Products I Can’t Live Without

Monday, February 6th, 2012

I thought it would be fun, for once, to sit down and consider all the products I use around my house to keep us all clean and organized.  Of course, I would be lost without my three hole punch, my scrapbook glue (which makes and repairs a myriad of things) and my computer.  But there […]

Friday, February 3rd, 2012

Until a few years ago, cleaning your washer seemed like a ridiculous idea. I mean, you put soap in there every time you use it, right? What could be cleaner than soap?

Home Organization Tip #2

Monday, December 5th, 2011

Use gift bags to store items. Gift bags come in every size, color and design imaginable.  You can find them at the dollar store for as little as 50 cents.  They are large, beautiful, and require no effort to look nice.  Painting boxes or covering them with scrapbook paper takes a bit of time and […]

Home Organization tip #1

Tuesday, November 29th, 2011

Always store things close to where you will use them. You wouldn’t put the toothpaste in the garage. Or the pots in the bedroom. People would be amazed at how many steps they take across the kitchen to get a pot or across the house to fetch the iron. If you keep the iron and […]
