$100 Giveaway (Martha Stewart Home Office Collection with Avery)

With the holidays just around the corner, it makes me breathe a bit easier when things like packaging and mailing out gifts is made simpler with gorgeous products to help keep me organized. This year, I’m thrilled to have received and be using beautiful and functional holiday and organizational products from the Martha Stewart Home OfficeTM with AveryTM collection.  If you need to get control of your holidays this year too, you can find the Martha Stewart Home Office with Avery line exclusively at Staples (available online and in-store).  

Since I recently redid my home office, I’m using it as command central for all things holiday related.  Keeping my desk clean and clutter free is priority number one in helping to maintain sanity when things feel out of control.  I’m so happy that the Martha Stewart Home Office with Avery collection has such functional and pretty things to help keep my life organized!
I used the Stack+FitTM modular system from Martha Stewart Home Office with Avery as “home base” to hold all of my items in preparation for mailing Christmas cards.  I like how the Stack+Fit has three dividers of different sizes so I can customize it to fit what I need.  
I’ve got markers and packing tape (isn’t that the cutest packing tape ever?!) in the small compartment, postcards in the adjoining slot and Martha Stewart Home Office with Avery padded envelopes and printable mailing labels in the large compartment in back. The labels and padded envelope are so festive in their candy cane colors, I don’t have to worry about making my packages pretty.  
I’ve got lots of photos I’ll be printing and sending this year to relatives that prefer printed (as opposed to emailed) photos of James, so I’m happy to have these red and white striped padded mailers to send them in.  I think it’s so fun to receive a gift like this in the mail, and the fun packaging adds to the beauty of the gift inside.  
The Stack + Fit also has a companion pocket that you can hang on the wall to keep important documents and papers off of your table tops and counters.  It comes with matching push pins so you can hang the pockets on walls or corkboards.  If you don’t want to use a push pin, you can use the attached adhesive to adhere it to metal, wood, glass, and tile; the adhesive will remove cleanly from smooth surfaces.  It’s really a lifesaver that comes in various sizes and colors to meet your specific needs.  
I had no idea that Martha Stewart Home Office with Avery was making gorgeous wrapping paper, too!  I love to coordinate presents, and these papers are not only pretty, but durable, too.  The Paper Gift Tags are so cute in their stocking, mitten, and rectangle shapes. You can write right on them and they won’t smudge.  The holiday line is available in-store at Staples.

Let's be friends!

    Lists, lists and more lists. Love those gift tags!

  2. November 14, 2012 / 3:06 pm

    This line at Staples totally rocks!! I stay organized by keeping a gift list for people we need to buy for, and how much we plan on spending. This helps us keep our budget in check!

  3. November 14, 2012 / 3:07 pm

    This would be awesome! I'm in the middle of redoing my office and this Martha Stewart line would be perfect.

  4. November 14, 2012 / 3:08 pm

    I make lists galore! It's not incredibly organized, but it somehow works out πŸ™‚ Thanks for the chance to win!

  5. November 14, 2012 / 3:11 pm

    I try to start early every year to avoid the madness!!!!

  6. November 14, 2012 / 3:13 pm

    Hi there!!!! I absolutely love your blog and thanks for the giveaway. I love to stay organized during the Christmas season by keeping everything tucked away in a little room in my basement that is home to the gift wrap,bows, ribbon, scissors, etc. It also holds all the gifts and is lockable!!! It is a one stop shop, so to speak!

  7. November 14, 2012 / 3:14 pm

    I stay orgaized by making lists and crossing things off when finished.

  8. November 14, 2012 / 3:14 pm

    Wow-love Martha, as always! Great giveaway!

  9. November 14, 2012 / 3:15 pm

    I try and get as much done in the first week of December! I set goals like get holiday cards in the mail, have all my shopping done, etc. There's always things that unexpectedly come up, so I feel more calm during the hectic season.

  10. November 14, 2012 / 3:16 pm

    I organized all my wrapping paper and gift supplies recently. I love the new Martha Stewart line!

  11. November 14, 2012 / 3:16 pm

    Lists, lists and more lists.

  12. November 14, 2012 / 3:17 pm

    I like to make a list/spreadsheet of gifts and how much they cost so I can see if I'm sticking to my budget!

  13. November 14, 2012 / 3:28 pm

    Love this. I keep all my wrapping essentials in a couple pretty boxes on a shelf in a utility closet. I make sure tape, scissors and all are at ready.

  14. November 14, 2012 / 3:31 pm

    I stay organized by starting on the holidays early and making lots of lists.

  15. November 14, 2012 / 3:31 pm

    I make tons of lists and keep one closet dedicated to wrapping supplies and gifts. When I get a spare minute, I go to the closet, pull out a gift or two, some wrapping paper, tape, scissors, etc. and get to work! Love the Martha Stewart line!!

  16. November 14, 2012 / 3:36 pm

    I stay organized by keeping the house picked up at all times. Holiday's tend to be so busy and it's easy to have stuff everywhere. Having everything tidy helps me stay focused.

  17. November 14, 2012 / 3:37 pm

    I stay organized by starting early–I make my list of gift recipients, gift ideas, and budgeted items in November. If I forget someone, it's easier to build them in (and not blow my budget)!

  18. November 14, 2012 / 3:38 pm

    I am a list maker, I have several for the holidays and my shopping list usually starts in July as I think about what gifts I would like to give.

  19. November 14, 2012 / 3:40 pm

    Lists, lists, and more lists! I also try to keep all the gifts I buy (throughout the year) in one central closet location. My system isn't perfect but it works pretty well.

  20. November 14, 2012 / 3:41 pm

    Oh how I love Martha and her collections. I stay organized by making lists and deadlines.

  21. November 14, 2012 / 3:42 pm

    Oh how I love Martha and her collections. I stay organized by creating lists and deadlines.

  22. November 14, 2012 / 3:45 pm

    I use the 'Reminders' app on my iphone to make lists of things to do/gifts to buy!

  23. November 14, 2012 / 3:46 pm

    Lists and making sure everything is organized when I put it away the year before. I also don't buy many gifts but when I do they get sticky notes until they are wrapped so I don't forget.


  24. November 14, 2012 / 3:48 pm

    I use a spreadsheet to keep track of all gift-related information – who I need to buy for, the budget, what I have purchased and from where, etc…

  25. November 14, 2012 / 3:54 pm

    My husband and I create a spreadsheet on Google docs to keep track of gifts. We have one tab for his family and one tab for my family.

