The holidays provide us with a wonderful opportunity to entertain our family and friends, catch up on old times, and make new memories that we will cherish for years to come. Whether you plan on entertaining two or twenty-two guests, organization is key to a stress-free and successful gathering.
How many times do you think about having a few friends over, maybe your co-workers, or perhaps your neighbours? Sounds like a great idea. Then you start thinking about what to serve, how to decorate, do you have enough glasses, napkins, cutlery or plates, and so on. Chances are your thoughts go on overdrive and you become overwhelmed at the thought of getting everything done. So, you give up on your wonderful idea of hosting a holiday party. However, by being organized you can remove that burden of stress and enjoy planning and entertaining in true holiday style.
We’ve compiled a list for you to use as a guideline to help you start planning your holiday entertaining. By following...
Ever feel like you can't quite seem to find the time to write out your to-do list and, more importantly, check it off?
I was recently going through some of my tasks, and realized that some were missing from my to-do list. Given that I am always on the go, it's not always easy to jot down thoughts as they come to me - even with my list template which I print for the week and try to carry everywhere I go!
So, I did what anyone in the 21st century would do - I downloaded an app for that!
If you're feeling like you need an extra hand to try and juggle your daily tasks, I highly recommend Wunderlist. I downloaded this app on my iPhone (for free, I might add), and was instantly creating lists for different components of my life.
Wunderlist is great for building lists and creating reminders but, what I really love about it, is the ability to collaborate with others. This takes the functionality from a standard iPhone or Android app to the next level. I am able to create a list that...

For those who aren’t familiar with the word pegboard, it is often described as "that thin wood with lots of little holes that holds hooks." It used to be found mainly in the basement where tools and small packages of screws would be hanging on it from a hook, or out in the garage with an assortment of lawn implements attached to it with bungee cords. The days of pegboard being relegated to the depths of the basement or hidden out in the garage are over! Pegboard has finally risen to its rightful place alongside home decor and organizational aids.
Pegboard can be used in literally any room in your house. Craft rooms, kitchens, bedrooms, bathrooms, hallways, and yes, basements and garages. It is one of the most versatile and inexpensive decorating/organizing tools available. No longer kept unadorned and plain, pegboard is now painted, stenciled, framed, and proudly displayed as home decor. The question is no longer “Why would you use pegboard in your house?” It is now...
