IO Annual Summer Party

Almost our whole team gathered last Saturday at Eastlake Bar & Grill to celebrate another year with Innovatively Organized.  Our Second Annual Summer Party was full of great people, amazing Seattle weather, and delicious food (hummus and pita bread, calamari, flourless chocolate cake!).  We had almost as many accountants in attendance as we did professional organizers, plus a handful of Virginia Tech Hokies.

Innovative Idea: Menu Storage

A while ago, we went to a restaurant that had the menus built into the sides of the table.  As professional organizers, we were highly impressed by their creative use of space and efficient planning!  As hungry restaurant-goers, we were pleased to find our menus so quickly!  To operate a restaurant, this idea is not only innovative and fun, it is incredibly functional.  The hosts don’t have to worry about finding rogue menus everywhere, nor do the waiters have to fuss with collecting the menus once customers have ordered.
