Do you have a special organizing tip that helps you get organized and stay organized?
If you have something – a routine, a hint, a method for keeping your home neat and tidy – a national women’s magazine wants to know! They are looking for fresh ideas from real women around the country.
Send your submissions to Leslie Pepper at LeslieLido@gmail.com by Friday, July 3rd. (BTW, pro organizers can submit as well, but keep in mind that only your name, city, and state will be included in the article, not your business name or website.)
Once your organizing tip is approved, you’ll find out what magazine it is! And it’s big…
Don’t forget to share your ideas here! We’d love to know the scoop.

Buy yourself a good set of stainless steel pots and pans and never have to buy them again! You can do it one at a time too. Remember to recycle the old cruddy ones for their metal.

I made something to hang jewelry from out of cardboard (I wanted to recycle). You can use a bit of cereal box. I formed and folded it into a sort of pyramid/Toblerone shape. Read more
I keep the clutter in my car under control by using an empty tissue box as a trash can. Napkins, candy wrappers, old shopping lists…a tissue box can hold a LOT! When it’s a full as it can get, I toss the whole thing and replace it with another.
(or you can keep your kitten in it) 🙂

1. Donate clothing that has “shrunk” to a charity such as the Salvation Army. Someone in need will be able to use it.
2. Store items that you don’t use often.
3. Donate items that you haven’t used for a few years.

I use dowell rods strung across my peg board to hold rolls of ribbon. All that I have to do is cut off the needed length and voila!
