Increase productivity with Evernote during the holidays

This time of year, especially because of the holidays, my calendar begins filling up with lots of  “to-do’s” such as client events, shopping trips and out-of-town travel. In the past, having a hectic schedule made it even harder to remember things like directions to a party, gift ideas, and people to add to my holiday card list. Most of […]

Keeping track of gifts received

When opening presents during birthday parties, wedding or baby showers, and the holidays, use small mailing labels to jot down the name of the giver and stick it on the gift so you can track who gave what.

Organized Food On-the-Go

One of my favorite ways to store and tote my snacks and lunches is by using Fit & Fresh containers. Removable ice packs keep food chilled and the containers are sized and labeled so you know exactly how much you’re packing which is especially helpful for portion control. Fit & Fresh keeps your food items separate, but […]

But these are just temporary galleries – pieces should be stored to make room for new ones. Schoolfolio is the storage solution that organizes and protects art, schoolwork, report cards, class photos, and other keepsakes from […]
