Organizing with Rubbermaid All Access

Organizing All Access

Our laundry room is the catch-all room. I have a table in there with my sewing machine, my color printer and underneath is the storage of so many different things that it's hard to even say what it is other than a hodge-podge of life. I discovered the great idea of Rubbermaid® All Access™ bins at Home Depot and knew exactly where I was going to use them. Home Depot is a convenient place to … [Read more...]

Screen Shot 2013-10-17 at 9.13.10 AM

One thing I'm asked a lot is how to get rid of all of the unwanted items. I've done many posts on cleaning out toys and getting rid of clothes, but what I want to touch on here is that by donating what you clean out to Goodwill® you are actually creating a job. Did you know that? Neither did I, but now I'm glad I've been donating to them all of these years. A simple item donated to … [Read more...]

Tips For Shopping School Supplies

School Supplies

I need to confess to you something that I cannot quit: buying school supplies. Yes, I've graduated to pretty office supplies for the most part, but truth be told when back-to-school time is upon us, and I can't help but get giddy inside. Just like I did when I had that school supply list in my hands when I was in school. Every office supply store and discount chain has school supplies, and you … [Read more...]

Storage For MegaBloks & Legos

MegaBloks storage Collage

You may have seen my post earlier this month about A's new Barbie MegaBloks mansion, and wondered where I was going to store such an intricate and multi piece toy. I was too. Those itty bitty pieces were driving me crazy and I needed to wrangle them quick. My 4 year old is the messiest of my 3 kids, and frankly doesn't put anything away. I had to do something and quick. The supplies to … [Read more...]

The Fresh20 Makes Meal Planning Easy + #Giveaway

TheFresh20Cookbook-Summer-2-Menu

I may be organized in many many ways, but meal planning I cannot seem to get my head wrapped around. I've tried method after method after method. I think my hatred of cooking may have something to do with it. I can cook, and I'm good at it, but don't like doing it. It doesn't take me to the zen place that so many claim to go, so of course meal planning just seemed like a chore. All of this stopped … [Read more...]

I have 8.5 and 7 year old boys who share a room. Can you imagine what that room looks like on a regular basis? No? Don't worry because I'm going to show you what a mess that room WAS. Was? Why did I say was? Well that's because I got a few key items from Trinity, and the room has a whole new look. My sons aren't good with the "clean up your room" command. No matter how much organization I … [Read more...]

At the end of a year I like to look back at all of the products I have tried over the year, and which 5 products stand out from the crowd.

This is in no particular order so I only numbered to identify the pictures. 1. My … [Read more...]

Putting Old Slides on DVD With YesVideo

That's me! Aren't I cute as a baby?

When I decided to do this project I started it out in the pursuit to surprise my dad with converting his old slides onto DVD. I never thought that YesVideo doing this for me was much more than a gift to my father. It was a gift to my entire family of memories long forgotten, or in some cases unknown. When I got the disc and started looking through the pictures I was stunned. I got to see a … [Read more...]

A Millennium Falcon Bag That Organizes Too

millennium falcon collage1

I've been a lover of the Neat-Oh Zip Bins for years. We've had many different ones over the years, and my boys have always loved the ability to carry their stuff and unzip for a fun play mat. Not only do they make bins that unzip into play mats they have bags too. One of our favorites when the boys were little they loved their Hot Wheels Wheelie Backpack. I remember them unzipping it and making … [Read more...]
