Hello and Happy WILW! If you are new, Wednesdays are when I tell you about things I love that I think you should know about. Totally random items/hacks that are making my life better or positive experiences I have had. This week they all have to do with organization.
First, my entrance way major #ballinonabudget “mud room”! Y’all, this has served it’s purpose and so much more. and it’s is wayyyy less expensive than getting a custom piece made. The shoe bins contain ALL of the kids shoes AND their socks! They know to put them away when we get home and it makes leaving home that much easier. The top rack is very sturdy and I love having a place I can put things that no child can reach. AMEN. It comes in this size and a small size. The bottom piece and bins are Target (both bins and shelf have other color options). You can get 4,6, or 8 cubes. Since the cubes are plastic, they are easy to clean should they get dirty from all the shoes. There are also bins for their jackets, hats, etc.
Second, my bag. I love this because it perfectly fits my laptop, planner, etc but has two front pockets so my phone doesn’t get lost in the abyss. It is sleek but it keeps me organized. I got mine on Black Friday and had my initials put on it! It is on the pricier side, but I got it from livefashionABLE and really love their mission.
Last, the MVP List app. This app is so simple but I have loved it. I first downloaded it before our trip to PA but since then I use it all the time. I love the satisfaction of checking things off, but that they don’t dissapear unless you want them to. This way, you can make a checklist for packing for trips that you come back to often. *You can also use it when you go to repack to make sure you don’t leave anything! I also use it for ideas, the grocery store, etc. And you can easily share the list with your spouse, roommate, etc. PS, it’s FREE!
That’s all I have this week. Hope one of these is helpful to you!
