?Our goal is to make it easy for small businesses to have success in the

combining Lorie's advice and organizational expertise with the quality
of Staples Brand products, Staples customers will be able to cut their
?clutter calories' in no time.?
Staples and Lorie make it easy to get organized at home or in the
office, and suggest the following advice to get started:
Get a head start on clearing out 2010 clutter while ensuring that
confidential information stays private. Shred junk mail, unwanted
documents and old CDs and DVDs with the Staples®
MailMate M5? shredder.
Organize documents in both files and binders. The Staples®
BETTER? binder features an easy to insert spine label and
D-rings that hold up to 25 percent more paper than standard round-ring
binders. And the non-stick, archival safe material won't lift ink or
toner off printed pages. Line binders up on shelves for an organized,
If you find papers attached with paper clips in your files, remove the
paper clips and staple the stacks instead. Paper clips tend to grab
onto other unintended papers when stored in a file folder. Use the
super powerful Staples®
One-Touch? stapler to make it easy.
One of the best kept secrets in office supplies are box-bottom hanging
folders. They expand to hold a larger capacity of paper if you have
jumbo files. I recommend stocking the Staples
2" letter size box bottom folders for the most typical use.
After organizing files and clutter, give the office a clean look. Many
people do not realize that their desktops are one of the germiest
places they will encounter all day. Sustainable
Earth by Staples? Multi-Purpose Cleaner delivers powerful cleaning
that is safer for the environment and even meets the Green Seal?
environmental standard for household cleaners and is Green Seal?
?I am excited to work with Staples to offer some of my Clutter Diet tips
and Staples Brand product picks,? said Lorie Marrero, founder and
creator of the Clutter Diet. ?Our two brands share a common goal of
providing easy ways to get organized on any budget.?
