Online Room Planner

31 Dec

I love to rearrange my furniture, but sometimes it doesn’t work the way I see it in my head.  Urban Barn has an online room planner that makes rearranging so much easier.  Now I can plan out the moves, see how they work and then use my muscle only once.

Clear Toy Storage Bags

22 Dec

If Santa is bringing your good girls and boys toys this year you might want a practical way to store them.  Make it and love it has a solution for you.  I like the fact that you can see what is in the bag.  Here is a mom tip:  If you bring down one bag or box of toys at a time, let them play and then if they want something different have them pick up what they were playing with first and then they can play with a new bag or box of toys.  Helps keep the clutter in check.  And if your child acts up while you are on the phone have a special toy bag that only comes down while you are on the phone.