  26. November 14, 2012 / 3:55 pm

    I create a gift wrap center for Christmas stuff and line up gift tags, gift wrap, and gift idea lists! Love this giveaway!

  27. November 14, 2012 / 3:59 pm

    Stay organized during the holidays? Is that possible? Haha..I've tried many different things but I've found just planning in advance and keeping an updated calendar is very helpful!

  28. November 14, 2012 / 4:00 pm

    I just built a wrapping station on the back of my basement door to help me keep organized.
    Love this line.. love everything you do! so inspirational!

  29. November 14, 2012 / 4:01 pm

    Ahhh what a great giveaway! I love ALL the Martha Stewart products! =)

    I stay organized during the holidays with SO many lists. Lists for gifts, lists of stores to shop in, etc etc etc…

  30. November 14, 2012 / 4:03 pm

    I wrap all my gifts as soon as I get them home, and put them under the tree! I keep all my giftwrap stuff in a storage bag. It's so nice to not have to go rummage for tape and scissors and tags every time!

  31. November 14, 2012 / 4:04 pm

    I keep a constant "to do" list and a "to buy" list and a "need" list. If I don't, I will always forget something.

  32. November 14, 2012 / 4:07 pm

    I make Looooong List! I have lots of little picky people in my family so I get them all the same things, like pajamas, socks, crafty things different designs but everyone gets the same thing. Works great and if they want to switch thats up to them πŸ™‚

  33. November 14, 2012 / 4:08 pm

    LOVE this collection! I would love to win, so I can get organized!

  34. November 14, 2012 / 4:10 pm

    I like to make list for everything, and for Christmas I have lots of little picky people to buy for so instead of "his is better than mine fuss" I like to get them all the same thing! Like pajamas, socks, crafty things I may get them in different designs and if they want to switch after unwrapping than its fine by me, but they all get even gifts πŸ™‚

  35. November 14, 2012 / 4:10 pm

    I make lists on every scrap of paper I have! Also, Martha Stewart Notebooks come in so many great sizes that they are perfect for list making!

  36. November 14, 2012 / 4:11 pm

    I have a book that contains the list of to whom I send Christmas cards and their addresses. I have a book with list for each week for what needs to be done and then I also list for whom I am purchasing gifts or making gifts. I also have a gift closet.

  37. November 14, 2012 / 4:12 pm

    I keep all my wrapping supplies in one location near a good wrapping surface. That way, when I have to wrap something unexpectedly, I don't have to try to pull everything out. I just keep it all out in one organized bin until the holidays are over.

  38. November 14, 2012 / 4:21 pm

    I would LOVE to win this prize. Organizational products and Martha? A true match made in heaven. πŸ™‚

  39. November 14, 2012 / 4:26 pm

    I didn't even know about this collection! Thank you. I just make tons of lists. But really, it's not crazy. Just writing it down helps me remember. πŸ™‚

  40. November 14, 2012 / 4:28 pm

    I stay organized by making list! It is the only way!

  41. November 14, 2012 / 4:30 pm

    I like to organize all my presents for people by putting a sticky note on them with their name on the present and placing them in a special place in my guest room closet. This way when I go to wrap everything is in one place!

  42. November 14, 2012 / 4:30 pm

    I keep a clipboard with names/addresses for Christmas cards and a separate clipboard with gifts purchased and amount spent on each recipient. Eelsesser@me.com

  43. November 14, 2012 / 4:32 pm

    I keep separate clipboards for Christmas cards, running tabs of gifts, and to-do lists. Keeps me up to date and on budget.

  44. November 14, 2012 / 4:38 pm

    I do most of my shopping online so it makes it easy to keep all of my receipts labeled in an online folder marked Christmas 2012!!

  45. November 14, 2012 / 4:46 pm

    This would be super to help me destress about how to coordinate packaging and shipping of my holiday mail.

  46. November 14, 2012 / 4:46 pm

    Oh how I love Martha! πŸ™‚

  47. November 14, 2012 / 4:48 pm

    I like to buy as much as possible as early as possible and get ahread!

  48. November 14, 2012 / 4:49 pm

    i make spreadsheets and have them accessible on my iphone so i can glance at them when i'm out and about shopping! thanks for this opportunity! πŸ™‚

  49. November 14, 2012 / 4:54 pm

    The only way i've figured out thus far, is to make a list in my iphone and write ideas for peoples christmas gifts as they pop into my head. Then when Christmas comes, I don't feel so scatter brained!

  50. November 14, 2012 / 4:55 pm

    boxes- in my closet, to hide presents for each kid, one in my craft room for decorations and new supplies and lots of lists!

  51. November 14, 2012 / 4:57 pm

    I love these! I make lists for everyone… and a price point I'm looking for per person!

  52. November 14, 2012 / 5:00 pm

    wow….this is so cool!

  53. November 14, 2012 / 5:04 pm

    Ah, this is so fabulous! LOVE all of Martha's line…so, so wonderful!!

  54. November 14, 2012 / 5:14 pm

    I keep organized with lists! Since we are building our home this year things are not quite as I would usually keep them. We are going to streamline and send New Year/We're Moving cards in one (no Christmas because of the move)!

    As for gifts, we both have small families and I only buy gifts for 2 of my best girlfriends. Altogether, totaling 14 gifts. I make a giant batch of biscotti for the office and my other friends. We'll see what happens as the move in date approaches sometime in early December!

  55. November 14, 2012 / 5:17 pm

    I usually am a list/budgeting person. Since we are finishing up construction on our home, I am not as organized as I usually am. This year to streamline, we are doing Happy New Year/We've Moved cards because Christmas will just be too hectic with the early December move.

    When it comes to gifts, we have small families so there are only 12 gifts total and I get my 2 best girlfriends gifts. Otherwise, I make a giant batch of Christmas biscotti to hand out to everyone else in our life.

  56. November 14, 2012 / 5:18 pm

    I try to stay organized with lists and just taking one thing at a time. I learn to say no to the unnecessary.

  57. November 14, 2012 / 5:21 pm

    I'm a big list maker so my husband and I share lists using the Reminders app in our iPhones. It helps SO much during this crazy time.

  58. November 14, 2012 / 5:25 pm

    I loved to make lists and I find it to be the simplist way to stay organized!

    I love all things Martha Stewart!

  59. November 14, 2012 / 5:29 pm

    I keep a list on my phone of gift ideas and the list of people I need to buy gifts for. It is always with me. I also keep an envelope of coupons in my purse to use while shopping!

