Forget which channel is which? Make your own customizable TV channel guide with our free printable and secure to your remote!

I love watching TV …. the more bad reality TV the better in my mind. Most of my binge watching is on Netflix or Amazon these days. Believe it or not, but we don’t have cable! Friends are shocked when they hear this because they know I love my bad TV shows ūüôā .

That being said, when I do turn on ‘regular TV’ I never remember which¬†channel is which. Scrolling through looking for the right channel can be so irritating, especially with¬†commercials.

We’ve all heard the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.¬†I think about this every time I’m scrolling frustrated trying to find the channel I’m looking for. I claim I’m going to write these down eventually. But then I find the channel I’m looking for and forget my problem ever existed! Sound familar?

Not only did it drive me crazy to not know what channel is what, I know it can be frustrating for guests visiting us. With our baby due date fast approaching, we’ve got lots of house guests coming in town to help (thanks goodness!). Not having to ask for the channels is just one of the ways that I try to make¬†hosting easier on everyone.

Here’s how I make my TV Channel Guide

Supplies

Instructions

The first thing you’ll want to do is write down all the channels you have. For those of you with cable, that’s likely LOTS of channels. Personally I only jotted down the ¬†channels I actually watched. It seems that most of us¬†watch a fraction of the channels that we have!

Here’s our¬†TV Channel Guide Template to download

This template is an editable word document so that you can add in your own channels. I created 4 different sizes, but you’re able to adjust any of the sizes on your own. I selected the size that fit the back of my TV remote. Once I created the guide, I simply taped it to the back of the remote.

If there’s not enough room to list all your TV channels on any of the templates, adjust the length¬†by clicking on the bottom of the rectangle to select it (you’ll see the circles appear). Drag the bottom middle circle down to the length that you want.

Now type out all your channels, print on thick card stock paper and cut out.

Then cut two piece of contact paper slightly larger than your TV channel guide cutout.

Affix one sheet of contact paper on back side of the guide and one on the top. Using a scissor, cut the excess contact paper around the sides. While covering with contact paper isn’t required, it makes the guide more durable.

For quick access, tape the TV channel guide to the back of your remote.

And yes, these are really ALL the TV channels that we have. Thank goodness for Netflix and Amazon Prime!

How to organize your clothes and closet by seasons to make swapping out your wardrobe so easy. Your closet has never looked better!

I swoon over the mega closets that I see on TV. You know the ones that could double as a studio apartment? Yes, I love LOOKING at these because I definitely do not have one! Granted, I do have a walk in closet (which is shared with Joe), but there’s not enough space to have all 4 seasons of clothes easily reachable. So I’ve learned to get a little creative with storage solutions and slowly learning the art of downsizing!

While some may find this task …. well a task, I look forward to it. Even more than that. I ENJOY it. Yes, call me crazy, but pulling out my upcoming season of clothes and doing a refresh of my closet 4 times a year is my form of relaxation. My perfect ‘me time’. Obviously, any chance to organize something in our home brings me joy, but it’s also so fun to swap out my wardrobe with clothes that FEEL new (aka – haven’t been worn for several months). It’s my zero cost shopping spree.

When I was doing my weekly shopping at Kroger this past weekend, I grabbed the new Style Watch while at checkout which got me excited for spring clothing season. Now¬†I’ll never be known for my style, but I do like a new wardrobe refresh as much as the next and some fun inspiration.

How to organize your clothes and closet by seasons to make swapping out your wardrobe so easy. Your closet has never looked better!

I turn on some music, grab a glass of wine and a couple magazines for inspiration for the next couple hours of clothing and organization! Now how could that sound like a chore?

The very first thing I do is pull out all my current wardrobe out of the closet. Some of my current season clothing can actually be worn all year round, such as jeans and a couple sweaters. Seattle is known for their rain, but NOT extreme temperatures! I take those pieces and put them back in the closet.

How to organize your clothes and closet by seasons to make swapping out your wardrobe so easy. Your closet has never looked better!

