Chris & Tracey once heard someone say that the idea of organizing photographs was about as enticing as swallowing cod liver oil! That comment inspired them to do everything they could to make the process easier and more enjoyable. That, and the fact {by their own admission} that they felt completely out of control with their own piles of photographs!

After that, Chris & Tracey went on a frantic search for solutions and came up empty handed, they set out to create their own. They knew they needed something that was super easy to use and covered all the bases at once. {Translation: it had to be safe for their photographs so they'd be organizing and preserving at the same time AND it had to allow them to record their memories right then and there because they knew they'd never "get back to it".} The result? Photo Pockets archival photo-journaling envelopes.

Of course, as soon as they solved that dilemma, another presented itself. They realized that sometimes the best tools aren't enough. Sometimes you need inspiration, support and step-by-step guidelines. So they created the "Save Your Photos and Your Sanity" e-book, which has already helped more than 3,000 people with its humorous, lighthearted approach.

Be sure to connect with Chris & Tracey:
You CAN organize, preserve and enjoy your photo collection -- without losing your mind! Visit

Are you ready to get started? Chris & Tracey are currently offering Photo Pockets and "Save Your Photos & Your Sanity" together in a greatly discounted package. By ordering the Jump Start Plus kit, you’ll have everything you need at your fingertips AND you’ll save over 35%! Visit to order.

My pal Holly Bohn is the Founder and Creative Director of See Jane Work.

Yes we are busy, but we can still have fun. And we can still express our individuality. That is why See Jane Work was born. They know you don't have time to search every website that comes up on Google looking for a notebook that says a little more about you than, "I got a coupon in the mail from Office Mart." You want something that says, "I am unique. I have style. I will not wear sweatpants to a meeting with a client ever again, no matter how late I am running."

They feel inspiration comes a little easier to those writing their thoughts in a pink leather journal rather than on the back of an envelope.

See Jane Work appreciates your business, so much so that they have created Jane's Rewards; a way for you to earn points doing what you love... shopping at

See Jane Work has a new line available exclusively at Office Depot!

Buttoned Up, Inc. was founded in 2004 by four women, three sisters and a best friend...

They realized the necessity for a tool like Life.doc after experiencing significant life changes − from moving across the country to setting up house after 9/11 to getting divorced after 38 years of marriage to having kids and grand-kids. Each of them felt the need to get their lives organized but were unable to find products that could help them control their chaos. They wanted to be liberated from the rigid organizational systems that they bought annually and stopped using after just a few weeks.

After several years of trial, error, effort and research, they started Buttoned Up whose mission is to give women the tools they need to live an organized life not a life of organization.

They currently offer all sorts of great document kits to keep you organized in every aspect of your life!

{Life.doc, Moving.kit, File.starter, Medical.doc}

You can also find all sorts of organizing tips and topics they share on their blog!

Their 2012 Weekly Agenda is here!

The 2012 Weekly.agenda planner is specifically designed to prevent the 3 productivity-killing mistakes most people make: failure to prioritize, missing opportunities to batch similar tasks, and neglecting to plan ahead.
