    The Low Tech, Low Price Gadgets to Help Get You Organized I showed on World News Now.

    PET GADGETS I SHOWED ARE HERE: http://gizwizbiz.squarespace.com/world-news-now-abc/?currentPage=2

    My Gadgets to Get Organized spot as seen on air is here:  https://www.facebook.com/ABCWorldNewsNow/videos/584531228668663/  

    Gadgets to get organized are all under $20.  (If you missed my spot, I'll post a link once here it airs on World News Now.)

    What can you do with all that junk you have jumbled in one of the kitchen drawers. Well you can organize it with the Junk Drawer Organizer. This looks like a silverware tray, but it's designed to help you keep all of your miscellaneous objects organized. A few of the 23-compartments are specially shaped for things like scissors, Scotch Tape, etc. A sliding top-tray adds extra space for convenient storage of those small items that are easily lost in a drawer. I paid about $12 on Amazon for my Junk Drawer Organizer and I ended up buying two more to use in my office.

    Have small counter appliances that have to be moved to be used?

    Then check out the Countertop Rolling Tray.

    Do you have an appliance that you can't use while it's under a hanging cabinet above? You know things like a blender where you need to open the top, or a Kcup machine you need to fill with water and drop in a new Kcup? This clever tray lets you easily slide small kitchen appliances (up to 25 pounds) in and out from under overhead cabinets. You move the some appliance by pressing the lever on the front of the tray. Let it go, it locks in place. It also has a non-slip pad to help keep small appliances in place And need I say it --- appliance NOT included! I paid about $15 on Amazon.

    Have all sorts of batteries loose in a drawer?

    You need a Battery Storage Device (with) a handy battery tester 

    Forget about having loose batteries all over the place. Batteries can actually short out and lose power touching one another or other metal objects when thrown loose in a drawer. There's even a video I saw that shows a 9V battery starting a fire when it contacts the strands of a steel wool pad. Scary. This battery case holds 93 batteries of all sizes, including AAA, AA, 9-volt, D-type, C-type, and even flat cell batteries. The lid is said to be shatter-resistant, transparent acrylic for easy visibility. Also included is an easy-to-use battery tester. The one I bought is branded Bell & Howell but you'll find almost identical ones on Amazon too. I shopped for the one with the lowest price, which was under $20.

    Too many shoes and too little space?

    Meet Shoe Slotz.

    These plastic storage devices double your current shoe storage space. It lets you place one shoe over the other shoe on a slanted, attached shelf. It also makes it easier to find the pair you want. Works well sitting on shelves, in cabinets, or directly on the floor. Works with most men's, women's, and children's shoes, but not very high shoes or boots which are too tall. Pack includes 6 units, each capable of holding 1 pair of footwear. I use these and they work well. I bought mine on Amazon, but they're also available at Bed, Bath & Beyond. About $15 for 6 pairs.

    They are also available to Bed Bath And Beyond.

    Get your business cards organized!

    Do it with the mini Business Card File 

    Do you collect a lot of business cards. And do you have business cards on your dresser, desk, and in your briefcase? I didn't have a central place to keep business cards until someone showed me this miniature file cabinet. It provides storage for 800 business cards and you'll know where they are. It's made of sturdy plastic and available in silver or brown color. The top drawer has a built-in digital clock with date. A-Z card index dividers are included. Dimensions: 6.5" x 4.5" x 6.5". It's a bit pricey considering it's just made of plastic, but it should help you save time finding business cards you need. Under $16.

    Need to carry your own business cards with you?

    Mini Suitcase Biz Card Holder. Yep, looks exactly like an aluminum suitcase with pop-open latches, but it's it's tiny, ideal for carrying business cards. Here are a few more details via Amazon:  Material: aluminum alloy Business Credit ID Card Holder Metal Frame Case Organizer
    Exquisite mini briefcase design. (It has worked pop-open snaps, just like a real full-sized suitcase. Can put about 30pcs business cards. Suggested maximum size of each card: 3.6 x 2.1 in. From the Giz Wiz: It's available in several colors. I bought silver. The photo says: "silver" but it looks more pink-like in the picture. For some reason black was $10.49 and the other colors were $9.98, as of 11/14/18.