  60. November 14, 2012 / 5:30 pm

    I keep a list on my phone of gift ideas and people I need to buy gifts for. I also keep an envelope of coupons to use while shopping this holiday season.

  61. November 14, 2012 / 5:32 pm

    I love this! I stay organized throughout the holidays with my handy Excel spreadsheets. I. Love. Spreadsheets.

  62. November 14, 2012 / 5:36 pm

    I try to have a place for everything, and lots of lists.
    Great giveaway!

  63. November 14, 2012 / 5:38 pm

    Thanks! I love making lists (but my husband does not)

  64. November 14, 2012 / 5:43 pm

    I stay organized by making my shopping lists earlier in the year and then shopping in store or online in november when the deals r good. Don't wait till last minute!

  65. November 14, 2012 / 5:49 pm

    I am an organization freak and this has my holiday juices flowing!!!

  66. November 14, 2012 / 5:51 pm

    What a great giveaway! I stay organizing by making a budget and a list for each person. I also looooove wrapping gifts, so I try to do that all at once instead of pulling out the wrapping supplies repeatedly.

  67. November 14, 2012 / 6:01 pm

    I love the idea of customizing Christmas labels. I ran across these the other day on the Avery website. To keep me organized best during the holidays I have to have a To-do list.

  68. November 14, 2012 / 6:02 pm

    Love MS's line of office/holiday stuff. We have a notebook with names/gifts received or ordered and have all of our wrapping stuff in one long xmas box. I LOVE to wrap so it's one of my favorite things about the holiday!

  69. November 14, 2012 / 6:07 pm

    I make a list of ideas for presents for everyone – then I usually end up losing the list so I start a new one on some scrap piece of paper in my purse πŸ™‚ I do buy and wrap early so I can relax and enjoy long lazy days with our kids when they get out of school for Christmas..

  70. November 14, 2012 / 6:14 pm

    I love to stay organized by making a list! I start with each person and then write down the first things that come to mind. Then, I categorize each item and decide where to purchase based on the best pricing!

  71. November 14, 2012 / 6:18 pm

    This line looks fabulous! Thanks for the opportunity to win it.

  72. November 14, 2012 / 6:22 pm

    I need some organization help for Christmas!

  73. November 14, 2012 / 6:23 pm

    So festive! What a great collection. I stay sane by using checklists like a crazy woman and checking them twice (or really many more times). I live by my lists for gifts, groceries, addresses, christmas cards, and so on.

  74. November 14, 2012 / 6:23 pm

    I looooove this Martha Stewart line! I think I'll go buy the wrapping paper tonight… yay!

  75. November 14, 2012 / 6:24 pm

    I love the Martha Stewart line! I was thinking of going on my lunch break. Now I'll have to go get the wrapping paper soon πŸ™‚

  76. November 14, 2012 / 6:37 pm

    These are the cutest products! Love them all.

    I keep a running list on my phone, where my kids won't stumble over it and labeled something boring (to them!) like "blog ideas," with ideas and purchased items, as well as the amount spent so I can stay on budget. Or close to budget. Ahem.

  77. November 14, 2012 / 6:46 pm

    i'm a list kind of girl. tons of lists for shopping, baking, and things to get.

  78. November 14, 2012 / 6:50 pm

    for gift giving my best friend is Excel & color coding, red for need to buy, white for an idea, yellow for purchased, green for wrapped blue for given… I do it every year, makes it all so much easier. For my homemade gifts I use the Avery make your own labels… Makes me look professional & expensive!

  79. November 14, 2012 / 6:51 pm

  80. November 14, 2012 / 6:51 pm

    Great idea to use the office caddy for holiday stuff! $100 at Staples? Um, yes please!

  81. November 14, 2012 / 6:53 pm

    Beautiful supplies! I would love to win this giveaway!


  82. November 14, 2012 / 7:02 pm

    Excel is my best friend for the holidays, especially for gift giving, I write all my recipients into categories, then I color code them by highlighting each cell. White for the idea, yellow for purchased, blue for wrapped, green for delivered! Makes it all so much easier & I can keep track of everything with so much else going on!

    I actually use the Avery labels for my homemade gifts, it makes them look more professional, less Holly Hobby and expensive HA

  83. November 14, 2012 / 7:06 pm

    I have a small notebook in my purse where I keep a list of all the people we need to buy for and ideas for gifts. I also keep all different kids of lists in my notebook so I have it with me at all times.

  84. November 14, 2012 / 7:09 pm

    Lists, lists, lists! And, a notebook that stays in my purse.

  85. November 14, 2012 / 7:15 pm

    I choose my favorite activities and only do those!

  86. November 14, 2012 / 7:17 pm

    I keep all my wrapping supplies neat and tidy in a box that I retrofitted. I also keep a running list of everything that I have bought along with prices.

  87. November 14, 2012 / 7:24 pm

    I don't do anything too creative. Just daily todo lists. Thanks for this giveaway.

  88. November 14, 2012 / 7:43 pm

    I have a coupon organizer that I keep with me all the time.

  89. November 14, 2012 / 7:44 pm

    I have a coupon organizer that I keep with me all the time!

  90. November 14, 2012 / 7:45 pm

    We have a section in our basement where we have all the gifts. We take everything out of the bags, so it's very easy to see exactly what we have. Our kids are young enough that we can keep them out of the basement, so it works!

    2u3mommy at gmail dot com

  91. November 14, 2012 / 7:57 pm

    My bedroom becomes my "command station" at Christmastime. Wrapping paper, ribbon, tape, scissors and tags are all right there for anyone to come in and use at any given time. Every time I wrap a gift for one of my kids (I have 5), I have just used a plain notepad to jot down what the gift is and how much it cost so that things stay even! (Same number of gifts to open, same dollar amount spent.) By Christmas morning – it's a MESS!!! I LOVE these products! It would sure be nice to keep things a bit more tidy this year.

  92. November 14, 2012 / 8:18 pm

    Make a list and check it twice! And start shopping early

  93. November 14, 2012 / 8:27 pm

    I use my husband's office to spread all the wrapping paper, ribbon, tape, cards, etc. . I like it because the office is attached to our master bedroom and it gives me double privacy πŸ™‚
    Wish I could add a workstation for myself and I could use this beautiful organizer
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  94. November 14, 2012 / 8:27 pm

    Make a list (or two or three) and check it twice!

  95. November 14, 2012 / 8:33 pm

    I like to make a calendar for us to refer to throughout the holidays- I write down events, but also things that need to be done by a certain day. As long as I stay on top of those daily things, life is (a little) smoother this time of year!


