In February I picked up this monster at the local grocery store. It’s a special addition magazine/book hybrid put out by MSLO in the winter…I’m sure to capture all of the people with organizing resolutions in the new year. I like to keep an organized home. It makes it easier to keep clean if everything has a designated spot, and it makes you reduce clutter if you’re constantly evaluating the systems you have in place. That’s why I was so excited to see Martha’s new line at Staples designed specifically for home organizing.
Admittedly, the line has many more items then just for the home office. It features ingenious options for the kitchen, pantry, and anywhere else you need a little organization. The line features furniture as well. This chair, desk, file cabinet combo are for sale on Staples.com
What caught my attention first though, was the line of shagreen leather organizing boxes. They come in three colors: white, Tifffany blue, and brown.
I immediately grabbed 6 of these in the white. While I adore Tiffany Blue, it’s not really the look I’m going for in my office, and white is truly my favorite color.
These are great for desk supplies or jewelery. I’d like to put some on my husbands dresser for him to organize his ever growing mountain of receipts, coins, golf tees, etc…
A cute little box for pencils or makeup brushes. Or maybe some brightly colored sharpies, depending on your business?
All the pieces in the line are stack-able so you can configure them to fit your needs.
She also has great filing pieces that you can cut down on paper clutter with. Remember, experts say you only need to save 7 years worth of bank statements, tax receipts and returns. Not 20 years in an overflowing Sephora shopping bag like my mother does. Hi mom!
I thought these were just incredibly smart. What a great way to corral take-out menus, recipes, coupons etc…
To manage day-to-day tasks the line has a variety of options for calendars, planners and agendas.
Dry-erase calendars and lists.
The turquoise notepad made it’s way on to my fridge.
These journals and notepads come in a variety of different sizes and for various functions. They have everything from diet journals and day planners to diary’s and address books.
Some of them feature the shagreen leather to coordinate with the desk accessories.
The most fun part of the line are the labels. They seriously have a sticker for every situation you could encounter.
Files, pantry, or stationary.
I totally bought these. I’m sick of looking at my detergent containers and want to decant the powders into glass jars. These will look perfect on them.
They have a ton of gift tags in the line. I think they’re not only going after gifting customers, but also people with home-based retail businesses.
Because, how cute would these be for a farmer’s market vendor?
These are for the address books to call out important items.
Lots of labels for the kitchen and pantry.
I need to go back and get some of these for the freezer.
Lastly, labels for the home. I’m not sure I like these stickers on the boxes. The boxes are pretty substantial looking and I think the stickers cheapen them.
I bought these in brass for them instead. I also bought a dozen for my recipe binders.
I’m so glad Staples partnered with Martha on this line. I hope they continue adding items because the possibilities are endless and with Martha leaving Macy’s and her future at JCP uncertain I think there is a huge market for this line to expand into. What’s your favorite item in the line? Leave it in the comments and I’ll randomly pick a winner for the planner in the color of their choice!
*Martha nor Staples have any idea who I am…I just like to give gifts and it’s a way for all you lurkers to finally comment!
