Pet Supply Organizer

Hi everyone! It’s been a while, but I’ve been busy with making an organizing product for you! 😀  It started out as a pet supply organizer, but we now realize there’s more we can organize for you with this product.  It’s going to be great around all areas of the house – pets, bedrooms, closets, washrooms, entrance, garage, sports, gift wrap, knitting, crafts, etc, etc.

Here’s a sneak peek:

Junk Drawer NO MORE!

Are you looking for a quick and easy way to clear the clutter from some of your utensil drawers, if not all? There are certainly a lot of ways to do this, but the main advice I can give is that you should keep things separated so everything doesn’t end up in a big jumbled mess. Once you get things separated(a system in place), it’s a lot easier to maintain it. You won’t be scrambling to find everything, saving you time and hassle. Read More→

Display the Hidden Gems

We ALL have valued items stored in a bin or a box somewhere.  We save items, hidden away, waiting for it to become valuable.  Or perhaps we have it stored, waiting for someone to WANT our items – maybe a child or grandchild.  If you knew what to do with these items right now, would you? Well, I think I may be able to help.

Organizing the kids artwork

kids artwork 002
How do you deal with your child’s “beautiful” artwork from school, daycare and/or pre-school?  There is a virtual plethora of paper that streams through your door on a daily basis.  Are we really expected to KEEP all this?!  If you actually ASK your children, they will unequivocally  say, “YES!”   My first recommendation is – Do NOT ask your children. 😉 In the future, they will thank-you for not handing them 10 boxes filled with stuff for them to unclutter when they come of age.

Get Your Child Organized (During the Holidays)

Do you find yourself constantly cleaning up after the kid’s toys, strewn around the home? Kids accumulate a ton of stuff and it seems to find its way into every room – mainly on the floor, right? Though your child may think nothing of it, it’s extremely frustrating for parents to continuously clean up after them, over and over and over… The Holiday season is a great time to get kids to pitch in and get them in the habit of keeping organized. Anticipation of gifts, Santa(if that’s your tradition), or any other celebratory item, can be used to “help” kids co-operate with new rules better than some other times of the year.

Throughout this post I will show you just a few ways to get kids started(I WILL write more in future posts; stay tuned, as this topic is HUGE and could fill a book 🙂 )

Getting your kids to get into the habit of keeping organized, will not only be an asset to you, but also to your children’s future. Organization spills over in many other areas in life. Here are just a few examples: Read More→
