Card Mobili: it keeps all of my customer cards in one place (Sams Club, Kroger, Speedy Rewards, etc…)

What to do with Baby Wipe Boxes

I use old baby wipes boxes for many things. I store Jameson’s socks in one, in his dresser drawer, I also use them in the bathroom to store q-tips, cotton balls and other small products such as lotions, medicines, etc…and in the kitchen for Kool-aid packets!

I don’t really have steps for this project as it’s pretty self-explanatory.
I kept the boxes that didn’t have Winnie the Pooh on them, as is and covered the others with snowflake wrapping paper. I then stacked 2 rows of 3 on my shelves after filling them with things.

Formula Can Turned Make-Up Brush Holder

This project is more so for the moms or daughters who need to store their make-up brushes. Although, it’s also a great way to store tooth brushes as well!!! Since I don’t have a category for this, I’ll be posting it here on the main page.

You can use any old can (formula, coffee, etc…) but since I have an infant, I have an over abundance of Similac cans.

WHAT YOU’LL NEED:
A can
Wrapping paper or material
Scissors
Tape
Pebbles or beads

Step 1: Peel the Wrapper off of the can and rinse it out.

Step 2:
Measure and Cut your wrapping paper or material.
For the Similac Alimentum cans I needed to use 4 6/16 inches x 21 1/2 inches of paper.

Step 3: Line one end of the paper up with the can and tape it down then wrap the remainder around the entire thing.

Step 4:
Use pebbles, stones or beads inside the can to help hold the brushes in place. I bought these for $2 at Wal*Mart.

Let the Lessons Begin!

Hello, Readers!

My name is Sarrah and I’m a 21 year old mother, student and employee. I created this blog to help other moms (and dads) to *try* to stay organized on a low budget by using items you already have in your home and have no use for!

I have a very rambunctious little boy who was born December of 2011 and 2 step-children, ages 4 and 6, being organized is a necessity to keep them entertained and clean.

This main page will display random tid-bits and upcoming projects. I’ll have pages set-up for each room of the house with projects listed that will help that space reach it’s full potential. Hopefully that will make it easier for you, the readers.

xoxo, Sarrah
