Managing Toy Organization Without a Playroom – The Struggle Is Real

Wrangling Toys in the Living Room-2

This post is sponsored by Better Homes and Gardens at Walmart. Taming the toy clutter when you have a three year old is no joke. I've been wondering if toy organization was even a real thing. I remember when P was first born and people would tell me "oh, babies don't need anything except for milk and diapers." Sure that's true - but if you want to survive and maybe even get a little sleep you … [Read more...]

IKEA furniture: Customizing a Kitchen Cart

A few years ago, we bought a kitchen cart and I loved having the extra storage space but I hated how plain it was.

Bathroom Storage Shelves

At the beginning of each year I find myself cleaning, purging, organizing. I'm sure I'm not alone in this. The new year is a fresh start for all of those things.

That way you would know what to expect when you arrive at your next duty station. No such luck. When we moved here, we took our house site unseen. Sometimes you have to do that if you want a place to live right away. And … [Read more...]
