The following is a guest post with 4 tips for kitchen organizing using canisters from regular contributor, Yuni at Love Your Abode.

4 Tips for Kitchen Organizing Using Canisters at I'm an Organizing Junkie blog

The kitchen is naturally the heart of our home and the place where I spend the most time. Since I spend a lot of time in here, I like to have things in a certain way so that it’s easily accessible yet organized and tidy. One of my favorite ways to organize and display everyday kitchen items is through the use of canisters. Today, I’m sharing some simple ways to utilize canisters in your home to organize and store everyday items.

4 Tips for Kitchen Organizing Using Canisters

Tip 1: Store your most used ingredients for easy access.

We do a lot of baking and cooking in our kitchen and I use these glass canisters to display some of the foods we eat all the time. This includes my homemade pancake mix, oatmeal, quinoa and paleo chocolate chips. It looks pretty displayed there on the counter and it makes for easy access when we are cooking with those ingredients. I added chalkboard labels so it can easily be changed.

Tip 2: Store unlikely items like cupcake liners, cookie cutters, party supplies, etc.

Another way to utilize canisters is holding baking items like cupcake liners. Sadly, I have shattered a couple of those glass lids so instead of tossing them out all together, I store items that don’t necessarily need a top. This is all placed in the cabinet right above those other glass canisters since all of my baking supplies are in one area. You could also store other baking items like cookie cutters and candles.

Tip 3: Contain cooking utensils

Canisters are also a great way to hold your cooking tools like spatulas and wooden spoons. This looks clean and pretty on the counter because of the monochromatic color scheme. I go back and forth from keeping these out on the counter to storing them all underneath my bottom cabinet.

Tip 4: Store foods such as cookies, coffee, tea, etc.

Some canisters come with a rubber lid so this makes for better food storage. I keep these marbled canisters on the counter to hold our Christmas cookies for my kids and guests. I love how pretty and functional they are. They also make great storage containers for coffee and tea.

Some other ideas could be to use them to hold flowers like a vase or hold art supplies like crayons and markers.

Hey friends, I thought I’d drop in to chat today. I want to share my Christmas playlist with you as well. I know everyone is busy with the holidays now in full swing and I don’t really want to add to your stress by giving you more things to do. I’m sure not to many of you are thinking about organizing your house at this point although if you have company coming maybe you are. It’s not too late to walk around the house with a garbage bag collecting things for donation. I’ve been purging this month and as new things have come in, I’ve had to let some things go. Here are my December purge piles so far.

Christmas decorations no longer used

A big bag of games no longer played with and a box of kitchen stuff

Fridge/Pantry Challenge:

There is one thing I think everyone should do this week that will take about 15-20 minutes and help you out immensely. Open up your fridge and take some time to clean that baby out in preparation for loading it all back up again for Christmas. Old leftovers, expired condiments, wilting veggies, toss, toss, toss. Give the shelves a nice wipe down and you are going to feel like you are on top of the world. Whoot, you got this! This holiday has nothing on you. You’ll be feeling so motivated, you are going to look around the kitchen looking for something else to attack. The pantry, do the pantry! Oh my goodness, those stale crackers that have been sitting there for ages, the expired hard as a rock granola bars, the old marshmallows from days gone by, toss, toss, toss. Girl, you are on a roll!! Look at that pantry with those empty spaces all ready for the holiday sweets and treats. So that’s my little challenge to you today. If you get it done, be sure to leave a comment telling me how great you feel! :)

Letting Go:

We are only 11 days from Christmas and at this point I start letting some of the things on my list go. There really is only so much time on our hands and I don’t want to spend the next two weeks stressed. So I take a hard look at what absolutely has to get done and what I can do to give myself some grace. For instance, since I eat Paleo I have no choice but to make my food from scratch but I don’t have to make the ornaments I was hoping to make for gifts. Yes I really wanted to do it and I’ll be sad not to, especially since I have all the supplies bought, but it’s not critical and there’s always next year. I have to be realistic with my time and prioritizing within that time available so I’m not making myself and my family crazy. What is a priority for me is hanging out with my kids that are coming home from college for the holidays.

