These are a few of my favorite things, on sale.
It goes without saying that every once in a while I will feature awesome products from Organize.com. Because I love the brand I work for and we all love anything that makes our homes, big and small, more liveable. If you read Real Simple Magazine and shop at Target, we’re right up your alley.
Just a few days ago we decided to do a little spring cleaning of our 44,000 sq. foot warehouse in Southern CA. Why? For a couple reasons. Mainly, these items aren’t necessarily our niche (yet…and I’ll fill you in on new/fun/exciting developments when I’m allowed to spill the beans) and if they’re not selling, there’s really no reason to let them take up space in the warehouse when we can make room for new products.
We as buyers have a tough job, it’s easy to stick to our basics but it’s fun to take risks and see the reaction of our shoppers, kind of like gambling but with someone elses money (always more fun - except when you lose someone elses money, not so much fun). We’ll go to trade shows and fall in love with an item that you’d never think you’d find on a site called Organize.com - like that silly little sock monkey you all saw for the holidays. What does that have to do with organizing? Absolutely nothing. Yet I think we sold over 1,000 units last season. Hollerrr! I laugh at this all the time. So then we’ll go to another show and fall in love with something completely random and ask ourselves, “sock monkey effect?” You win some, you lose some…sometimes the juice isn’t worth the squeeze. So now, we put these items on sale. Jackpot for bargain shoppers! So here are items that I either already own or plan to stock up on since these are fab buys that I’m sure you’ve seen in boutiques around SF and beyond at regular price.
Susy Jack Work Life Magnets: Original $9.99 Now $5.00
Currently on my fridge. File Under: Adorable Fridge Decor. Send a p.s. I love you note or call attn to the I owe you: whatever sweet thing you had that I wanted at 2am.
Minimergency Survival Kit: Original $11.39 Now $5.70
I’m a sucker for impulse buys, so much that this impatient girl LOVES to stand in line at Sephora so I can go through all the bins of shiny, good smelling things to tack onto my total. This is one of those and so well worth it! I think they actually sell this at Sephora, but here it is at half off. The Minimergency Survival kits comes with everything a girl could ever need in sticky situations, and it’s hard to believe that everything you see below fits into the palm of your hand… it’s pretty impressive really.
Emergency Box of Cards by Bob’s Your Uncle: Original $12.49 Now $6.29
Fun, colorful cards to have on hand for any occasion. These have saved my ass on a number of occasions because I can’t seem to remember to write important dates down. Way to go Al. At least I’m prepared to forget.
Lollia Breathe Hand Butter: Original $24.99 Now $12.59 (!!!!)
Yumyumyummmmm. Lollia bath and body products are unbelievable! This smells like a meadow of pink peonies and newborn babies. I’m sure you’ve seen these products in boutiques from the west coast to NYC and beyond, here’s a chance to get the same luxury fragrance at half the price. All of the Lollia line is on sale at Organize.com, because yes, this was one of those buys that they let me have despite it having nothing to do with organizing. What can I say? I LOVE this line and I wanted a discount (hellooo, awesome perk of a buyer!). Oh well, learned my lesson until I can someday own the boutique of my dreams (soonish). And guess what? Our entire Lollia Boutique is on sale. P.S. you’re going to have to fight me for these.
Scroll Mailing Label Tape: Original $20.99 Now $10.50
So cute to adorn a package. When we saw this line at the gift show in LA, we had to have it. Bummed it didn’t sell well for us, but I’m stocking up. I send packages all the time and these sticky labels just add a little touch of something DIY since I’m really not that creative and I wish I were. This is a sweet cheat.
Susy Jack Ringlet Jotter: Original $7.99 Now $4.00
I LOVE PAPER. All paper products, notepads, cards, list pads - you name it. I have notepads all over this house. I make lists for everything because my memory sucks. This little jotter is in my purse, always. When I realize that my chapstick is at pinky finger scraping levels of low, I write it down. Awesome chapstick at Walgreens. Or when I have my next big idea that I’m sure will make me millions until I GTS to find there’s already an app for that, the endless ideas all go down in this jotter when I’m on the go.
Which leads me to my last great deal…(more paper)
Martha Stewart Fern Thank You Cards: Original $9.50 Now $4.75
What ever happened to hand written thank yous?? I think anything hand written is truly more personal and I’m always touched to receive anything that has more thought put into it than clicking a send button. I’m a lucky girl. And I have a lot to be thankful for. These cards are just so sweet and simple to write a personal thank you to someone who deserves one.
p.s. hand written notes are not overrated, keep the pens alive!
Welp, those are my top picks from our sale. I could add so much more but I think this post is long enough as it is. But I’m telling you, we have over 600 products that are up to 85% off. You can find some great buys while they last at the one and only, Organize.com. Happy hunting!
