My daughter the Shoe-dini!!!

January 5th, 2010

Ninety-nine percent of the time my youngest daughter removes her shoes and socks in the car. To “outsmart” her, I have tried velcro boots, laced sneakers, and buckled sandals to no avail. Sophie would give Houdini a run for his money; not bad for a two-year-old.  Last week her one shoe was missing. I exhaustively searched my house and car without success. Hummmm. Two weeks later my sister informed me that her maid found the shoe underneath her sofa. Apparently, my daughter had taken off her shoe in my mom’s car and it ended up at my sister’s house somehow. The only way my sister could identify the sneaker was by Sophie’s ID Me label attached to the velcro strap!  Needless to say, thank goodness for shoe-strap labels!

Storing Christmas Decor

January 5th, 2010

My kids and I enjoy decorating our house for the holidays every year, but when it comes to taking down the lights, ornaments, and decor it always seems a lot less exciting and rather boring. I really don’t look forward to this project because somehow putting all the holiday items in storage, always requires more work than putting them away. Sounds very similar to the law of physics, right? What goes up must come down.” To make the break-down process easier on myself, I had custom bin labels put on two huge plastic storage containers that reads, Christmas Decor. Labeling the storage boxes are highly functional when you have ten other containers that look exactly the same in the basement. Every year when Christmas time approaches, I know which container to take down from the shelf and where to put them away.

Organizing Your Playroom

Organizing a Playroom

My kids have a TON of toys in our playroom, and when clean-up time approaches every night we all pitch in to help remove the enormous amount of toys from the floor, sofas, tables, and shelves. It’s amazing how much mess and mayhem two toddlers can produce in such a short period of time. And, after three years of playing Cinderella to these two, I have the routine down to a science. All the toy bins are labeled with Little People, Legos, Dolls, Crafts, Instruments, etc. Labeling makes organization simpler, and also helps visitors know where things belong.

Name Buttons for Crocs - Name Labels

December 7th, 2009

If you are one of the millions of moms who’s child own a pair of Crocs you can now label their shoes with ID Me Name Labels (we own 4 pairs in this household.)My kids love their Crocs! I  can certainly appreciate these shoes because they’re colorful, practical, and simple for our kids to put on. No Lacing! I used my ID Me Binky Button labels and placed it on the side buttons of my daughter’s winter Crocs and the labels fit perfectly. Not to mention they work great in identifying her shoes from her classmates and sister. The label seen here has my daughter’s name on it with pink background in space patrol font. CUTE!

Kid’s Homework Center

December 4th, 2009

Now that school has been in session for a couple months, I’m sure your kid’s papers, homework, and artwork are beginning to pile up somewhere in your house similar to Mount Everest.  A great solution to organizing all their “stuff” is by making a Homework Center dedicated for the endless amount of paper that are sent home with them every day.

The Homework Center will help sort out your children’s papers from their siblings and help you throw out what you want to keep or throw away. This project is extremely simple and guaranteed to make life simpler for you. Many retailers such as Walmart, K-Mart, and Target offer plastic storage drawers for under $20 that come in all different shapes and sizes. Choose one that you think will best suit your family. Place the plastic drawer in a community place such as the kitchen or family room so that everyone in your family can have access to the drawers when they need it. Then, want you want to do is label each drawer with your child’s name on it. Everyday when your kids come home for school they can now place all their papers in one drawer instead of leaving it in their schoolbags, on the floor, dining room table, or under the bed.

You can purchased Custom Bin Labels at ID Me Labels.

Simple Steps To Help You ORGANIZE With Kids!

November 15th, 2009

Kids BackSeat Car Organzier

Every mom knows that traveling with kids can be fun, crazy, and definitely messy at times. Thats why I decided to make life a little easier by organizing my mini-van with a car organizer.

Four years ago B.C. (before children) I never had to worry about chocolate milk-stained carpet, finding socks beneath baby seats, siblings screaming at one another, or the discovery of ‘ancient’ French fries on the floor. At the time I was climbing the career ladder as a senior sales rep for a major pharmaceutical company. Ahhhhh, those were the days when I could drive peacefully in my car and listen to uninterrupted radio or have a conversation with another adult sans screaming babies in the backdrop. And, my car was very clean and organized. Fast forward to 2009; I’m now a stay-at-home mom running my own business with two toddlers under four. Needless to say, traveling with them can be a challenge, and my beloved radio has been eclipsed by blaring Arthur, Elmo, and Thomas DVDs, and uninterrupted adult conversation is now a vague memory.

My plan of attack was finding an organizer that would store my childrens’ gear: wipes, diapers, DVDs, tissues, toys, snacks, drinks, and more. I found an organizer called, what else, a “kid’s back-seat organizer.” I made a bee-line home after purchasing it, purged my car, and placed all the kids’ odds-and-ends it. It worked out beautifully and I highly recommend buying an organizer for your car, especially if you have kids. Not only does it make life much easier because everything is in one place, but it also helps teach and encourage my children to find things for themselves.

Do you have any tips to help other moms organize their car?  I would love to hear from you. Please feel free to comment.

Kids Reading Center

Martha Stewart





My handmade bookshelf (Top), Martha Stewart bookshelf (Bottom)

A great way to organize your children’s books and stimulate reading is by making—you guessed it—a bookshelf. After researching bookshelves online I finally decided to brave it and build one myself. I was up to the challenge, and i figured it would be a great way to keep me busy. I bought the necessary materials from lowes: wood, dowels, nails, and screws. Ladies, if you own a power drill or screw gun i promise that you can make this too. I kept the project simple by making all the measurements 4-feet wide by 4-feet high, thereby eliminating any confusion. The great news is that Most Home Improvement stores will custom cut your wood so you won’t have to. After 3 hours of drilling and nailing I constructed the bookshelf that i wanted.

More great news: The bookshelf cost less than $60 to make, and I felt a huge sense of accomplishment and enjoyment making it; Shall we say, therapeutic! After hanging the shelf on the wall (you’ll need some help for this part) I arranged the books according to whatever holiday was approaching on the bottom shelf. I have to tell you that I must have read Clifford’s first Halloween a “zillion” times in one night.  I love this bookshelf. It was a great solution for de-cluttering the books that were accumulating on the floor in Sophie’s room, and it truly encourages them to read before bedtime.

If you would like to offer any ideas or tips on how to arrange or organize your children’s room I would love to hear your suggestions. Please feel free to comment.