As someone who lives with a chronic illness, stress and worry is toxic for me (for everyone in fact!) and has the potential to cause my disease to flare. I definitely don’t want that to happen. And while I can’t always change when stressful situations will arise, I can change the way I react to those situations. For instance, I have no control over the fact that two of my contributors have to step down after this month but worrying about it won’t bring me new contributors, it’ll only bring me stress. So instead of dwelling on it, I will turn it over to God and pray for His direction. I’m open to whatever He has in store for me. And in the meantime, I’m going to savor the season and the beauty that comes when my house is full of laughter once again. Oh I can hardly wait!

Grey Hair Update:

So as many of you know, I’ve been growing out my grey hair. In fact it’s been exactly one year since I last dyed it. And boy is it a process. I’ve had good days and I’ve had bad days but I’ve manged to persevere through the days where I’m feeling less than stellar. I’m actually liking the grey, it’s the half and half that I could live without. I have also discovered that grey hair growth is fascinating to many and the exposure and attention sometimes makes me uncomfortable. It’s a feeling of being less put together somehow, like I’ve left the house with only half of a face of makeup on or something. It’s the strangest adjustment and the longest of transitions when you have hair that grows as slowly as mine does. I’ve kept it fairly short and that has helped. It also helps to keep it soft and shiny and the Aveda Blue Malva Shampoo has been a lifesaver for that. Anyone else in the middle of the grey grow out process?

It’s impossible to take a good selfie, sorry I tried.

Christmas Playlist:

Want to listen to a great collection of Christmas music? I shared earlier this year on my 2017 Christmas Gift Guide post that I have an obsession with Christmas music. For those that don’t know I also have a Spotify Playlist with all my Christmas favorites that I like to share here with you each year. I just added this year’s favorite songs that you might like. Johnny Reid’s, I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day, still holds top spot though :) You will need Spotify (free) to listen below. Enjoy!

Basket of Fun Giveaway:

And finally just a reminder that you’ve still got time to enter to win this fun basket of goodies that I’ve enjoyed putting together for one of you to win. You can enter RIGHT HERE.

Merry Christmas Basket of Fun Giveaway!

I’d love to hear if you tackled my challenge today and one thing you are letting go of this season.

Menu Plan Monday for the week of Dec 11/17 - weekly dinner inspiration to help you get dinner on the table each night with less stress!

Welcome to Menu Plan Monday!

Y’all. My kids are going to be home soon and I can’t even stand the wait. The countdown is on! I’m praying the weather cooperates so they can get home safely as they both will be driving. I pray this for everyone that is traveling this season.

This week I want to get my menu nailed down for Christmas Eve and Christmas Dinner. Holidays can get a little complicated with me eating Paleo. We always do our turkey (or chicken depending on the year) Paleo friendly but then I usually do a variety of sides, some Paleo, some not, just because everyone has their favorites. So not only is a menu plan necessary to help me keep it all organized but I also need to schedule in when I will make all these things as well. If you’d like to read my step by step guide for Christmas menu planning you can check it out RIGHT HERE. I’ll share my holiday menu plan with you next week.

Also if you haven’t had a chance to enter my Merry Christmas Basket of Fun giveaway yet, you can do that RIGHT HERE. I’ve been getting great feedback about it, thank you!

Here’s what we’ll be eating this week:

My Weekly Menu Plan:

Monday: Paleo Roasted Butternut Squash Soup

Tuesday: Slow Cooker Spaghetti Squash & Meatballs

Wednesday: Honey Lime Sesame Paleo Chicken Wings served with Healthy Green Smoothies

Thursday: Leftover buffet

Friday: Pizza Party Friday Night with 5 minute homemade pizza dough and for me 3 Ingredient Paleo Pizza Crust

Saturday: Sheet Pan Flank Steak with Garlic Roasted Potatoes

Sunday: YOYO (you’re on your own!)

Have a wonderful week everyone!!

And speaking of cleaning, have you ever tried these dish cloths? They are absolutely fantastic! They don’t get stinky which makes me happy. I get them from a little kitchen boutique and haven’t found them online to buy.

The following is a guest post about 5 ways to get ready & prepare for 2018 from regular contributor, Kristin at The Gold Project.

