The destination for getting your organizing fix is Thirty-One Gifts! They have the cutest styles and they are easy to personalize to make your bins and totes fit exactly the needs of your space.

You can add optional lids to keep out dust and extra clutter. These bins are just perfect for organizing extras in a closet. Like here we have one bin for each: tank tops, extra socks, one for nylons and slips, and a bin just for scarves. With Thirty-One Gifts you can coordinate your bins across their collection. Add a Fold-Up Family Organizer or Fold N File in the same print to organize the paper collection and extra accessories.
Give your home an all-over clean with the nugeni STEVA+ Complete Cleaning System.

Then, switch it over to the corded steam mop or try it with one of the steamer accessories to clean every area of your home with the power of steam cleaning. I love the space saving of having a steamer and a vacuum in one with the ability to simply transition the system to meet my current needs rather than storing several separate large cleaning tools for each different need and job. Because it’s so lightweight and portable it’s easy to use in every area of my home.

The way we monitor our health and fitness is taking a smarter approach with the Nokia Body smart scale. It’s the most affordable smart scale on the market and gives you instant feedback on your goals each time you step on the scale. You can customize the display to show your weight tracking, BMI index, even a daily weather report so you can better plan for your day ahead.

The Nokia Body scale looks great in our home and the weather feature is so smart – it makes an easy transition from the scale to the closet to plan our day. You can take the insights even further with a Nokia Steel – an activity tracker that is designed into a watch for a multi-function and stylish design. The second dial on the watch face shows your step progress throughout the day to motivate you to get moving!
Updating your light switches around your home is a simple solution that can make a big impact! The Lutron Occupancy/Vacancy sensors can be set up to to turn on automatically whenever you walk into the room or turn off when no motion is detected. We’re using Lutron’s Maestro Occupancy/Vacancy Sensors all over the home to make it hands-free and easy to enter many rooms in our home. We’ll set up the switches to turn on and off automatically in rooms like the laundry room and bathrooms. In my kids’ bedrooms we’ll set the switch to vacancy which lets you turn on the light like a normal switch, but the light will shut-off automatically when no motion is sensed during a set amount of time. It’s so helpful to help keep the lights off when not in use, especially where our kids tend to leave them on when they leave the room.