I use this organization session as an opportunity to sort through and get rid of any current season clothes that I haven’t worn in the last couple months. No, I don’t LOVE getting rid of things, but I follow a simple system to sort through items in any room. By creating baskets to donate, fix, sell, or hold, I’m able to get rid of pieces that I just don’t wear. (My ‘hold’ basket¬†is for clothing that I’m just not ready to get rid of but I know I should! I hold on to these until the next season to make a final decision).

When evaluating each piece, I ask myself the following:

  • Have I worn this recently?
  • Will I wear it soon?
  • Do you have similar pieces taking up valuable space?
  • Does it fit?
  • Is the piece stretched, stained, damaged, or torn?

 

I follow the same process to review each piece of upcoming season clothing to decide if any need to go in the donate, fix, sell or hold baskets. Once I’ve hopefully purged a couple pieces (???), I sort all the clothes based on type. Casual t-shirts, dressy shirts, shorts, skirts, dresses, pants, etc.¬†This is also a good opportunity to find a couple more pieces to purge.

For example, you can see I’m apparently a big fan of red: 4 red dresses and 4 red sweaters!

Don’t forget about shoes, jewelry, purses and scarves.

Our closet came with lots of built in wire shelving. I do love the shelving options, but it does take away from hanging space. After some time getting used to this set up, I found that I actually prefer the shelving when used with large canvas baskets. One basket for each category of clothing ….

made easier with these printable labels.

When placing the upcoming season clothing back in to my closet, I follow a couple tips to make the most use out of my side of the closet:

  • Pants are always placed on multi pant hangers to take up less room. I have one for jeans and one for dress pants.
  • Clothing is organized by type (pants, t-shirts, dresses, etc).
  • While it’s the trend to put shoes in clear containers with PHOTOS on the front, for me it’s more effort than it’s worth. I’m able to see through the clear containers easily without a photo on the front. Plus I don’t have to swap out the photo when I swap out my seasonal shoes!
  • Clothing that is used more frequently should be the EASIEST to reach. For me that’s t-shirts, lettings and sweatshirts. Yes, working from home has its benefits! My dresses are pretty hard to reach ūüôā .
  • Bulkier items, such as sweaters, go on the hanging shelf, while slimmer pieces such as t-shirts and skirts are either hung up or go in baskets.
  • Purses go in basket or on the shelves to extend their life, instead of hanging on hooks.

While I like to find a system that works (forever),¬†these quarterly clothing swap sessions are a good opportunity to evaluate what’s working and what’s not.¬†I decided that a foldable stool would be a great addition to the closet to reach the upper shelves. I try to use vertical space as much as possible!

After moving in to our townhouse a couple years ago, we‚Äôve racked up a good amount of paint cans and lots of painting! Labeling these with more complete information (including date purchased and room used in) found it’s way to the bottom of a very long to do list.

Yes, this seemed like a back-burner project for the longest time. That was until I needed to touch up the paint in several rooms we had painted. Uh oh. For the life of me, I couldn’t remember which paint went with which room (apparently I use LOTS of different shades of gray paint!) and I was pretty sure I was missing a couple paint cans as well. Thank goodness my local Benjamin Moore store kept a file of my past purchases.

So no time like the present to get these paint cans organized with better labels.

I know what some of you are thinking …. typically when you purchase a new can of paint, it’s already labeled: either at the top of the can, if the store is mixing the paint for you, or on the side if it‚Äôs an off the shelf pre-made color. But not typically both. For this labeling project, I chose to stick labels on both sides. The main reason for this is that I’m admittedly a messy painter and paint often drips on the side of the can, not only causing a mess, but also covering the original label. So better safe than sorry with two labels, right?

I created these labels on 8 1/2 by 11 inch paper and printed on stickered white paper. In the template, you’ll find labels for the tops of your 1¬†gallon cans, 1 quart cans, and 1 pint cans as well as universal labels for the sides of all these cans.

Grab the printable paint can template that I put together.

To make these super easy to adhere, print them out with my stickered white paper. I used my paper cutting tools to cut out the individual labels, but a simple scissor will also do the job just fine!