Be Organized: 5 Ways to Get Ready & Prepare for 2018 at I'm an Organizing Junkie blog

I am still amazed that 2017 is almost over. It seems like the year just started and now, I am trying to get my things in order for another new year. There are some steps that I take in December to get ready for the new year and I wanted to share how I will prepare for 2018 with you today.

5 Ways to Prepare for 2018

Print Monthly Bill Tracker

If I was asked to name my #1 organizing tool, besides my planner, my monthly bill tracker would be it, hands down. I created this document several years ago and it has truly been a lifesaver. Every time I get paid, I pull out my bill tracker before I pay my bills. It has all of my bills listed under the pay period that I pay them. When I pay a bill, I put a check mark in the box under that particular month.

This document keeps me on track and reassures me that every bill has been paid for that particular pay period.

If you are interested in downloading this document and using it, feel free to click here.

Clean Out All File Folders

I don’t know about y’all, but throughout the year, my file folders can get pretty full of papers. Even though I try to shred bills after they have cleared the bank, I still manage to have a few papers lingering around.

So, I like to pull all of my file folders out of my filing cabinet and go through each one of them. Some of the papers will make it to my Emergency and Home binders and the others will get shredded.

Be Organized: 5 Ways to Get Ready & Prepare for 2018 at I'm an Organizing Junkie blog

File and/or Throw Away Old Receipts

My receipt storage is a two part system. I have a file folder that I use as a temporary holding spot. I will put receipts in this folder when I don’t have time to take out my permanent storage system.

My permanent receipt storage system is an accordion file that I purchased from Wal-Mart and the tabs are alphabetized. I will file receipts that I need to keep for an extended amount of time and they are filed by store name. For example, anything I purchase from Wal-Mart gets filed in the “W” file. I have used this system for over five years and I still love the way I have it set up.

At least twice a year, I will go through my black accordion file and clean out all of the receipts I do not need anymore. Then, I will transfer receipts from my temporary file folder into the accordion file. So, the end of the year is one of the times I complete this task.

Set Next Year’s Goals

Every year, I like to sit down and create a set of goals for the new year. These goals are related to all aspects of my life; personal, home, and blog. Creating goals for the new year keeps me on track and motivates me to get everything done that needs to be done that year.

Below are the goals I created for 2017.

Start Gathering Tax Information

It is never too early to start getting your tax information together. I know that a lot of it has to be mailed to you through your work place or mortgage company, but you can go ahead and collect some of it.

This time of year, I will pull out my tax binder and printable from the last year. Then, using a new tax checklist, I will fill out what documents I need for tax season. Feel free to download a copy of the pdf for your own household.

Be Organized: 5 Ways to Get Ready & Prepare for 2018 at I'm an Organizing Junkie blog

After filling out the exact documents I will need to turn in to our accountant, I will gather the documents that I currently have on hand. Then, I will check mark the circle on the right. Usually, the documents I can gather are donation slips, any type of online documents, and my spending tracker (with receipts) for my brand.

What are some things that you do at the end of every year? How will you prepare for 2018?

My name is Kristin and I am a middle school career education teacher by day and a mommy/wife/blogger by night. I am married to my high school sweetheart and we have two loving children. We recently made a life-changing move to Arkansas, so our new house is always under construction. I get excitement out of finding new creative, functional, and cute ways to organize things! I also enjoy writing and documenting life as it happens. So, I put these loves together and created The Gold Project. With the help of my husband, I am attempting to turn our house into a home. So, check out this special place of mine and take this journey with me!

The following is a guest post about 3 ways kids can help organize during the holiday season from regular contributor, Rachel.

Happy December, Friends! You may remember that I’m a big fan of helping my children gain independence when it comes to organization. It seems like a valuable tool that will assist them later in life. It’s also a long teaching process that I don’t expect to happen overnight. That said, there are a few key opportunities in life that help my teaching efforts and the holiday season is a perfect example and time for kids to help organize!

3 Ways Kids Can Help Organize During The Holiday Season at I'm an Organizing Junkie blog

Below are three ways that children can help YOU in your efforts of planning an enjoyable holiday season this year.

