According to one study, we spend an average of 15 hours a week in our cars. If yours looks like mine after kids to school, soccer, ballet, school, soccer, ballet etc., you need some good organizing solutions.
Problem: The back seat is a bog of shoes, half eaten sandwiches, juice boxes, melted crayons and general detritus. Read more
I ran across this photo on flickr the other day.
It’s such a simple idea but, why not? Those boxes, really are a pain when you’re rushing around in the morning trying to shove little crustless sandwiches into the zip lock baggies. This is a way to keep them catagorized, but neat. I also like the idea of putting several top-less boxes into one larger container. This way, you can grab the whole container and have them right at your finger-tips. Thank you flickr member, lazyorganizer
Clever, clever little hook. How do you do it?
Just throw your jacket at the clever hook and let it ‘grab’. So easy!
The secret is in gravity. It’s the law. Get hooked.
When something is placed on the hook the top arm automatically comes down to “pinch” the material in place. The heavier the material, the harder the “pinch”!!
So cool…and simple. Read more
I love these great alternatives to a wall of shelving for your books. the concealed shelf, totally takes your library and turns into a fly-brary.
or how about this simple but amazingly designed piece. turning your terry into a bit of art.
a great way to display towels when not in use.
both of these are from umbra and retail for under $20.00
If you have children, organized chaos is about as good as it gets most days.
With the help of open storage bins like these, it can actually look pretty darn cute too. And they’re easy enough for the grommets to do for themselves. What i like is the dump and run concept. (no child i know has the attention span to spend time organizing). These were found at land of nod and Pottery Barn Kids
Ok, Clutter Control Freaks, this is how it begins. Dishes, clothing, toys, books.

A few carefully selected photos or pieces of art are great on a fridge-front, but a cluttered mess of ephemra, makes me lose my appetite.
Here’s a neat and tidy way to keep things handy while making use of hidden space. This is easily do-able with materials found at a hardware store. [LG]I love this magnetic memo board[/LG]

Efficiency just got a little prettier.
What a great way to tote all of your ‘need at your finger tips’ items. Sling your craft projects, vanity items, tools, cleaning products – you name it – over you shoulder and go. These bags come in a range of beautiful colors and can be found here
Living in a small home, every shelf counts. As an audio-phile I’ve amassed hundreds of C.D.s. Storing them costs valuable closet space. So I’ve recently tossed all of those jewel cases and have organized all of my C.D.s by genre in one, large, binder. I’ve saved the liner notes with the C.D. and just slid the actual disk, right in front. This is a great solution for your D.V.D.s as well. And it’s portable! These albums can be found at most electronics stores.
Here’s a CD Binder from Stacks and Stacks that holds 128 CDs. They also have this great 100-CD Organizer with a 20-CD Travel Case.
So many jewels and baubles. What’s a girl to do? They’re so hard to organize. They get tangled, lost, forgotten.
I’ve found a way to showcase your treasures in an easy and art-directed way.
Decorative hooks meant for hanging dishtowels are a great solution to this ‘problem’ (*sigh* if only more of our problems were like these…) a great resource for these: anthropologie.com
