Safety in the home is critical – and should always be thought about and planned to help avoid extra stress should the worst happen. As such I wanted to look today at the safety items every home should have, and a little information around each of them. Hopefully as you are reading you can mentally […]
I do love a new diary – full of crisp, clean pages ready to fill with busy lives! – and I am really pleased to announce today that the 2016 Diary from Organise My House has been created and is now ready for you (and me!) to use.
Holding a party in your home usually means decorating in some fashion, whether its a simple banner, a few balloons, or a whole themed house – the options really are endless!. But however fun it is to decorate your home for a party, stress can take over when it comes to how to put things […]
Moving house is as stressful as it gets. All the sorting and logistics to do, not to mention moving an entire house of “stuff” to another, less familiar house. It’s a recipe for disaster and stress overload if not organised properly. The last thing you want to happen on moving day is to be faced […]
While at a trade show a while ago, I stumbled across a product that I was so excited about and one that I really wanted to share with you as I think it’s a great little find that can really help at home – and that product is a Smartbel.
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.
