Welcome to my Recommendations page of the blog, a curated list of the tools, products and services I strongly recommend for organizing, decorating, diy’ing and saving money too. I update this list regularly so check back here often! I have personally used every recommendation on this page.

This commission comes at no additional cost to you. Please understand that I have experience with all of these products, and I recommend them because they are helpful and useful, not because of the small commissions I make if you decide to buy something.
Besides this list – I frequently check Amazon for their home decor selection because it’s easy, generally affordable and comes right to my door. Plus – I trust Amazon wholeheartedly. I have used them for years!

These are my favorite organizers ever!
Clear Acrylic Bins : I absolutely cannot get enough of these clear acrylic bins for organizing. I use them to organize my pantry, medicines, linen cabinet and refrigerator – to name a few! I tie little gift tags to them in my linen closet as labels. They are a great value!
Hangers : This one swap DOUBLED my closet space – and made it prettier looking! These hangers are a much better value than a very popular brand out there. These are non slip and have been very durable for me. I’ve also tried the Amazon Basics brand and love them too – but stick with the neutral color ones over the black due to fuzz.
Battery Organizer : I bought this battery organizer to organize all those dang batteries we have. (Ya know, kids toys take a lot of these guys). I keep this tucked in our drawer and the battery tester has come in quite handy!
Hanging Gift Wrap Organizer : I wrote a post on this gift wrap organizer!
Hanging Jewelry Organizer : I wasn’t sure if I was going to like this thing, but I do love having my jewelry neatly stored in the closet rather than taking up space on our dresser. I’ve been really pleased with this hanging jewelry organizer.
These are my tried and true favorites for crafting and doing DIY projects!
Canvas Drop Cloth : I use this canvas drop cloth for a lot of projects, including shibori dyeing and for my zipper pouches. This brand is affordable and durable and doesn’t come with that terrible seam down the middle. Love it!
Best Spray Paint for Projects – This Rustoleum spray paint is the best! I also used the Rustoleum gloss enamel spray paint. Both are easy to use, durable and beautiful colors. I used it to makeover my adirondack chairs and to upcycle old decor items.

Hobbies & Online Classes
I always love learning something new! I’ve taken ONLINE classes through all the following resources and wholeheartedly recommend them.
Brit & Co. – They are always adding something new and trendy to their class line up. Plus, there is no shortage of coupon bundles and deals when you sign up for their enewsletter. Check out my sales page to get all the latest deals! Personally, I’ve taken jewelry making and photography classes through them. But they also offer embroidery, drawing, watercolor, hand lettering, parties and so much more. I love the style of the classes and once you sign up and pay, you have access to the class forever.
Skillshare : I took a bunch of Skillshare classes when I was learning Photoshop and pattern making. They have a A LOT of classes in tons of fields of interest. And the classes are taught by experts in each field. Watch a few videos and learn something new! It’s addicting!
