Carolina Pad Hot Chocolate Collection
I have admired Carolina Pad's awesome office supply collections for some time. I LOVE to organize things. The problem is, it often takes me awhile to figure out an organization plan that works for various things in the life. Carolina Pad products are known for being well-made yet fashionable. These products have been seen on 90210, Glee, and Desperate Housewives (you can't get much trendier than that)!
When I was given the opportunity to review the Hot Chocolate collection, I decided to see how these products would work for all my readers who are bakers and wannabe bakers. Let me tell you, if you think a bit outside the box, these products work great to help you keep your kitchen organized. Whether you bake for fun or for profit, you can find a way to use these products to simplify your kitchen!
Here are the products I received:
13 pocket folder
5 decorative tab dividers
26 pocket folder
8 pocket folder
These products are very well made. Every single item was made sturdy and I don't think I will see wear and tear on these things for a very long time. The laminated coating make them perfect for the kitchen (trust me, icing ruins paper products that are not coated). The color blends are also wonderful and very pleasing to the eye.
Here are some ways that I used these fantastic products to help organize my baking:
I used the 8 pocket folder to help keep together upcoming cakes I will be making. I can place a picture, the recipes, and information all in one pocket.
I used the tab dividers to help better organize my "portfolio". Using the tabs, I can separate sheet cakes from tiered, fondant from buttercream, etc. for easy organization!
I really like using recipe pages instead of cards when I bake, so the 13 pocket folder is perfect for keeping these neatly organized.
Here are some thoughts for the professional baker:
Use the file folder to keep client files.
Use the 26 pocket folder (which is nicely divided into 2 sections) for receipt organization. The first half can organize your profits, while the last half can help you keep track of costs. You will be grateful for this come tax time!
Use a binder clip to keep a small stack of business cards in your purse.
Use the 13 pocket folder for forms such as order forms, blank receipts, advertising fliers, etc.
