Turntable Organizing


I cannot believe how fast this year is going by.  Summer is almost here and they means half of the year is behind us.  Time certainly does fly by. 

A couple of months ago I mentioned in a blog post about living a minimalist lifestyle.  Now, we am far from doing this but my family and I are on the path to living this type of lifestyle.  It is really tough!  I am basically going room by room and getting rid of things that just are not needed.  This can be tough when sometimes you might use something and other times it sits on a shelf for six months.  I am determined for our family though to learn how to live with less and be happy about it.  I will share here over time how we are doing.  I subscribe to Becoming Minimalist here:  This site has been really helpful and there are great links there too!

Now for that wicky wacky turntable.  So my spices for cooking have been slowly building and my little spice cabinet was just not able to hold everything anymore!  So I thought about finally getting a turntable.  It is the first one I have bought and it is awesome!  I got this clear plastic one at Target(in the bathroom section) on clearance for $8.00.  Not bad.  It took me about five minutes to put it to good use!

Having some Pinterest control




Oh you awesome site!  You know who who are.  Pinterest is so cool and fun I never seem to be able to get enough of it.  I will spend a couple of hours just sitting and liking tons of stuff.  Before I know it, I have 20 new likes that I now have to go and Pin on my boards.

So, I have decided not to like anything else until I have pinned all my current likes to my board.  How crazy is this world when you have to start being organized on Pinterest?  Since I am doing it, I guess the world is pretty crazy or maybe it is just my OCD!  I have gotten down to less than 350 likes.  I did have over 500. 

Does anyone else do this?  How organized are you with Pinterest?

Closet Organization

I hope everyone is having a great week.  Just doing some odds and ends around the house this week.  That includes getting some painting done that I have been putting off for months.  Don’t judge!  Life gets in the way of painting sometimes and that is just how it goes.  Last week I decided to organize a space that has been getting out of control for awhile.  This one shelf in my daughter’s closet is always a mess.  Take a look!

Now I will introduce these little finds that I cam across at Target for $3.00 each.

kiddie acres and organizing 010Wow!  Love that shelf now!

The baskets fit perfectly and I had bought just enough to hold what I wanted to organize.  So easy and not time consuming at all.  Plus, I went through and got rid of some things that my daughter out grew or that she was just not using.  I love it when organization works out this great!!
