HELP!! & a winner

Friends, I would love to write more posts about organizing. It's my passion and something that I do in my everyday life in all aspects of it. I beleive that an organized life is a stress free life and even though it takes a little time here and there, it saves you time and stress in the long run!

I would love it if you shared your issues or questions about organizing with me and I would love to answer them here! I have no problem if you want to be anonymous because I know clutter and disorganization can feel vulnerable to share (do that here: ASK AWAY!!!!) If you have more specific questions with a picture of a room problem etc, please email me at and I would be happy to write up a post with some ideas for help as well!

how He loves us, Oh,

How often do we sit in the Grace of Christ? As a Christian woman I struggle so much with perfectionism for my self. Am I doing this or that right. I think because I have Christ in me that everything I do should be perfect (which it could be if everything I did involved Christ and Him alone.)  Why do I burden myself with perfection when I know I am swimming in an ocean of grace that is freely offered to me.

 I wrote about REST here  last week and I think GRACE can be written in right along with it all. Do we fall into His arms that promise rest & grace? Do we let Grace overcome us so much that it's like we are sinking inside the sea of HIS perfection.

How do you let His Grace dwell in you?

organized: small bathroom

A challenge a lot of us face when we are starting out with our first home or apartment is storage. I received so many wonderful gifts from my wedding but don't have a lot of space to house it all. Here are some great tips for this issue in those small bathrooms!

1. Display bathroom items in cute baskets or shelves. It keeps it organized & cute but still accessible. 
2. Get an extra storage unit that you decorate on top to hold everything
3. Side Shelves: Put up extra shelves in an aesthetically pleasing way
4. Shelves above doors! Genius
5. Little baskets hanging and decorate with bath items
6. Extra shelves under the sink
7. Baskets!!!!

clutter solutions: baskets

I believe that we all don't the time to stay on top organization and it's okay to not have of a super clear, clean, no clutter home at all times. Baskets are my solution of this.

If you have guests coming over and need a quick clean up, take your basket, do a clean sweep of the house throwing all "junk" in it to go through later.

Don't always have time to hang up your clothes or put them away after you wash them? Don't throw them on the ground, put them in a basket! When the basket is full it forces you to go through it.

Don't know how to store blankets? magazines? books? Use a basket!

Why they work:

1. Combines decor and organization
2. They can show off your style while being functional at the same time
3. You can find basket after basket for under $5 at Goodwill or any thrift store
4. Quick clean up guaranteed
