One day I started noticing that I would put all my mail, paperwork, and “junk drawer” items in the same spot on my countertop, right next to my coffee pot. After a couple of weeks, the pile would become so large that I would be forced to go through it. Throw out what needed to be trashed or find that reminder of an upcoming bill. As soon as I would have the pile under control, a couple of weeks would go by again and I would be faced with the same problem. This growing pile of important papers and objects that I needed to organize just kept being pushed aside. It took until I had company coming over that I couldn’t delay finding a solution any longer.
I remember the “Sunday Basket” idea and I grabbed one of my Pop n’ Store boxes and placed it on my counter to use as a dropbox. “Why didn’t I do this sooner,” I thought to myself.
Right now, I think most of us can relate to the abundance of papers related to back to school. Is your counter-top getting more cluttered as the weeks roll on? School supply lists, vaccination paperwork, meet the teacher – the list goes on. Whether your organization system works best for a drop off box or you need more of a filing system Pop n’ Store has the perfect box to fit your needs. We developed 5 different sizes with 6 different color options.
But we soon realized that we had room to grow within our storage box venture. So, we went back to the drawing board and came up with three new boxes. We showed these boxes for the first time while at NAPO’s conference in Pittsburgh.’all might have gotten to see these up close!) The favorite (by far out of the three boxes) was our new file box! And w(hat better time for us to launch our new product than with back to school.
What we love about this box is that you can hide all your paperwork and still have everything right where you need it. No eyesore with Pop n’ Store. For example, take all your paperwork that you have stacked somewhere. Start by sorting out all the paper by what stays and what can be thrown away. The information that stays, put into alike piles.
Designate a couple of files for school, extracurricular activities, and school checklists. Then you have other files that you can use for organizing bills, home maintenance projects, or recipes.
Find which box fits your needs the best. Maybe that’s having a document box on your countertop or having a file system in place.
