140 brilliant organizing solutions


I mentioned the other day that my calendar year is August to August.  And so, with the start of a new school year, I have this overwhelming urge to feather my nest, and get everything in order.  Back to School is to me what the New Year is to most: a time to get organized.

My home is pretty organized, but I still have some work to do.


I want to add some finishing details to my kitchen organization.

I could use a plethora of baskets:  for the command center,  for closets,  for bathrooms.

I never did put the finishing details on my garage organization.

And I continue to save jars and cans, just in case.   Speaking of jars, aren’t these DIY “pharmacy jars” from 2IY adorable?

I could definitely put these to good use!

If I have any hopes of getting things done, I might need to follow the 3 principles that I learned from my friend, Mark:

Bear down. Focus.  And if those don’t work, pull your head out of your a$$, and get it done.

I think if I work room by room, that 3rd principle won’t be necessary. ;)

And I have plenty of inspiration to keep me motivated.  You can find the pharmacy jars and so many other brilliant organizing solutions on my “Organize It!” clipboard at Hometalk,

 I’m adding a lazy susan to my shopping list!

I truly believe that a beautiful home starts with organization.   { tweet it!}   And these ideas have motivated me to finish what I’ve started.

See you in class,
