Sometimes a product comes along that makes you think, “why did it take us so long to come up with this?”. The difficulty in refolding maps has long been the source of frustration. Now FINALLY someone has come up with a solution. Forget refolding. Just crumple. Or fold it any way you want. Hell, make it into a hat if you want. Plus there’s no worry of tearing–it’s made from Tyvek, a nearly indestructible fabric. Crumpled City Maps even come in a gift box with a draw-string pouch for storing the map after each use. Map Size: 34″ W x 23″ H

Earlier this month, with the advent of fall I embarked on the Great Lunch Challenge of 2011 in which I am packing own lunch every week day – both to be healthier and to save money. With this commitment came the problem of figuring out how to transport my lunch. Since I often bring leftovers I need something that can go in the microwave and most conventional plastic isn’t supposed to, and given all the recent brouhaha over its toxicity I wanted something fully BPA-free. Also, isn’t it the worst to actually bring a lunch and then realize you forgot a fork?
Enter the Bento Box! This fantastic container can go in both the microwave and dishwasher, is BPA-free, and has a handy matching fork that attaches to the outside. Also, there’s a removable divider in case you want to separate dishes and a sauce holder (perfect for when I had a salad for lunch on Wednesday). Does it get any better than this?
I wish I could take credit for this slogan but I have to give credit to the oh-so-witty folks at Knock Knock. These Cubicle Notes are so funny!! They make a great gift, but you’ll want some for your own desk, too. We have three styles, and each pack comes with two different sticky note pads with clever multiple choice messages. Check them all out!

Our brilliant Proud Parent Pouches are now in two new styles! We love the Preschool, Kindergarten, and 1st Grade versions, but these are so much more versatile. They’re great for any age child, or even adults! With the sturdy grommet you can hang the pouch on a wall to show off your child’s achievements, or store it flat in a box. I’ve been in a major organization and downsizing mood lately, and I think these are necessary for my future happiness. I have tons of old papers that need to be organized. These are perfect–I’ll pop the grommet over a hanger and stash it in the back of my closet. This way it’s taking up virtually no space, and can be easily accessed to add more mementos. Oh, the joy of a clean closet!!!
