Organize Your Grad

Published Thursday, May 26, 2011 1:48 PM

June's graduation season is right around the corner. Do the grad in your life a favor and equip them with tools to manage life's paperwork, bills and time-management demands. Organization is the gift that keeps on giving.

File in Style: Gift your grad with a filing cabinet or a portable filing tote. Better yet, fill it with files and labels and direct them to past Pendaflex posts for tips on becoming a filing maven.

Time Flies: Watches may be the classic retirement gift but for young grads, time-management tools are the better bet. Consider a PDA or leather day planner. Or gift cards let your grad opt for apps to organize the day.  Finally, past posts on time-management resources  will have your grad up to speed in no time.

Label Maker 101: Long-hand is so 2000. Gift your 2011 grad with a state-of-the-art label maker, perfect from organizing everything from files to dorm room cubbies.  This is one gift with a very long shelf life!

Grad or Nomad? Today's high tech grad bears a striking resemblance to a digital nomad, able to work and recreate untethered from traditional desks and phone cords. Equip your grad just as you would a digital nomad, with a wireless laptop, battery charger and even, gasp!, an old-fashioned pen and paper. Read on for more to make your grad a well-equipped nomad. 

What is the can't-live-without organizing gift for your grad? Share your thoughts here and at the Pendaflex Facebook page.
