Help your kids be creative, develop their skills, and maybe save some boredom by setting up an art station for them at home. If you have young kids at home, you probably know how important it is to have ‘activities at the ready’ for them to do at home. This will not only help cut out some boredom (supposedly) but it will also help them
Take some time to organize your pantry and see what a difference it will make in the way you cook and the way you eat. Imagine this. You open a pantry door to find bags of food piled up on top of each other, food lost in the piles that you had to look for and probably did not even find, re-buying the foods you
I’ve been organizing our cupboards and pantry because it really makes a difference in the way we eat when they are organized. It also helps us save money by knowing what is in our pantry rather than re-purchasing things that we have hidden under piles of disorganized stuff in the pantry or hidden in the back of our cupboards and that have long been forgotten. My
I shared our organized shoes in our entryway a few days ago which was the first part of this post. Today I am sharing the rest of the entryway with our winter gears. Having our entryway organized has made a huge difference in our home already. Our entryway was in a state of chaos and was not a joyful place to look at. Maybe it
Sometimes organizing an area of the home presents itself in the simplest form though it may have taken quite some time to figure that out. Something out of the ordinary. Such is the case of our organized shoes and winter boot wear in our entryway. I mentioned in an earlier post a few weeks ago about some areas in our home that needed organizing.
I’ve got a tiny spot that I have been working on as a command center. It is already the landing spot for all things mail, kids art, papers to sign, etc. I’d like to think that it’s already acting as a command center – it just needs some organizing. It is a heavily trafficked area from the mudroom into the kitchen and from the hallway
I’ve been consistently trying to find ways to cut clutter and bring simplicity at home. When I use the phrase ‘simplicity at home’, I’m not referring to a boring home that is not warm and welcoming. Neither I’m I referring to a home that has been stripped off all its necessary items that make it a home. Too many times ‘simplicity at home’ can come
I’m one of those who tends to thrive in organized spaces. When spaces are chaotic it’s hard to find and accomplish anything in them. I find myself walking around in circles not knowing what task to tackle first. As an example, if I get behind on the dishes, even making breakfast seems like trying to get over some great hurdle of pots and pans and dirty dishes.
Creating a menu board is such an great way to help make meal preparation easier and to help family members know what’s for mealtime. I am loving this simple idea for a menu board in this corner of the kitchen. In our previous home, sometimes I kept our menu written on a regular smaller piece of chalkboard. Originally, I did it just to help me keep track of
