Spring Into Organization 2012: Laundry Room

After reading and admiring so many awesome laundry room posts I had to jump in and organize my laundry room. Here are some before pictures. Yes, there is dirty laundry on the floor and clean laundry hanging up. We are human! Our house was built in 1980 and surprisingly they designed the house with some features we see in houses today like the laundry room on the second floor and 5 walk-in closets. Isn't that unheard of for that year? Be jealous! This house has lots of storage which is a great! I'm so fortunate! However, it can be a bad thing. Good thing because I can get organized, but it has been a bad thing because I haven't the rooms and closets are messy and disorganized. Now it is…

Spring Into Organization 2012: Cleaning Up Our Message Board

Wow!  This is what our message center looks like?  I had to do something about this. After having twins last year, my life honestly has been insane!   It has been a huge adjustment not only on me but my daughter (Doodle) too because I went from being an outside the home working Mom to staying at home full-time.    Organization 2012 is now my mission. Over a week ago I came across Laura from Orgjunkie.org's post about Spring Into Organization.  I've become addicted looking at some of these posts.  I've already started on organizing my laundry room,  my family room desk, and changing table. The best part being some of the ideas are so simple you can do it in an hour or a couple hours!  Plus, some of them like…

Organization 2012

Organization 2012 My husband and I were talking about goals that we have for ourselves this year.  Our kids are young so just having a good time while they are little is important to us.    This means we need to be better about organization. Organization is constant with my 3 year old. Don't forget I have identical twin boys that are starting to crawl.  Babyproofing is never ending!   I've learned that if one system doesn't work right now, there will be another system that does work.  I'm still trying to figure out the right methods to get laundry done but I will find it!   I'll be talking about that too. This month I wanted to talk about kids crafts.   I love crafts.  We have everything to do crafts…

Day #3-5 – 30 Day Cleaning Challenge

Day #3-5 I’m going to challenge myself by following the 31 Day Cleaning Challenge with Money Saving Mom.     She is using the chart from Fresh and Organized. Day 3: Surface clean the bedrooms Day 4: Surface clean other rooms Day 5: Surface clean kitchen or living room/family room This is hard!   My kids and I worked hard on the bedrooms and only got to 2 of them.  It was a lot of hard work for 2 hours with 3 small kids.  I got pretty exhausted and it did cause me to fall behind on my other chores like dishes.   Here is the before of my Doodle's room. Here is the before of the boys' room. Yesterday we had outside activities so I fell behind again on working on the  "other"…

Update to Redberrydeals!

Hi to all of my readers. Welcome to 2013! I have mentioned this in previous posts this last year and I thought I would get into more detail. 2012 was a great year for us. Watching our kids grow has been so rewarding. My husband and I have decided to create a company. I'm very excited. It will include several components to it including Redberrydeals and my passion for sewing and embroidery. I'm in the process of following the proper business creation procedures. I've been so busy with it that I've neglected adding the Shoppers Matchups each week. The time that took to prepare and post is more time then I have right now.   I will no longer add those matchups. I've decided to limit my posts to Redberrydeals this…

Harbor Freight Finds!

Have you ever been to Harbor Freight?   I love Harbor Freight.  Of course 99% of the items are made in China.  It is so hard to find anything these days that isn't made in China.   It is a great place to find inexpensive tools.   I find so many hand tools that I can use for organization, and crafts. At this particular trip, I went in and got this very nice measuring tape for FREE with the store coupon!  (I believe a purchase was necessary.)  I also got a pack of my favorite 22 pack clamp set for $1.99.  They were on sale.  These clamps are fantastic to use all over the house.  I use them as chip clips, veggie clips, clothing clips, and so much more.  Recently, my daughter…

Dollar Tree: $1 Finds for Housekeeping and All Made in the USA!

This week I ventured out with all 3 kids to the Dollar Tree, PetSmart and then Aldi for some grocery shopping.  The kids were wonderful!  I was hoping to do everything before lunch time but it was cutting it close.  I had to take a break for snacks and then again on our way home before we did lunch.    Next time, I promise myself we will leave earlier.  I'm a little fearful when the twins start walking because I'm sure they won't want to stay in the stroller. I went to Dollar Tree to check out some cleaning, organizational products, and pick up some yard sale supplies.  I was excited to find that they had their version of Oxyclean, a liquid Dishwasher soap and a black cleaning bucket.  The best…
