Getting Organized

I know a lot of people have decided to take on this task for the New Year and I am not going CRAZY with organizing but I did do a little around the house. I also wanted to share one of my organizing secrets that my mother of eight taught me.

Want to know what it is...

 It is this little guy! I purchased it from Bed Bath and Beyond.

You can thank me later ;)

It makes it easy to spin around and grab what you need. I use it for my hair products, cleaning supplies, spices... you name it.

Some more organizing I have done around the house:

Before: (my craft stuff was everywhere)

After: (craft stuff now tucked away in shelves)

*** update... I changed up the white board to this...

My favorite part of my craft room section of my shared office with my husband, are these vintage pieces.

Here are a few other tools and ideas to help get you organized:

A decluttering Calender for 2012: a small thing to declutter each day. Sounds easy enough right?

You can download the calender HERE.

This is another helpful free download to help you get organizing and cleaning, which I should be doing instead of blogging :) This free download comes from Evelyn kate designs she also has some other great printables.

Here is something fun. This is how my mom keeps organized when she has all 42 of us over. It is easier to reuse plastic cups so the dishwasher isn't constantly running :)

I think you are suppose to use it for empty wine glasses... our version is close right lol ;)

This post will be linked up here:


  1. Thank you so much for linking up! I just did a whole organization week so the bug totally bit me! It is so nice to get things all cleaned up!!

  2. I'm in the midst of creating a little craft corner for myself. Thanks for the ideas. I'm your newest follower.

  3. Love your ideas for organizing. Your craft supplies look so cute all organized inthe white shelves. I always like to clean at the beginning of the year too, I wonder why it's not as talked about as "spring cleaning".

  4. Where did you get the wall art "Be REAL?" Love it.
