When you think about childrens bedtime routines, you tend to think about reading a book with them – it’s one of the best ways to spend some quality time together, it relaxes them for sleeping, and is a really lovely way to end the day. In fact, reading can be a great thing to do […]
One of my favourite things is to find products that can truly help around the house – and this week has been a good one! I was lucky enough to be invited to take a look at the new – quite tongue in cheek – Sugru “JOY OF FIX” campaign running at the moment, and […]
The 1st-7th November this year is National Organising Week – otherwise known as NOW. It has been launched to tie in with the Association of Professional Declutterers and Organisers (apdo-uk) 10th Birthday celebrations (happy birthday apdo-uk!), and I wanted to share some information with you today about it in case you wanted to get involved […]
Bathrooms are busy places – in constant use and always seeming to need cleaning and tidying as a result. Without easy to use storage and organising ideas things can get crazy really quickly, and it’s nearly impossible to be able to take a calming and relaxing bath or long shower at the end of a […]
Autumn is a popular time for people to put their homes on the market – summers over and you can be settled into your new home by Christmas. As such, and following on from my “Decluttering your home for selling” post where I talked about how decluttering is the #1 tip to make your home […]
Here’s the next fantastic post in my series of interviews with professionals organisers – I hope you’re enjoying them and finding out a few new things from a different perspective – I know I am!
I am really pleased to be able to offer you a fantastic giveaway this month, a stunning Academic Year Diary from my friends at Busy B.
I’ve had lots of favourable feedback from you about the series of interviews with professionals organisers, and lots of questions to ask – so today I am pleased to welcome Rachel Papworth who has kindly taken some time to give you some tips and advice.
Continuing the series of interviews with professionals related to getting organised, I am really lucky and grateful to have Ingrid Jansen answering a few questions for us today.
This months competition is for a set of fantastic organising products from Busy B. They are a fantastic brand with loads of great ideas for organising everywhere in your home – I particularly like their labels and lists which is why I was so happy to receive a few goodies through the post last month […]
Because of this blog, I often get asked about where you can go to get help with any organising problems you have in your home or life, as sometimes it can be too overwhelming to start by yourself. Where to start, what to do, how to do it so it stays organised etc…. are all […]
As its now spring and the sun is finally deciding to show itself for a while at least (well, it is the UK!), I have decided to have a garden related giveaway this month. Mays competition from organisemyhouse.com – garden related goodies!
I love to get inspiration and ideas for my home and life from various books and magazines, and having been a reader of Getting Organized magazine for a few years now, I was absolutely delighted when I was asked to appear in the recently released Spring edition!
I gave away some KTWO products a few months ago, and they were so popular I’m back with another selection for you! This month it’s the turn of all things food related – and I’ve picked a great selection of 4 products for you to win. The 4 products are – Kitchen Garden Notes, Cooks […]
I have used eBay for many years now, both for selling and buying various items for myself and my house – and as such was really excited to be asked by them to try out a brand new feature they were launching before it hit the site. This feature is something that I really feel […]
I have been offering monthly giveaways for a while now, and am very conscious that most are for UK readers only. As my readers are from every part of the world (thank you!) I wanted to enable everyone to have a chance of winning. So – what to pick? Its obvious really! …..
I am a sucker for trying new organising products, and have long been a fan of the KTWO product ranges that I am sure you will have seen in shops and online before. So, this month, I have raided my stock cupboard and have a set of 4 great organising products from KTWO to giveaway.
I often write posts about getting my own home organised – and as a result use products that I truly think help and make all the difference. These are the products that I use frequently, or have used in the past and love. Because of this, some people started to ask me to put it […]
The start of the new year is always a good time to reflect and work out where you are going, what your goals are – and generally get life sorted!. As such, I have a fantastic giveaway for you from me this month – and thats a set of 2 gorgeous Filofax Flex Planner/Notepad Books:- […]
One thing I want to learn about next year (a new years resolution really) is to get my photos more organised, and to actually take more – time goes by so quickly and if you blink you can miss it too easily. I love my tradition of creating a photo book of the past year […]
Buying a Diary is something that you need to tackle if you want to be organised throughout the year – but there are so many diaries to choose from, so where do you start?! I have done some diary shopping (its a hard life!) and have picked my favourite 6 diaries to hopefully make your […]
Christmas shopping can get expensive – very quickly. As a result of this, I wanted to thank my readers for a great year, and offer a prize that should come in handy at this time of year…
I have always loved books and reading. My favourite times as a child were when I was tucked up in bed with my torch, reading under the covers so my parents didn’t know I was still awake – I suppose I should have known then that I was a night owl! However, there was always […]
One of my favourite times of the year is when I get my hands on my new diary. I love the feeling of anticipation of what the year ahead will bring, starting with a clean slate so to speak, and the idea that I can make things work even better for myself and my family […]
I don’t know about you – but drying washing is a real bug bear of mine – or at least it used to be. Its not really an issue in the spring and summer when you can (fingers crossed) hang it all outside and by the end of the day bring it all in, dry […]
Its that time again – I am so excited when I see that the latest edition of “Get Organized Magazine” has arrived in my inbox! Its always full of great ideas and articles, and is fantastic to keep on top of the latest goings on in the world of organising. And this edition hasn’t disappointed […]
Sorry! I had to mention it though, as its getting to that time where you need to start to plan a little, and get ahead of the game. You’ll feel better for it! Well – I have a copy of the lovely Seasonal Planner from KTWO products – bought by me to give away to […]
I am in love with baking. Its the one part of cooking that feels like a true treat for me, and I find it both a relaxing time for me and a great way to spend quality time with my daughter. Baking seems to be everywhere at the moment as well, which is great news […]
I don’t know about you, but one thing that I find lacking on the magazine shelves in this country are magazines related to organising. We have cooking, home interiors, gossip in abundance, but homemaking and creating a more organised home and life is missing. It was one of the reasons I started this blog to […]
How many times have you wanted to delete something you’e written down – but can’t because its in pen rather than pencil? I would offer a guess at LOADS! – As thats exactly where I was at…. until now! I am a traditional girl at heart, and love love LOVE my pen and paper way […]
