Nail Polish

What color are you sporting today? Today my nails are a dark purple. The color is called ‘Lacy not Racy.’ How do they come up with such fun color names? I want that job! I have quite a collection of polishes. Every time I go to Target I have to grab a new shade! That means that I have a mess of polishes that needs organizing. I guess it’s a good thing that I found this roundup from Diply. It has eight ways that polish can be stored and organized and they are all pretty brilliant ideas.

I like the bookshelf side storage idea a lot. I don’t know where I would put a shelf in the bathroom and I don’t want my polish displayed in the living room. Lol. The Polish rolls is more my style. The magnetic board is a good idea too because other makeup can be magnetized and it would save a lot of space. Here are some other fun named nail polishes… I love them!

I am so excited to feature this roundup from Diply today. It has 16 ways to organize and overhaul your closet that you simply must see. These life hacks and invaluable tips are going to save you heartache when it comes to that catch-all known as the closet.

Our closet is getting remodeled once we save up the money. Right now there are makeshift shelves and store bought clothes hangers and storage racks but no permanent wall fixtures or cubbies. So annoying! It’s especially difficult to navigate and organize when nothing is permanent but it’s not impossible. I’ve used idea #2, for storing scarves, very helpful. I like #13 a lot! Once we get our permanent shelves I’m going to have to buy some shelf dividers. Aren’t these ideas grand?

If you are needing some help ‘taking control’ of your closet… check out what Target has to offer. I have one of their two-tiered racks and I love it.

Laundry

I am obsessed with my laundry room. That Pinterest board is jam packed with fun ideas and DIYs. There are just so many great possibilities to choose from. I don’t know many people who honestly love doing laundry. Be that as it may, there is no reason that they can’t love the laundry room itself! Mine will be brilliant when done. This roundup from Diply has just a few more fabulous ideas to add to the laundry room inspiration file. They are great.

Number 1 would be wonderful. Did you know that store bought pedestals can run upward of $500? A piece? Building them yourself would be much cheaper! Just be sure that they are sturdy. I have something like number 11, I bought it online, but I haven’t put it up yet. I’m waiting until after I finish painting. I have a change jar too (number 3) but mine isn’t fancy. Now I want it to be! Are any of these going to make it into your laundry room? Here are some more fun laundry room ideas – you can never have too many.

Space Saving

Keep calm and storage on. Organize, throw away, give away, put in storage, and repeat. That is one of the life cycles that I hate. There is never enough space.

I found these ones super helpful and I hope you do too…

These should help me get it under control! I’m thinking #3 for the playroom (craft supplies) and #7 would help clean up a messy desk. My fridge isn’t too bad but I really like how it’s organized in #12. Clever clever clever.

Why be organized? Because it’s good for you! Simplify 101 can prove it.
