Archives for May 2010 Memorial Day Sale

On this glorious 3-day weekend I have been so super busy as I'm sure the rest of you have been.  I am however, still a shopoholic at heart and had to take 5 mins out of my very busy weekend to see what sales are going on.  I perused the internet careful to remember that I don't need this or that, this all just window shopping. I did want to mention to those of you looking for a great … [Read more...]

Saltwater Canvas Has The Ultimate Beach Bag

I am an over packer.  There I said it.  I do it because I hate to think that I might be in a situation and not be prepared.  I mean doesn't everyone carry around 3 different kinds of sunblock? A few years ago the Saltwater Canvas bag was suggested to me by some friends, and I balked at it swearing it could never hold everything I needed it to.  No bag has ever done that.  I was so wrong.  I was … [Read more...]

Memorial Day — An Excuse For A Picnic

It occurred to me today that I do not have any plans for this 3 day weekend.  NONE!  Is that right?  Shouldn't my children have some fun?  If the weather permits I'm going to convince R we should take the kids to the beach.  The boys love it, they would have fun.  It's just that I'm sure they will be super crowded which is not our style.  However, it will be fun to get them in their swimsuits for … [Read more...]

Chic and Cheap Storage Box

I'm going to say this out loud: IKEA rocks!  I go in that store and it's a warehouse of pure joy to me.  My husband likes the kitchen stuff and I love...well what's not to love.  However, it's the storage items that always gets me going.  The best part is everything is super duper cheap.  Not in quality, but in price. About a year ago I bought a package of the Lingo boxes.  At the time I didn't … [Read more...]

I’m Not Organized Yet

I've been writing this blog for over a year reviewing the items I feel have helped me organize along the way.  So many people have said to me "oh I wish I was as organized as you."  I feel like they don't really know that I have a Monica closet (a la Friends), or even worse many cabinets and closets.  Many of my organizational products come from searching for the right thing for a long time. I … [Read more...]
