Smart Home Organization Tips That Homeowners Must Know

Are you looking for good and easy ways to organize your home? Then this one is just right for you!

While a home organization is not an easy task, it can be bearable if you know what to do and where to start. The following tips and tricks can surely help you save a considerable amount of time, effort, and money. Check them out!

Make organization faster by setting rules about what you should keep and what must be discarded. For example in your closet, pick out the clothes that you haven’t used for a year or so. Place them in a box and decide later where it should go (donate or trash). Tip: In your closet, hang everything backward on a rod and once you wear something, hang it the usual way. After a year, pick out the clothes that are still hanging backward and get rid of them.

Most homeowner’s solution to a cluttered home is storage space. Some even buy baskets, containers, and hooks to accommodate the mess. This is quite wrong as it didn’t weed out the root cause of the problem. Instead of buying new containers (which could eat up some space), eliminate the things that are cluttering your home.

Although there’s a roaring campaign about going paperless to minimize the mess, this won’t happen anytime soon. So to avoid a paper pile up (magazines, leaflets, utility bills, etc.) make it a daily habit of throwing away papers that don't have value anymore.

If you are keeping something old because of sentimental reasons, take a picture of it and store it in your basement or attic. Don’t let it eat some precious floor space of your home. Better yet, donate the item to someone who might be able to use it. Might be hard to do but if you are serious about your home organization project, then this must be done.

Flat surfaces can become an instant drop zone for clutter. For example your dining table, it can accumulate an enormous amount of junk pretty quickly. The solution – put a flower arrangement in the middle along side with place settings. This can prevent your family members from dropping any stuff at it.

Use your calendar wisely. Schedule everything which includes home cleaning. Having a very well organized time and schedule can seriously help with your home organization project.

Lastly, don’t procrastinate. If you postpone tasks that will only take a few minutes to finish, it adds up, and you’ll get overwhelmed by it at the end of the day. Do anything that needs to be done when you have the time for it.

With these tips, a home organization can be pretty easy and quick.

Nichole Nordeman Every Mile Mattered

Mom Among Chaos received this CD in exchange for my honest opinion. All thoughts are my own. Nichole Nordman Every Mile Mattered. This blog contains affiliate links. #flyby #everymilemattered
I've been into contemporary Christian music for about five years and never have heard of Nichole Nordeman. Well, if I did like a piece of her's I didn't ever remember hearing her name.

I love finding new artists to fall in love with so I couldn't wait to pop Every Mile Mattered into my CD player while driving my kids to their many appointments. I think you might like her if you're a fan of Plumb or Evanescence. Keep reading to find out what I thought and how YOU can win your own copy of the CD.

Nichole Nordeman Every Mile Mattered

Nichole Nordeman has a voice that captures your attention and makes you want to listen closely to every note that comes out of her angelic voice. She reminded me of Plumb & Evanescence with maybe a little Dixie Chicks threw in. Yes, I know that's a crazy mix, but I can assure you that Nichole Nordeman's voice is uniquely her own.

I've only listened to the whole album once, so I need a few more times to hear the words on this soft but strong album. I say soft but strong because her voice is so light, but her words about God are strong.

Nichole Nordeman Every Mile Mattered, giveaway, win, CD, christian, singer, artist, music

If you are a Christian music fan or love any of the artists that mentioned above, I highly recommend picking up this album. I look forward to diving deeper into the music.

You can enter to win Every Mile Mattered! You must live in the continental USA to enter. Only one winner every 30 days. The winner will have 24 hours to respond, or another winner will be selected. Good luck!

Kalahari Waterpark Sandusky Ohio

My family LOVES Kalahari water park Sandusky, Ohio. We've been so many times that I know the water park by heart. My youngest decided to celebrate her birthday early when we landed a deal. The prices during summer seem to skyrocket so finding a deal $200 and under is a bargain.

This year Kalahari has 5 brand new outdoor waterslides. Of course, being the fans that we are we couldn't wait to check them out.

Kalahari Waterpark Sandusky Ohio

Tornado Alley was my favorite of the slides that I rode. It's very intense. I think this is my new favorite ride. This ride has some extreme moments. You experience sudden drops and crazy high swings. All while getting pelted in the face with huge waterfalls. My youngest loved it once I talked her into going on it. This ride has a long line but is entirely worth it.

Stingray will wake you up really quick if you weren't already awake. You dive down a dark tunnel and a fast speed. When you finally see the light again you find yourself skyrocketing up and into a big drop having a zero gravity moment. 

I enjoyed this ride but I loved that tornado alley was more intense!

Sahara Sidewinder is a quick ride that send you up the sides and takes you on surprising dips. It reminds me of Swahilli Swirl!

Serengeti Spinner is a high-speed enclosed waterslide. This slide sends you into loops and then throws you into the pool.

Extreme Rush the floor drops out and you go into a free fall. This is an extreme thrill ride. I always end up with my back scratched on these so I didn't go on it. The lifeguard said if you lay a certain way that you won't end up scratched. This is supposed to be an amazing ride.

Will you Kalahari waterpark Sandusky Ohio's newest outdoor slides?

Detroit Zoo Vitamin Z

I received something of value in exchange for this post. All opinions are my own. This blog contains ads. Detroit Zoo Vitamin Z.
A few months ago I purchased my family a Detroit Zoo membership. When I did, I made a few sneaky mommy trips with a few of my friends to take pictures. Yes, I'm that mom. This weekend the weather and my schedule finally cooperated for mom & daughters day at the Detroit Zoo. Little did my girls know they had been severely lacking Detroit Zoo Vitamin Z. Yes, that's a thing.

Detroit Zoo Vitamin Z

You see the Detroit Zoo Vitamin Z is in my children's blood. They spent every Wednesday night there during the summer months for years when they were smaller enjoying a picnic on the lawn while the live music blew gently in the breeze. My oldest daughter, now 14, would insist on watching the snakes eat their dinner so off we would go to look at the snakes during the concerts.

Faith loves reptiles thanks to her time spent at the Detroit Zoo. Of course, mean mom said no to a pet snake, but she said yes to a crested gecko. Learning to care for different animals has been a great learning experience for my daughter.

Faith hadn't been to the Zoo in about a year so after checking out the new penguin exhibit guess where we spent most of our time? Yes, the reptile area. Of course, my ten-year-old was slightly creeped out, but she warmed up quickly.

So here's the thing. If you live in the Metro Detroit area, you need Detroit Zoo Vitamin Z in your life. 

So, if you visit the Zoo even once a year I highly recommend purchasing a membership. Here's why let's say a family of four visits the zoo for the day with parking. You're looking at about $55 dollars. A family membership that gives you unlimited access to the Detroit Zoo is only $89. You're not only helping support the Zoo, but you're giving your family tons of memories that will last a lifetime. A Zoo Membership also makes a fabulous gift!
