The Racor Bike Stand Is As Easy as 1-2-3!
By Amy Trauntvein
Organization in my garage is not a strong suit of mine. It’s a place where everything gets put that either doesn’t belong in the house, or doesn’t fit! I AM able to park my van in it so that’s a plus for me, but frankly the rest could use a little help. Especially with bigger items, such as bikes. That’s where Read more

Be Sure To Organize Ahead Of Time For Your Travel
Organizing prior to a trip isn’t hard, it just takes time management.
Planning for a trip, of course depends on what kind of trip you are going on. Is it a family vacation, are you flying or driving? How many people are going? Is it a business trip and you’re leaving the family at home?
For this post, I’m going to plan for a …

Wish We Had A Mariano’s In Columbus!
I had the opportunity to have a tour of the grand opening of the Harwood Heights Mariano’s Fresh Market last week. I walked out of that store really wishing that I would be able to shop there regularly. Of course, that isn’t an option for me since I don’t live in Chicago, but I’d love Mariano’s to come this way!
The feel of the store …Pin It

Losing A Pet Is Never Easy
I lost my beloved pet, Sadie a week ago today. She was almost 11 years old, but still had the spunk and personality of much younger dog. She was my soul mate dog. I connected strongly with Sadie when she was just a pup. She was a rescue that a vet in Westerville took in. The litter all had parvo virus and 1 of the 7 died. …

Heading to SXSW last month was quit the experience. I joined the Collective Bias crew in Austin, TX for the SXSW Interactive week.
Enter the ”Jambulance”, which is an old ambulance that was souped up with music, cooling machine and seats inside. There was a charging station on the outside and used it as the hub for our “Cantina De Social”. From Friday, March 8th until Monday March 11th, we had the …Pin It

With this being Easter Weekend, I wanted to speak my mind a bit. Can’t we just agree to disagree?
Social Media (world issues) having been kind of blowing up right now. I can think of three biggies that have prompted me to write this post.
What I don’t like to see in social media is for people to be bashing other people for what they believe. Do you really think you’ll …

We Can Use Help With Office Supplies Right? Staples Can Help
I received this fun gift pack, along with a Relay Flash Drive to review for Staples. Anyone who knows me, knows that I can walk into an office supply store and just roam the aisles. I love them. Honestly, I’d prefer going through an organization, or office store, over shopping in a clothing store. I know, I know.. I’t …Pin It

A Bedroom Redo For My Daughter
by: Amy Trauntvein
You can redecorate a bedroom on the cheap also!
The time had come, all too quickly, for my oldest child to leave the nest (sob!). He embarked onto college and now is in California serving a mission for 2 years and will be heading back to college once he’s back, so that meant changing up bedrooms, much to my 2 middle children’s utter excitement! My second …Pin It

But We Have A Bazillion Pens In The House!
Why is That? Pencils and pens accumulate, we put them away, but then don’t use the ones put away – we buy more. Right? We also get them from all over. Trade shows, expos, conferences or company reps give them away freely. Of course there are always those who use them at work and walk home with them in their pockets. (Tell me it …Pin It

Chalkboard Jar Labels Using Chalkboard Contact Paper
I have seen some of the cutest chalkboard labels on the large jars in kitchens from other creative blogs. It inspired me to go out and find the large jars for my kitchen counters.
Most of the chalkboard labels that I have seen made was by using the chalkboard paint. Although that is a great method and more than likely over all less …Pin It

Use All Of Your Closet Space!
By adding extra closet shelves in your closet, you can maximize your closet space. We have a fairly small walk in closet and we have maximized the space for minimal money.
Of course I’d love to have a custom closet, but it isn’t something we can afford to sink money into. So we have utilized our space by adding extra shelves. You can see where …
