Tuesday Tip

Over at my other blog Pineapple Hill Designs,
I usually post a TIP on Tuesdays. The start of the new school year is just around the corner.  Usually along with those preparations I feel the need to get organized.
I thought I'd share my favorite tips on the subject over here:

New Year-Fresh Start

Don't you just love the beginning of the new year.
The simple thought of a New Beginning and a Fresh Start is so rejuvenating. It's a great time to get into a Spring Cleaning mode with habits, attitudes and of course the home and office. January is a great time to organize your pantry, closets and cabinets. Shelters are always in big need in the winter months. The public schools and pre-schools can usually use donations for art classes, etc.
I love using baskets and containers to keep things in order.
My daughter just got a label maker for Christmas and told me she doesn't know what she did before she had it. 
Check out these free labels from Style Guide.
They're perfect for baking goods and come in three pretty colors!

Pretty in pink, this precious trio of flowerpots with matching tray is adorable for a little girl's nursery. A witty way to hold cotton balls, Q-tips and little knick knacks! Dressing your baby and locating clothes as you need them can be made easier. Start with an organizing system based on interchangeable modular units such as boxes, baskets, and sacks.

I love the jars stuck under the shelf...I would never have thought of that! I've been looking at lots of similar pictures in magazines lately and it's really making me want to convert the play room/guest room into more of an office/homework area. Definitely as the kids get older!