3 Ways Kids Can Help Organize During The Holiday Season

1. Let Them Talk about Holiday Memories

I know at first glance, you’ll wonder how an open dialogue about past memories will help you be more organized. It will, keep reading. ;) The holidays are so magical and special for such a variety of reasons, yet the days and hours fill up with commitments in the blink of an eye. For me, over commitments cause palpable stress within our home. Some of my December dates are already full by October! Talking about what memories are special to my children keeps my priorities aligned and my calendar in check. It also gives me opportunity to talk to them about what memories and traditions are special to our family and why.

3 Ways Kids Can Help Organize During The Holiday Season at I'm an Organizing Junkie blog

Some things just aren’t fun to a child but are special to the parents. While, some memories you facilitated for a child are so effortless on your part and yet surprisingly impactful. For example, the countdown calendar, pictured above, I ordered on a whim and it’s been a favorite in our house for years (ordered from Amazon HERE *affiliate link). Other memories kids hold in their heart are special traditions treasured by everyone in the family, regardless of age. The point is, each memory, favorite or not, is worth evaluating it’s priority level on your calendar in efforts of making the overall season more calm.

By all means, keep the special family traditions that infuse your Christmas with meaning! And, of course, keep the traditions your children adore! Most of us love to watch the sparkle in a child’s eye. However, I challenge you to do away with the “fillers” that your kids don’t consider special and cause you unnecessary stress. The best way to take inventory of your family memories and weed out the unnecessary “fillers” is to let them talk.

2. Write a Winter Break Bucket List

This is the first year I’m delegating the list-writing to my oldest daughter. In past years, we brainstormed a few fun ideas to do as a family during her school break. This year, I’m passing the torch and letting her make the list. It’s a simple and fun task for kids to create while helping you organize the upcoming special events.

3 Ways Kids Can Help Organize During The Holiday Season at I'm an Organizing Junkie blog

I think of a bucket list like an itinerary of sorts. Similar to what we do when planning a family vacation over the summer months. This is a winter version and something that gives you insight into your children’s hopes for their holiday free-time. I always give the caveat that not everything may get accomplished but we will do our best within reason. Inevitably, sickness arises or timing isn’t right but having a list like this gives us fun goals.

3. Help Them Contribute to a Toy Donation Pile

This is the perfect time of year to talk about giving, sharing, and simplifying stuff. Organizing the toy zones in your house is an ongoing effort. Why not help your kids learn the art of decluttering before another round of gifts enters your home? You can speak to their hearts about sharing with those in need, and not just the abandoned toys, but genuinely giving to others with a loving heart. In my experience, love is not naturally the first emotion a child has when donating toys or clothing. This may take effort on your part, but is such a valuable lesson to learn at any age.

3 Ways Kids Can Help Organize During The Holiday Season at I'm an Organizing Junkie blog

It also may not go as planned, especially if you’re decluttering toys for the first time in a long while. Go slow and take small steps by addressing one “area” of toys at a time. Start with just one bin or shelf. Coach them through the process of determining if the toys in that bin are something they play with or something another child would utilize better. I heard one Mom explain that she likes to have her children look through a batch of toys and choose their favorites. After setting aside those well-loved toys, she then helps them see the value of donating to someone who would love to play with “such-and-such” things that weren’t first pick.

While the first and second point I gave are more for older kids, this one is doable for even the Littles but it may involve more of your time. That’s okay, especially if you’re like me and hope to teach organization and decluttering skills to your children (grandchildren) over time. Assisting your children in decluttering and donating toys from a few shelves and bins around the house may be something found only on Mom’s holiday bucket list. However, the impact of doing it with them will compound over time. Keeping long-term goals in mind is key to parenting.

Any other ways you can help your children purge their toy piles? Comment below! You never know what may help your fellow readers!! :)

In the professional world, I’m a nurse by trade. But, around our house, I’m known as Mommy to our young daughters. I offer you motivation to keep your home healthy, organized, and welcoming. My goal is to share what I’ve implemented in my home to inspire you with fresh ideas and to encourage you to keep up the good work in yours!

