5 Simple Projects to Get Organized

Whether you have kids heading back to school or not; the end of summer and early fall is a good time to get a few things organized. Especially since the busy holiday season will be here before we know it.


#1 I love this stylish and handy little notebook. Chelsea made it for her daughter; but I’d be happy to have one myself. The pocket would be great for so many things {paint samples, shopping lists, coupons, business cards, etc.}.

#2 Susan made this handy library book shelf for her entryway from a wooden crate. A hanging crate like this would also be great for incoming mail and other documents.

#3 If you’ve visited the Etsy shop, you know that I’m a fan of watercolor. So this shopping tote from Creative Cain Cabin {or a whatever-you-need-it-to-be-tote!} with watercolor looks like a fun, weekend project.

#4 Sort through everything that is hanging on your fridge — and then create some washi-tape magnets to make that paper storage a bit prettier!

#5 If you are overwhelmed by all of the artwork, memory and paper storage from school, set up this handy system.

Your welcome! Thanks for stopping by! I do still work as an engineer; but it is from home -- part time and contracted... so the blog is my hobby, for now anyway :)

Do you still work as an engineer? Or are you a full-time blogger?
