Organize-It welcomes holiday shopping season with lowered shipping rates
October 19, 2015
ROCHESTER HILLS, MI – The storage and organization retailer, Organize-It, has recently lowered their U.S. ground shipping rates again by approximately ten percent. Additional concessions from small parcel carriers allowed the home goods supplier to make this cut and pass along savings to customers. This change comes in addition an earlier seven percent drop in shipping costs that Organize-It made in June of this year.
Organize-It knows that most customers, “prefer lower shipping [costs] as opposed to expedited [shipping],” and hopes that customers will take advantage of the savings, said Warehouse Manager Todd Parent.
Results from the Pitney Bowes’ 2015 Holiday Shipping Survey show that Organize-It customers are not alone. Eighty-eight percent of online shoppers value price over speed in regard to shipping. With the holiday shopping season fast approaching, Organize-It recognizes customer’s ever important need to save money.
The same survey found that shoppers are planning to spread out their purchases across the entire season. Parent said that the holiday influx typically picks up around the tail end of October. With this in mind, Organize-It is glad to implement this reduction now to best accommodate customers this coming holiday season.

ROCHESTER HILLS, MI – The storage and organization retailer, Organize-It, has recently been recognized as a finalist in the 2015 Best of MichBusiness.

Sales Manager Mike Korenchuk, whose exemplary work was the basis for the nomination, says he is grateful for the excellent team he works with every day.

Autumn 101: Composting leaves
October 1, 2015
Hello, October! I’ve been waiting for you!
While fall officially begins in September, it never feels like it’s really here until October bears its head. Welcome spiced drinks, warm sweaters and crunchy leaves.
That last one though. What do you do with all those leaves? You can rake them up, bag them and leave ’em by the curb for garbage day. But what good does that do. Come spring, you’ll be purchasing bags of unnatural fertilizers to spruce up your gardens. I say, skip the chemicals and use the natural nutrients from composted leaves to improve the natural water table as well as improve soil quality and root growth.
Now, you can go the easy way. Rake leaves into a pile in your backyard, cover them with a tarp and let them sit. Maybe make a small enclosed area with chicken wire. But if you’re in an area that gets lots of snow like I am, you want to create the perfect environment for proper composting.
Finding the right composter
Bins are great for those looking for a low maintenance project.
Made from 100 percent recycled plastic, this Compost Container is an easy route for beginners. This compost bin holds up to 58 gallons, perfect for yard waste. Simply add your leaves and then pile in any kitchen waste you may have. Think banana and vegetable peels, coffee grounds and the like. This manageable bin sits anywhere you like in the backyard, just try to keep it in a sunny spot during the winter. And maybe put some hay bales around it to keep it cookin’.
Looking for a little more? Tumbling compost bins are a step up.
Made in the U.S.A., this Tumbling Composter is much faster than the normal stationary style. This 6.5 cubic feet bin composts material in just three to four weeks. This resin barrel sits on a strong steel frame. The unit is designed to spin easily so compost can be mixed without opening the barrel.
Of course, you can always go the DIY route. One of our sister blogs recently tackled how to make a compost bin out of a plastic storage tote. It’s a great, easy project for those not sure if they’re ready for the commitment.
- Tip: New projects are always easier to tackle when you prepare properly. Organizing yard tools and other tools needed to compost will make it so much easier to remain attentive to this new undertaking. A simple organizer is a great addition to garages and tool sheds alike.
