Staples taps de-clutter guru
Office supply giant Staples Inc. said it's teaming up with Lorie Marrero, a certified professional organizer and founder of the celebrated Clutter Diet.
Framingham-based Staples aims to be all things to small businesses and folks with home offices. It doesn't just want to provide this customer base with office products but also with services that can improve business efficiencies.
To that end, Staples has turned to Marrero (right), who has vaunted expertise in the twin sciences of de-cluttering and de-stressing. Plans call for her to offer new weekly tips and product suggestions at www.staples.com/clutterdiet. Marrero's advice comes just in time for "National Organize Your Files Month," a sort of Lent for pack-rats, Staples notes in a press release.
"Our goal is to make it easy for small businesses to have success in the workplace by providing them with top-knotch tools and products," Dave D'Angelo, senior vice president of Staples Brand Group, said in a statement. "By combining Lorie's advice and organizational expertise with the quality of Staples Brand products, Staples customers will be able to cut their 'clutter calories' in no time."
Among the basic building blocks of the Clutter Diet food pyramid: Shred that junk mail. (With a Staples MailMate M5 shredder, natch.) Organize documents in both files and binders. Then bust out the Sustainable Earth by Staples Multi-Purpose Cleaner. ("Many people do not realize that their desktops are one of the germiest places they will encounter all day," the Staples press release helpfully points out.)
