Organization Mission

How am I just now finding the blog I heart Organizing?

It is incredible! I spent a good 2 hours reading it over the weekend and getting inspired!

IHeart Organizing

Look at her Lego storage. LOOK!

Then she has this great post on how to organize and save kids hand me down clothes. I should really get crackin' on that.
Our 1 yr old has obviously outgrown some things that I want to save. Her system is a lot better than my "throw it in a random box and shove in the closet" method. You should see how much she can fit in ONE of those drawers!

Now I'm all fired up to organize this house! Starting with my donation items first. I hit jackpot at a few yard sales this summer and bought clothes for our church's back-to-school clothes giveaway.

Problem is that i have to STORE them until next August. I bought myself one of these:image from

A space bag. I think I got the "sweater" storage one. Going to try it out today and see if it is all that it is cracked up to be!

After that I am tackling our medicine storage.

If you saw my pantry you would tell me I should start there. Well. To that I say "No one starts mountain climbing by going to Everest!"

I have to start smaller, with goals that are achievable and won't burn me out. Baby steps.

If you don't hear from me soon, call for help, I may be trapped inside the space bag.

  1. Good luck with your organizing projects, baby steps is the way to go. You're funny... trapped inside your space bag, lmao!

    I love "I Heart Organizing" too, it's addicting!

  2. I know - I LOVE her site. I used to think that I was the odd one out for loving stores like Office Depot and the Container Store and Storables. I can spend hours in there.

    But I've since realized there's a whole world full of people who love their label makers. LOL

  3. I love the idea of separating the lego's by color!! Really neat!

  4. Isnt her site just amazing. I get so inspired reading her blog but then.... something happens to distract me, so I dont get much further beyond inspired :) xx

  5. iheartorganising!! Amazing sight. Picked up loads of great tips from there. Love your enthusiasm too -let us know how you get on!!

  6. Thanks! I needed a little motivation on getting more organized! I love doing it, I just don't seem to keep it up. ~ Kristen, Celebrate Every Day With Me

  7. I just helped my sisiter sort through 18 large bins of clothes all filled with different sizes. She has a 7 yr old girl, a 2 yr old girl, and another little girl due at the end of April. I also have a 6 yr old girl and give my sisiter her hand me downs if she likes them. I wish we had seen this when I initally tried to help her store her clothes for hand me downs. Awesome tips!!!


Happy to have you here at the Zucchini Summer Blog! :)
