Videos On Organizing and Growing Up

At Case•it, we’re always looking for media that tells the story of why getting organized is about more than straightening out your stuff and filling some binders. It’s the story behind those helpful solutions that is the story of our customers and friends.

Organizing is about overcoming your fears. It’s about realizing that everyone struggles with disorganization at some point and always. It’s about gaining confidence, growing up and learning who you are and who you are not. It’s about understanding that we all need help keeping our things in order, all the time.

That said, Human Relations Media has put together some excellent videos on the topic that you can watch with your child for fun and for educational reasons.

The organization is one of the leading K-12 publishers of supplemental educational products in the United States specializing in video-based programs in a variety of subject areas including Health, Drug Education, Career Education, Science, Math and Language Arts. In these videos they have fun with the notion that we are all looking for ways to be better organized and all dreading the terrible possibilities if we don’t get our act together.

So watch and enjoy!

This one on that common fear that somehow we’re going to fail…

This one on the role that self-confidence plays in our effort to better organize…

Organizing with Autism… One Child’s Story

This came from one of our wonderful customers. We just had to share it. It’s so inspiring.

“I just wanted to take a minute to tell you a quick success story. My son, Will, has had some challenges at school. He has been diagnosed as being on the autism spectrum and has had extreme difficulty staying organized. Hoping to get this year off to a better start, we have been working on strategies with his teachers but, with an increase in class changes during the day, he is often not prepared for class, not handing in homework assignments that he has actually completed, etc. all because he was not able to get to his locker between classes and cannot carry the full days books and papers. One afternoon walking through Target, Will spotted a Case•it binder that was his favorite color and asked if we would get it for him. Eager to try anything to help him, we did. In the two weeks since he started using it, we have received TWO emails from his teachers remarking how he is more organized, isn’t missing assignments and has risen his grades as a result. Again, I just wanted to thank you for your excellent product. And with two school age sons and another entering Kindergarten next year, you will most definitely have a repeat customer in us.”

Here’s ways to use The Universal and another customer favorite. Share some of your own ideas for filling your binders.

 

The Laptop Makes Way for The Universal Binder

LT-007 Interior Clothing LT-007 Interior Supplies

Case•it has discovered something interesting since it first put the innovative binder The Laptop on the market last year.

First let me say that the binder is among the first designed to hold and protect your laptop or tablet electronic device. Because laptops and tablets are becoming a normal part of any student’s school day and any professional’s work day, we felt strongly that giving our fans a binder that allowed them to store their electronics along with their papers and supplies was critical. So did it and people responded.

What we found out, however, was that people used the padded pocket on the outside of the zippered binder as a storage space for much more than their laptop or tablet. People began using it hold their spare clothing for gym or after school. They protected their snacks and lunches in the padded pocket. They filled the exterior pocket with calculators and small pads and pencil and other supplies. What we realized was that how you fill your binder is very much a matter of taste and creativity. Let your imagination run wild and make your binder your personal organizer, ready to do exactly what you need it to do. That’s what Case•it is all about afterall, personalization, excellence, organization.

The fact is that The Laptop binder is much more than a Laptop holder. It’s capable of so much more storage and it does it with unique style. That’s why we decided to rename it  “The Universal.”

Beginning in March, The binder once known as the Laptop will be from here on out called The Universal — because that is what it is. It is universal in its uses and we hope it is universally loved by anyone who understands the value of binders for organizing and wants one that can handle their computer devices as easily as it stores a bagged lunch.

Here’s some of what the Laptop is capable of:

• Exterior Padded Pocket Carries Your Laptop, Tablet, Books, Snacks, Jackets or Anything Else You Might Need

• Exterior Padded Pocket Holds your 13” Laptop or Tablet
• 3-Ring Binder, 2” Capacity to Hold Reams of Paper and Documents
• 2 Inside Pockets to Securely Store your Supplies
• Handle and Shoulder Strap Makes for Easy Carrying
• Ripstop Material’s Square Pattern Traps Punctures to Prevent Tearing
• Patented Angled Zipper Keeps Gusset Out of the Way When Writing

Enjoy it!

Zen and the Art of Organizing Coupons

Hey everyone!

If you’re an avid couponer or someone who occasionally will gather coupons for the groceries and so likes to keep them in order and at the ready, here are some helpful ways to get yourself organized in a world where scrap pieces of paper (aka coupons) rule.

We’ve chosen pieces, wikis and other postings from some of our favorite bloggers and web sites to share with you. Read and review and get better organized — and save. For now we’ll just say that organizing coupons like organizing anything is about three things mostly – and all begin with “S”:

1. Simplifying (don’t save coupons unless you will use them)

2. Sorting (keep your coupons organized by category — food, fruit, household products) 

3. Sectioning Off (make sure your coupons are in the right categories of your binder or organizer for easy retrieval).
