Well we are knee-deep in February, how are those New Year’s resolutions holding up? Yeah me neither. It’s not too late to turn it around my friends! I vowed to get more organized, and well it started off ok, but somewhere it went kinda downhill again. Thankfully, I had the opportunity to review […]
*I was provided with an Epson LW-600P Portable Label Printer to facilitate this review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.” For those of you who are already Type A and super-duper organized, I don’t need to proselytize on the beauty that is the label. You already know that labels are good for school items, […]
During my first pregnancy, I daydreamed about peaceful days spent strolling through the park or rocking a sleeping infant in my arms. While I love being a mom, my life is more chaotic than I’d envisioned. I have two young boys and work full-time outside the home. The competing demands of children and clients mean […]
Preserving my family’s memories is important to me, and I’ve spent many happy hours scrapbooking. Unfortunately, some of the most precious documents are not on acid-free paper. I recently received a Fellowes Saturn2 95 Laminator to review, and I’m using it to preserve my children’s artwork, memorable school assignments and newspaper clippings. Newspaper clippings are […]
Shopping for the holiday season is quite possibly the most stressful undertaking of the year. Buying presents for my immediate family is often a fun challenge – picking out what they’d like best, wrapping them in fun paper and seeing the look on their faces as they open them. I enjoy finding the most exciting and parent approved toys possible for my kids and figuring out what my husband secretly wants the most.
I’m not ashamed to admit that I’m a label fanatic. Labels combine my childhood love of stickers and my grown-up obsession with organization.
I own a label-maker, which gets a lot of use in my house. If you’re looking for an inexpensive label, I would definitely use a label-maker. But when you need a label that can stand up to daily use, I.D. Me Labels is a good choice.
Is your playroom cluttered with blocks, LEGO toys, cars, and trains? While you could spend your precious free time organizing, a better strategy is to inspire your children to clean up their own toys. Purchasing the right storage solutions makes the job easier.
One of my favorite products is the ZipBin, a combination toy and organizational product. ZipBins convert between play mats and storage bins in a zip (sorry…I couldn’t resist the pun)
The Miss Gigi-Mae Tether System is a Momma Gotta Have. If you’ve ever reached around to grab a toy off the floor of your car while driving or picked your child’s sippy cup off a grimy restaurant floor, you’ll understand the need for this tether system.
This mom-invented product is designed to attach to a carseat, stroller or high chair. Simply attach baby’s toys or sippy cup to the four retractable clips to keep them off the floor and safely in reach. (You can view a demo of this product here. )
