Deflecto Room Refresh - a peek into my #Tryazon Party and how I organized with the Stackable Cubes

Complimentary chair mats and organizer cubes were provided to me through Tryazon so that I could share them with friends and through my blog.

One of the things that often brings enjoyment are the unexpected things in life. They don't have to be big or monumental to make a difference, sometimes just the smallest unexpected experience can provide fun and humor to your day. A few weeks ago, I received a text from FedEx letting me know that a shipment was on its way. I couldn't for the life of me figure out what I was expecting, and from a small town in Ohio nonetheless. My husband were sitting down, relaxing, catching up on some episodes of Aerial (enjoyable and education series if you haven't watched it) when the text came in. We sat there and racked our brains. We checked the websites for typical retailers and shipment e-mails for special items that we had ordered recently. Nothing matched. The small town happens to be near some of our friends, so he reached out to say, we are getting a package from that city, any chance they know what is coming? Of course, they didn't but their curiosity was piqued. Let us know when you get it, they asked. Of course, it didn't arrive the day it was supposed to but when it did - we shared the unboxing with them. We had a good laugh about it and they were the first to see the products that I had received as part of my Deflecto Room Refresh Tryazon Party.

Turns out that first shipment was only a partial shipment and there was a delay with the other part. That didn't stop me from partying but it did lead to me have to break the party up into a couple of different 'parties' instead of what I had planned, since the product wasn't all here in time.

I took advantage of a planned visit from an out of town friend to share with one group of friends about the product, I grabbed the samples I did have and headed out to hang out for the afternoon. Most of our day was focused on catching up but made sure to find time to share with them. I snagged examples and images from the party guide and website to share to show them the organizers in action. We talked about how versatile they would be in the kids room to hold art supplies. Combining the two drawer and four drawer units, clipping them together so they stayed together, was a great way to do just that. The smaller drawers worked perfectly for markers and pens and paint brushes, the larger drawers for paints and small stencils. Also, isn't it nice how the full drawer pulls out making it easy to access the right color too! We also talked about using the chair mat under the art table to help protect the flooring from any paint spills or other art mishaps. My friend with the youngest kiddos wasn't able to join us but I did tell her about the mats and how they work great under a high chair too.

When the rest of the product arrived, I set up for an 'around the house' party. I decided that I wanted to showcase the product in action. Since I had to move the party, I went with an open house style, to allow people to swing by when they could. It wasn't the gathering that I had planned but it was great and I got to spend time with everyone.

The art table:

When I was setting up, even though my art table has long been in storage (they just use their desks when they are doing something creative), I went ahead and filled a bin like I had discussed with my friends to share with others.
The kitchen:

In the Kitchen, I decided that the Deflecto Cubes were the perfect option for storing coffee and tea and associated supplies. I initially toyed with storing k-cups in the drawers but then decided that sweetener packets, drink mix and tea was a better combination. My k-cup caddy was able to easily sit on top of the unit, letting me store more in a small space. I also discovered that I could exchange drawers between sets - giving me two small and one large drawer in the unit.
The home office:

Who doesn't like to keep something sweet at hand. At our house, we do a mix of sweet and minty hard candies and the Deflecto Stackable Cubes gave me the chance to keep them all easily on hand with out them being in one container.
The homework/study desk:

Whether the desk in the bedroom is used for school or work, keeping it stocked and organized is helpful in providing a good environment to learn or complete that project for work. Here we again swapped some drawers around and used it to store pens, highlighters, dry erase, post it notes and more.
The bathroom:

One area that seems to be ever overflowing with small stuff, the bathroom counter was where I put to use a couple more Deflecto Stackable Cubes. Mix and match on the drawers was a great way to store the items of differnt sizes. The top makes a great space for those vitamins and pain releiver bottles too.
The computer desk:

My kids are older, so the floor mat works best in my house for the computer desk in the family room. It provides a pop of color and an easy way for the chair to roll at the desk. As you can see, I had some assistance from the cat in flattening it before placing it at the desk. That's an empty organizer on top of the desk there, perfect location for me to stock some pens and pencils for the desk and some candy too since it is often a place to game.

As I shared with friends about the product and the versatility, I shared some cubes and chair mats with them so that they could try them out for themselves. My friends shared with me how they decided to use their Deflecto Stackable Cubes that they took home. It was great to hear about other uses for the organizers - use in the camper to hold miscellaneious supplies neatly in the cabinet. Children using them to store their Calico Critters accessories. A teacher using one on her desk at school to organize desk supplies. A new at home office being set up with a chair mat to provide a pop of color to the room and an organizer on the desk for desk supplies.

Everyone agreed, the use of the product is varied and diverse. The product is well made and everyone liked how you could clip the units together to stack or have them stay together side by side. If you are looking to check them out, you can find them at Walmart, Office Depot and of course online at Amazon too (where I discovered the so many other organizers that they offer beyond the cubes and the chair mats).

No compensation was received for this review. All opinions expressed are my own or that of my family. Complimentary chair mats and organizer cubes were provided to me through Tryazon so that I could share my experience with friends and through my blog, with enough to share some with my friends too.
