What Clutterbug are you? – Identify your Organizing Style- Ladybug

Blog
There are basically 5 different organizational styles, and in the next few days, I will post one different style a day. You may find that you are a combination of a few styles, but try to find the one that addresses your main organizing challenge in your home. Many people make the mistake of buying storage containers or organizing tools before they know exactly how they will use it to organize their belongings. Some things that work well for others may not work for you. Many people end up having unused or misused storage containers, which just add to the clutter. The first step is to identify your style and what tools will work best for you in your space. Today's style is:The Ladybug - This style can be summed…

What Clutterbug are you? Identify your Organizing Style- Butterfly

Blog
So, awhile back I had this big idea to start an organizing business that would help people identify their own unique organizing style and offer tools that would work best based on that style. Well, it's on the backburner until after my children are both in school full time, so this blog is sort of tiding me over in the meantime. That does mean however I can practice on all of you (which right now is no one, but I'm optimistic :)). I'm going to short hand this so you can quickly identify your organizing style and get some quick tips to help with your organizing issues... ready???Basically their are 5 different organizing styles. You are probably a mixture of a few different ones, but try to identify with the…

Banker Boxes- The perfect storage box for any budget

Banker Boxes- The perfect storage box for any budget

Blog
So a blog about Banker Boxes may seem incredibly boring (my husband would surely agree), but I'm excited about them and hopefully, when you are done reading this, you will be too! Banker Boxes have come a long way from the ugly brown ones used to store mountains of paperwork in offices around the world. They now come in fun colours and beautiful designs to match any decor. Before you start rolling your eyes, just hear me out. These wonderful storage tools are the perfect size for almost every shelving unit. Just try putting a Rubbermaid tote on a regular shelf, never going to happen. Banker Boxes are so light weight and durable they can hold a tonne of stuff and still be easily carried. They even have built in little handles!…

Move some toys outside!

Blog
Hello. My name is Cassandra and I am a kid-toy-aholic...First of all, I admit I just have way too many. Secondly, I can't stop myself from buying more and lastly...I have a really hard time parting with any old ones! The insanity is that my house is really tiny and I hate having kids toys visable in adult spaces (like the livingroom). This means I am constantly doing the toy dance and using creative toyboxes, closets, shelving and my wonderful toyroom to house the ever mounting piles of toys. That being said, I do purge... occasionally. Before gift giving holidays is a great time to go through your children's toys and get rid of broken ones, toys with missing pieces and those that your child just never plays with anymore.…

Tip of the Day – Spring has Sprung

Tip of the Day – Spring has Sprung

Blog
I'm geeked about the beautiful weather we have been having lately! I'm digging in the garden, wearing my spring coat and I have even dug out my sunglasses. It's offically spring! This is the time to put away that winter stuff!If you have a small house like me, storage is a huge issue, especially if you have kids. If you have a big house with a huge entrance way closet, I hate you, and don't bother reading this blog!This winter my closet has been especially bursting. Snowsuits, bulky coats, hats mittens... Sooooo glad it's over. I bought an inexpensive clothes rack from Walmart (under $30) and turned a small area in my downstairs storage area into off season coat and sweater storage. If this is not an option, I have…

Tip of the Day- Magazines

Blog
I watched this TLC show last night, "Hoarding- Buried Alive". I have no idea why stuff like that intrigues me so much, but it has the same effect that the show "How clean is you house" does. As soon as it was over I purged like a maniac! We all have our clutter weaknesses though... god knows I have a few... kids toys (guilt), bathroom products (might need them someday), home decor stuff (I paid a lot for those completely outdated items that I no longer even like) and of course magazines.. I love my magazines. Well, after watching people having to walk on piles of their junk I was motivated to purge a few of my precious magazines. I am ashamed to say it was actually VERY hard for…

Organizing Tip of the Day- Family Notebook

Blog
K. So this is my first ever written blog. Wish me luck!I am slowly moving from a life of crazy chaos to a life of serene organization. O.K., so maybe not, but I'm trying. First Step, get my home organized! I had heard about household management notebooks in organizing magazines and other places, but I never really thought it would be something that would work for my home. Kinda thought it was a bit over-the-top actually. That being said I started this video blog on youtube to help inspire me to get organized, and after quickly running out of stuff to blog about, I decided to make a binder....Aahhhhhh... I freakin love my binder... I use it EVERYDAY! It has tabs and those clear sheet protectors and that is about…
