Organizing Tabs For Your Life

One of the reasons I was thrilled to work with Avery for SocialLuxe Lounge, aside from the fact that they’re the best kind of company out there, is the fact that I’m obsessed with organization.  I can’t get enough of their sticky note tabs.


When I was getting ready to head to New York, I mapped out my plan of attack and note tabbed and organized it all.  See, I’m not so hot with directions.  I thought I was for a long time, but as it turns out?  I only know how to navigate when I have the Wasatch Mountains to guide me north/south.  In Manhattan?  Fugghedaboutit.

I laid out the best plans for all my favorite things to do in New York City.  I Google mapped directions from the hotel, printed them all out, and note tabbed them to within an inch of their lives.

I had all the basics: thrift stores, Ghandi’s Cafe, Pinkberry, H&M.  Do you see an emerging theme?  Food & shoppingHmmmmmm.

These note tabs saved my life.  I have a little stack of them in my desk drawer right now and I have major plans for them.  Organizing Christmas shopping lists, school projects for the kids, extracurricular activities, carpool schedules.

Man, oh man, the places we’ll go.

We live in the country but we’re a little bit rock + roll. Welcome!


  1. Lori :

    I need these for work. I work from home and just keep a notebook at the side of my computer where I write things down as I go. I spend a good hour going back through notes through out the week (that I can’t bill for – boo!), so I think I’ll get rid of my (non-functioning) doggie-ear method and get me some tabs. Wahoo for organization.

    • Allison :

      You really do. They’re a little see-through too, so you can put them on top of your notes and still see what you’re doing underneath.


  2. Emily :

    I’m a big fan of the post-it tabs, especially the page marker ones. I love these! Great idea!

    • Allison :

      Yes! I use those when I read books or magazines and I want to highlight something in particular. Love.

  3. Danielle (ellleinadspir) :

    These excite me more than they should. I think I love organization a bit too much!!

    • Allison :

      Danielle, I’m with you. They totally made me happy.
