These days, it's not enough to be a print magazine. A magazine must have a Web presence. Some are even getting their own TV shows and branded products.
Time Warner's Real Simple has a Web site, its own TV show on PBS, and now branded products.
I'm a sucker for gimmicks for organizing my desk - see my past articles on the File-It Calendar, bookmark flags, and Pro-Con pads - so I was curious to check out the new line of Real Simple Organizing Products.
I found many of the products overpriced, rather cheesy, and/or more gimmicky than useful. I did, however, like the Dual Notebook, which is two spiral-bound notebooks in one. I use one side for capturing ideas related to my job and the other side for capturing ideas not related to my work (including The Style Page). I also like the Project Box. I use the individual file boxes for storing ideas for different parts of The Style Page.
You may find Real Simple Organizing Products at Target stores.
