Nifty office supplies showcased at NAPO Conference 2012

Every year the National Association of Professional Organizers (NAPO) hosts its annual organizing conference in a different city. This year it was in Baltimore. Can you imagine 800+ organizing and productivity professionals from around the world in one spot?! It’s a great time to gain valuable information from workshops as well as examine both “old stand-bys” and new products that are showcased in the Expo Hall.

Here are some of the noteworthy office supplies I took for a test drive:

Post-It Filing TabsPost-It Filing Tabs – If you lose track (what?!?) of the file tabs that are supposed to go into the folder slots, you can use these tabs as a substitute and even move them around.

Post-It Storage Container Label PadsPost-It Storage Container Label Pads – Have you ever changed your mind about where you wanted a label placed? These labels can stick to plastic or canvas, and they are easy to remove without leaving adhesive behind.

Pendaflex Earthwise

Pendaflex: I consistently recommend their products because of their durability. For my green friends out there, they have a 100% recycled line called Earthwise. I also want to publicly thank Pendaflex’s parent company, Esselte, for supporting the volunteer efforts of NAPO’s Quantum Leap program!

arc customized system from Staples  arc – This system isn’t brand new, but it hasn’t quite developed a rabid following yet. It’s totally customizable, so you can create the calendar/to-do list/note-taking system that works for you. It’s available only at Staples. As with all calendar/task list systems, it only works if you use it. (Mmhmm, that’s right!)




Coming next week: digital calendaring systems
