While I refuse to part with these organizing staples, there are definitely more creative (and decorative) ways to increase storage in a room.  Here’s 5 of my favorite ideas.

While I want to be an ‘all digital’ gal, I’m about 50/50 on utilizing paper vs electronic documents. There’s just some things that seem to be a little easier to store in a hard copy paper format. One of those things is all the warranties and manuals we have from our bigger household items. Fortunately, I rarely need these.

This past fall, I hosted my first baby shower for a good friend, which was a really fun process (not only because during the planning phase I found out that I was pregnant myself).

I have a love hate relationship with white wire shelving. It’s affordable, readily available, adjustable and pretty nice looking. I should probably just resort to loving it because it’s in every one of our closets. But it can be so difficult to use. Crumbs fall, spills are messy, it’s difficult to clean and many items won’t stand straight on top of them. Thank goodness the fix is super simple and affordable! Foam board was my…