  96. November 14, 2012 / 8:44 pm

    I keep a small notebook in my purse where I jot down gift ideas as I think of them. I also write down purchased gifts and amounts so I can keep track of what I am spending.


  97. Colleen
    November 14, 2012 / 3:13 pm

    I had no idea there was gift wrap as part of this line either but I have to admit I am loving it and might have to make a detour to Staples! LOL.

    November 14, 2012 / 3:17 pm

    Martha just gets it right every time doesn't she?! Her line is so fun!

  99. November 14, 2012 / 9:17 pm

    The only way I stay organized: LISTS!!

  100. Melanie
    November 14, 2012 / 3:44 pm

    Lists, Lists, Lists, and I am a total fan of organizational drawers and folders. I seem to have a drawer or folder for everyone in the family!

  101. November 14, 2012 / 9:56 pm

    I have a binder where I keep all my coupons, lists by person, sizes and what I have purchased.

  102. Grace
    November 14, 2012 / 4:19 pm

    Lots of lists on my phone.

  103. Grace
    November 14, 2012 / 4:19 pm

    Lots of lists on my phone

  104. November 14, 2012 / 10:25 pm

    Keep a list in a notebook or home management binder. My binder is an essential to staying organized all year long.

  105. November 14, 2012 / 10:27 pm

    I have a holiday notebook where I keep track of everything holiday related.

  106. November 14, 2012 / 10:27 pm

    One way to stay organized is keep a list and budget written down in a notebook, or home management binder. My binder is essential in keeping me organized all year long!

  107. November 14, 2012 / 10:41 pm

    I love organization, and this line is adorable. I'd store my lists of presents, my gift tags, and have cute storage areas around the office. I just love it all!

  108. Gayle
    November 14, 2012 / 4:45 pm

    I start making the list the day of Christmas for the year before. Then I create reminders on my calender, on my phone. This helps prod me along. It really helps with remembering those great ideas for gifts you dont want to forget.

  109. November 14, 2012 / 11:17 pm

    Love martha!!!!

  110. November 14, 2012 / 11:25 pm

    I make so many lists and try to start my shopping early!!

  111. November 14, 2012 / 11:38 pm

    This set would be so fantastic in my new office. Love the line!

  112. {Hi Sugarplum!}

    I love it all!!! I would have too much fun (like, an embarrassing amount of fun) having a shopping spree at Staples. What does that mean?!!?!

  113. November 15, 2012 / 12:18 am

    Make lists and keep a budget!

  114. November 15, 2012 / 12:20 am

    I have a Christmas binder that is full of…yep, lists!

  115. November 15, 2012 / 12:22 am

    I keep all my wrapping supplies together in one container.

  116. November 15, 2012 / 12:29 am

    It's all about lists for me during the holidays (and every day)! What a great giveaway!

  117. November 15, 2012 / 12:31 am

    It's all about listed for me during the holidays (and every day)!

  118. November 15, 2012 / 12:33 am

    Perfect combo Avery and Martha! I'd loved to be so stylishly organized.
    Thanks for such a great give away!

  119. November 15, 2012 / 12:33 am

    I stay organized by storing all my gifts in an extra closet and keeping a list of what I have so I don't buy doubles.


  120. November 15, 2012 / 12:34 am

    I make lists to stay organized and make sure to check items off as the tasks are completed!

  121. November 15, 2012 / 12:41 am

    Awesome giveaway. I love organizing. Keeping my office desk area clean has made it so easy to wrap gifts easily.

  122. November 15, 2012 / 12:48 am

    This year I started my Christmas shopping early. I'm 90% done before Thanksgiving! πŸ™‚ My next goal is to set up a wrapping station in my basement and get everything wrapped Thanksgiving weekend. That way I can focus on all the birthday's we have in the month of December as well as all the Christmas traditions my family looks forward to. With a newborn this was a must this year!! Love the new lines!!

  123. November 15, 2012 / 1:12 am

    I'm crazy about organizing! You should see how everything is labeled in my kitchen and office!

  124. November 15, 2012 / 1:26 am

    LOVING this collection and your ideas!

  125. November 15, 2012 / 1:28 am

    So glad we can order online as there is no Staples locally to me.

  126. November 15, 2012 / 1:33 am

    I like to put our family heirloom ornaments in special decorative boxes as the
    they can be passed down too!

  127. November 15, 2012 / 1:39 am

    I don't stay organized during the holidays. Im usually pretty stressed out. I was supposed to have an extra bedroom, made into a craft room but it didn't happen. Oh well. Maybe next year. Guess I will be wrapping gifts on my dining room table again. I sure could use those pretty Martha S.desk organizers.

  128. November 15, 2012 / 1:44 am

    As a teacher and a mom, I love LABELS and organization! During Christmas time I love making lists and crossing things off. Working in a very low income school, I buy gifts and little presents for all my students and Martha's labels and neat supplies would be wonderful!

  129. November 15, 2012 / 1:47 am

    Lists, lists and more lists! Best part is when the list is D for DONE!!! Love this giveaway!

  130. November 15, 2012 / 1:48 am

    Lists, lists and more lists. Best part is when I can say D for DONE. Great give away!

  131. November 15, 2012 / 1:54 am

    Our family stays organized by buying presents early and storing items in
    special heirloom boxes.

  132. November 15, 2012 / 1:58 am

    I have my handy spreadsheets full of gift ideas, budgets, and what's left on the to do list.

  133. November 15, 2012 / 2:00 am

    The only way I stay organized during the holidays is by keeping a list…a list of who I need to get gifts for, what to get and check it off the list when complete. =)

  134. November 15, 2012 / 2:05 am

    I always make a list according to families. I also ask early what others want so I can keep an eye out!

  135. November 15, 2012 / 2:08 am

    I make lists and hide them because I have snoopy kids. πŸ™‚
    Also, I wrap and hide everyone's presents.

  136. EJSJ
    November 14, 2012 / 8:13 pm

    I order all my gifts online in advance!

  137. Emily
    November 14, 2012 / 8:19 pm

    Loving the lists and the stay organized office supplies! What a neat little gift wrap station you created. πŸ™‚

  138. November 15, 2012 / 2:24 am

    I keep several lists.

  139. November 15, 2012 / 2:25 am

    I use a large stand up storage container to put all of my wrapping paper in and there's a little spot on the top that holds all of the ribbons. I definitely need to get more organized with my cards though – I didn't see these when I was running through Staples the other day!

