Five On Friday | Five Favorite Organizing Tools

I have a few favorite things when it comes to organizing.  Today I'm going to share five of them with you.  If you have ever worked with me you can probably name a few because you're probably using them in your house.   It will also come as no surprise to my friends and clients that you can find everything I suggest at Target.  That's not to say that you can't buy these things at other stores...I just may or may not have a bit of an obsession with Target.  In fact,  I ...continue reading

Medicine In The Closet

I keep our medicine in the closet.  Three reasons.  One: It is supposed to be kept in a room temperature spot, away from humidity....ie not in the bathroom.  Two: I have a lock on this closet door that none of my children can open...yet.  Three: It's where I have the space.  I keep all the meds on this lazy suzan which is great because I can spin it and find what I need.  It is also great in case anything happens to leak...it doesn't get all over my shelf.  This is ...continue reading