Each label has space to fill out the following:

  • Brand
  • Paint color
  • Date purchased
  • Room
  • Paint finish (matte, semi-gloss, etc)
  • Notes
  • Small circle to make a paint mark for quick visual color reference

Dab a little paint in the circle for a quick visual color reference. I could barely see this color paint … I guess it literally is just a gray tint!

Although I claim to be finished painting rooms in our home (which definitely makes Joe happy), I printed off a couple extra labels just IN CASE I find another room to paint in the future. I store all any extra labels in plastic pouches for easy use.

Grab the printable paint can template!

Here’s a quick list of the supplies needed for this project:

Make these fun DIY wine tag organizers to keep your wine stash organized. You'll now be able to quickly find the wine you're looking for!

I was so excited when Joe came to me asking organizing advice. Then I found out what he needed help with. Wine. Yes, I love to drink wine, but I have NO idea how to organize it. By year, type, vineyard, color?? As the wine connoisseur in our family (not that there was much competition), fortunately Joe figured out how to sort the wine in the wine racks. But then he came asking for wine tags, essentially labels for each wine bottle. THAT I can do. I was born to make labels. And these are pretty easy. Here’s how:

Supplies

Instructions

Print out the Printable Label sheet and using either scissors or your paper cutter, cut out each wine tag. Then cut out the circle in the middle with either scissors or a 1 1/2 inch hole punch.

Once your tags are made (easy right?), you’ll need to label them.¬†There’s the Lindsay Method and the Joe method.

Lindsay’s Method:

Top of tag = price

Bottom of tag = type of wine

Pen color = type of wine (red for reds, orange and yellows for whites, pinks for rose, silver for champagnes)

Joe’s Method:

Alright, for those of you with a little bit more sophisticated in your wine collection skills, here’s Joe’s version of labeling:

Top of tag = year (This could either be the year it was made OR the year you want to drink it. Just decide which method you’ll use and stay consistent with all bottles)

Bottom of tag = Vineyard & Type

Pen color = Any ūüôā

Keep all your paperwork in 3 ring binders organized AND pretty! Step by step tutorial to make decorative 3 ring binder labels.

Every couple of months I decide to go completely ‘paperless’. I spend hours uploading all my documents to the latest and greatest in online technology. Luckily some of my systems have worked well for me. Yet no matter how hard I try I can never seem to remove paper from my home. So instead of trying to fight it, I’ve learned to embrace it. Enter PAPER ORGANIZATION SERIES. Each week, I’ll be tackling a different area of paper clutter around my home. This week you’ll need to pull out your three ring binders because we’re working on some pretty binder labels for all your 3 ring binders!

Now you may be thinking …. 3 ring binders? Am I back in high school? As much as I wish I was back to the carefree days of my teens, I don’t miss the¬†binder filled homework! Those binders have now been replaced with important home owner documents, coupons, and wedding planning. Three ring binders are an easy to find and label paper storage solution. Perfect for all those documents that you can’t throw away!

At our house I have 4 different binders: warranties/home owner documents, couponing, taxes, & current projects (which is really a catch all for a lot of stuff ūüôā ).

Supplies

The first step is to cut your decorative scrapbook paper to fit the size of the¬†clear side label pocket of the binder. I always cut the paper slightly smaller than the clear side pocket opener, because I HATE trying to push the paper through the opening.¬†Here’s my rule of thumb measurements to cut your paper:

2 inch wide 3 Ring Binder =2 inches wide & 11 inches tall, so cut your paper to 1 1/2 inches wide & 10 1/2 inches tall 

3 inch wide 3 Ring Binder =  3 inches wide & 11 inches tall, so cut your paper to 2 1/2 inches wide & 10 1/2 inches tall 

Keep all your paperwork in 3 ring binders organized AND pretty! Step by step tutorial to make decorative 3 ring binder labels.

