The Funny Things I Found In My New House

MOVING IS SO FUN! – said no one ever. This part of Texas is a seller’s market right now, so some home sellers are stretching the bounds of common decency because they can get away with it. We looked at a half-million dollar home that had only been on the market for a few days and […]

New House BEFORE Pictures (Finally!)

We moved furniture into this house on Labor Day weekend. In celebration of a month living in our new house in Texas, I thought I’d share the pictures I took the day before the furniture arrived. I call these the “before” pictures. Of all the homes I looked at, I chose this house, so obviously […]

Peek In My Coat Closet

I think the curiosity to see behind the closed doors of our friends and family is natural. Recently I read that 40% of houseguests admit to snooping around the house! As a professional organizer, I think people feel extra curiosity … so I’d up that to 75% at least! Even though I don’t think this closet […]

Peek Inside My Linen Closet {Updated}

I showed my linen closet a long time ago and since it has been updated for a long time now … how about I show you? I’ve always had a thing for laundry baskets. Even though I use only one for my laundry, I have a lot more around the house for organizing. This closet […]

Organize The Closet Under The Stairs {Update}

Closets underneath stairs can be awkward, no doubt! I’ve shown you how I’ve organized this closet in the past, but I’ve given it an update. I’ve replaced all of the hodge-podge shelves with uniform shelves from IKEA. I like the price of these shelves as well as the ability to find different height and different […]

Tour My Powder Bathroom

In all honesty, some parts of these pictures bother me a little bit to post for all the world to see. I look at them and think, why didn’t I move the little stool my 3 year old uses from in front of the toilet? Or, I could have moved the box of tissues off […]

My Re-Organized Garage REVEAL

Funny story. I showed Matt my post earlier this week where I said: “This week I am going to be showing you how I recently re-organized my garage and I am happy to say that it is finally how I want it. Just like many of you, I have to compromise with someone else who lives […]

Kids Command Center {for Hanging Chore Lists & More}

I’ve been doing chore lists with my kids for about 3 years now. I really liked the Chore Stick method for when they were younger and they needed my help with most things (like maybe even reading the chore stick when they were really little!). Lists are just so good for older kids who can […]

Tour the Girls’ Bathroom

Today I am going to give you a little tour of my girls’ bathroom. We are lucky enough to have four bathrooms, and this is the third one I’ve shown on the blog. (You can see my Master Bathroom HERE or The Green Bathroom Here.) One of these days I’ll show you the little powder […]

Tour the Mary ORGANIZES Studio

If you want a pretty drastic Before & After, then you can see what this room used to look like when it was a guest room and my office/craft room. (You can see the old Craft/Guest Room HERE.) When I started my planner shop, I needed a dedicated space for creating the planners and as […]
