The Frugalicious Life...Organization & Recycling.

Our lives can be very hectic at times, especially to those with little ones. School schedules, activities, doctor appointments, music practices and games to attend, our lives become to hectic to manage it all at once. Here is a good way for parents out there that wish to become more organized with all these daily to do things and to smooth out their days. Every home needs to have a Family Command Center.

A command center is where everything gets organized for the family's weekly activities, where phone calls are made and where life becomes more organized. Here are 2 examples of what a command center should look like.

A place where even the school bags are hung and not placed on the floor.


Here is the family command center full of daily to do's...lovely. 


Try to find a corner in your kitchen or your family room to create your family command center and try to keep it well organized to prevent loosing Suzy's ballet class or recital.

I am all for organization & recycling. An empty box and empty toilet paper rolls can be made into a great organizing area to hold paint brushes, pencils, pens, scissors or even makeup pencils, the sky is the limit for this recycle project...be creative in decorating it and remember it cost nothing to make...now that's a frugalicious idea!!!!.


Do you have an unused muffin pan?...Here's another item that can be recycled. Use an old muffin pan  to organize paint for your little ones to spend a few hours creating their pictures.


If you need an apron, why not make your own out of old jeans and old unused shirts.



Those old jeans look great as plant holders. Put the flower pot inside the plants after you stuff the legs with either tissue paper or brown paper bags. They look lovely.


Don't toss out those empty butter bowls, reuse them to organize the sock, belts, gloves, scarf's and lineage.


This is a great decorative way to make your yard pop with envy. Use an old chair, paint it a vibrant Summer color then cut out the seating area and place the flower pot inside it...it looks gorgeous.



Here's a great way to organize scarf's and baseball hats by using shower rings...check it out.




I want to do this...get some old tires, paint them white and make a cute snowman for your front entrance.
