Happy weekend everyone! Every Saturday morning I spend a few hours getting my house in order. The kids do some chores (unless they finished Friday during my week ahead prep) while I tackle a spot in my house that needs a little sprucing up. I thought it might be fun on Saturdays to share a past organizing post or two to help motivate us all! A lot of times I’m not tackling a new space, but instead just spending 15 minutes getting a space I’ve already organized back in order. This week my kids are tidying up our craft room and all of the art supplies.
I love having set places to keep all of the markers, crayons, pencils, etc. Easy to clean up after a project!
Since May is right around the corner it’s a great time to coral and organize wrapping supplies. With Mother’s Day and the end of the school year nearing (plus we have a couple of birthdays) May is a busy gift month!
You can see my full post on how I organize our wrapping supplies here.
And last but certainly not least, as soon as I finish this post I’m off to tidy up my junk drawer! Usually takes a whole 5 minutes to clear out the junk and have it looking like this again.
I hope this helps motivate you to tackle a spot or two in your house this weekend! Happy weekend organizing!

Thanks for the great tips. My junk drawer never looks that tidy…. Too much stuff!
Oh, Erin! How I wish you could come and organize my house. It needs it, and you have such great ideas!
By the way, I miss your fashion posts! I think you have great style. Would love to see what you’ve been wearing these days!
Enjoy the rest of the weekend!

Hi cute Shannon! So fun to hear from you! :) You are too sweet. I need to do a fashion post again sometime. I’ll try to do one some time in the next month just for you. ;) xo
Where did you get the cute dividers for your junk drawer?
Hi Lynsey! They are from Home Goods. :)
I’m stuck in CICU with my baby and was trying to find something to keep me awake as she snoozes in my arms. What a fun surprise to find a post up :). I want your craft room! Have a good weekend.
Thanks JC! Glad I could help. ;) I hope your sweet baby is ok? Kiss him/her for me! I miss the days when my babies slept in my arms. :) xo
Love your organizing tips! I did work on one of my manyy disorganized areas on our rainy day yesterday. One step at a time, right? Have a good week!
I was literally at The Container Store on Saturday, trying to find something to organizing my wrapping stuff with! My first idea was to use one of those Elfa systems that fit on a door, and add it to the back of our home office door. But now I’m wondering if I could just re-arrange our office cabinets and use one for the wrapping treasures! Hmmm…decisions, decisions…
Thanks for making me think!
Hi! I am new to your site and wondered if you could tell me the name of your wood floors in your family room? How is it holding up? Are you happy with it? What grey paint color did you use? We are in the process and all of these decisions are driving me mad :) Wish I had your gift or at least live in the same state so I could hire you :). Very cute blog!
Hi Jessica! Nice to “meet” you! :) I did a whole post on my wood floors so you can read about them here:
Our grey paint in the main room of our house is “Seattle” by Frazee. Thank you! :)
Love your blog! Where did you get the first two containers for the art supplies? Love them!
Thank you June! So happy you are enjoying my blog! :) The small wood crate is from World Market (I think it’s supposed to hold drinks) :) and the long wood container is from Tai Pan in Utah (but I found it over a year ago so not sure they’ll still have that?) Take care!
