Organizing Products from the NAPO Conference
Take a sneak peek look at some of the latest gadgets in the market
The National Association of Professional Organizers (NAPO) meets each year to learn about the organizing and productivity industry. We all are so organized we walk into the conference in alphabetical order! Just kidding, we’re there to learn, network and have fun.
Each year at the NAPO Expo, vendors gather to show us their wares. Here are a few of my favorite products—
Smead Adjustable Frames for Hanging Files-This expandable file holder would fit great on a bookshelf, on a credenza or even on a desktop. Great for the visual person who needs to see files and have them close by. http://www.smead.com/
If you’ve put together a bankers box more than once in your life, you were probably putting together a box by a company called Fellowes. Bankers boxes, there not pretty but they are functional. Fellowes now has boxes that are functional and pretty. More for a closet than an office but nice nonetheless. http://www.bankersbox.com/us/en/solutionscenter/Pages/sofi.aspx
Awards are given at the Expo and this year NEET Cable Keepers won an award for new product. If you hate all those knotted up wires, their product is a great alternative. neetproducts.com/
Pendeflex is always extremely generous by giving attendees a bag full of products to try. Check out their site at pendaflex.com/ Here are my favs.
Wow, these are bright!
Wow! These are confidential. Use these sleeves for confidential files that might be left of a desk.
Lose your keys often? Can’t find your cell phone? Use Smeads Stick and Finds. These will track the object you are looking for so you can find it easily.
