Decor | Organization

I have been into organization lately – I am not a super organized person by ANY MEANS, but I love to make sure that everything has a place.  Right now, my apartment is super organized and clean – we will see how long that lasts! :)

But in the mean time, here are some tips and tricks that I have picked up along the way!


Organization and reorganization can definitely cost money.  I always look to buy things on clearance or on sale to help me become more organized.  I also have to think about what I have and what I can actually use.  Organization products only work if you put them to use effectively.

Mason Jars

I had purchased some mason jars awhile back for my juices.  I haven’t gotten to juicing yet, but I have been able to use some of the jars for my cosmetics.  Doing this allows me to categorized certain things, like lip balms together, lip glosses together, mascaras together.

Garment Rack

I miss my garment rack, but I don’t really need to resurrect it.  Ugh, it’s so sad.  It definitely came in handy when I was planning my outfits for the week.  Yes, I plan for the week, including work out clothes.  I am so flipping insane, I know.  But I have realized that I can do this without the garment rack.  I will probably get me some 3M adhesive hooks and hang them behind my door … maybe.  :)

How do you organize?  I have done some organization posts here, here, and here.  Feel free to check them out! :)

#ScholarSunday | Getting Highlights

As you probably know, I am not shy when it comes to color.  The more the merrier, if you ask me!  :)  Colors can trigger memories and thoughts and emotions.  For me, red reminds me of the time I got 95% red Starbursts in an assorted package.  I can’t eat red candies to this day!

Color coding is something that has definitely made scholastic tasks so much easier and fun!  I have done color coding on the “macro” with my notebooks and pens, but I never thought about doing it on the “micro” level with highlighting things I read in articles!! When I highlight with one color, it’s hard for me to determine why I highlighted the statement or phrase in the first place!!  Well, no more!
