7 maneras de Nifty para colgar y organizar las cosas
I have been bitten by the organizing bug. It all started since moving with only five boxes (really should do a post on that, life changing!). I have learned that it is much easier to organize when you have less stuff. Much more fun too! I found some pretty genius ideas on Pinterest that I had to share. Be sure to click on over to the posts, as most have more great ideas :). You scrappers are going to love this idea! Hang magazines and newspaper from pretty clothes hangers from Better Home And Gardens – they have an entire slideshow of organization ideas! How about you, any great ideas for organizing? Happy Monday friends, here’s to a great week! ~Destri Related:  alexiscolbycarrington

DIY: entrenamiento T-Shirt Every summer for some reason my closet magically seems to be full of unwanted t-shirts. Every single summer... Some may seem old, others too casual, worn out or simply not interesting any more. So I thought that this year perhaps I should look into doing something creative with those that don't tickle my fancy. I was lucky enough to stumble upon a fantastically creative way of up-cycling t-shirts over at You basically take any t-shirt chop a little here and there and tadaaaa! Afterwards you have a fashionable back baring top that is perfect for working out or a simple yet chic outfit on those hot summer days :) You will need around 20 minutes, a pair of scissors and a t-shirt. Simple fast and fabulous :) xoxo Organizing: Cigar Boxes I love having my own little studio, but it’s quite chaotic most of the time because of all of the stuff I tend to hoard. Vintage hardware, old cigar labels, broken jewelry parts, and all kinds of pieces and parts I pick up at flea markets and thrift stores that I know I can find a use for one day in a craft project. But storing supplies in plastic bins out in the open isn’t too attractive, aesthetically speaking. I have plenty of plastic storage, but those are tucked away in my cupboards. My hook on storing with vintage cigar boxes came the day I found and clipped out an image from a magazine of a large parts cabinet crafted to hold around 36 same size cigar boxes, acting as drawers. Thinking I could create my own folk art organizing cabinet, I started collecting cigar boxes over the years to make a cool storage piece. Enter: Label Holder Hardware with Pulls. He mentioned after the sale that they had belonged to his father. I’m now in the process of filling the boxes and labeling each.

7 JEWELRY STORAGE TIPS I recently moved so I took the time to organize all my jewelry. Here are a couple tips and ideas! 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. Thanks for reading! DIY Suds Update: If using a HE washer, our readers have suggested throwing the mix directly into the wash load, rather than the soap dispenser. Please read through the comments for more Q&As, as you have all been so wonderful to share your experiences! And if you’re looking for even more information on our DIY suds, see our sudsy update to this post, right here. The last time I purchased laundry soap, I threw a fit in the cleaning aisle and spent the drive home moaning over the high coast of detergent. I always knew I was thrifty, but even that took me by surprise. Since then, Scott buys the suds. First mentioned here (whew, I was on a rant that day), I decided to heck with it all, and I went and did something about it. I kid you not, the steps are even easier than getting in your car, driving to the store, and buying the 3 ingredients. While we could’ve left the mixture in the tupperware, I spruced up the display by using an on-hand Ball jar instead. Ooh, and here are some random mentionables.

bored AT WORK DIY: "TRAINING" CHOPSTICKS This tutorial is for all the people out there who don't really know how to use chopsticks. I've gotten tired of being the one person who eats with a fork at the Japanese restaurant, apparently it's amusing to other people. Why not make is even more amusing and make your own "training" chopsticks? You can fit in with everyone else and not have to feel like you are doing magic tricks to pick up a piece of chicken. You will need: chopsticks(in the paper sleeve) and a rubber band or a hair tie? Fold your sleeve in half (long ways) 3 times. After you've folded 3 times, fold into thirds the other way. Take your rubber band and wrap it around the chopsticks, underneath the paper, one time. Waaaaalaaaa.

No Purchase Necessary Junk Drawer Organization Everyone’s got one (or more), but no one likes to share it! Well, I’m going to! Part of my commitment to change is organization, and our two kitchen junk drawers are my number one offenders at the moment! So, I did the most logical thing and dumped both of them out on our family room floor and decided to just start from scratch! After dumping it all out, I categorized all the contents and separate them into separate piles. After I paired items down, put misplaced items in their proper home (in other rooms- mainly the office and garage), and just flat-out got rid of trash, I was able to refill the empty drawers. Items Needed: Extra rubberized carpet pad (top left corner of the picture above)Miscellaneous small tupperwareRubberbands How I used it all: Here’s the final product! I honestly had been delaying this project because I thought I needed some fancy drawer organizer to be effective, but in the end, it turned out that I had everything I needed on-hand! I’m linking up…
