Giveaway: $25 Office Max Gift Card (For Avery Products!) (CLOSED)

When you get stressed out, do you clean or organize as a way to maintain control?

According to Avery Dennison, while the economy is creating stress -- sometimes beyond our control -- Americans are looking for ways to gain control of their environment. In a recent survey, nearly 80 percent of respondents who describe themselves as disorganized, want more organization in their lives as a way to take control during the recession.

Jodie Watson, TLC's Real Simple.Real Life organizational expert, is partnering with Avery Dennison to launch the Avery Do-It-Yourself Organization campaign where consumers can get special weekly tips, articles and learn about organization tools, with special information tailored for office administrative assistants, small business owners and general consumers.

Jodie shares her biggest little secrets to success in organization including where to start organizing, how to get focused, and solutions for work and home at www.avery.com/diyorganization.

I was recently given the opportunity to try out some of Avery's newest and most popular products. I was already very familar with Avery's line of labels - I actually have used many of these in my office, so I was especially excited to try out some of their new products! Avery labels are great because they are high quality and the variety in sizing helps to fit anything you'd want a label for! I've never had a problem with Avery labels pulling off, nor have I ever had them rip It's easy to see why Avery labels are used so frequently!

Of the items I reviewed, my favorite items were the: Storage & Tab (a repositionable pocket that turns pages like a divider), the removable label pad (like a sticky note, but it's a label) and the Avery Wizard software (which lets me print my own Holiday labels, tags etc!)

But of all of the Avery items I was able to review, my all time favorite product was the repositionable note tabs. The idea is similar to a post it, but the edge of the note has a tab (similar to one on a divider.) I can see this being perfect for a student, or for writing notes you want to be easily accessible in a file!
