I love having succulents in my home, but for some reason if they’re in my bedroom I forget to take care of them.

I believe 100% in being organized, but I also believe in not spending a lot of money. Take a look at how quickly and simply I organize my home. Get ideas on how to organize your home the inexpensive way with baskets, bins, and totes.
You can pick up a variety of baskets, bins, and totes almost anywhere. Some of my favorite places are Ross, thrift stores and Home Goods. You can even find smaller ones at the dollar store. Look for the best varieties in the late Winter and early Spring. The best thing about organizing with baskets is that you can take them with you when you move and use them again at your new place. They are also easy to move from room to room if your needs change.

I’m sharing How to Paint an Accent Wall or in this case a small inset area above the fireplace.

Let’s talk about Organizing the Trunk or back of your car, van or SUV for Summer. My goal is to have things ready and organized for playing at the park, impromptu picnics, day hikes, last minute shopping or anything else that might pop up on a nice Summer day. I like to use these totes for organizing the trunk because they’re really inexpensive and sturdy plus they’re easy to clean. They run about $6 each and are easy to find at stores like Target or WalMart. I have 3 of them I keep in the back of the van. They fit almost perfectly across the back.
