I am in no way OCD about things, but I do enjoy things being neat and tidy. And lately I am not feeling very organized. I started a DIY project this weekend that isn't going to get finished very soon. I am painting a hutch that my great aunt Eva gave me for my apartment at college. I really like it, but it is a little dated for my taste. So I thought I would give it a fresh look. Well my husband helped me sand and prime the top half yesterday and then I put 2 coats of paint on it. However, we were going to do the bottom half today and its been raining all day :( That means it will have to wait!! Which means the apartment is going to continue to be a mess. I feel like I need to be inspired to get organized so I obviously went to Pinterest. Let me know what you think.

Pinterest has some AWESOME ideas for organizing any type of space. Here are some of my favorites!

Pantry organization :)
Craft room
Storage for shoes/scarves/hats/etc
Wrapping Paper/Ribbons
Bathroom storage
Gorgeous!- love the teal and the baskets
If only...

Here are some organizing goals of mine:
  1. clean out and reorganize cabinet under bathroom sink
  2. organize itunes and iphoto on my computer
  3. organize my scrapbooking stuff
  4. get a hanging jewelry organizer
  5. organize pots/pans in kitchen

A few side notes: 

  1. I have some very exciting news to share soon about one of my BEST FRIENDS!! It's really hard to keep it a secret! 
  2. Also, I tried a new recipe out tonight. My husband was kind of skeptical at first, but I we ended up really liking them! I made black bean cakes with tomato-corn salsa :) I will share it next time!
  3. One last thing, I ordered a bubble necklace from here: and I CAN'T WAIT for it to come!!
  4. We got Season 4 of House yesterday, which completed our collection (until the final season 8 comes out)!!! Do you love House???
Happy Organizing!

  1. i don't know if you have an idea for a hanging jewelry organizer yet, but i have one that my mom got me from michael's that i would totally recommend! it's on a hanger so you can put it in your closet with the rest of your clothes, or put a hook on the back of your closet door and hang it there. it has tons of little pockets that hang down on both sides for earrings and bracelets, and at the bottom of each side are 3 bigger pockets for necklaces.

    1. I have seen those! It's probably going on my christmas list. One of my old roommates had one. It holds SO MUCH jewelry :)

  2. Do you know where the white jewelry furniture is from?


I love hearing from my readers! Thank you for taking the time to show my blog some love :)
