I love hooks A while back, I did a post about saving time in the morning, one of the comments mentioned using a hook on the back of her door... She uses it as a valet hook (the name and... Continue reading

So, they say that an organized workspace is a more efficient workspace. Being a designer, I used to kind of revel in my chaos. Now, however, working mostly at a desk AND at Rubbermaid made me reevaluate the error of... Continue reading

Working here at Rubbermaid, lots of people ask me what my favorite organization product is. My answers always vary slightly, depending on which product I'm currently using or enjoying. Today? I am TOTALLY in love with our mesh drawer organizers!... Continue reading

No worries! You can start a recycling program ANY DAY of the year, sir. Get on it and lead the charge at your workplace. :)

Hi Steven, love that idea! I might give that one a try.. especially with spring here, I'm always all up in my vegetable garden and super COLD water that stays cold sounds like a must. Thanks for the tip!

Darryl, I'm so sorry! That's actually happened to me before, but it was in my purse.The bottles pictured in this post are an older design... we've recently released a NEW water bottle design that I've found are better for tossing in a gym bag. Sorry for your wet gym clothes :) Hope you try the new ones and they don't let you down!

Hi Drew, Thanks for the comment! I can definitely appreciate your concern. We believe in offering consumers choices in all the products we make, and we have a number of our water bottles that are BPA free (the chemical that most are concerned about when it comes to plastics). You can see images and learn more about the topic on this page of our site - http://www.rubbermaid.com/Pages/LearnAboutBPA.aspx So check them out sometime (glad you have some Rubbermaid product that you are enjoying, beyond water bottles :).

Number 4 is keeping me down too, Megan! I always thought feng shui was a little kookie, but after reading your post, it makes a lot of sense. I love the tie to organizing too. I'm going to go plant some vegetable seeds that have been sitting on my counter all week. One less lurking item my brain is trying to suppress (prob about 100 to go :). Good post!

Queen of Snooze, I pay homage to you :). I love my snooze button too! But you're right, if you can just do these few small things the night before (it really doesn't take more than 10 or 15 minutes), you can set yourself up for success for the next day! Thanks again for the kickass pic, Caty!

Yeah for egg sandwiches (and organization)! That's a great idea about pre-prepping your breakfast. If you don't want a fabulous smoothie, a quick omelet can help you start your day. Thanks for the comments, Ashley!

Chris, you're so right! Being organized like this, really does affect your whole day and outlook! Great call on the hooks... I might do that too! (watch for a post if I do, I'll give you big ups!)

I agree, Alexa, waking up to the smell of coffee in the morning is so amazing! Its like some magic coffee fairy flew in and brewed me a pot. When I can do that little bit of preplan the night before, always starts my day off right.

Love the tip, Amy! (My husband is the SAME way :)

Hahaha! I used to do that too! Its like, in the morning my sleepy fashion sense seems a bit off. Some days at work, around 10, I'd see my outfit choice in the mirror and think "What was I thinking??" Get an organized closet, and a good nighttime routine.. you will kick that crazy right outta there, Gina!

No problem, Tim. I, too, just invested ina programmable coffeemaker... I love it!

I love the toothpaste tip! It might seem small, but seconds DO count. The more organized you are.. the more you can hit that snooze button :)

GREAT idea! (I currently have a bit of that pile you're referring to :). Its my over the weekend, or when I have some time, I'll hang all this up pile. Hmm... I'm def going to start doing that, Susy. Thanks!

I hear you about changing your mind on your outfit :).. but if I have something to START with that seems to look fabulous the night before, I def save time in the morning. And lunch is such a big one... whenever I get ahead of it the night before, my morning is way smoother!
