Weekend Reading

This week was such a slog for me.

One by one it feels like every appliance is on the fritz (or fully broken) in our home!

It’s almost comical, but it’s also super inconvenient and expensive…

Anyway, enough whining – finding this week’s links provided a great distraction for me.

Hope you love them!

Have a great one!

The best Amazon finds to get your home organized:

Here’s a roundup of all my favorite Amazon organizing finds that we use in all our projects.
If you’ve been following me (here!) you probably know that my favorite tool is the Lazy Susan.
Firstly, we LOVE most Lazy Susans, but our favorites are the clear ones.
These are great for holding oils, vinegar, tea bags and spices in kitchen cabinets.
Likewise, they’re also great in bathroom closets for daily morning items like hair accessories, medicine or makeup organization.
We use them in playrooms for arts and crafts, under the kitchen sink for sponges, cleaners, etc. and just about any other room in the home you can think of.
Here are some of our favorites:
