Custom spice drawer insert...✅check! . I moved my spices into this drawer and used this pretty set of glass jars earlier this year, but I haven’t been able to find an organizer that’s quite the right size so I decided to make one! . What do we think?! I was nervous about fitting that 4th row in back there but it worked out! . I’ve wanted to do this project for months now and when I finally got around to it, it really took me less than an hour to make! Funny how easy it is to put off simple projects, isn’t it? . You can find these inexpensive glass jars (they come with labels!) and the label maker I used for my labels in my Amazon shop!

Sunday And Monday Start - Small Stuff Counts

many of us are in the thick of the school semester and kids’ activities, wrapping up fall cleaning and yardwork before the temperatures fall, and anticipating the holidays with to-do lists, gift lists, and planning get-togethers. If you’d like to save some time and plan ahead for December too, go ahead and click here > How to use the free printable calendar Put these calendars to use by keeping track of your family’s day-to-day activities. The simple black and white design looks fresh and modern when printed on white paper, but you can add a pop of color by writing on it with colored pens or by printing it on colored paper!

In my natural habitat today (my house, organizing😉) and got Chloe’s clothes all sorted through. Her dresser is cleaned out and ready for fall weather now! (Is it bad if I’m totally ready for sweater weather? Anyone else?) These dresser drawers were messy and full of things she doesn’t fit in anymore (somehow I blinked and she turns THREE this fall!). It always helps to take some time to clean out the outgrown clothes and straighten things up! Now there’s room to spare (well, at least for as long as I can resist buying more cute toddler girl stuff😊). Oh, and for the record: pretty wrapping paper in the bottom drawers will make you smile every time. Also, did you know those pink drawer dividers are a stupid simple DIY using diaper box pieces wrapped in paper? They’ve held up for 3 years and are awesome for keeping these little clothes in rows. Hope this inspires you to clean out a drawer of clothes this week! It’s surprising how much space you can create just by folding everything nicely.

2020 Amazon Prime Day Deals For Organizing, DIY & Home

Last year, Prime Day was Amazon’s biggest sales day, even bigger than Black Friday, and this year the buzz is that the deals will be bigger and better than ever.

If you don’t already have Amazon Prime, sign up for a free 30-day trial so you’re ready to take advantage of the deals if one of your items goes on sale.

My poor husband finally got a long overdue update to his office this weekend. Swipe to see the jungle theme he’s lived with for THREE YEARS! He even still had the jungle curtain on the window that the prior owners left behind🤣. With bright blue walls, blades of grass painted all around the walls/baseboards, and a giant tree that went up onto the ceiling, this was a job for quality paint! I partnered with @clarepaint to update this room using their paint, primer AND ceiling paint. One weekend of painting later and you’d never know that giant tree used to be in this corner! 😍What do you think of this moody wall color? It’s called Shade and it feels so cozy and perfect in here.

Sunday And Monday Start - Small Stuff Counts

I love spending this month finalizing Halloween costumes and party plans, visiting the pumpkin patch with my family, perfecting my fall home decor, and starting on Thanksgiving and Christmas plans.

How are you guys organizing all these face masks? I feel like ours are multiplying and ending up all over the place! . Today’s quick #smallstuffsaturday project was setting up a little system for masks. It’s nothing fancy, but I added a little container on the table for our clean masks to go after they’re washed. This way they’re all in on spot and convenient to grab by our keys so we don’t forget. . I also hung a mesh laundry bag on a hook in our entryway for used masks. This way they have one place to go when we come home and then we can throw the whole bag in the washer and not have to touch them a second time. . I’m calling this project a quick win for today!! Hope you have a wonderful Saturday!

How to Organize Kids' Dishes In A Drawer

Young kids will love being able to help by setting the table and unloading the dishwasher. When it comes to organizing kids’ dishes, the key has been to keep it simple–after all, it’s a kids’ space! Organizing this island drawer was a quick project that made a big difference in our day-to-day routine.

Is your tupperware a mess? Y’all ask me almost every day how I organize mine and I finally shared it in stories today! How’s this look?! . A couple tips: 🔹Stack containers by size with lids underneath or nearby 🔹 Declutter and get rid of extra lids, mismatched containers, and anything broken 🔹 Having a uniform set of containers with only a few lid sizes makes things easier to find and keep looking tidy 🔹 test out layouts until you find one that work best and try to locate your most-used containers in the front . I’ve been meaning to do this for a while! It feels so tidy now and the pretty drawer liner makes me smile😊.

😍My freezer got a makeover today and I’m feeling GOOD!! What do you think?! . You just can’t beat a quick project like this, right? A half hour later and my mess of a freezer looks a million times better! . I used The Home Edit Divided Freezer Bins by @idlivesimply and they were just what I needed!🙌🏻 . 🤔Now tell me the truth, on a scale of 1 to 10 (1 being a disaster and 10 being worthy of an appearance on the new @thehomeedit show), how would you rate the state of your freezer? . #brandambassador