I’m so excited to share my 2017 Gift Guide with you which is a collection of Gifts for Her all under $50. My gift recommendations are things that I have bought for myself or for a gift for someone I love. In other words these are a few of my favorite things that I don’t hesitate to tell you about to help you with your gift purchases this year. You may even find a treat or two to buy for yourself. That’s okay too :)

I absolutely love buying gifts for others. I love the challenge of finding the perfect thing and then I love telling others about my great finds. So now I’m telling you. The links I’ve used are Amazon.com affiliate links (I will make a small commission should you choose to purchase through my links) but for my Canadian readers don’t you worry almost all of these items are also available on Amazon.ca as that is where I purchased them from myself. Just remember prices are always higher in Canada unfortunately :(

Amazon is such a big online place that it can take a long time scrolling through pages and pages of products to find just the perfect gift. Well hopefully I’ll save you a bit of time here. I’ve spent many hours curating this list for you, reading reviews, ordering and returning products. I’m a very picky girl. Crappy products annoy me, these products do not. They are not crappy. They are awesome!

Enjoy my 2017 gift guide and happy shopping my friends!

My 2017 Gift Guide – Gifts for Her Under $50

1) Faux Leather Backpack

This backpack is absolutely stunning. Such amazing quality for this price point. It’s made of patent faux leather with pretty gold-tone zipper pulls. It’s a nice size with plenty of pockets to keep your organized and it even comes with a duster bag. Also comes in other colors.

2) Bottom Dispensing Teapot

Okay how annoying & frustrating is it to use those small little loose tea contraptions to make a cup of tea only to have them not seal properly and get tea leafs in your cup? I know I hate it too. Plus they are a pain to clean out each time. Ain’t nobody got time for that! This tea infuser releases one cup of tea directly into your cup and clean up is a breeze. I’ve had mine for quite a few years now, seriously it’s the best! Combine this gift with some delicious tea and a pretty tea cup and you have yourself one gorgeous gift!

3) Heated Throw

I’ve had my heated throw now for a couple of years and use it every single night to take the chill off. It’s one of my favorite things! It’s not as big as a blanket which I like because it’s easy to drag it around the house with me. I’m always cold so this keeps me all warm and cozy. Seriously what’s not to love about being warm? Yep everyone needs one! In fact my 12 year old loves mine so much that I got him one for Christmas so I don’t have to share mine anymore, whoot!

4) Painless Earbuds

I don’t know if it’s just me but earbuds always hurt my ears. I can never wear them for long because of the pain. Annoying! I got these Yurbuds many years ago and they are the most comfortable pair of earbuds that do not hurt my ears. They stay put too, even while exercising. I’ve had no problems with them at all and think that everyone should know about them. So great!

5) Warm Cozy Socks

So right up there with a nice heated throw for comfort are cozy cupcake socks. Yes these socks are cozy and delightful but they are also adorable because they package up into adorable cupcakes. I mean, come on! Great as a gift on it’s own (maybe package them up with a nice foot lotion) or as a super fun stocking stuffer. They are sold in a set of two, one for you and one for someone else :)

6) RFID Zippered Wallet

Most everyone has a wallet but is it going to protect you against those sneaky crooks out to steal your hard earned moola? This lovely RFID blocking technology wallet will. It comes in a gift box perfect for easy gifting and it also has pretty gold hardware and a removable wrist strap. Available in red, black and blue.

7) Mason Jar Warmer

This is the one product I haven’t personally tried because the price for us Canadians was ridiculously high. Over $100 in Canada but under $20 in the US, umm what? Look how adorable this wax warmer light is, I love it so much. How cute would it be sitting on your kitchen counter smelling your home up beautifully? And a great gift at a great price too! If you live in the US that is. Bummer for me though.

8) Earring Organizer

I love earrings and am constantly switching out the pair I wear on any given day. Usually they end up jumbled up in a dish I keep on top of my dresser but then I found this super clever earring organizer that keeps your earrings organized in book format. Saves so much time trying to find the pair you need in the morning. The holes on the opposite pages are offset so they don’t hit each other and you can store up to 42 pairs. So smart! Available in black, pink and white.

9) Christmas Music

Okay I’m not sure I’ve ever confessed this on the blog but I have a wee obsession with Christmas music. Here’s my collection:

Great Gifts for Her Under $50 - I'm an Organizing Junkie's 2017 Gift Guide and Giveaway!

