After realizing that my fantasy of having Real Housewives Yolanda Foster’s fridge was never going to happen, I decided that mine needed a serious cleaning and reorganization. My current situation was a fridge with no extra room, lots of expired food, and all the wrong containers. We even had an empty 6 pack beer holder in the fridge while the individual cans were scattered throughout. So here’s my way to organize a refrigerator …. Yolanda style. I’m pretty…

Anytime I bring a homemade food item over to a party, I panic that no one is going to eat it. In fact, I’m typically the one having 5 servings of my dish just to make it appear popular (and edible). On the contrary, one of my best friends Alison is a not only a natural host but an amazing cook as well. She makes it all appear effortless as she’s opening her oven pulling…

I love the idea of adding design with function since I try to keep to a more minimal decor style. That’s why having decorative diy coasters is right up my alley. And a DIY? Well that’s something I couldn’t resist. I found these coasters at Goodwill (for $2!!), although you could start from scratch using cork board or white bath tiles.

Each day when I get home from work I stand outside our front door trying at least three keys before I find the one that opens my front door. I find it a personal victory when I guess it right the first try. As I’m navigating through my key chain I promise myself I’m going to find a solution to this frustration. Then the second I finally get through the front door my frustration is forgotten, well for 24…

My husband asked me if I was running out of things to organize when he saw this project. First, did he really think I was going to run out of things to organize? But in all seriousness, I hate the way cords tend to get in the way. This quick and easy Fast Fix Friday simply requires a ‘cordy’ appliance and velcro! (I used this one, which comes in white OR black and can be…
