New Year's Resolution Checkup

It's January 27. Just a couple more days until the end of the first month of the year. Just about the right time for a progress report on those New Year's resolutions, don't you think? So, the big question: How are you doing on your New Year's resolution? ... Me? I'm doing okay. I resolved to actually read all of my book club books. That one is a struggle. I'm 0 for 1. And I picked the book! But, I also resolved to be more organized. Luckily, I don't have to do that one all on my own. I've been using my Tango Travel Wallet as a home organizer. I keep my receipts, credit cards, rewards cards, and coupons in it. I've never been more efficient at the store. So, on that one, I'll give myself an A+. (Alright, fine, I'll give half the credit to the Tango.)

Lug + YouTube Videos = Cinematic Gold

This morning's announcement of the 2011 Oscar nominees got me thinking about the movies, which got me thinking that I definitely need to make more trips to the theater, which made me think, "nah, I really like watching movies at home," which made me think "maybe I can watch some things on my computer," which eventually led me to YouTube and a search for Lug videos (like this awesome one I told you about a couple of posts ago). And look what I found! A Lug station with nine videos. If you've ever been sitting at home, looking through the Lug catalog at, say, a Snuz Sac, and thinking, "Man, I wish I could see that Snuz Sac on video," well, now you can! Check out our videos on the Puddle Jumper, Shuttle Bus, Taxi, Cabby, Flatbed, Nap Sac, and Snuz Sac.

Lug Makes Top 10 List for Best Organizing Products of 2011!

The aces of organization over at Organize Anything have come up with their very own top 10 list—a collection of products that, as they say, "just make life simpler." You'll find none other than our beloved Puddle Jumper, that brilliant bag with more pockets and pouches than a kangaroo farm, listed at number three (though, I should note, the products were listed in no particular order).

So, you heard it from the pros: If you're in the market for a bag that'll keep even the most hectic lifestyle in order, look no further than the Puddle Jumper!

Check out the complete list here.

Today's Parent Loves Lug

In the current issue of Today's Parent, you'll find a great story called "It's All in the Bag." And in that story, you'll find that Today's Parent thinks our Mini Puddle Jumper is the ideal bag for the mom of a preschooler:

Ready to ditch the diaper bag? Choose a roomy, multi-functional tote (one you can also use as your gym bag, for example) with different compartments. Our pick: Lug Mini Puddle Jumper Day Bag

We agree! But it's such a versatile bag, we're also curious: How do you use your Mini Puddle Jumper?

... And I'm loving all the bright colors! One of the many reasons I love Lug.

Lug's Baby Boom

Congrats to Michelle (left), who just had her baby girl, Olivia, and Allison, who is going on maternity leave tomorrow! Our beloved baby mamas are in good shape to welcome their little bundles, with our smart satchels that make for brilliant baby bags. A favorite? The Tuk Tuk Carry All, with its pockets for baby bottles; separate compartments for diapers, extra clothes, and toys; and handy handles that attach to a stroller. And for all those baby things that need to be kept on ice, the Pedals Lunch Tote is a great option that slips into any bigger bag.

Congrats again to our new moms!

Happy New Year!

So, it's the Tuesday after New Years. Have you made your New Year's resolution yet? If you answered no, well ... you're four days late. But, better later than never! As we told you here, Lug is getting fit this year. Health and wellness are always good goals and some of the most popular New Year's resolutions out there. But if you're looking for some different ideas, we've got a few.

Write a letter every week: Whether it's a little postcard you drop in the mail while you're on a trip, a "thinking of you" card for a friend, or a longer letter to a loved one, cards are always cherished. It only takes a couple of minutes once a week to make someone's day.

Volunteer once a month: Volunteering is one of those things that seems almost selfish because it always makes you feel good after helping someone or supporting a cause. So, why not feel good all year by helping others?

Join a club: There are a ton of clubs out there! Book clubs, investment clubs, cooking clubs, gardening clubs, travel clubs. Find one you're interested in and get out there. You'll meet some great new people and probably learn something along the way.

We'd love to hear about your New Year's resolution and add to our list of ideas. And remember, it's never too late to start a resolution.
