How I Organize my Entryway Closet

Near the front door of our home, we have what is usually known here as a “coat closet.” However, since we live in south Louisiana (and always use the back door of our home anyways, never the front door), we do not need this closet for coats!  However, our home does have a lack of storage areas, so I’ve changed the use of this closet to what our family calls the “Gift closet.”  You may have seen pictures of the door of the closet here, when I discussed how I organize our gift wrap supplies, but I have never yet shown a picture of the inside of the closet.

My Super Simplified Weekly Cleaning Routine

Have you searched Pinterest for all the cute little weekly cleaning checklists? Or maybe you jumped on board with a program like Flylady?  I’ve been there, tried that.  You know what?   It didn’t quite fit in my real life.  I was either always cleaning instead of enjoying my family and downtime, or I felt lots of guilt whenever I couldn’t keep up with the “prescribed list.”  Life is too short!  I’ve finally found what works for me, at this particular phase of life.  Read More »

Dollar DIY Birthday Party Favors – Minnie Mouse and Knights

April is always a eventful month for our family with Easter, our son’s birthday, and our daughter’s birthday.  This year we combined their birthday parties, but we still let each child choose their theme.  While I did scale back on the amount of decorations I had this year, I still had theme-related party favors for our guests.  Since I purchased party favors for each child’s birthday party theme, I wanted to make sure I kept the cost low.  In the past, I’ve ordered from Oriental Trading, but the party was a little last-minute this year, so I had to find the items in my budget from our local stores.  We do have a few Dollar Tree stores in the area, so there’s always that option, but we ultimately found the favors we chose at Target.Read More »
