Mercury Retrograde

  Want to see an impressive eye roll? Start talking to me about astrology. Look, I know Yoko Ono won’t get her hair cut unless the stars are aligned in her favor, and that is a valid opinion, but I do not share it. Not even for Yoko. Not long ago I heard someone on […]

DIY Dry Erase Board

This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and Office Depot, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #inspirestudents http://my-disclosur.es/OBsst Some women are crazy about shoes; I’m all about the school supplies.

Postcard From a Hoarder: Hanging Necklaces

Last week I posted this tip about getting knots out of necklaces, to which Maggie replied in the comments, “What I want is a way to store them without them getting all knotted together.” Good question, Maggie.

Organizing with Can Caddies

I had plans to do stuff this weekend but then a three-part, 12 hour Anne of Green Gables marathon came on TV. Well, there went my day. Since my butt was glued to the couch I made use of my time by sorting out some bins and boxes that only required partial attention. Because, I […]

10 Minute Marker Caddy

I was using permanent markers to work on a project over the weekend (more on that later). Over the course of the afternoon I got so fed up with hunting for markers in various drawers and old coffee cups (you know the ones), that I halted the project for ten minutes to create a marker […]
