Organize Holiday Bins – Free Spreadsheet + Vinyl Labels

Do you have a crazy amount of holiday decorations stored in bins? Our attic is bin heaven... If I had to guess we have a good 50+ holiday bins. Probably of those 50 bins, 20 are easily Halloween. For years, we have talked about coming up with a holiday bin organization spreadsheet. You see, since we blog, we tend to have to work on holiday projects throughout the year. Think working on Halloween projects during Valentine's Day and Christmas in June (our poor child is going to be so confused with … [Read more...]

Easy Garage Organization with Rubbermaid FastTrack 5 Piece Kit

This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and Rubbermaid, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #FastTrack Our garage is one place that we continue to neglect.

Once we are done with the nursery (only one more piece of furniture to build and two more walls to … [Read more...]

Organize the Coat Closet in Minutes!

Before our baby shower I was all about getting our house cleaned up and organized. Maybe this is partly due to "nesting", but one thing that has bothered me for years (and yet I've never done anything before last month about it) was our coat closet. For a couple that lives in Florida we sure do have a lot of coats, gloves, scarves, and hats. This is the only linen like closet we have in our home. The builder who built our home back in 2005 thought it was a good idea to not add any linen closets … [Read more...]

How to De-Clutter a Room… aka clean it out for a nursery!

  Warning: these are not pretty photos. All photos taken on my iPhone that we are about to share!  I think the hardest part about our big nursery project is cleaning out the guest room. Over the past 4.5 years our guest room has been our "dumping ground". Yes, you read that correctly. We would just dump whatever it was into that room. And then when we had a family member come to visit we were running around frantically trying to move all the crap out of the room to get it "guest" … [Read more...]

Favorite Apps to Stay Organized!

Today, I want to talk about my favorite organizational resources. I could not live without my iPhone. This piece of technology has changed my life. Not only is it my means to verbally communicate with the world, but it's also keeps me organized. Way more organized than I've ever been in my life! I wanted to share 3 apps that I could not live without on my iPhone. I didn't feel that sharing more information about the "notes" app was needed. You simply jot notes down--but the other 3--if you … [Read more...]

Mod Podge Haul

I applied to participate in a Mod Podge campaign with the Blueprint Social last month, and ever since I found out I got the campaign I've been anxiously awaiting my box of goodies from Plaid Crafts. Every day for the past week I've been seeing photos of the box surface as more and more bloggers received their box. After seeing a few more photos yesterday, and pouting, because let's be honest--it's not fun when you see everyone else getting their box and you haven't gotten your box yet, I began … [Read more...]

How I Manage Physical & Digital Clutter

I'm often asked how I manage so many extracurricular activities outside of my day job and my home life. For the most part I'm very organized. Being organized does not have to be a daunting task.

It's a lot of life for one person to handle, but I do it with a smile on my face daily! Today I want to talk about staying organized in the office whether this … [Read more...]