  140. November 15, 2012 / 2:40 am

    I make all year gift ideas for people so I don't have to run around in December for a gift. I don't have the patience to be on line. I am working on organizing my home office but it just not coming out right. I could use some help. Great giveaway.
    God Bless.

  141. November 15, 2012 / 2:43 am

    I keep multiple lists – one for each family, and another list for teachers, Christmas cards, bus drivers, etc. Love marking things off!

  142. November 15, 2012 / 2:48 am

    I stay organized with lists! This year, I am trying to keep lists together on my phone.

  143. November 15, 2012 / 2:52 am

    Buy throughout the year as much as possible and hide it from the kids!

  144. November 15, 2012 / 3:03 am

    I try to wrap my gifts as soon as I purchase them!

  145. Sandy A
    November 14, 2012 / 9:09 pm

    Keeping all Holiday decor, wrapping items, everything to do with the Holidays in labeled storage containers-with like things together. Makes decorating much easier and less time consuming looking for items you want to use…

  146. Sandy A
    November 14, 2012 / 9:13 pm

    Love Martha and since she is the Queen of organizing these products would be a great help in anyone's life…

  147. November 15, 2012 / 3:43 am

    I clean out all of my children's toys and donate them so that it won't be mass chaos when they receive their new gifts. And the kids enjoy the idea of knowing they are donating toys to children who need toys.

  148. November 15, 2012 / 4:01 am

    Lists galore for all of the gifts to be purchased!!!

  149. November 15, 2012 / 4:15 am

    I stay organized with gift lists. Great giveaway!! I'd love to win the giveaway to organize my office. Love the Martha Stewart collection!!

  150. November 15, 2012 / 4:32 am

    I keep track of lists in Google Docs that I share with my husband. I have him plug in the gifts he wants to get for friends and family and we cross them off as we finish – there's nothing as satisfying as crossing something off a list around the holidays (even if it's electronic)!

  151. November 15, 2012 / 4:43 am

    I display my wrapping paper in a big glass vase. It shows me the amount, so I have a visual before I run out completely!

  152. November 15, 2012 / 4:46 am

    I keep all of my wrapping paper (and wrapping accessories) in a big glass vase. It is a visual when it almost runs out, I know to buy more. Nothing worse than wanting to wrap and finding no wrapping paper.

  153. November 15, 2012 / 5:05 am

    I love to organize Christmas buy writing down what I have purchased for everyone, and wrapping it right away!

  154. November 15, 2012 / 5:34 am

    Plan early and delegate! Great products!

  155. November 15, 2012 / 6:12 am

    Lists are my go to organization tool……I love being able mark things off too.

  156. November 15, 2012 / 6:16 am

    I try to buy gifts throughout the year so I'm not stressed out & overwhelmed. Love these cute wraps and tags for them

  157. November 15, 2012 / 6:47 am

    I rely on excel spreadsheets to keep me sane!

  158. November 15, 2012 / 6:52 am

    I keep a notebook with every purchase, amount, and who it's for

  159. Patricia Reitz
    November 15, 2012 / 1:24 am

    What a great giveaway!!! The first thing I do to get organized for the holidays is make a list of what I need to do or get. That list stays with me for weeks, until every item is crossed off.

  160. November 15, 2012 / 11:10 am

    I use an ipd app which allows me to make one list to cross off as I go! No paper and no clutter!

  161. November 15, 2012 / 11:36 am

    I make a master gift list, declutter kids rooms and try to get it all done early so I can enjoy!

  162. Allison
    November 15, 2012 / 5:42 am

    What a wonderful line of products. I would love some help to become better organized with my desk. I'm a big list maker. I also tend to do holiday shopping throughout the year and have a small closet designated just for gifts. The last couple years this has worked well for me. Thanks for the opportunity on your giveaway!

  163. November 15, 2012 / 11:46 am

    I wrap presents as soon as they're purchased to avoid a Christmas Eve scramble. I guess that's more of a keeping-sane tip instead of an organizing tip! πŸ™‚ Thanks for the giveaway!


  164. November 15, 2012 / 12:44 pm

    I stay organized by not letting myself get overwhelmed. I do a little each day, so there's never a point where everything is piling up.

  165. November 15, 2012 / 12:56 pm

    Sweet giveaway! I have a mental list…it changes if I find something on sale or in the clearance section! Thanks for the chance!

  166. November 15, 2012 / 12:59 pm

    Lists, lots of lists and a wrapping station help me. Thanks for the opp to win!

  168. November 15, 2012 / 1:10 pm

    Always a list and try to start buying presents in October so I can have close to everything by December 1st!

  169. November 15, 2012 / 1:34 pm

    Keep track of what people say they want throughout the year so I don't buy random things at the last minute to fill up under the tree!

  170. November 15, 2012 / 1:41 pm

    I set up a wrapping station and wrap the gifts as I bring them home. I have a complete list of what is wrapped and what I need to purchase. Thanks for the great giveaway.

  171. November 15, 2012 / 1:44 pm

    I stay organized by making lists and checking them twice (ha ha!). I always have my lists with me so I can keep track of what I need and already have. This line from MS is too cute by the way!

  172. November 15, 2012 / 2:01 pm

    I make lots and lots of to-do lists!

  173. November 15, 2012 / 2:11 pm

    I make lists, color code receipts, and file accordingly. I LOVE how organized your holiday center looks!

  174. November 15, 2012 / 2:14 pm

    One way I organize during this season is by list! I always go through my kids things to make room for the new!

  175. November 15, 2012 / 2:18 pm

    One way I stay organized during this season is by making list! I also go through my kids toys and clothes to make room for the new.

  176. November 15, 2012 / 2:21 pm

    I use a To Do List for what needs to be done and notepads to jot down ideas for gifts. I love the gift tags and color coordinated paper. My family is trying to simplify this year and these products would definitely help do that.

  177. November 15, 2012 / 2:29 pm

    I keep a notebook with a list for what gift purchased is for who, and then wrap the gifts in certain paper (i.e., my family gets these 3 kinds of paper, husband's family gets these 3 kinds of paper, friends are this one, etc.) and then put them in storage totes so we grab the right one when we travel.

  178. November 15, 2012 / 2:55 pm

  182. November 15, 2012 / 3:14 pm

    I have a Christmas notebook for my many lists, a million totes with specific things in them. Mostly I just try to do everything before December so I can enjoy the family time. πŸ™‚

  183. November 15, 2012 / 3:33 pm

    Love these items! I am not organized during the holidays. More like I'm running around going cra-cra-crazy! Maybe these would help? πŸ™‚

  184. November 15, 2012 / 3:34 pm

    One way I stay organized through the holidays by wrapping and labeling gifts as soon as I get them home.

