For whatever reason, our master bedroom has always been the most neglected room in our house.  The walls are still bare aside from paint, and the only furniture has been our bed and a small table with a white noise machine and a humidifier.

Exciting, I know.

We’ve said for years “we really should get a dresser” or “some drawers would be nice”.  We even checked out a few furniture stores.  So much of what we looked at just didn’t seem to be of good value, didn’t fit our style, or wasn’t right for the space.

I created this free boating printable subway art in an Ambassador Program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Discover Boating. I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation.

As a Discover Boating Ambassador for the summer, last month I shared with you all some tips for renting and how to choose a boat for your outing or vacation.  I hope they were of some help to anyone looking to get out on the water this summer!

Sunset on the Lake

We haven’t yet had the chance to go out ourselves; the summer simply has been more busy that we had expected.  Between graduations and work and helping Ashley shop for and get settled into her new apartment and job, there hasn’t been a lot of extra time. Continue reading »

This is a sponsored post. I am a Sears blogger, though all opinions are my own.

We have lots of organization projects ahead of us this year.  My office, Bubbles’ bedroom, the garage, the kitchen cabinets.  That’s what I can think of just off the top of my head, but there are more, I know.

As part of our organization plan, we’ll be searching for a few new pieces of furniture, too.  Bubbles needs a new dresser and chest of drawers, and something to house her books.

I received samples to facilitate this post on guest bathroom ideas.  No additional compensation was received and all thoughts and words are my own.

House guests are definitely more common during the holidays.  Whether it’s Thanksgiving or Christmas or the time in between, family and friends will be coming from far and wide to spend time together.  It’s always nice to make guests as comfortable as possible, but you definitely don’t want to break the bank.

The new year is just around the corner and it’s the perfect time to get – and stay! – organized.  Over the next year I’ll be bringing you articles filled with organizing tips, cleaning plans, lists, printables, and more in an effort to help you be on top of your game.  It’ll be a good way for me to make sure that we’re staying organized, too!

Holiday Decoration Storage Tips For Organizing Your Holiday Decor

To kick off your holiday decoration storage and organization, start by taking advantage of these after-Christmas sales and stock up on plastic storage bins.  Walmart and Target (as well as other places, I’m sure) generally discount them more at this time of year than any other.  Try to pick up a few in different colors.  That way you can color-code your storage and make things easier to find.