Now you’re ready to type the wording of each label. Instead of buying lettered stickers, I¬†opted to print out the letters to save a little money. I love the look of the black wide font on top of my colorful scrapbook paper. I typed out my label wording for each binder with the largest font that would fit my cut scrapbook paper. This took a little trial and error. I printed the labels with different size fonts and measuring it up to the scrapbook paper. ¬†For my 2 inch binders, 120 size Segoe UI Black font was my best option.¬†Printing on thick card stock as opposed to regular printer paper¬†gives the illusion that the letters actually ARE stickers!

Once printed, I then cut out each letter using my scissors. TIP: Using a more plain font makes cutting out the letters MUCH easier, as opposed to a more cursive style font.

Using either regular scotch tape or scrapbooking tape I put a little tape on the back of each letter before pressing it onto the scrapbooking paper. TIP: line up the letters on top of the scrapbook paper WITHOUT tape first to make sure they’re spaced out evenly before applying¬†tape.

Slowly push your label inside the pocket. I like to read the label from bottom to top so I put my label in the pocket accordingly. TIP: Open up your binder to allow more room inside the clear side pocket before inserting your label.

Keep all your paperwork in 3 ring binders organized AND pretty! Step by step tutorial to make decorative 3 ring binder labels.

Now when you’re organizing all your papers, you’ll have something pretty to look at!

I’ll see you NEXT week more tips on organizing your paper!

Laundry always seems to be the most dreaded chore in most households. It used to be with us. I went through system after system trying to ‘prefect’ how to do laundry quickly & efficiently. Finally I’ve learned the perfect laundry system ….. have someone else do it for you. Not sure about you, but that likely won’t be happening in our household any time soon.¬†Instead,¬†here’s¬†the tricks I’ve learned along the way!

Are you drowning in laundry? Make these simple & easy changes to your process for an easier and more manageable laundry duty!

Prep

CLEAN WASHING MACHINE:¬†Probably¬†not on the top of everyone’s list, but you should really make sure your washing machine is actually CLEAN. Yes, dirt and grime can build up even in your washing machine. Every 3 months or so I clean ours out simply by throwing in a load of old towels with 1/4 cup baking soda in a hot cycle and add 3/4 cup vinegar down the dispenser. Cleaner washing machine = cleaner clothes!

SORT BY COLOR:¬†Keeping laundry sorted throughout the week¬†makes it much MUCH easier¬†on laundry day. We keep two bins in our laundry room “colors” & “whites”. On laundry day¬†all I have to do is see if the bins¬†are full to determine if we need to do a load. (Each bin holds roughly one load of laundry.) No more taking up the entire hallway floor to sort out all our laundry before washing!

PRE-TREAT STAINS:¬†As I’m putting my dirty laundry in the correct bin, I’ll also pre-treat any stubborn stains right then and there. Always loving when a product can do double duty, Wisk Deep Clean¬ģ¬†detergent can also be used to pre-treat tough stains. I seem to ALWAYS forget to pre-treat when I’m about to do laundry. This method insures my tough stains are getting extra attention.

Are you drowning in laundry? Make these simple & easy changes to your process for an easier and more manageable laundry duty! Wash

EMPTY POCKETS: When I¬†put each piece of dirty laundry in the¬†washer, I make sure that all¬†pockets are empty. Don’t assume that it’s only for jeans. Hoodies, jackets, anything with a pocket COULD have something¬†inside! I keep a small jar on top of my washer for “pocket surprises”. Having a jar in plain sight as I’m loading the washer helps me remember to check the pockets. Otherwise I’d likely forget! Nothings more annoying than taking a load out of the washer to find out a tissue was left in one of the pockets!

Are you drowning in laundry? Make these simple & easy changes to your process for an easier and more manageable laundry duty! TOUGH STAINS:¬†Since moving out to the west coast, Joe & I have been picking up cycling. When I say “Joe & I” I really mean Joe. I’m more of the causal ride type of girl ūüôā . While the sport is great, it definitely causes some DIRTY workout clothes. I used to only be concerned with the stains that I could see. Yet, after getting a whiff of our dirty cycling clothes in the hamper one day my mentality changed forever.¬†The formula of Wisk Deep Clean¬ģ actually contains a blend of Micro-Cleaners that attack hidden body oils & sweat that can get trapped in the fibers of your clothes. What does that mean for us? Wisk can get ALL the dirt out in one wash! I stocked up on a couple of these over at Fred Meyer!

