Maximize Your Kitchen Storage #Giveaway

Right now, my home is under construction in a few areas, one is my kitchen. I literally have had to remove everything in my cabinets and kitchen in order to get ready for the demo that is going to begin there. Having all my cabinets empty is so strange. I should take a photo because it is a rare thing. Normally, I think of ways to maximize storage of my plastic containers, pot lids, spices and more.

Are you looking for ways to organize, condense and maximize your storage space? If so, I just discovered some great products from YouCopia.

I knew I had to have the StoraStack because I really need to organize my food storage containers. I used to spend so much time digging around the drawer looking for the right lid.

The StoraStack smartly organizes food containers in your kitchen drawer. Two clip dispensers can be positioned as needed to hold two container stacks in place. Individual slots keep matching lids upright so everything stays tidy and easy to find.

My next issue was pot lids sliding around in my roll outs. That is why I like the StoreMore Lid Holder.

The StoreMore Lid Holder organizes all of your pot and pan lids in the cabinet or pantry. Strong wire dividers can be adjusted to keep lids upright, separated and easy to retrieve. Save space and reduce clutter by storing lids vertically!

Last issue for me was how to deal with all the spices I have. I have so many spices that the built in spice cabinet is not enough. I ended up using 2 cabinets to store them all. The problem is that smaller spices get lost and so when I saw the spice steps, I knew I had to try them.

The 24-bottle SpiceSteps™ is the easiest, most affordable way to organize spices in the kitchen cabinet. Maximize space with four tiers instead of the standard three. Label the bottle caps with included stickers to quickly find spices.

Are You Storing Your Essential Oils Properly?

I love essential oils and my stash was getting a bit out of control. I needed a place to store it all so the search for a quality essential oil bag started. I recently ordered a Gogobag Essential Oil Case and I am so happy! It is a nice hard shell case with dual zipper closure and carry handle.

It holds 30 bottles of 10ml and 15ml oils according to the manufacturer’s description but it also held 5ml bottles. I love that it holds so many bottles so I can easily store it anywhere and it is effortless now for me to take my oils anywhere. Great when we are traveling too. The cases are black and available with either blue, green or pink accent coloring.

Overcoming Challenges When Designing Your Child’s Room

Designing a child’s room can be a challenge. It can be tempting just to utilize an adult bedroom set for them, especially if you already have one you can use. Using adult furniture sets can present several issues. Often, the furniture is not suitable for children, it may have sharp corners, lack safety features or just be the wrong size to be safe or functional.  Children’s rooms tend to be smaller than what many adult size sets were made for. This can leave a child’s room overcrowded, cramped and lacking in style, functionality and fun!

You might be scratching your head trying to figure out how you can create a child’s room that will be functional, fun, stylish and grow with them.  I am happy to tell you that it’s not so hard.  You might want to take a look  at modular childrens’ bedroom furniture as an option. Modular furniture is the perfect choice when trying to maximize storage and function for kids, even in small spaces.

The versatility of having some pieces with wheels that can be moved when needed and rolled back when not. Modular pieces provide storage for what you need most. Create a unique storage solution for your child’s things by combining cubbies, cubes, shelves, drawers, hooks etc to get exactly what you need. Wardrobe units can be added and are a solution for more than clothing storage, they can be customized to fit many purposes.

Modular pieces also let you work around oddly shaped spaces where more traditional furniture just won’t work. Other advantages are the ability to add  bold punches of color in a drawer or bin that draws the eye and gives the room flair. If your child is old enough, letting him/her plan their room with you and decide on pieces and colors will empower your child and makes them so much more in tune with their room.

Bunk beds or loft beds with desk space underneath  add function and style in any space.  As your child grows, pieces can be added, colors swapped, pieces rearranged  and more to adapt to their changing needs.  Changing the color of walls and textiles will also give the same pieces a totally different feel as your child grows.

If you have a budding artist adding a fold down modular wall cabinet that transforms into an art table with smaller cubbies and drawers above for art supplies would inspire and delight any budding Picasso.

If you have a child collector, there are great options for storing and displaying sports memorabilia, dolls, cars and more. What are your greatest challenges in your child’s room? I would love to hear your thoughts in the comments.

iCube Logo (1)
iCube makes modular storage systems, wall mounted shelves and stackable crates that will help you get organised at home or work.  The highly functioning units are easy to assemble and will complement almost any space or design.   I recently had a chance to try out a four cube unit, 3 fabric drawers and 1 black crate/drawer.  It was easy to put together with no tools needed except a coin.

The four cube unit is customizable you can move the door where you want and put the shelf in whatever cube you want.  I was sent 2 half and 1 full fabric drawers which just pop open out of the package and then you just put the fabric bottom in which stabilizes the drawer.  I put the unit in my studio and it is great for holding some of my autumn photo props on top and in the drawers I have my fabrics, ribbons, trims and other sewing notions.  The full drawer on the bottom provides great storage too.  I love this for storing craft supplies and props.

The unit is sturdy and my husband and I carried it from downstairs where we assembled it to my studio on the third floor.  We took it up 2 flights of stairs and it was extremely stable and secure.  I also received a black iCube crate or drawer and that was a cinch to put together.  I can use it interchangeable with the full fabric drawer or move the fabric drawer up to the cube over the door and slide the crate in the bottom cube.  Hey, I just realized I do not have a picture with that configuration so I will take one and add it so you can see how it looks.

BOX4BLOX, Award-Winning Toy Storage Solution for Legos Review & Giveaway!!!

If You Are Sick Of That LEGO DISASTER ZONE You’ll Love the BOX4BLOX!  BOX4BLOX, the award-winning toy storage solution for organizing and storing Lego. BOX4BLOX was voted “Best New Home Organizing Product of the Year” by National Association of Professional Organizers BOX4BLOX eliminates all the hassles of keeping Legos organized in the home and actually makes clean up time fun. BOX4BLOX works like a coin sorter, grading the Legos through a series of different sized grids, so the Lego bricks end up in a tray with similar sized blocks, with all those hard to find tiny bits and pieces ending up in the bottom tray. No need to tip the Legos all over the Floor BOX4BLOX is an attractive ten and a quarter inch cube manufactured from ABS plastic, the same high quality plastic used to manufacture Lego. BOX4BLOX holds approximately 1500 – 1700 Lego bricks. BOX4BLOX is not only for the kids as Moms love the BOX4BLOX, making it a practical gift idea for every boy and girl who loves Lego. BOX4BLOX is made in the USA and available exclusively online.  You can purchase the Box4Blox at Amazon.com.

It seems as parents one of the things we find ourselves talking about with other parents, is how to keep our kid’s toys organized.  The worst kinds of toys to keep neat and organized are those with many pieces and different sizes.  Legos are lots of fun for kids and a very creative toy but their pieces can be tiny and are easily lost under couches, furniture, or even fall victim to the vacuum. Storing them all in a large tub keeps them contained, but makes it hard to find the different size pieces, and the smallest pieces just seem to disappear.  I was recently asked to review the Box4Blox and I gladly accepted.  The Box4Blox consists of 4 stacking bins and a top.  Only the bottom green bin has a solid bottom, the other three are sifters with a grid on the bottom with different size openings.  The red has the smallest openings, followed by the blue and then yellow.  Using this system will allow you to place Legos in the top stacked bin and gently shake and tilt and the Legos will be sifted and sorted into like sizes.  Now, your child can easily know that the smallest pieces, the little headlights, steering wheels etc. will be in the bottom bin.  The Box4Blox is a great way to easily sort and store your child’s Legos.  Take it from this mom, if you are looking for a better way to store Legos, check out the Box4Blox.
