Chic, compact, practical: Storage for light bulbs.



Many NAPO Business Partners offer NAPO Members and their clients tools and resources to become organized and become more productive. The following sponsored blog is courtesy of new NAPO Business Partner, bulbNest.

The old adage, ‘necessity is said to be the mother of invention’, was true for local inventor Wendy Lemke after she dropped and broke an expensive LED bulb while recovering from an ankle injury. “There I was on a knee scooter, surrounded by shards of glass, and upset about breaking an expensive bulb when I decided that I could find a better way,” said Lemke. “I began working with Denver designers and manufacturers and we developed a market-ready product to solve the problem.”

That product is the bulbNEST, a practical and convenient way to store light bulbs. With its bright yellow lid and holes on the sides of the box, this chic and compact organizer is easy to spot and grab from shelves. The bulbNEST Classic holds the most commonly used household bulbs: 6 standard and 2 spotlights. Each bulb is held securely in place as it is ‘nested’ in the box.

This new-to-market product became a reality when Lemke was chosen to participate in Walmart’s Made in America program in the summer of 2017; immediately landing the product on the digital shelves of, as well as spurring Lemke to offer the bulbNEST on her own web site

Today she is proud to offer a practical product that upholds her high standard of quality. The bulbNEST helps keep life organized, prevents bulbs from rolling around shelves, or even worse-breaking. Between the cost of popular LED bulbs, and their long shelf-life, it’s both an investment and a great way to organize!
Additionally, Lemke is proud to put people to work as the bulbNEST is entirely Made in the USA, and is designed to nest light bulbs in a sturdy, 100% post-consumer waste corrugated board container. It also uses water-based inks to reduce the carbon footprint, and paper which is whitened without aggressive bleaching, making bulbNEST a sustainable product.
We recommend keeping a bulbNEST on each floor of the house or even in each room so you can always find the right bulb when you need it.
