Tools for organization. Making my semi-regular trip to the Target at Atlantic Avenue, I discovered Real Simple has collaborated with school-supply and stationer giant Mead to offer an entire series of tools for home organization. The collection was appealing in design and succeeded in inspiring organization. While there is really nothing too new here among the file boxes, calendars, note pads, etc., I especially liked the ideas for notecard wheels and grommeted pads...
Surprisingly, the products were well-priced even though they are clearly in competition with the more expensive Russel & Hazel. They appear to be an in-store only items, as trying to locate them on Target.com proved fruitless. Most items are available on the Real Simple site. —aaron
