January is GET ORGANIZED Month! (see below). Our last issue celebrated outstanding Design. This issue is focused on the latest trends and forecasts for the organization and storage industry. 
 
Every store you walk into during the holidays you will find something to help you organize your stuff. Long gone is the used box to put stuff in. Let’s face it the products out there are prettier and fun to display. Bins, baskets, drawers...all of a sudden your organization skills are part of your overall design personality. Homeowners want more space but the only way to get it sometimes is investing in a more professional approach to their organization. 
 
I don’t have to tell you that business is good and the outlook remains rosy throughout next year. 
 
Get organized
 
January is GO Month! This month-long campaign by the National Association of Professional Organizers (NAPO) promotes the benefits of working with an organizing or productivity professional and highlights the educational opportunities for individuals looking to build a career in the profession. NAPO professional organizers and productivity specialists across the country host events in their communities to empower individuals, families and businesses to regain control over their surroundings, time and possessions.
 
GO Month 2018 will also promote the benefits of working with a NAPO organizing or productivity professional who is committed to professional development and will highlight the opportunities NAPO offers for those new to the profession and for those seasoned professionals seeking advanced educational opportunities.
 
GO Month is the precursor to one of the home storage and organization industry’s largest events - the 2018 Cabinets & Closets Conference & Expo, to be held March 27-29 in Pasadena, California. Learn more at cabinetsandclosetsexpo.com.
