How to Store Excess Bedroom Items

So you’ve probably been a little focused on spring cleaning. You may have even gotten a bit of cleaning done over the long Easter weekend, eh?

A major part of spring cleaning is organizing…you know, so the clean STAYS clean! So when Ella from Moving Van contacted me and asked about a guest post on storage, I figured it was the perfect time to hear more! Here’s what she had to say:

While there are many different shapes and sizes of storage space, few are more economical and inclusive than a cubicle-type setup. So what does this mean exactly? Basically you will save money through using astorage space that is smaller yet contains lots of squares, or cubes. Any other shape is counterproductive as it won’t lend a way of sustaining neatness.

Storage - how to store excess bedroom items across compact cubicles2

Once you’ve designated the space, it’s then advisable to supply your own set of shelves. Specifically, these shelves should come in the form of compact cubicles without too much space in between them. These can be bought relatively cheap and locally at furniture stores.

Digital Kitchen Scale Review…and GIVEAWAY from TMart!

**PLEASE NOTE: While TMart.com DID provide me with this product to test at no cost, I was not in any way paid for my review. The following opinion is hereby my own.** 

One of my favorite kitchen tools when I was younger was my mom’s scale. I remember mom being on a diet a lot (HA! Sorry, mom!) and when she was she would use her scale to fix her portions. Her scale looked like this, except with a flat top:

Is that the one, mom? It’s close to it!

I always enjoyed trying to see how much I could put on the scale before it was too much to weigh. And I may or may not have learned of a few things that would NOT work on the scale…but that’s another story for another day!

Anyways, I’ve never had a scale in my own kitchen before, mainly because I was just not sure of the kind of scale I wanted to use! Did I want a neat vintage one? Did I want a modern digital one? Decisions, decisions…

Until TMart contacted me to do a giveaway, and one of the items on their list to review and give away was a kitchen scale.

Rodan & Fields Review…and GIVEAWAY!

**PLEASE NOTE: While Molly DeMarcellus DID provide me with this product to test at no cost, I was not in any way paid for my review. The following opinion is hereby my own.** 

Normally all of you lovely readers come here to the blog to see posts about organization, home, garden…and anything else “domestic”, right? Well, allow me to submit the fact that anything falling into the category of “self-care” is also essential to a happy domestic life! Don’t you agree? If YOU are healthy and happy and well-taken care of, then it certainly stands to reason that you will have more energy to organize, cook, clean, decorate and enjoy your life with your family!

Now that we’re all on the same page, I want to share with you something amazing that I’ve discovered: Rodan & Fields.

Not familiar with the name? How about Proactiv? A bit more familiar? (If you’re still having trouble, just think Adam Levine, he’s the spokesperson for Proactiv these days. And ladies, we all pay attention to Adam Levine when he comes across the screen, right? THOSE are the Proactiv commercials!)

Inspirational Easter Printables – FREE!

This past weekend was a very busy one – two rehearsals and two performances of our church’s Palm Sunday/Easter musical, “The Story”.

The-Story3

For those of you who may not know, my husband and I both sing in the choir at our church (we have about 80 Worship Arts Members, including choir, band, sound and video team) and were excited for “The Story”. It was originally a book by Max Lucado (one of my faves!) and was transformed into a musical journey through the Bible, with visuals like this one (CLICK HERE if you have a second and want to see one of the songs!) Since we’ve been practicing these songs since January, they’ve really made their way into my heart, not just my head, and lyrics are POWERFUL! So I thought I’d make some inspirational Easter printables for everyone from some of my favorite lyrics…for you to grab for FREE, of course! So here we go… WhoButYou Continue reading
