Cheap Christmas Ornament Storage Tips to Save Your Sanity This Year

I used to be that person… you know the one… no ornament storage plan whatsoever. I’d open up the Christmas decorations bins, excited to put the tree up only to find a heaping mess of ornaments, lights, garland, and all the other trimmings that go with the tree.

I was usually so ready to get the tree down by January 1st that I crammed everything in as fast as possible. I paid no regard to the headache I’d cause myself in November when it’s time for the tree to go back up. Thankfully, I’ve smartened up.

These ornament storage, light storage, and garland storage tips have saved my sanity. No more tangled lights… no ornaments getting hooked together… putting the tree up is fun again! We’ve included several Christmas decorations storage ideas to get you organized in the new year.

Printable Lunchbox Notes and Simple Lunch Ideas

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Boar’s Head. All opinions are 100% mine.

Now that we’re gearing up for school, we’ve been asking our son to give us some ideas for his school lunch. There’s no cafeteria at his school as a backup plan, so we have to make sure that the things we’ll pack for him are actually things he will eat. And, boy, is he a picky eater sometimes! However, we know that he loves meat, and since protein is an important part of any school lunch, we trust Boar’s Head as a quality brand with lots of products that kids enjoy.

Easy Pumpkin Decorating Tips for All Skill Levels

11 Pumpkin Decorating Tips for Every Skill Level

When I was younger, pumpkin carving was my favorite part of autumn (except, of course, for getting candy on Halloween). My family and I would put enough newspaper down to cover most of the kitchen floor, and we would all get to work creating our own jack-o-lanterns. This tradition died after a while, as my brothers and I grew up, moved out, and started making traditions of our own. But I still held (and continue to hold) a special place in my heart for decorating pumpkins in the fall. I’ve made sure to carve or decorate at least one pumpkin a year, regardless of who joins me in the process. It just wouldn’t be fall without it! So, after a lifetime of trial and error, I’ve come up with quite a few tips to make the process go smoother to ensure that I can continue this tradition no matter how busy I may be. So, if you’re looking for ways to make pumpkin decorating a bit easier, or if you’re trying your hand at it for the first time, these 11 Pumpkin Decorating Tips are sure to help you out, whether you’re carving or going a less traditional route.

13 Fall Leaf Activities and Crafts for Kids

One of my favorite things to do in the fall is walk. Around the neighborhood, on a trail, in a park, or really anywhere for that matter. Everything is so beautiful! If you’re walking with kids (or, okay, even if you’re walking by yourself) you just might find yourself with a collection of fallen leaves by the time you get back home. But instead of just keeping these little treasures around for a while before inevitably throwing them away, why not put them to good use? This list of 14 Fall Leaf Activities and Crafts is full of great ways that you and your children can use the leaves you find while you’re out and about. And if you live somewhere that lacks in fall leaves, most of these can be done with fake store-bought leaves, so you can still enjoy all of the beauty of fall!
