Ok. I’m seriously so excited about today’s post! 2019 hit and ever since I have been purging and organizing up a storm. There is something so refreshing and therapeutic about getting your house organized and put together for the new year! It just seems to help make January a better month since it’s a month that can sometimes feel a little long and depressing. Cleaning out unwanted items from our home breathes new life into our space and is just the BEST feeling, right!? I know you all know exactly what I’m talking about. :)
QVC reached out to me at the beginning of the year and asked if I wanted to pick five of their organizing solutions to share in my home. I started going through all of their organizing products on-line and felt like a kid in a candy store. They have so many fun items I had a hard time choosing which 5 to feature! But I definitely had some problem areas in my home I was excited to improve and can’t wait to show you how things turned out. First problem on my list to fix – my pots and pans! I didn’t get a “before” of them but trust me when I say they were bad!
When we built our house I wanted two long pull out drawers for pots and pans under our stove, but because of the size of range I chose, the drawers were going to be too long and large to pull. I opted for two sets of cabinets with pull out drawers inside instead. They were an un-organized hot mess before, but now..
So organized! The reason they were a mess before was because I was trying to cram too much in them. I had lots of pans I never used plus all of the lids inside and it was just too much.
Taking out all of the lids and clearing out pans I don’t use anymore freed up so much space! Now it’s easy to see the pans I love and use most often.
My pot and pan mess was also spilling into these cupboards below my open shelves and they were definitely due for a clean out. (Um why do I have 6 packs of candy canes on the left? And 4 of the same size of frying pan on the right? That I never use because I have other frying pans below my stove! And is this really the best place to store my small vacuum? I think not..)
MUCH better. Do you hear the angels? I believe they started singing once again. It’s a happy sound indeed. ;) Seriously so much better! I got rid of everything I wasn’t using, moved a few things to a better location, and now I have room to store the items I truly love and use most often.
A few larger kitchen items on the left.
And some of my cutting boards and all of my pot/pan lids on the right. These StoreMore Pot Lid and Cookware Organizers might be one of my most favorite organizers ever. They are such a genius solution! Before I discovered these my pot and pan lids were taking up precious space in my pullout drawers. Plus I don’t use lids that often! I do once in a while so I wanted to keep them, but a lot of nights I don’t use them so it’s nice to have them in a different location not taking up precious pot/pan storage space. (I had to lay one lid back a bit because it was too tall to stand straight in this cupboard!)
The Pot Lid Organizers are also so easy to adjust to fit the size of your specific lids and hold everything so nice and organized. I love that they make it so easy to see what I need instead of searching through a messy pile to find the right lid. They are such a great organizing solution – I can’t believe I’ve lived this long without them!
Next little issue at my house. Addison and her slime. (Sigh..) Most kids are over the slime craze but not my Addison! She is as obsessed as ever and loves to make/play with her slime every day. Months ago I finally told her the cabinet next to our dining nook could be her “slime cabinet” because she needed a place to keep everything together. (No way was it leaving the kitchen and going into her room!)
This little cabinet has been driving me crazy for months! She was using so many different sizes of containers and everything was crammed together and I knew there had to be a better way to keep the slime at bay!
The second I saw this Multi-Color Twist Lid Storage Set I knew I had found our slime solution once and for all! Aren’t these fun!? There are four different jar sizes and you can use them in so many different ways. In the pantry or for crafts in a craft room…
or in the kitchen to hold various colors, types and sizes of slime. ;) Addison loved moving all of her slime over to these jars and was so excited about her new organized slime cupboard!
Ready for the after?
Ta-da! Talk about an improvement! This took all of 15 minutes!
I kept all of her slime on the bottom shelf and her supplies on the top.
It’s amazing how these stackable storage jars saved so much room! She has one large empty jar left to fill but knows that if she wants to make more slime after that she has to toss some old slime! That way we can keep things organized in this small cupboard and mom won’t completely lose her mind with slime taking over the kitchen. Addison also knows the rule that if slime is out it has to be on the mat I bought her and it can’t leave the kitchen!
Luckily she’s a responsible slimer so we haven’t had any problems.
Next organizing solution.. time to open my little hobbit door and straighten the mudroom luggage closet again! It’s a space that always needs a refresh each year.
Part of the reason this little closet is hard to keep clean is because it’s such a catch all for random miscellaneous items that we aren’t using. This Over-The-Door Collapsible Organizer was a perfect solution! It is SO easy to install. Just hang it over a door and bam. Extra vertical storage! Do you hear the singing in the background?
Car headphones, pool odds and ends, Kole’s soccer socks and shoes that he’ll need next season but doesn’t need now. The types of things you don’t know where to stash now fit nicely in this organizer taking up ZERO closet space!
I can think of SO many things you could use this for if you are short on space in your home. In an office to hold wrapping paper or office supplies. In a pantry to store extra food items. In a child’s closet to hold extra shoes, clothes or accessories. In a bathroom to hold toiletries. I wish so badly I would have known about this in my previous smaller home! I would have had one on every door in the house!
Ok.. next obsession! You know I’ve never met a black and white stripe I didn’t like so needless to say, I was sold on this Thermal Insulated Bag and Tote Set before I even knew how cool they are. :)
So cute on the outside and this isn’t the only color/pattern they come in. LOTS of fun options! But the magic is on the inside! They are insulated and perfect for bringing home groceries or for a day at the pool, park or beach!
I’ve only had them a few weeks and we’ve honestly used them almost every single day! I love taking them to the grocery store. I also love taking my kids to the grocery store.
One of those sentences wasn’t entirely true. ;)
They are heavy duty, easy to carry, a variety of sizes and PERFECT to hold cold items and other groceries. I’ll never use random sacks and bags again!
My shopping helper and partner in crime agrees.. they are a hit!
Last organizing solution! I mentioned in my healthy snack post that if I take the time to prep healthy snacks and things to eat ahead of time we do much better each week! So I was excited to try out this Lock & Lock Nestable Rectangle Storage Set.
I knew I would love them! Perfect size options and they are so heavy duty but still lightweight. Exactly what I need for storing fruits and vegetables and leftovers during the week.
My favorite part? The lids are ALL the same size! GENIUS! You never have to hunt for the right size of lid (that’s somehow always missing) again. The lids lock in place so nice and easy. I’m ordering another set!
Did I mention they are also stackable? Couldn’t love them more.
So that’s it! My five organizing solutions from QVC. I couldn’t be happier with all of my product selections and about the new organized solutions for my home! Which one was your favorite?
Checking all of these problem areas off of my list motivates me to tackle more! I’m not ready for the angels to leave just yet. :)
