May 2018 Monthly Organizing Recap

Hello everyone, welcome to another monthly organizing recap post. Here we are at the end of May and tomorrow is the start of my very favorite month. Yep, June is my birthday month! For those that don’t know, I’m one of those annoying obnoxious people that loves celebrating their birthday year after year. Many think I’m a strange duck for wanting to put so much attention on getting older but why not? Age is just a number after all, it just doesn’t bother me. So let’s celebrate another year alive and have some fun is what I say! Any other June birthdays out there?

The biggest highlight from this past May has to be that it was my blog’s 12th anniversary!! So hard to believe that I’m still here blogging about organizing after all these years. Blogging is sadly not the same as it used to be. Most days it feels like I’m talking to myself now but hopefully I am still making a difference in people’s lives. That’s all that matters to me.

This past month I shared my love of all things yellow and smiley faces too. If you missed it you can read that post HERE. Yellow is such a happy color.

Two other yellow products have been really making me happy this month. I mentioned these yellow lemon salt and pepper shakers briefly in that last post but I wanted to show them close up because seriously how cute are these? My girlfriend gave them to me as an earlier birthday gift a couple of months ago. She got them at Walmart. I now keep them on my windowsill because they make me smile while I’m washing dishes.

And speaking of washing dishes I just updated my first yellow post with this product. The Scrub Daddy sponge (affiliate link) is another yellow favorite of mine. I’ve used this product for years because not only is it fun but it actually works too. I keep them in my kitchen for dishes and in my bathroom for cleaning the tub. The Scrub Daddy is soft in warm water and firm in cool water. It can also be used on non-stick surfaces. Love it!

    I also have a June birthday. This year will be my 68th, I stumbled on your blog a month or so ago, and really enjoy it. Thanks for what you do. I think I am hopelessly disorganized, but I am trying.

    One thing about a June Birthday – I cannot ever remember it raining!
