Updated to add: This giveaway is now over. The winners are #30 Joanna, #135 Katie, #89 Shana, #114 Smellyann and #62 MaryJane
This past week I’ve had so much fun checking out the newly re-designed Better Homes and Gardens site. Talk about organizing eye candy…seriously I got lost on there soaking it all in. I’m such a visual girl and as a result am so inspired by big, bright, colorful pictures (it’s also why I love Pinterest so much). The BH&G site has a TON of organizing tips, printables, plans, videos and of course pictures which are just stunning. The new design also includes a new slideshow feature and an easy to use navigation bar and search tool.
So today I thought I’d share some of my favorite BH&G organizing finds with you (pictures used with permission of course).
A neat way to label your dollar store baskets:
Fun portable storage:
Personalized buckets for kids or pets:
I love this idea of using a hanger to hold magazines. I’ve got a spot perfect for it on the side of my bathroom counter right beside the toilet :) I’ll throw up a Command Hook to hold it and I’ll be all set!
So many fun and free printable storage labels (when over there be sure to click on view all thumbnails to see them all):
Love this ottoman storage for all the gaming stuff:
Another neat bucket idea for organizing school papers:
Dressers are so functional…why not one in your entryway:
Month-by-month storage project guide (including printable):
I also took their fun organizational personality quiz. I don’t think it’s any surprise that this is what my result was:
You are the Librarian. You like everything in its place.
Detailed and a taskmaster Energetic A perfectionist, sometimes to a fault
Shocking I know! :) Although I’m definitely what you would call a recovering perfectionist. I’ve learned to let many things go.
The fine folks at BH&G were very kind to offer up FIVE 1-year Better Homes and Gardens magazine subscriptions as giveaway prizes for FIVE of my lucky readers.
To enter, please go to BH&G and take their organizational personality quiz (it takes maybe 30 seconds to do)
and then come back here and leave a comment with what you are. They did not ask me to do this, I just thought it would be neat to see the variety of answers. Entries must be in by Wednesday, June 1st at 2:00 pm PST to be eligible. This one is sadly only open to US residents though (sorry!).
