There are many schools of thought when it comes to how the organization of a room can make it more productive. There are many that believe that it is necessary for an office to have no distractions, meaning no windows and the person basically working from a cubicle. There are others, that believe all the furniture needs to be facing the East in order to make the person more productive. Whether these types of thoughts are really accurate in actually helping a person or not, is really a matter of personal opinion. However, one way that a person can help themselves is through making sure that the office is arranged to suit their needs. There are several pointers that a person can use in order to help them to get to the point in which their office works better for them.
For those who are arranging their office, they do need to be sure they place their desk in a place that is going to allow them to think. Consider this, when you see most offices, the desk is facing away from the view the person may have. This is because having a few can distract a person from what they need to be doing, everyone daydreams and when looking at an enticing view, the person can daydream even more than usual. Always take into consideration what you like and simply do what you like. You can use these tips, but chances are you are going to be happier with something that is on the same lines of your tastes and desires.

THE RIPPLE EFFECT...
We were already big fans if Genuine Joe, a brand that delivers great valu on office essentials like paper towels and tissues, breakrook supplies and cleaning products. But after trying out this month's feature product, we really have to give it up to Joe for taking a somewhat mundane item and giving it a real twist of innovation. The item? A simple paper cup. The innovation? Ripples. That's right, ripples. Genuine Joe has introduced a line of "ripple hot cups" that make drinking hot beverages safer and more economical.
They've taken a sturdy paper cup and applied an outer layer of ridged paper to it. There are several advantages to this 3-layer ripple design that once notices immediately upon pouring hot coffee or tea into it and picking it up for a sip.
So there you have this month's product in review. Style, comfort andsavings in a cup. Genuine Joe Ripple Hot Cups come in several sizes ranging from 8 to 16 oz. Joe has thrown a rock into a sea of boring paper cups and we're here to say that the ripple effect does the job nicely.

Do you know what summer means? Parties, parties, and more parties. If it’s not a graduation party, it’s a bridal shower or a weekend BBQ. With all these special occasions this summer, you’re bound to throw at least one party. There are so many great things about summer parties, except one thing: the drinks! Here's how it usually how it goes down - you dunk your arm, elbow deep, into a large bucket of ice searching for anything you can grab, as your fingers start to go numb. When you pull your arm out, you see that what you grabbed is not what you want, but there is no way you’re going to plunge back into that ocean of ice! Now your arm is red and purple, dripping with water and ice particles. Gross!
Let’s stop this madness! Never again should anyone have to dunk into an icy abyss for sub-par beverages. Here’s our solution: Infused ice cubes!
The night before the party, brew any Keurig® iced beverage of choice. Pour the beverage into ice cube trays and add fruit….
For the party, bring your Keurig® brewer outside and set up a Beverage Bar, equipped with K-Cup® pods like Snapple® and Celestial Seasonings® along with your infused ice cubes.
Your guests now have the ability to create their own customized beverage!
People will be talking about this Beverage Bar for years to come. Cheers to an even cooler summer!
