Five Finds to Get You Organized

I always spend January trying to get organized after the hectic holidays. In addition, I always look for new ideas or organization products to reach that goal. So I wanted to share my five finds to help you get organized in 2018.

Keeping Track of To Dos

I’ve fallen in love with the Blackboard by Boogie Board. Insert the templates for a weekly organizer, a notepad, grids, or just a blank sheet. Alternatively, insert your own document, like a photo or architectural plans, or lay the board over an iPad. You can take notes or make suggestions on a document without impacting the original! Then use the free Blackboard app to save, organize, search or share your work. So, you can remember the shopping list you jotted down when actually in the store.

Despite looking like a tablet, there is nothing to charge, plug in or turn on. Just replace a small button cell battery on occasion (the product sheet says 5 years). Clear the entire surface with the touch of a button or erase using the included stylus. The stylus is also magnetic so it grips to the Board. Thus, keeping it safe (and not lost!) While large, it is very thin so the board is easy to mount on a wall for home organization. Its slim style also makes it easy to tuck into a laptop bag for on-the-go use. I found it is also great to entertain the kids!

You can find it here on (affiliate) Amazon.

Toy Storage Ideas

Tackling the toys is always on my organization to do list after the holidays. One of my favorite ways to keep things organized is this storage station.

There are six removable cases allow kids to store a variety of toys, books and coloring supplies. The in-molded handle makes it easy to carry from room-to-room. I like the larger drawers rather than the little compartment storage options. Larger drawers enables kids to get a see what they have, and keeps more sets together with a larger drawer. Get one for all the coloring supplies. Then get another one for Legos!

Shopkins Storage

My daughter and son have lots of accessories for their toys. Whether it is Barbie shoes or a mini-lightsaber from mini-figures, they can get easily misplaced.

I have found that using a hanging jewelry organizer is great for toys too. This is especially great for storing Shopkins or those other mini-blind bag toys. The clear vinyl pockets enables kids to see what they have at a glance. This one from (affiliate) Amazon has 80 pockets!