Yep totally addicted. And totally old school I guess because I still enjoy owning the CD’s. They make me happy and I believe they make a most excellent gift. My latest favorite that just came out this year is Lindsey Stirling’s Warmer in the Winter. It’s so good and festive!

Great Gifts for Her Under $50 - I'm an Organizing Junkie's 2017 Gift Guide and Giveaway!

She’s an amazing violin player and she has some guest singers join her on the CD so it’s not entirely instrumental. It’s beautiful and lovely and a nice addition to a holiday party playing in the background. I heard about Lindsey because she was a contestant on Dancing With the Stars this year (another obsession of mine). She came second but only because she was up against Jordan Fisher who I knew was going to win from the very first show. Great season!

Oh and if you are interested, my ALL-TIME favorite Christmas CD is Johnny Reid’s A Christmas Gift to You CD. Oh my!

10) Snowflake Necklace

If you know someone who loves snow then this is the perfect gift for them. Actually I don’t love snow that much but I do love my snowflake necklace A LOT. I got one for myself and then immediately turned around and ordered another one for someone special in my life. This necklace is gorgeous!

Great Gifts for Her Under $50 - I'm an Organizing Junkie's 2017 Gift Guide and Giveaway!Great Gifts for Her Under $50 - I'm an Organizing Junkie's 2017 Gift Guide and Giveaway!

The price is AMAZING and yet it doesn’t look or feel cheap at all. It comes beautifully packaged in a nice gift box as well. Can’t say enough about this stunner, such a sweet dainty gift!

11) Reusable Makeup Cloths

I’ve been using these reusable makeup cloths to remove my makeup for many months now. They really do work and no chemicals are involved, you only use water. They even take off mascara and eyeliner no problem and my face always feels so good after I clean it at night. Pick up a set for each of your girlfriends or as a stocking stuffer for your teenage daughter.

12) Touch Screen Gloves

I live in a northern part of Alberta, Canada. It’s cold here you all but that doesn’t mean I shouldn’t have cute gloves to keep my hands warm. Not only are these warm and super fuzzy and soft inside, the touch screen fingers actually work so I don’t have to take my gloves off to check my phone. And can we just take a moment to check out that bow? Right?! Totally adorable!

13) Memory Foam Slippers

Are you starting to see a trend here? I like to be warm what can I say! You have no idea how many slippers I tried out that didn’t meet my criteria. I love a great slipper but I don’t want to spend a fortune on them. These Dr. Scholl’s slippers are a nice price and the quality is great. The memory foam is lovely and comfortable to walk on which I really appreciate it. Totally love these slippers and highly recommend!

14) Bite Lipstick Gift Set

This product is a holiday gift set available at Sephora. Bite lipsticks are one of my favorites. I love how easily they glide on and they don’t include any yucky harmful  ingredients. Bite Beauty is crafted with natural and food grade ingredients. They also don’t taste or smell awful either as a result. This sweet Bite Beauty mini lipstick gift set is made up of four lipsticks in four different shades to try out packaged in a pretty red tin. Such a great gift for the beauty lover in your life.

Can you believe we are at the end of November already? Seems crazy to me but I am on the countdown so December really can’t come fast enough for me. My two college kids will be home for the holidays and I just can’t wait! I miss them so much and I just want to hug their little necks. My shopping is done which is good because I took on a big work project to be done over the next few weeks. I’ll tell you all about it soon. But first, this weekend we go out and chop down our Christmas tree. I love getting a real tree. Anyone else? I was also hoping to do a Christmas craft but we’ll see if time allows. We can’t do it all, no matter how much we may want to. At least not without getting stressed or sick. So please keep that in mind and be kind to yourself :)

Today’s post is one I do at the end of every month. It is my pleasure to tell you about my amazing sponsors that I’ve had on the blog with me for YEARS!  As you’ve heard me tell you many times before I absolutely love these companies and totally recommend you check each of them out for their awesome organizing resources. They are all just as passionate about organizing as I am. This makes me happy because I know they can help you get organized or, if you want, help you get others organized. They have a lot to offer to guide you on your organizing journey which is why I love to bring them to your attention at the end of every month. Their products and services can make a big impact on your life by helping you go from cluttered and chaotic to organized and so much less chaotic. Please take a look and don’t hesitate to ask me any questions if you have any. Thanks!!
