Mail. It’s basically the best and worst thing ever. How fun is it to receive a letter or an invitation!! And open it as soon as you see it, probably dropping something in the meantime. Then squeezed in between are the inevitable bills and junk mail. Womp womp. You go through and open a few […]

Laundry Room

We can all agree that any room can end up being a catch-all for whatever it is that doesn’t have a place or isn’t put pack in its place. But we think it’s safe to say that the laundry room is definitely on the top of that list, where things just seem to accumulate. Start by […]

Clothing Storage

Space can be hard to come by, let alone storage (especially if you live in the city!). So anything to get a few inches of more storage space sounds like a win in our book! File folding. We have mentioned this before, but we can’t stress it enough! The file folding method is a way […]

1 drawer, 4 ways

Organizing drawers can be a lot like a real life version of Tetris. Configuring and re-arranging so everything can fit just right. Some drawers need all the compartments they can get and others may need just one or two. We like to measure the drawers, gather everything that we want inside each drawer, and head […]

Spring Cleaning: How to sell your used clothing

Let’s be honest, most closets are filled with great clothing pieces that just don’t seem to get worn as often as they should. That also doesn’t mean we should continue to hold onto them, but it can be hard to just give away or donate clothing pieces when you spent a pretty penny for them. […]

Spring cleaning: organizing kid’s art supplies/art room

Before the organization begins, you will need a child (or two), a few pieces of scrap paper, and a pencil sharpener. Have them go through all the markers by using the scribble test and toss any that have dried up or are goopy. It is also a great time to sharpen all colored pencils and toss […]

Playroom Organizing Tips

We have seen our fair share of playrooms and it is safe to say that it is near impossible to have only 5 trucks or only 5 dolls. Holidays, birthdays, good behavior, whatever the reason, toys accumulate at such an incredible rate! With so many toys, kids can forget what they even have! The best […]