  185. November 15, 2012 / 3:46 pm

    I keep a list with me at all times to record things that I see in a store or online that would be a good gift and who it is for when it comes time for shopping I keep an envelope with me to keep receipts and lists and everything so that it all stays in one place.

  186. November 15, 2012 / 4:07 pm

    I stay organized by not just going out and shopping for random christmas gifts but pre planning and doing as much online shopping as possible (where the price is right).

  187. November 15, 2012 / 4:18 pm

    I think keeping up with the mail is a great way to avoid adding more clutter to your house, so as I open mail, I recycle, file and hang up cards on my card tree branch

  188. November 15, 2012 / 4:20 pm

    I think that it is essential to keep mail organized and under control as it comes in the door, especially during the holidays. I open mail and toss it to recycling (can at door), file, hang cards on a card tree right in the front hall.

  189. November 15, 2012 / 4:23 pm

    I make lists for everything!! What I made/bought for everyone, mailing information for Christmas cards,charity donations, and so on. Great giveaway. Love the wrapping paper!

  190. November 15, 2012 / 4:26 pm

    Lists and post-its. Spreadsheets for holiday gifts. Being organized is so underrated!

  191. November 15, 2012 / 4:27 pm

    Lists, lists and post-its. Spreadsheets at holiday time. Being organized is so underrated! Martha Stewart products are fantastic.

  192. November 15, 2012 / 5:37 pm

    I keep lists of the people I need to buy for and gift ideas for each person. When I am running errands and I see something I can get it and cross it off my list. It's easier to shop purposefully as I go rather than scramble last minute!

  193. November 15, 2012 / 5:38 pm

    I keep a list of those I need to buy for and gift ideas for each person. When I am out running errands and I see something on my list I get it and cross off my list. It's easier to shop purposefully as I go rather than scramble last minute!

  194. November 15, 2012 / 5:43 pm

    I start by keeping list!!!

  195. November 15, 2012 / 5:44 pm

    I keep lots of lists!

  196. November 15, 2012 / 5:50 pm

    Making shopping lists I'll actually stick to!

  197. November 15, 2012 / 5:58 pm

    I enjoy making the lists as much as crossing them out later on.
    Lists, labels and organizers help me release stress as everything is written down and done ahead of time. I would love to win this giveaway!

  200. November 15, 2012 / 6:48 pm

    I have it on my desk at work and it just makes my old wood desk look clean and organized. For the holidays, I keep everything I need in one bin with organizers that way I can pull everything out at once and put it all away together.

  201. November 15, 2012 / 6:50 pm

    I keep lists and a budget to stay organized!

  202. November 15, 2012 / 7:01 pm

    I keep a small notebook with each name on a page. As I buy a gift I note it down. I also create a pocket on the back cover for coupons.

  203. November 15, 2012 / 7:07 pm

    Definitely have to use handwritten lists! Only way for me to stay organized during the holidays. I love Martha products!!

  204. November 15, 2012 / 7:09 pm

    Have to have handwritten lists! Only way I stay organized for Christmas. Love Martha products! So cute πŸ™‚

  205. November 15, 2012 / 7:45 pm

    So cute, I can't get enough of office and organizing supplies.

  206. November 15, 2012 / 8:21 pm

  213. November 15, 2012 / 11:38 pm

    tons of lists!

  214. November 15, 2012 / 11:55 pm

    I make a list of what I want to buy and then store the gifts in our guest room. I also keep all of our gift bags, tissue paper and gift boxes organized in drawers so I always know what I have on hand!

  215. November 16, 2012 / 12:01 am

    I also make lots of lists…what I've bought and where it's hidden. Also schedule a lot of down time so I'm not overwhelmed.

  219. November 16, 2012 / 3:12 am

    Last year I designed a wrapping storage station on the back of a closet door. I love it and am looking so forward to having everything organized for this Christmas season!

  220. November 16, 2012 / 5:49 am

    Staying organized with lists. For some reason if I write it down, I don't forget it.

    I can't take my chances on winning… got to get to the store and buy these products NOW!

  224. November 16, 2012 / 3:39 pm

    I not only use my every day planner during the holidays, but I also have a top-secret Christmas planner book that I purchased on Etsy which has all the lists, receipts, ideas, traditions and notes that I need. It's also fun to look back at what I did in previous years, it always changes a bit. It's amazing what you think you will remember that you don't. This book is a lifesaver for me to keep on track, my planner has events and activities and normal day to day but my Christmas organizer is much smaller and fits in the zip pouch of my purse. It's cute too, of course, if it's handmade from Etsy.

    I'm so excited about MS holiday line, I didn't know she had a holiday line. In LOVE!

    I have a Christmas planner I purchased on Etsy for all my ideas, notes, receipts, traditions, etc. I also use my regular day to day planner for activities and other events but my Christmas planner is top secret and fits in the pouch of my purse. It's also fun to see what I have done in previous years, you think you remember but it changes every year.

    The Christmas planner saves me! I love the MS Holiday line! In love!

  227. November 16, 2012 / 3:53 pm

    I usually don't stay organized. I try every year and then I end up sending gifts AFTER Christmas. Haha. Thanks for the giveaway! Good luck to everyone and Happy Holidays!


  228. November 16, 2012 / 4:01 pm

    I love Martha Stewart!

  229. November 16, 2012 / 4:18 pm

    I try to keep it simple with gift wrapping, one pattern paper, one color curling ribbon and one matching tag.

  230. November 16, 2012 / 5:24 pm

    I'm staying organized with my awesome binder of planning. I created it last month and it is really coming in handy to know what's going on, what food to make, when to get decorations ready, and Christmas lists and shopping lists.

  231. November 16, 2012 / 6:40 pm

    I keep lists of what I am buying or making for each person. Also I keep a list of family activities that our family loves to participate in. Can't wait for Santa!! I love Martha and I just purchased a new planner there last week.

  232. November 16, 2012 / 10:28 pm

    I keep myself organized during the holiday season my using lists.

  233. November 16, 2012 / 10:38 pm

    Thanks for the giveaway!!

  234. November 16, 2012 / 11:11 pm

    I scrapbook so I have a shelf with my Christmas goodies inside, and a drawer with my stamps and other embellishments.

  235. November 17, 2012 / 12:14 am

    I stay organized by making lists.

  236. November 17, 2012 / 6:45 am

    I stay organized with a ton of lists! My blog is actually called La Vida LISTA because of my love of a good list to stay on track with everything- ha ha!

