Back to the Basics: Using Naked Binders to Get Organized

naked binderLike many of you, I have a deep appreciation for office supplies. As in I’d rather visit OfficeMax than Kay Jewelers.

A couple weeks ago, I introduced you to Naked Binder, a Life Your Way sponsor, and their line of environmentally friendly binders. They also sent me a set to test for myself, and I really, really like the look and feel of these binders. They’re made from 97% post consumer waste and are completely recyclable, which is pretty awesome, but they’ve also been independently tested to withstand more than 250,000 flexes. That’s a lot of use!

In addition, the project binders come with your choice of colorful spine wraps. I think all office supply addicts agree that color-coding makes everything better, and these snazzy spine wraps are a great way to organize your binders by color.

I set out to think of all of the ways you can use binders around your home, but I have a feeling this list is still incomplete, so I’d love to hear what other ways you use binders!
