DIY Washi Tape Organizer

DIY Washi Tape Organizer from old stamp box |

This DIY Washi Tape Organizer was an easy upcycle that took about 5 minutes hands-on time and cost me nothing! My washi tape was once organized on a dowel rod on my craft room pegboard, but then I put a roll of kraft paper on it…so my washi tape got piled on a shelf haphazardly. But […]

Organizational Printables: Meal Plan & Grocery List |

Organizational Printables: Meal Plan & Grocery List I promised I’d be back with more organizational printables! Meal planning really helps us stay within our food budget and stick to healthier eating. It also cuts down on trips to the grocery since I can shop for actual meals. You know, versus when I just go to the […]

Organizational Printables: Daily & Weekly Happy 2015! One of my favorite things about a new year is the chance to get more organized.

DIY Homework Command Center

DIY Homework Command Center |

The nook in our kitchen was organized at one point…and then we borrowed things from it for other spaces in the house. And then it just become a piling ground. My kids love to do art and all their homework on our kitchen table…and it’s ruining the top because they’re just rough on things! So I decided […]

DIY Craft Room: Jumbo Framed Pegboard Wall If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook, you’ve been getting a few sneak peeks of this project we completed last weekend. Prior to a week ago, my craft “space” was the laundry room, which was shared with the dogs and the laundry machines. As it only had […]

DIY Cabochon Push-Pins

DIY Cabochon Push Pins

I’ve had a bin of these pretty resin cabochons sitting in my craft supplies for months and finally figured out something simple and new to do with them (in a previous post I showed you how to make DIY Vintage Style Rings and Hair Pins with these). You can find these in abundance on Etsy […]

DIY Family Command Center

DIY Family Command Center

For the first few months in this house, this nook was more of a junk piling area. There just isn’t much storage in the house and no basement. So to help get organized, I asked my husband to put shelves…pretty much everywhere. A few weeks ago I shared our DIY Shelved Gallery Wall. I started […]

Getting Organized with Martha Stewart Home Office with Avery

Oh, how an email from someone in the Martha Stewart offices always makes my day. This time I was offered to review a bunch of goodies from the Martha Stewart Home Office with Avery line (available at Staples). I’ve done several product reviews for Martha Stewart products and I never fail to be pleasantly surprised […]

Turn a Spare Room into an Organized Closet

One great thing about this home is that it has plenty of rooms. One thing is does not: closet space!  The upstairs has a bit of an awkward layout too, which I’m guessing is due to the time it was divided into several apartments.  You have to walk through the master bedroom to get into my craft room (a former […]

I recently received the opportunity to review the new Discbound Notebook from Martha Stewart Home Office (TM) with Avery (TM) which is available exclusively at Staples.  I jumped at it because I love organization and because, well, who doesn’t love Martha?  I’m also a huge fan of doing some things, like keeping our life and schedules […]

Mini Trash Bag Holder…Great for the car!

I know these trash bag holder’s aren’t anything new but I thought it would be a great idea to make a mini-version specifically for the car.  I always keep a stash of plastic bags in the seat back for empty Starbucks cups, the fossilized Chick-Fil-A Nuggets and empty lollipop sticks I regularly find in the […]

It doesn’t get easier than this Simple Shower Organization Tip! Getting the bathroom organized with three small kids is an ongoing process, but we stumbled upon a simple way to organize our shower during one of our many Air Force moves. As a general rule, I am not a fan of brass fixtures so when […]

Master Bedroom Makeover

It’s done!!!!  It’s more of a mini-makeover but since we’ll be moving again sometime this year I didn’t want to paint the walls or anything major.  We also plan to buy new bedroom furniture when we move since I’ve had this set since college.  Except for the platform bed, which my handy hubby made!  The […]