  237. November 17, 2012 / 7:10 am

    Hi Megan. I love the colors and it would be so nice to have everything organized at my finger tips. I look for the best papers and tags after Christmas and put them up for the next year. I'm good about keeping everything together so it's easy to find when I need it.

    Thanks for the great giveaway. I'm crossing my fingers on this one.
    Hugs… Tracy@CottonPickinCute

  238. November 17, 2012 / 12:44 pm

    I set up a gift wrapping station to keep all my supplies handy so its quick and easy to wrap up a gift. I like to shop after Christmas sales to replenish my supply so I always have pretty tags, ribbons etc. to wrap with.

  239. November 17, 2012 / 2:47 pm

    I should be more organized, but I keep each person's gifts in separate bags so I know which child is needing more and who I am missing gifts for.

  240. November 17, 2012 / 5:07 pm

    Lists, lists, and more lists! I love these products and will have to give them a try!

  241. November 17, 2012 / 5:41 pm

    One way I'm planning to stay organized this year is to wrap presents for my husband's side of the family in one wrapping paper and those for my side in another wrapping paper. I think it will be a huge help when loading up the car for our holiday travels.


  242. November 17, 2012 / 6:42 pm

    I use a list to track who, what and where I stored the item. Keeps me on top of it all during the busy Christmas season!

  243. November 17, 2012 / 9:36 pm

    I use the notes app on my iPhone to make lists.

  244. November 17, 2012 / 11:06 pm

    I keep my planner up to date and with me always!

  245. November 17, 2012 / 11:09 pm

    I keep everything xmas related in red/green tubs, easy to find and all in one place

  246. November 17, 2012 / 11:42 pm

    I stay organized by having separate cloth bins for each persons stocking stuffers and gifts, and by wrapping them all in one evening. It's much much easier that way!

  247. November 18, 2012 / 12:37 am

    I keep all my wrapping supplies in one container to keep things organized.

  248. November 18, 2012 / 1:52 am

    LISTS and really writing everrrrything down in my planner!!

  249. November 18, 2012 / 5:33 pm

    I set up a small area in my basement that I have all of the wrapping supplies. As I buy presents (either at stores or in the mail), I take them down to the basement and wrap them immediately. Sometimes I still have my coat on from coming home from shopping! If I wrap them a few at a time like that, it isn't overwhelming and only takes a couple of minutes. If it's something I've ordered online, it generally gets wrapped in the box it came in, so it's easy in that respect too. I'm all about keeping things as stress free as possible!

  250. November 18, 2012 / 9:24 pm

    My new "hidden" gift board on Pinterest is helping me better organizing my gift giving!

  251. November 19, 2012 / 3:48 am

    Keeping an envelope for each little to keep all the receipts form Christmas organized

  252. November 19, 2012 / 4:19 am

    Check lists help me stay organized during the holidays.

  253. November 20, 2012 / 3:45 am

    I stay organized during the holidays by organizing coupons and receipts I bought for gifts in one of those small accordion files.

  254. November 20, 2012 / 6:28 am

    Woo hoo! Martha Stewart giveaway! I am always in the aisle at Staples drooling over all the things I want.

  255. November 20, 2012 / 6:30 am

    I messed up on my last entry : > I am a list maker. Keeping one list is the challenge.

  256. November 20, 2012 / 3:02 pm

    I keep a bin in my closet for each of my kids' gifts and add wrapping paper, scissors, and tape to each one! It helps me keep track of everything!

  257. November 20, 2012 / 7:43 pm

    gift tags! thanks!

  258. November 20, 2012 / 7:43 pm

    tweeted. thanks!

  259. November 21, 2012 / 5:06 am

    Lists! Including all gift recipients and budget. That's my sanity saver.

  260. November 22, 2012 / 7:44 am

    I keep a small note book that I carry in my purse and jot down gift idea's for each family member. I keep organized by checking off each gift that I purchased and a little note on where I hide them.

  261. November 22, 2012 / 10:16 pm

    Oh Martha How I Love Thee – She is the queen of style and organization. How do I stay organized? I have a spreadsheet on my cell phone that lists each person who I need to buy for, how much I am going to spend on that person, and the name of the item with the store listed (if I already know what they want). Then once the item has been picked up, it's highlighted in a different color that way I know it's been taken care of.


  262. November 24, 2012 / 5:02 am

    I use lots of plastic totes to keep everything sorted!

    chambanachik at gmail dot com

  263. November 24, 2012 / 5:04 am

  264. November 24, 2012 / 8:00 pm

    I stay organized by making lists and using my calendar to keep track of obligations.

  265. November 25, 2012 / 10:28 am

    I use google calendar and documents to keep track of our holiday schedule and tasks. For physical bookkeeping these martha stewart products look awesome, I love the hanging folders, they have nice colors for the wall and gives me extra space. Thanks for the review and giveaway.

  266. November 26, 2012 / 1:27 pm

    So excited about this give away – I love the Martha Stewart line at Office supply stores!!! I use them for homemade gifts and cardsa all the time!

  267. November 26, 2012 / 6:46 pm

    What a great giveaway! I love all of the Martha Stewart for Avery products! One way that I stay organized during the holidays is by making lists for EVERYTHING (gifts, meals, packing lists, etc).

  268. November 27, 2012 / 7:55 pm

    Lists and my planner save my life during the holidays!!

  269. November 27, 2012 / 10:56 pm

    I stay organized by making to do lists and then delegating. It keeps me from trying to do everything by myself. Plus I always have a pad of paper near by. projectgadabout at gmail dot com

  270. November 29, 2012 / 7:09 pm

    I have to keep my calendar synced between my office one and my phone!

  271. November 30, 2012 / 2:34 am

  272. November 30, 2012 / 2:35 am

  273. November 30, 2012 / 2:49 am

    I stay organized by keeping Christmas lists in my phone!! Love your cute gift wrapping!! =]

  274. November 30, 2012 / 3:13 am

    Ha! Your question assumes that I was ever organized to begin with! Really, though, lists and planning ahead keep me sane. I'm so proud of myself that I've got everything purchased AND wrapped already!

  275. November 30, 2012 / 3:46 am

    To stay organized I have all of my holiday gifts in one place with a list of bought items!

  276. November 30, 2012 / 3:51 am

    I make tons of lists. I keep of list of all the gifts I buy and how much I spend so I don't overspend. It's very easy to do when you don't stay organized.

