Happy New Year!

Recycled crafts:  organizing fabricsA new day and a new year.  Like everyone else, my thoughts turn toward goals and resolutions.  Getting organized is at the top of my list this year, so I turned to one of my favorite sites--Pinterest, of course--to see what others have done to reach this goal.

First up is an idea that has changed the way I look at my fabric--literally!

Cottage Mama uses fabric organizers to arrange her fabric.  There are several versions of the organizer out there--from diy with cardboard to the actual thing you have to (yikes!) spend money on.  I took the middle road and bought comic book cardboard, which is cardboard made to be placed in a bag with a comic book to keep it standing up straight on a shelf.  I can't remember where I found out about it--on Pinterest I'm sure.  :)

Next is an idea that has changed the way I think about cabinet doors.
Recycled crafts:  organizing the cabinets
Kelly, over at The Complete Guide to Imperfect Homemaking, actually made this pocket organizer!  I did mine the cheap and easy way and bought one at the dollar store.  It totally fit my bathroom sink cabinet door, and I wish I would have bought at least 10 more!

On to the next idea, which was a "duh" moment for me:

Brittany at decided to deck the inside of her bathroom cabinet with magnetic strips for bobby pins.  I am always scrounging around for those things in the morning!   

I am always seeing ways to use tension rods to organize, but this one from jengrantmorris  made me add them to my thrift store list.

Finally, the BIG idea, courtesy of  This is at the top of my "big project" list, and I can't wait until I have a couple of days set aside to get it done.  Can you imagine the amount of space this will save?  I can, and I can also imagine being able to park my car in the garage again!

Until next time, have a great day and Happy New Year!
