers and CalendarsWe offer  calendars and activity pads that can be easily used to stay on schedule.  They are a good way to kick off 2017 and a perfect present for yourself and the ones you love.  You can easily stay organized with a schedule pad for individual activities, meal planning calendars, family schedule pads, grocery lists, team practice pads or chore charts.

For kids, organizing homework assignments, activities and other events are difficult too.  Many like to help their kids with the use of a scheduler that is themed especially with colorful designs and columns that are easy to use.  We offer many designs to select from such as emojis, baseball, soccer and more.  These make it much easier to stay organized.

Have a very happy and healthy 2017!

Best wishes,

Renee

Introducing Greenery

17 Dec

PMS Color of The Year - GreeneryEach year Pantone announces the Color of the Year.  For 2017 the new color is called Greenery.

The meaning behind this pick, according to Pantone, relates to its refreshing and revitalizing shade.  They contend that Greenery is symbolic of new beginnings needed as the public yearns for reassurance amid a tumultuous social and political environment.

The Pantone Color Institute is a superior supplier of color measurements widely used by designers to “color match” specific colors.

Does this color evoke feelings of spring, nature, reinvigoration for you?  We think it does and we’re very excited about this new color. We invite you to create some products that create your own feeling of nature and vitality.

Here are some pretty personalized gifts like the green and gold note cards and notepads above by Anna Griffin and the green chevron napkins and guest towels by Caspari that celebrate a gorgeous greenery-type color which lends itself to many color combinations found in nature.

Best wishes for happy new beginnings in 2017.

Renee
