Popping in on this beautiful Saturday to share an organization idea as well as a generous giveaway! You guys know I love talking about organization and sharing a giveaway with you….but this giveaway is a special one. One near and dear to this mommy’s heart.
You may recall a few weeks ago I shared a product with you from the incredible company Samsill. Samsill Corporation is one of the largest independently owned manufacturers of business accessories, laptop cases, media storage, ring binders and sheet protectors. Their mission is to provide innovative office solutions which protect, organize, present and transport information and digital accessories. They are constantly pursuing excellence in people, products and performance. And the company is rooted in a strong set of standards and values.
I love working with this company and love their products. A few weeks ago, they shared their awesome Trio binders with a few Simply Organized readers. The Trio binder is a great way to organize anything, but especially during tax season…
Aren’t these genius?! The Trio is a binder…
an accordion file…
and a hanging file…all in one!…
But binders aren’t only for tax season. They are a great tool to organize anything and everything. Of course, papers! And we all know how paper can overwhelm us. Even those that are totally organized (ahem).
Since April is the month we focus on Autism Awareness, and I have a sweet little boy on the Autism Spectrum, I reached out to Samsill to see if they would be interested in sharing another giveaway with my readers…specifically for those touched by / blessed with a child with special needs. And because they are awesome, they stepped right up to host yet another generous giveaway!
This time, to include their Duo Binders…
Yep! 2 winners will each receive TEN Duo Binders. Yes, I did say 10 binders each!
Their Duo binders are a 2-in-1 organizer; a file folder + a binder in one. They come in a variety of bright, fun colors!…
What better time than now for parents of a special needs child to get that paperwork organized? It’s spring cleaning time, the school year is just starting to wind down (I know, already!), and we light it up blue for Autism Awareness.
One of my most popular organization posts here on the blog is my organized special needs binder. I don’t typically share personal info, but have opened up a bit and shared a few details about my son on the Spectrum. I feel as a parent of a special needs child, it’s important for me to share and get involved. It not only helps others, it helps me find support and info too. Over the years, I’ve received many e-mails from readers that either have questions about his diagnosis because their child too was diagnosed with PDD-NOS…or questions about how I organize / structure certain things around the house to better help me and him. I have and will always accept those e-mails and I answer them! So if you need to reach out, please feel free!
We don’t allow his diagnosis to define who he is…and truly, he doesn’t either. He has consistently exceeded every goal and my favorite is when he proves everyone wrong and shatters opinions…like when someone told me he’d never read. Uh-huh. Ask him anything about baseball and he’ll talk your ears off. How does he know so much about baseball? Because he’s a voracious reader.
For those blessed with a special needs child, you know very well how much paperwork comes in, how much there is to manage and how difficult it is to stay on top of….and keep organized! It’s overwhelming for me and I’m a pro here. As I said, I previously shared my organized special needs binder…
But after a few years, it was time to update using the Duo Binders. All I did was transfer the relevant papers over to my Duo and make certain everything was up to date / filed correctly. No need for the special inserts anymore because I have an accordian file in the binder too!
Since I created my original binder a few years ago, we moved to a new state, have a new therapy schedule and he has an IEP with our new school district. Now everything is organized in one convenient Duo Binder. I also included recent report cards, reports from therapists and specialists, and more. Here’s my full detailed list of categories:
Having all of his paperwork in one spot – and organized – is key to keeping my stress level low on this paper topic. Whenever I need to find something for a teacher, school office or doctor, I know exactly where to find it.
And now you can too!
2 lucky Simply Organized readers are each going to receive 10 Duo Binders to get organized!
We’d love to open this giveaway to those touched by a special needs child or organizations that assist children with special needs. Having a special needs child is costly with therapy expenses, special school costs and so much more. The giveaway is open to everyone, and we won’t turn anyone away, but we’d love to see a worthy family or organization in the special needs community win this wonderful giveaway!
As usual, with all of my giveaways, entry is simple. Enter one way or every way to up your chances. Be sure to share this with family and friends over social media too! We’d love to get the word out to those in need!
Good luck everyone! And be sure to check out the Samsill website to see all of their great products!