Are you drowning in laundry? Make these simple & easy changes to your process for an easier and more manageable laundry duty!

Dry

DON‚ÄôT LET STAINS DRY:¬†If you’ve got a piece of laundry with a pesky stain, make sure to double check it when you take it out of the washer before drying. If the stain is still there, pre-treat with Wisk Deep Clean¬ģ and wash again before it dries¬†to prevent the stain from becoming permanent.

PREVENT¬†OVER-DRYING: Somebody in our house might have accidentally shrunk a couple of Joe’s work shirts. I’m sure whoever did that feels absolutely awful and was only trying to help get the laundry done. Yep, Joe’s never letting me live this one down. Over-drying your clothes can definitely make some fabrics shrink. To prevent it, check on your clothes as soon as the dryer cycle ends and hang them up¬†once they feel “mostly dry”.

Are you drowning in laundry? Make these simple & easy changes to your process for an easier and more manageable laundry duty!

May your laundry be completed as quick and efficient as possible!

As more and more of our lives is online, Facebook, Instagram, even blogging ūüôā , there’s something I LOVE about mailing written cards for special occasions. To make writing a card just as easy as say sending a text, I put together a¬†greeting card organizer sorted¬†by month with my portable Epson portable Label Maker, which includes an iphone app!¬†No more looking through my calendar to see if a friend’s birthday or special holiday is coming up. Each month I simply look for all the cards I’ve stored under that month’s label to fill out and send to my friends & family!

Make your own adorable greeting card organizer with your portable Epson label maker with iphone app! Sort your cards by month for easy access!

Before you get started creating your greeting card organizer, make a list of your friends & families’ birthdays. Whether this means pulling out your contact book, pulling up facebook or even sending a couple emails, make a full list of everyone’s birthdays who should receive a card. Next make a list of all the holidays that you’ll want cards for (Mothers Day, Fathers Day, Easter, graduations, etc.) AND¬†who should receive those cards. I skip Christmas for this project, as we make special Christmas cards each year. Your finished product should be a master list of all the cards you’ll need for the year organized by person & month.

Now let’s create your organizer!

Supplies

  • Thick card stock in your favorite colors
  • Epson portable LW-600P Label Maker
  • Dicut tool in your favorite shape
  • Tape (I used a roll of scrap-booking tape, but you could even use scotch tape!)
  • A cute shoe box (I found mine at Joann’s)

Make your own adorable greeting card organizer with your portable Epson label maker with iphone app! Sort your cards by month for easy access!

Instructions:

Measure the width and height of your box so that you can¬†trim your card stock accordingly. My shoe box was¬†mine was 10 x 7 x 4, so my card stock sheets were a LITTLE less than 7×4 inches. I chose light but bright colored card stock so that my labels would really stick out!

Using my dicut, I cut out the labels that would be placed on top of my cardstock.

Now the fun part. I downloaded the Epson ilabel app that, once downloaded, automatically synced with my Epson Label Maker without having to register or sign up (just turn on bluetooth).

Make your own adorable greeting card organizer with your portable Epson label maker with iphone app! Sort your cards by month for easy access!

Using the Epson clear labels, all I simply¬†typed out the label on my phone, choose the font¬†& size, and hit the green printer button! No more running to my printer to make a label, as my battery operated¬†Epson Label Maker comes with me everywhere, as does my iphone ūüôā .

Make your own adorable greeting card organizer with your portable Epson label maker with iphone app! Sort your cards by month for easy access!

I attached my labels to the top half of each of my dicuts.

Make your own adorable greeting card organizer with your portable Epson label maker with iphone app! Sort your cards by month for easy access!

After attaching tape to the bottom half of the card stock label, I taped my label to the middle of my card stock sheets.¬†In effort to make it even, I chose not to eyeball ‘the middle’. Instead I measured out the half the width (for me it was 3 1/2 inches) and made a small mark. Don’t worry the mark won’t be visible as you’re putting your label right over it!

