Fridge Coasters are beautifully designed, super absorbent "liners" that fit inside every refrigerator no matter the manufacturer or refrigerator model you own. All coasters are designed with perforation lines to ensure a snug fit.

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 and incredible freebie organizing printables here:
