So the new trick up my sleeve, (thanks to Blue I Style) is my...

How to Declutter & Organize. The Harsh Truth.

I'm sooo not a hoarder. I think there could be a good chance that I would be a packrat, if we lived in the same house for years. Or had plans to. But... we tend to move at least every couple of years, and the clutter... just doesn't happen, because I don't allow it to. So after years of decluttering, I wanted to share my decluttering tips with you.How to Declutter & Organize:1.  Start with one room. If that's too overwhelming for you, start with one small space. I'll admit, I usually have to start with a small space, and expand...

How to ORGANIZE Your Reward Cards!

I have a MAD crush on Pinterest. At times I wonder how we even lived without it. Did we actually have to come up with ideas on our own? Boring. ;)  At some point in my "pinning," career I came across a way to organize my reward cards. (I can't begin to tell you where I saw this.. because silly me, I didn't "pin," it. So make sure you "pin," this one, so you don't forget to do it, when you have time!)This has been one of the most HELPFUL tips that I have found, and as always... I must share...

Printable Organization for Kids

If you're like me, you see TONS of free lesson plans and printables on Pinterest that you want to print out for your kids to work on. Drawing, coloring, matching, shapes, and the list goes on. For a while, I struggled with printing something out on a whim, and I'd cross my fingers that I'd remember to pull it off of the printer for my toddler to work on the next day. In the meantime, we'd make it about half way through the stack of printables, life would happen, and then I'd find the other half of the printables ripped in...

Car Organization Ideas

I can't BEGIN to tell you how many times this little car organization project has come to my rescue. While browsing Pinterest one day, I ran across a lady who did something like this in her minivan, and I fell in LOVE with the idea.I have to admit, I'm EXTREMELY jealous of her space that she has in her minivan, and what she had to work with. Although I do drive the longest SUV they make, a minivan tends to just have more car organization capabilities and cooler features.Anyhoo, I found the root of this idea on The Castro Happynings...
