Tool Box Organization

Tool Box Organization: Ladies, I've found a way to justify my Silhouette Cameo Machine, with my husband.  It was at this moment that my husband actually said, "I'm glad you have this thing!" Oh ladies... if you've found yourself wanting a Silhouette Cameo Machine, but haven't quite convinced your husband of "why" you need one, then I may have just found the PERFECT excuse to actually pull the Silhouette out of your online shopping cart, and go to the "checkout!"  Gentlemen, if you're reading this... this MAY be the "manliest," thing I ever post about. So enjoy it. ;) Tool Cabinet Organization My husband was...

Restaurant Kit: Toddler Busy Bag

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone, promise! #MARVELSnackBar #CollectiveBias When I was a child, my parents took us out to eat MAYBE once a week.  Usually on a Friday.  It was a treat, for sure! Now... with my own little family... we eat out A LOT.  It's either because of a social event, or the day/evening got away from us, and eating out just seems like the easy idea.  Don't get me wrong, I wish we would eat at home more.  I'm sure it's more affordable that way... But sometimes, I wonder...

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...

Secrets to a “Guest Ready,” House in Minutes

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone, promise!  #RealLifeClean #CollectiveBias It's no secret that I love to entertain.  If you've been hanging around here for any amount of time, you've probably seen some of the parties that I have designed, and can tell that it's a HUGE passion of mine. Oh yes, the frilly cake stands... the fancy-schmancy hors d'oeuvres... it's all a blast. BUT... like everyone out there, we don't always have a months notice before we hear that someone is coming over.  If you're married to someone like my husband... it's typically, Oh...

Fantabulosity’s Fab Faves – Kate Spade Love – 2.27.15

I have a plan.  A plan that I think YOU'LL love.   This world is FULL of fantabulous "thangs," and I get a tear in my eye thinking of all of the "must-haves," that could pass us by without even knowing about them.  {Ok maybe I don't shed a tear, but part of a friendship is sharing and enjoying fabulous finds, and it would just be a lonely, lonely world without that camaraderie.} So what am I doing?  Eeeeeeek. Ok, I'm a tad excited. Every Friday, I will be posting my "Fab Faves," for you! In the blogging world, you wouldn't BELIEVE all of...

My Recent Trip to Target-Feeding the Addiction

My trips to Target are getting better.  Better?  Well by "better," I mean that I don't spend as much as I used to.  Possibly, it's because I go more often than I used to, rather than going twice a year, and feeling like I have to redecorate my entire house in that one trip.  :) {To my hubby: I promise I never do that.}  ;) You all seem to LOVE when I talk about my finds at Target, so I thought this time I'd just show you what my shopping bags coughed up when I got home. Yes, I love entertaining.  Didn't know...

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...

Medicine Cabinet Organization with FREE Printables

Hey there all of you wonderful people!  It's Friday and I'm feelin' fine.  I have dinner in the crockpot, a clean kitchen, kiddos are napping, a new Kitchenaid Mixer on the way {see my Facebook post}, and an organized medicine cabinet! Gotta apologize in advance for the "shadowy" (is that a word?) photo of my medicine cabinet organization.  Boooo!  My linen closet is in my hallway, and no matter what time of day I took the photos, it always came out with a shadowy look to it.  But... I couldn't wait any longer to spread the love with you all,...

Home Tour Part 7-The Pantry

Is the pantry considered a room?  Maybe not, but I'm always a fan of seeing pantry organization on Pinterest, or on my favorite organization blogs, so I thought I'd include it on my home tour.  If you missed the beginning of the "Home Tour" last month, you can see it here: Our Home Tour So I must start off by saying that this is a "before" photo of what our pantry WILL be... I have so many plans for this pantry, and it involves bins and baskets GALORE! I get so tired of seeing snacks scattered everywhere in boxes, so when...

Fantabulous Garage Organization Ideas

When I asked you all on Facebook, which area in your home needed organized the most, "Garage Organization," was the most requested!  So I immediately started looking for ideas, because friends... my garage needs organized too!  So here we go: First I'm going to show you two realistic garage organization ideas.  I did find some garage's that were fan-freakin-tabulous, but let's be real.  You know some of them were probably done by professionals, and most of us don't have the time to accomplish that.  My goal is to help you find ideas that can be realistic, like when I give...

Car Organization, Always Prepared

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 mini van, and I fell in LOVE with the idea.  I have to admit, I'm EXTREMELY jealous of her space that she has in her mini van, and what she had to work with.  Although I do drive the longest SUV they make, a mini van tends to just have more car organization capabilities, and cooler features.  {Speaking of... have you seen the new...
