Closet Organization Hacks

One of my New Year’s resolutions is to de-clutter, particularly when it comes to ALL OF THE KIDS’ STUFF. They’ve outgrown many of their toys or they are broken and missing pieces (I swear those things reproduce overnight too! 😉 ). My kiddos share rooms, so I’ve been looking for some clever ways to organize their closets. Here are a few smart, space-saving ideas I’ve found…

1. Pegboard Wall

2. Book Shelf Doors from Pantry Shelving

Laundry Basket Closet HackI like to use an empty laundry basket (A what?? – What’s an EMPTY laundry basket, right??) to quickly gather toys and other items from around the house for my kiddos to put away later. This Hanging Laundry Basket Idea is so smart!

5. Labeled Bins

Labeled Closet BinsKeeping Labeled Closet Bins is a great way to help kids be in charge of cleanup in their own rooms. If they’re too young to read, try adding a pic of the item along with the words on the label.

6. Floating Bookshelves

Floating BookshelvesThese Floating Bookshelves sit nearly flush against the wall so they take up very little room, while creating a beautiful wall display of books. Love it!

7. Tackle Lego Organization

Lego OrganizationFirst, sort your Lego pieces into stack-able totes like these above…

What is the HIP List?

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply add the post to your HIP List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the HIP List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, you first must head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back later to, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account.


When logged into your account, you will then see your HIP List on every page.


If you're wanting to print a certain deal, article, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. That will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include in your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you!


If there are deals that you are not interested in keeping on your list, just click on the minus button to remove it.


Now, just print your customized HIP list whenever you're ready to go shopping and snag some "Hip" deals!
