  1. Secondhand Shopping
    So, today I bought a bunch of different baskets today at the thrift store for $0.50 each. Then, I spray painted them all red and put a pretty ribbon on them. The whole project cost $5 for 5 baskets with all the supplies. I used them to organize my spice cupboard and it looks fantastic. If you...
  2. Home and family challenges
    Twelve months, twelve projects. I noticed, immediately pre-Christmas (which is when I always notice, because it is too late to do it before company arrives) all the projects around the house that I *meant* to do before the end of the year. While it is still fresh in my mind, I am making my list...

  4. Home Environment
    This house is so completely unorganized that it's driving me crazy! Everything is in more than one room and nothing stays where it needs to stay. I have computer things in at least three rooms of the house, papers that are in file folders and not in file folders, etc. It's enough to make me want...
  5. Home Environment
    Just wondering what everyone's biggest challenge is when it comes to organizing? I'd have to say that mine is that I had ADD. I get myself nice and organized but it just doesn't seem to stay that way very long and it's so frustrating! :(

  7. Camping, RV's, Trailers, Outdoor Living
    Good morning! Well, we purchased a new camper this year and have been camping twice with it. FUN! However, we are climbing over our clothes and different items every time we go in it, and I can't stand the clutter! How do you organize your clothing in limited space? Suitcases don't seem to...

    Found in: The One-Minute Organizer: Plain and Simple by Donna Smallin (my favorite organizational author) -If the stack of paper in a file folder is more than one inch thick, separate the stack into two folders -choose staples over paper clips for keeping papers together in a file. Paper...

    I'm re-reading Julie Morgenstern's "Organizing from the Inside Out" and came across something that struck a chord with me. Basically, she says that organization shouldn't look the same for everyone. She says "If a person can find what they need when they need it, feels unencumbered in achieving...
  10. Home Environment
    With all that has been going on around here, housework has been neglected. There is stuff everywhere that shouldn't be. I need a total organizational overhaul. It's funny how just falling out of the cleaning routine for even just one week can totally throw your house out of whack! This week...
  11. Home Decorating
    Next time you spot an inexpensive old apothecary chest at a yard sale or flea market, (or in your grandparents' attic or basement), consider grabbing it for your bedroom, suggests interior designer Linda Stone, of Paul Stone Interiors in Hampton Falls, New Hampshire. The multiple drawers hold...

    If you can't find something in 30 seconds, it's in the wrong place.
  13. Just Tips
    Use an over the door shoe holder with see-through pouches to hold accessories (belt, jewelry, even socks) or kids toys that are small enough to place inside each pouch, but that always seem to be lost inside a toy chest.
  14. Home Environment
    I think these are good because they have to do, not just with organization, but with money as well. 'Crisis' purchases related to disorganization could cost as much as 15 to 20 percent of your annual budget - buying duplicates of misplaced or broken items, last-minute shopping at premium...
  15. Home Environment
    Just something to think about... Americans waste nine million hours per day searching for misplaced items, according to the American Demographics Society. The Wall Street Journal reported that the average U.S. executive wastes six weeks per year searching for missing information in messy desks...

    I'm not organized and have never been organized but would like to start. Whats your No. 1 tip for organization?
  17. Home and family challenges
    Okay, enough is enough. Every time I post my to do list for the day here, I always post, clean off computer desk. And, the truth is, I always PLAN to do it, but it just never gets done completely. I need to CLEAN OUT. Not just neaten up, but CLEAN IT OUT! Stuff needs to be filed, stuff...
