All the things I talk about and bring to you on this blog are because I genuinely think they will help with some part of homemaking and getting more organised – and self storage is one of those topics I have yet to cover in any real depth. Self storage can be a really useful […]
I love reading about getting organised. Getting lots of different peoples perspectives can be really refreshing and I always end up learning something new that I can put to use in my own home which is a bonus! I wanted to share some of my favourite organising books with you that I have in my […]
No matter how many posts I write on this blog, I don’t think I will ever run out of ideas! That’s how big the subject of creating a simpler home and life is – pretty much all encompassing. This got me thinking. Although I do have loads of future posts already in my head, what […]
I don’t do giveaways very often, but today I am teaming up with my sister site Style My House – and am really pleased to be able to offer you the chance to win some gorgeous items from a place that I have long since loved – Lettered and Lined.
Happy Happy Christmas to you! I really hope that you’re having a great day, with the least amount of stress and hassle possible…. I have a couple of things for you to take a look at today…..
Having a more organised home life becomes easier when you enable everyone who lives in your home to be more proactive and stop having to ask you about everything that’s going on each week – and nothing makes this more easy than a wall planner. Wall planners (or calendars) are a great addition to an […]
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!
Pinterest is the relatively new social media site that has really gained momentum over recent times – growing faster than any other site every month. I use it and love it myself, and I thought what better time to share it with you than the summer, when hopefully you will have a little more down […]
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:- […]
As its Christmas week I wanted to do a roundup of the year for you – so you can see some of the best bits of this year again! It also gives you some reading for when the foods eaten and you are relaxing! ;o) These posts are the ones that I liked the most […]
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…
