Out with the Old and In with the New

As an ambassador for Rayovac I have been compensated for this blog post. All thoughts and opinions on the products are my own.

The new year is upon us and it’s a well-known time of year for change. People make resolutions, what not to eat, what to do more of or less of, and also changes on how they are going to organize or manage their household.

Out with the Old and In with the New MommyB

Here are some resolutions to help you manage your household while making small changes that will improve the organization and tidiness of your home:

1. Replace your batteries in items like remote controls, smoke detectors, and nightlights to avoid last minute (especially night-time) battery changes. Also using batteries that last longer and cost less help to stretch out the need for battery changes, which is why we stick with Rayovac batteries.

2. Buy furniture that doubles as organizers. We have several pieces of furniture that act as organizers, our ottoman for example has a great storage area for games and blankets, which makes for easy cleanup when friends pop in. We love anything that has bins too.

3. Use ordinary items for organizing. I love using clear shoe organizers for all kinds of things like cleaning products, and craft supplies, but mostly we use ours for our pantry door to hold grab-n-go snacks or store treats (out of kiddos reach).

4. Line your fridge. Do you love cleaning your refrigerator?? No, no one that I know does either. To set yourself up for easy, stressless cleaning, consider lining your refrigerator with contact paper, wax/parchment paper. Move your items, lift and dispose of the paper and then replace with a fresh piece and move your items back. You’ll be saving paper towels and electricity too.

Whether your New Year’s Resolutions are different or you don’t have any, these are still some great, easy, tips to get you going in the direction of a happier, tidier home.

What changes, if any are you making for 2015??

Happy New Year!!!

  • I really like these ideas, I am always surprised by the different ways to use shoe organizers!!! Right now my family is restructuring our life and doing a lot of purging (so much junk on the basement which is way better as an outdoor play alternative when cleaned up) reorganizing the house (goodbye dining room hello 3rd bedroom) and rescheduling life as I prepare to go back to work after 5 years home. Any tips are awesome and appreciated!