Make your own adorable greeting card organizer with your portable Epson label maker with iphone app! Sort your cards by month for easy access!

This made a huge difference and ensured all the labels were even right in the middle of the card stock!

Make your own adorable greeting card organizer with your portable Epson label maker with iphone app! Sort your cards by month for easy access!

Now all I had to do was file my cards under the appropriate month! I also placed a post-it on each card with the recipients name and date to help when I pull out the cards for that month. I store stamps & a pen in the back of my shoe box.

Make your own adorable greeting card organizer with your portable Epson label maker with iphone app! Sort your cards by month for easy access!

Never again will I have to resort to texting “happy birthday”!

Thank you Font Bundles for sponsoring this post!

I’ve been in search of matching containers for our various laundry detergents for years now. Yes, you read that right. It’s been on my mind for years. I like the idea of our laundry room looking as clean and clutter free¬†as possible, but couldn’t find containers that would work. (untapped market???) Throwing everything in a basket and calling it a day wasn’t satisfying my obsessive¬†desire for a cohesive look.

Easy and affordable way to organize your laundry room with labels for each of your cleaners. Add a little personality with some fun fonts!

When grocery shopping last week I realized that these fabric softener containers were exactly what I was looking for. They fit nicely in my wooden basket & once I removed the labels, the clean white color would create the clean aesthetic I wanted. As I was checking out, the cashier asked me if there was a big sale on fabric softener. I had to hold back every urge to not explain this brilliant idea. Realizing that I could appear to be completely nuts, I told her I was just stocking up.

I dumped all the fabric softener in to a large empty detergent container (to use at a later time) and rinsed each of them out. To remove the label, I just needed gently rip with a knife. I also grabbed an extra spray bottle that I had on hand to use as my new spot cleaner container.

Next I needed to make my labels. This was the fun part! Instead of just selecting one of the standard fonts in Microsoft word, I searched through over 70 creative and fun fonts provided by Font Bundles through their Auction & Script packages.

I’ve never installed fonts onto my computer before, installing Font Bundles was SO easy. Actually I wouldn’t even call it installation …. more like¬†click install and go to whichever Microsoft application¬†you’re using to¬†select from the¬†font drop down.

Fast forward 40 minutes later I’ve finally narrowed down to my six favorite fonts below ūüôā . The fonts are all really unique so it was hard ¬†to pick just one.

I opted for Greatpark, the top middle one. Using a sheet of my Avery 5160 template labels, I typed out wording for each of the cleaners I would be labeling. I centered each and increased the font size to the largest size that would fit, roughly size 50 (Fabric Softener was 32).

All I had to do was print and attach the labels to the containers. Then fill each container with the appropriate cleaner.

Way way WAY more organized, if I say so myself ūüôā .

I loved this project because after years of searching for a better container, I simply used what was right in front of me (I also totally hated¬†that I didn’t think of this sooner). Using a more creative font made these pop a lot more¬†in the laundry room.

I had so much fun looking through these fonts that I ended up redoing my enter website with the new fonts¬†=¬†a weekend of me on the couch watching Netflix with¬†my computer! This was on the to-do list for a while now, but from what I had researched buying fonts is annoyingly confusing (licensing rules, yearly renewals, super high costs, etc). So I really appreciated¬†Font Bundles unique concept of making this really straightforward, easy and affordable¬†ūüôā .

Below are a couple snippets of my redesigned site with Font Bundles fonts (I used Haus & Seilla Script):

Facebook & Twitter definitely weren’t left out either. I updated profile pics on both to match the fonts.

Font Bundles has a really good deal going on right now for both of their font packages …. Auction¬†& Script. Personally I liked having these packages to choose my fonts form as opposed to buying individual fonts. It’s a way better deal, plus I was able to compare & contrast various fonts easily (which I did for hours!!!).

Off to label the rest of my home …. looking at you sock drawer. Kidding. Kind of.
