by Erin Doland on May 21, 2011 Reader Shannon submitted the following to Ask Unclutterer: Do you have any tips for people with ADHD that go beyond the stuff you see or hear all the time in other publications? Work is pretty okay except for the whole “getting started” part, but my home is the tough area. I am one of those people who has to see something to remember I have it but that keeps things cluttered.
I’m not sure how I discovered this awesome collection of packaging templates but I’m glad I did! Some professor or student at a japanese univeresity was nice enough to share all their packaging templates with the world! These are a few of my favorites and you can see all of them on their website .

Have you ever used Mod Podge? It’s only the most awesome decoupage medium in the whole world – at least according to me! Hello by the way. I’m Amy from Mod Podge Rocks , and I blog every single day about the topic of glue.
It’s pretty hard to wallpaper an entire room on $30 (although there’s no doubt some of you thrifty DIYers could make it happen). But there’s another way: Cover your walls with something free. There are lots of choices: Book pages, tissue paper, sheet music, newspaper, maps. If it’s made of paper, you can probably use Mod Podge or a watered-down white glue mixture to attach it to your walls like wallpaper. And if that paper is already laying around, this is a darn right cheap project!
Courtesy of Snowpocalypse 2011, I was stuck indoors for a few days in a row and starting to go a little stir crazy. In an effort to keep my sanity, I decided to tackle the empty wall in my kitchen! This is the empty wall that has previously housed holiday-themed decor: I'm not a big Valentine's Day person (I know, I know), and I wasn't sure if I wanted to do a Spring theme, so I thought maybe I would do something a little more year-round friendly. So I got out the Silhouette and some black adhesive vinyl, and started on my new wall decal!
I made this fleece hat for Kaylee this afternoon. She needed one with some sort of straps to keep it on her head! She is getting better with keeping accessories on, but still sometimes thinks it is fun to throw them out of the stroller and watch them as we keep walking and they fade into the background.
As you all know, we moved into our new place in Denver sans practically ALL of our apartment décor, and the white walls in our apartment have slowly started to feel like padded white walls – if you catch what I’m throwin’. I feel crazy. The kind with stirs.

Eeeee! I’ve been saving bread tags (those little plastic clips that keep your bread bag closed) for months just waiting for Halloween to get close. I’ve had this craft idea for these little monsters in my head for a while and finally got the chance to make them today. You could probably make them in much simpler fashion, but I love adding little details, embellishing, etc. So here’s how I made these recycled bread tag monsters if you are interested :) UPDATED 12/21/10 – Just a quick update to add in here that I have posted a how-to for recycled bread tag snowmen if you are interested in seeing those.

I got a little tape-happy the other day. This project is like the envelope gift bag tutorial from awhile back, but approximately 200% cuter due to fancy tape. These little gift sacks could be used as party favors filled with candy or as packaging for wee presents. You'll need an envelope, decorative tape, and a scissors.
I love spiky starburst shapes, so I attempted a version of the traditional Polish porcupine ball. Here's how to make this cool 3D ornament—great for Christmas or decorating any time. I can imagine jumbo sized versions hanging at parties or weddings. They take awhile, though, so you'd better start making them five years before you plan to get married.
