Inexpensive Storage & Cute to Boot

I found these awesome cute pink containers at THE DOLLAR STORE!!!!  Love getting a great deal on containers.  These are in my daughter's room.  I like that they have handles to carry around.  The rectangle containers I got from the kids dept. at IKEA.  Another awesome place with great deals.  I think I got all three for around ten bucks.  So don't think you always have to spend big money for great storage solutions!  Have a great day!

Organized Garage

We got it done!  It only took about 3 to 4 hours to make our garage look presentable again.  I would still like to work on the laundry area, but for now we are very satisfied.  The kids had fun helping too!

I have been collecting glass jars here and there.  I used these to put nails and screws in.  I then took a sharpie and put the size on the jar.

I used an old red and blue pocket organizer for cords and chargers.  We put it on the wall to have easy access.

I finally labeled all the plastic containers!  It looks so nice!

We did have some old toys and household items that will be going to charity and we threw away about two bags of trash or broken items.

With just a little time and effort, anyone can make their garage functional.  Happy Monday everyone!

New Year

There are so many resolutions I want to make happen this year and one is to blog more.  I am still trying to figure it all out, but I guess it will just take time. 

One resolution we have as a family is to eat out less.  So far, I am not doing well.  I get so tired of eating the same old fast food but yet, I find myself doing it at least 3 times a week.  I will make posts throughout the year and I hope that sooner than later, it will get easier to make all our meals at home.

My husband and I are going to tackle cleaning up the garage this weekend.  It will not be a full organization job, but just a small step in the right direction.  Will post some pics in the next few days.

I hope everyone is having a great 2012!
