The Power of Organization

You’ve probably noticed that the more organized you are, the more smoothly your life goes. You don’t waste time in the morning searching for socks and car keys. You don’t forget to pack your toothbrush before you zip up your carry-on, and you show up on time.

But few of us, if any, started our lives organized.

Most of us can relate to my five-year-old daughter—the one who dumps her toys onto her bedroom floor before she plays with them. By noon, her bedroom carpet is covered with tiny dolls, plastic ponies, and fake jewelry. It’s a minefield. Any wrong step could send a parent to the hospital for emergency foot surgery—a tiera-ectomy. Of course, this is the same child who can never find her toys.

If we’re honest with ourselves, we can all remember our childhood, with parents constantly reminding us to clean our rooms and pick up after ourselves. Our parents had discovered the power of organization and the freedom it gives us to live our lives. With time we learned the same thing—that the right tools in the right place at the right time make all the difference.

That’s why is here. Our goal is to help you keep up with the rhythm of your life. And hopefully, as you model organized behavior, those sweet children can learn to be tidier as well. At least we can hope.

Here are a few tools to help you along the way.

  1. I would like to see something that I can attach into my classic planner for my cell phone. I am quite busy going to three different floors on committes that I am involved in and I need to have my cell phone with me at all times so that I can be reached.

    I have looked at the many items that you carry on-line as well as the Franklin store near my office, but you do not have anything that I can attach for my cell phone. I have a dark green leather classic planner that I have had over 18 years. I have taken very good care of it and would like to continue to use it since everyone knows that it belongs to me.

    Please create something that can be beneficail to me as well as others that may have the same interest as me. Thank you and I hope to see something back as feedback or in the store soon!

    1. Thanks for your thoughts and feedback Cynthia! We take all of it into consideration and I think this is a great idea, I will definitely pass it along!
