I have been pretty good about converting to reusable shopping bags. I love my canvas ones that I take to the grocery store. In addition to being friendlier to the environment and reducing waste, they hold more groceries, don't fall... Continue reading

I love photos. I fill my home with them because I like to remember certain special times with people. I always tried to select my most favorite memory. Example: instead of having 12 different photos as a bridesmaid with friends... Continue reading

Oh yes, I agree - it can be a pain. First of all, we tend to dump it on the first flat surface we find, thus junking up our counters & tables! Then, there is the balancing act of when do process it. Daily might be too much, but too long in between times could cause late bills. We recommend keeping junk mail shredder or recycled can right near the place you receive the mail. Thus, you can simply toss that off first hand and it makes it easier to sort. I have seen some people use a bin that has one section labeled for things that need attention on the days of the month 1-15, and the other for later. That way, it is easier to keep up. Lauren

Tanya, The beauty of the Homefree ssytem is that it can expand and contract to fit most any sized closet. You just buy the kit that fits your dimensions and it can be customized for you. At Lowe's, the 3-6" is $93, the 4-8" is $114 and the 6-10 is $176. Good luck & happy organizing! Lauren

There was an insert in last Sunday's paper for $5 off. Hopefully, a friend still has the paper you could use to clip it?

A divided premier is a 9 cup container that has little dividers in it so you can separate foods in the compartments. For instance, you could have meat in one side, mashed potatoes in another and a veggie in the third. We have divided Lock-its at Target, divided Easy Find Lids at Kmart, Meijer and Fred Meyer. Divided Premier is also at Meijer.
