internet retailer, makes it easy to get organized in 2013 with expert
tips and an expanded assortment of products.
“A well-organized office helps you find what you need and to work

Shed – purge unwanted files or papers and organize the

Program, which gives customers $2 off the purchase of a new binder for
each binder they bring in to a Staples store to recycle.

shredding unneeded paperwork with sensitive information. For larger
jobs, consider Staples Copy & Print, which offers confidential
shredding at great prices.
