Hello! Happy Friday to you. I hope you are enjoying a glorious fall day wherever you are. I thought I’d share my most recent purge pile with you and a few of my current favorite things.
Last weekend was a super busy one as we moved my son from an upstairs bedroom to one in the basement. He actually took over my middle son’s old room. Well with any big project like that there is going to be a big purge pile at the end of it. And boy was there ever! As we were sorting through all my sons stuff he decided what to keep and what to let go of. He did great! A new room, a fresh start. A huge bag of outgrown clothes, books and room decor went to our local thrift store. Oh and a few of my own things thrown in there too of course.
My son was able to move into a much bigger bedroom with way less stuff. What a great way to start a new school year. I’m really proud of him.
Organizeme Storage Bins:
Okay here in Canada we have a website called The Shopping Channel, similar to QVC. A few weeks ago I got sucked into buying the showstopper. I couldn’t resist! Yep totally broke my own organizing rule (again!) and bought these babies without knowing how I was going to use them. Ooops. But come on! The color, the dual zippers, the peep holes. Gah I just had to have them. I feel like I should apologize for being so weak, ha! Unfortunately I could only find a link to them on HSN for you.
I shared more on Instagram stories (check my highlights under products) if you want to see more about them. Stay tuned on how I’m going to use them in my home. You know I’ll figure it out.
Logo on pencil case:
Another thing I’m totally smitten with this week is this lovely gift I received from Laura at I Heart Planners. Laura is the organizer of the Get Organized HQ event that happened this week. She sent me a whole box of goodies (including one of her planners) as a thank you gift for speaking at this online event. One of the gifts, a pencil case, was so special to me because it had my logo on it! Y’all I’ve never had my logo on a product before so it really touched me. Gosh I love a personalized gift!!
By the way, today is the last day of the live Get Organized HQ online event. However even if you missed the event, I have good news for you! You can still catch all of the sessions with the All Access Pass. This pass includes lifetime access to all 46 sessions plus a list of other great bonuses: full transcripts, audio downloads for listening on the go, a one page cheat sheet of every session so you can grab the highlights, plus printables, ecourses, and ebooks from the speakers!

“People want more room,” he says, “But it’s crazy how much space people devote to storing bulk purchases from Costco. Do you need more storage, or fewer massive shampoo bottles that you won’t use?”
