Spring is here and as I do every month, I wanted to give you some ideas for organizing products. Some of these are a bit non traditional, but I promise, they will make your life easier!
To simplify your beauty routine, use an all purpose product like Bar Beleza by Me and The Girls. This bar can be used as a cleanser (wipe onto skin and then rub around and wipe off), a moisturizer (just rub onto face) or a spot treatment. It’s in a push up tube, not unlike a large chap stick tube and it’s great for traveling. (Especially since it can’t leak!). And, because it’s not liquid, it’s safe to bring in your carry on luggage. This is a great gift for a teacher or hostess as well.
If you’re always tossing your camera in a bigger bag it has a good change or getting scratched or even broken. Putting it in a proper case is important when it’s not in use. It also protects it from drops and sharp objects that could damage the lens. I love Case Logic’s Point and Shoot Camera case. Made for small compact cameras it comes in all sorts of fun colors, including pink and purple! It’s big enough to fit your camera but small enough to fit inside a bag. The inside is lines with a micro fleece so it’s soft on your gear. The case comes with a lanyard and belt loop so you can carry it however you like. It’s an inexpensive insurance policy for your priceless moments.
Okay so this is another unconventional organizer, but something that is going to make life with your pet a little bit easier, and that’s what organization is all about. Scoopies bags help you clean up your doggie’s “mess” with ease. It is shaped like a glove so you can easily put it on and grab what you need to. Then, it turns inside out easily and you can tie off the end and toss it away. Know what the best part is? It’s biodegradable. The box even attaches to your leash so you can always have these at the ready. A one handed clean up makes walking your dog so much easier.
For the woman on the go, carrying everything is always a challenge. It’s not easy to be prepared all day long, carry everything you need and look good doing it. I found a bag that carries camera equipment, your laptop and everything in between safety and oh so fashionably. The Libby Bag by Kelly More and sold by Career Bags has all the bells and whistles you want and need.
Just look at these features! And it comes in lots of fun colors, looks sleek and sophisticated and can stand up to your daily wear and tear.

Okay you may not think this qualifies as an organizing product, but I disagree. Reliable Corporation’s Sensor Velocity V200 Iron is the iron you’ve been waiting for to make ironing your clothes easy and effective. It doesn’t leak, it doesn’t “spit” and it irons beautifully. I can iron my shirts in half the time I could with my old iron. The steam is always ready and it dispenses at the touch of a finger. It provides a constant heat and it heats up quickly. It provides you with a profession quality iron in the comfort of your home (and without the dry cleaners’ fees!). It’s a great investment in your home . It also makes a great gift for a college grad starting their first apartment.
If your night table and bathroom counter are covered with bottles, it’s time to get rid of all of those half used eye creams that you’ve given up on. MyBody MyHero’s Anti Aging Serum is the one bottle you’ll want. It’s pricey but it helps boost collagen, can be used on dry or oily skin, goes on light and feels great. Oh and it helps fight wrinkles and tighten loose skin. It feels great and works wonders. Treat yourself and clear up the clutter.
You’re going to love this next product…If you’re always looking for “chip clips” and trying to keep your fruits, veggies and snacks fresh….Fresh Tape is just what you need. They are pieces of “tape” that are large enough to easily and quickly close. They unseal and reseal easily as well. Yes, they stay sticky and last longer than you think. They come in a variety of patterns and colors. I love that you can add a bit of whimsy to your pantry while keeping things fresh. I started using these and I don’t have bags falling open anymore. My salad stays fresher and I love the fun designs. Take a peek at all their offerings by clicking the photo below.
This next item is unique and I’ve never seen anything like it previously. It’s called Cabidor and comes in Classic, Classic Deluxe (with a mirror on the outside), Mini, Mini Deluxe and Jewlery. The Cabidor can hold everything from wrapping papers to pantry items to office supplies. It works similarly to an over the door shoe rack by utilizing the vertical storage space on the back side of a door. However, unlike an over the door shoe rack, it is sturdy and installed to the hinges of your door. It stays put and holds more weight than fabric organizer. This is a great item for small apartments, kids’ spaces and even dorm rooms. Try it, you’ll find it very useful.
If you need a little help organizing your closet, try out Knock Knock’s Apparel Tags. These tags attach to hangers and hold information about what the item goes with, it’s season, cleaning instructions and purchase information. These are a great way to really pay attention to what you wear and love!
