A good tip for magazines that are current reading material is to store them wherever you tend to do most of your reading. Here, a basket next to the sofa makes them easily accessible, perfect for reading while lounging:
Maybe you have a desk that has built-in storage, like the one shown above right (lucky!). Since chances are you don’t, you could consider creating your own storage using display shelves. A magazine wall like this one shown below would be perfect for an office or breakfast nook:

I’m one who loves lists (and have a feeling many of you do as well!) so today I want to share with you my round-up of 10 stylish list pads. Whether it’s a to-do list, shopping list, or simply a list of things to remember, it’s nice to organize and mind dump everything onto paper, especially onto pretty paper like this:
1-the long list, 2- to-do adhesive notes, 3- ‘get it done’ notepad, 4- orange zig zag photo pad, 5- striped notepad, 6- oxford pad, 7- peacock pad, 8- happy notes, 9- recycled paper market list , 10-market shopping pad
Tell me, do you love lists? Do you have a favorite list pad for jotting them all down?
Fun little clips for stylishly sorting through paperwork and clearly identifying the priority and importance of each file or document:
As soon as I heard about this from my friend Maggie, I got so excited (yes I’m an organizing geek!). I went this weekend to Staples to check it out in person and I loved what I saw – beautiful boxes, binders, notebooks, desktop accessories, dividers, labels, files:
1- stackable organizers, 2-box, 3-binders, 4- journal, 5-dividers, 6-accordion file, 7- binder accessories, 8- sheet protectors, 9- journal, 10- red bands, 11-kraft labels, 12-file folder labels, 13-color coding labels, 14-kitchen labels, 15- dry erase decal, 16- pocket
Love the idea of using a vintage toast rack as a way to beautifully organize mail or neatly hold stationary:

Secretary desks are so great for adding some function to a little corner. They provide plenty of concealed storage and the hinged desktop surface can be folded up when not in use.

Like the idea of concealing office storage (and injecting some color into the space!) with a beautiful curtain:

One week from today (on Sept. 13) the highly anticipated Missoni for Target line will be available. I personally am excited for all the colorful home accessories. Love that they’ve included stylish storage pieces in the mix Can’t wait to see them in person!
Love the way a grouping of matching pencils in a single color looks. They make a stylish and functional desk accessory. White ones seem to look particularly chic:
