Let's Get Organized! {You've got this}

What's the definition of organization?  "Having everything in their place so you don't go mad looking for them"  Well, that's not the official definition but I like it. Things just run smoother when you are organized, when you can find anything in a matter of seconds. Happy Smiles all around!  Below are some organizing tips, really good simple ideas. Take a look!
 If you're looking for a more convenient place to keep the remote controls, put a wide-mouth vase or other good-looking container on your side table, and put all of them inside. Not only will you know where they are but it will look good too.  Read more about this Here

Storing baking sheets, cutting boards and sturdy platters upright on kitchen shelves frees space and keeps you from having to lift a heavy stack when you need only one item. Read more about this Here

 In your kitchen cabinet or pantry, use S hooks to hold an inventory list -- so you know what you have, as well as how much you paid per unit, for the sake of future comparison shopping. Read more about this Here

Hanging a dish towel from an oven door makes sense -- the towel is always at the ready, and the oven's warmth quickly dispels dampness. Here's a way to improve on the idea, keeping the towel from slipping off. See the tutorial Here

Unlabeled plastic bags and their mysterious contents are bound to be frustrating.  Use these easy-to-read labels Along with labeling the food you can circle a month and date.  Download the tags Here 

Retrieving a jar of honey from the back of a crowded cabinet can be awkward. For a simple fix, gather the small items you store on the shelf onto a spare baking tray, then treat it like a drawer, carefully sliding it in and out for easy access. The pan will also catch drips, speeding cleanup. Martha Stewart

Take storage to new levels with shelves below a row of jackets. Install shelves near the base of your closet, and you'll no longer have to rifle through items strewn across the floor. Here, each family member has his or her own bin for hats and scarves.  Read more Here

I love the idea of using a chrome drawer tray for silverware drawer. Here's a source for the chrome drawer tray  Idea from Martha Stewart  You can find something similar at Bed, Bath and Beyond. Just measure your drawer before heading over so you make sure you buy just the right amount of boxes (this is the best idea for this that I've seen)

 Use this same idea for your kitchen utensils. When everything is in their place it is easy to find.  Source for the chrome drawer tray  Read more about this Here