  277. November 30, 2012 / 4:07 am

    Love it…:)

  278. November 30, 2012 / 4:28 am

    Love this product line. It would look great in my new space I just reclaimed from the boys!

  279. November 30, 2012 / 4:41 am

    I would love to win – everything needs organizing around here!

  280. November 30, 2012 / 5:12 am

    Staying organized is the only way I can manage my school, work and personal lives.

  281. November 30, 2012 / 5:13 am

    Having a planner and note paper is the best way for me to stay organized. Otherwise my schedule would be a mess and I would forget too many things.

  282. November 30, 2012 / 11:17 am

    I keep a gift idea list on my phone all year long. That way whenever I'm spending time with friends and family and I get an idea for a gift for them I can easily add it to the list before I forget. Then, come shopping season I can refer to the list before I start holiday shopping!

  283. November 30, 2012 / 12:43 pm

    As it's my first Christmas with my little guy, I knew I didn't want to be stressed out looking for gifts at the last minute, so a couple of months ago, I started a list on my iPhone that I would add gift ideas to whenever I thought of them. It has definitely made me feel more organized!

  284. November 30, 2012 / 1:41 pm

    I have 1 calendar- on it I keep activities & gift buying ideas.

  285. November 30, 2012 / 2:17 pm

    I keep track of everything in a lined journal.
    Martha and Staples are two of favorite things.

  286. November 30, 2012 / 2:38 pm

    Lists and file folders help keep me organized!

  287. November 30, 2012 / 2:41 pm

    I honestly need help staying more organized during the holidays. Cute paper and organization items from Staples could help me stay motivated to stay organized with lists and reminders.

  288. November 30, 2012 / 3:21 pm

    I have used a gift list on my computer for the last 4 years. It has been awesome. I am done with my shopping now and enjoying the holidays! I also include what I've given as ideas to the family members, so I don't have a repeat.
    Thanks for the great giveaway!

  289. November 30, 2012 / 3:57 pm

    I keep a list of gifts for each person. I've only checked one of those off so far!

  290. November 30, 2012 / 5:00 pm

    I keep all my gift wrapping supplies in one closet, pretty well organized. All my gift bags hang on a hanger, with another one for wine bags. All my ribbons are on a pants hanger and all my tags are in a box with pens. It makes wrapping so much easier!!

  291. November 30, 2012 / 5:31 pm

    I have a spreadsheet that I use to track gift ideas, purchased gifts, and the amount spent.

  292. November 30, 2012 / 6:14 pm

    I use a notebook that i keep in my purse for ideas and wish lists. For shopping lists specific to a store, I use the Reminders app on my iPhone.

  293. November 30, 2012 / 7:44 pm

    I love to be organized. My favorite way to do so is to make a list every night and stick to it the next day. During the Holidays, I keep a running list of people I have to buy for and take three days out of the week to shop. It has always worked for me. This is such a great giveaway!

  294. November 30, 2012 / 9:09 pm

    I get my shopping done early so I am not running around frantic at the last possible minute!

  295. November 30, 2012 / 9:10 pm

    I keep a "Christmas Command Central" updated and running the in kitchen complete with a chalkboard, gift lists, store coupons, and wrapping supplies!

  296. November 30, 2012 / 9:11 pm

  300. November 30, 2012 / 11:57 pm

    I love this line! I love using Google Docs to keep my holiday spreadsheets organized – I like to have a paper planner on hand too, but I be sure to keep my electronic copies updated so I can easily reference back to any past gifts.

  301. December 1, 2012 / 12:48 am

    I keep organized by shopping as early as possible and wrapping as I buy the gifts.

  304. December 1, 2012 / 3:40 am

    I use the app "Santas Little Helper" on my iPhone.

  305. December 1, 2012 / 4:02 am

    I love MS staples line! I love to eep post it's close by!

  306. December 1, 2012 / 4:10 am

    I am not usually organized during the holidays, and as a result, I don't really usually enjoy them. I decided that THIS year something had to change. I focused on sending out Christmas cards…something I don't usually get to! I decided to make a Numbers Spreadsheet for the addresses on my mac so I could print labels. Avery has a website that walks you through making the labels. Once I figured it out, easy peasy! I am excited about the holidays already!

  308. December 1, 2012 / 5:10 am

    Her line has such great organizational help! I'd definitely get the chalkboard labels

  309. December 1, 2012 / 5:38 am

    I use Martha Stewarts, "ELASTINOTE" around my christmas light strings and extension cords.

    I love Martha! Her products at Staples are super cute!

  312. December 1, 2012 / 3:40 pm

    I use a great app on my phone called Clear to create and organize all my holiday to-do lists. My lists are always close by and it's easy to add new things and check off the things I've completed!

  314. December 1, 2012 / 6:55 pm

    Get a lot of my shopping done online on Black Friday! I also stock up during the day after Christmas sales for wrapping paper. Last year I got all of my wrapping supplies for this year at Target for 90% off.

  315. December 2, 2012 / 2:54 am

    I recently started my own craft,quilt,sewing,Jewellery,refinishing,painting decor business called The Final Touch By Nicole.
    I got a 6 and a 9 shelf unit in expressio by
    Martha Stewart with Teal, lilac, and black fabric drawers with label pocket they are great durable
    And hold a lot, my jewellery supplies and tools can really use a better system than the pladtic boxes with partitions, i unfortunatly have no
    Holiday plans as i now live alone. I love Christmas though and this would be a great gift.

  316. December 2, 2012 / 2:55 am

    I am old school the most modern update is a
    Eight and a Nine shelf Martha Stewart drawer
    Unit with label pocket. I love the tea, lilac, and
    Black fabric drawers. I would love a system other than trays with partitions, round towers
    In boxes, to organize my massive Jewellery making supplies and tools it would be a great
    gift to myself I usually ignore the holidays and work since I live alone.

  317. December 2, 2012 / 3:46 am

    Lists on my favorite notepad work well!

  318. December 2, 2012 / 4:13 pm

    Christmas excel doc containing: wishlists, decorating to-dos, Christmas card lists, budgets and more. I also rely on a physical planner to keep track of all my appointments and event. Couldn't survive Christmas without them.

  319. December 2, 2012 / 7:50 pm

    I actually just bought the new Martha Stewart daytimer in my favorite color – turquoise! No better way to stay organized than by writing things down. That & using my new secret Pinterest board to pin gift ideas. Happy Holidays! xo

    One way I stay organized during the holidays is my card list. Every year after the holidays, I make a list of all the people who sent me cards for that year. That list becomes my card list for the next year! VERY easy way to keep track of who to send cards to every year!
