I couldn't keep those cats out of there - I guess they wanted to get in a cameo!

Hi Sam - thanks for the note!

I was having a hard time deciding what to do with all of the things I used to post on our old [magnetic] fridge. With our new one being stainless, the front is not magnetic. I asked for your help... Continue reading

That's great to hear! My congrats (and props) go out to Colby College as well! I'm assuming (and hoping) a lot of other colleges take on some sort of project like this. Thank you for pointing out another college that is leading the way with their sustainable efforts!

Kids' artwork is a great way to use the other side of paper! I like your other ideas too :) Thanks for the good ideas Heather!

Hi Trisha! The best place to look would be the Rubbermaid Commercial products website. Good luck - I hope you find something! http://www.rubbermaidcommercial.com

Do you remember how much trash there was when you moved in/out from college? How crazy, overflowingly full the dumpsters were? I follow a blog from the website Earth911, and I was happy to find this story about Arizona State... Continue reading

Thanks for the link! I didn't really think of putting magnetic stainless OVER the non-magnetic stainless fridge. Now I just need to decide if I want all of my stuff back on the front of the fridge or not - the clean (non-cluttered look) is one that I like, but I definitely miss having my photos in clear view. The velcro is a good idea even if I ended up putting something on the side or the fridge or inside of a cabinet too. Good tip! Thanks for your comment Happykat!

I like the combo cork/magnet board - good idea! The magnet strip seems good for flexibility too - so you could always be moving things and removing things... Thanks for the ideas - very smart!

Glad to hear the command strips have held up so well for you Shris! I've actually used some of the smaller command hooks and things, but I might have to expand my horizons a bit! (I'm also wondering, "Is my purse more than 5 pounds?" ha!) Thanks for the ideas - love that you use them to hang recipes on the wall. I appreciate you sharing!

I love this idea of repurposing the cookie sheets! I never would have thought of that. I'm glad I asked for help :) It's great to hear how well it works for you - and that is really WORKS (and you didn't just hear about it from someone else). Thanks for the great tip Jennifer!

Thanks G! Working here has for sure kicked my organization up a notch (if that is possible! ha!) Your piggy bank sounds great - what a great idea. I'm sure Gigi loves it :) any reusing and recycling is a good way to go. happy earth week to you too!

Love it! I do think sometimes that I should make "custom" notepads for people out of my scratch paper...I do have plenty :) Thanks for your comment and link Heather!

Being a graphic designer, I admittedly [and unfortunately] use a lot of paper. I try to only print when I need to and use both sides of pieces when I can. One thing that has helped me do this is... Continue reading

I agree that clutter can definitely lead to stress! Storage and organizing solutions are personal and unique to each person, so hopefully you have come to find solutions that work for you - it sounds like you can relate :) Thanks for the comment!

One [simple] green thing that some places are doing that spreads their brand name and saves consumers money is offering incentives for reusable cups. Zoe's Kitchen is a case in point. They offer branded reusable/travel cups for purchase (= distributing... Continue reading

This weekend I had to figure out what to bring to a family dinner. As I rummage through the fridge, I found a new tub of hummus. Perfect! (I already had some pita bread. Bonus!) Most of the time I... Continue reading

Thank you! It's fun to be using our product for the solution - even if it might not be the prettiest thing!

I recently moved to a new desk/cube at work. It was a great opportunity to go through all of my things/files/samples/drawers and purge what I could and organize the rest. In my new space I ended up with this "slot"... Continue reading

I am learning a lot about organizing, but I don't know how good I would be doing someone else's house - ha! As long as you have systems that work for you in your space, then that is all that matters. Thanks for the comment Kristen!

Thanks Cody! On my wish list for my next house (whenever that may be) is for sure a laundry ROOM (not a laundry closet), but this has made our laundry closet SO much more functional - so I figure it's almost as good as it can be for now!

Almost is right - ha! I love that we reused the old countertop that was left when we bought the house. It is amazing how having this space has made me more efficient with the laundry. I am using the hang rod all the time (I love that I don't have to walk upstairs to hang something!), and the flat surface is super useful for folding and sometimes as a make-shift desk for writing out cards, etc. Loving it!

I love over-the-door shoe organizers! I use them for all sorts of things - good call Karen! I use mine for storing holiday ornaments and storing plastic/canvas bags at the moment, and I have one at home that I'm just waiting to find a new use for. Glad yours is working out for all of the hats and gloves for the kids!
