Rebecca’s Kids room reorganized

My baby sister was in need of my advice and help with her kids rooms. They needed to have more space because they are small rooms. It’s amazing what you can do with two or three pieces and rearrange them to make more space. I love doing this type of stuff. I moved the dressers into the closets because they weren’t being used enough because they don’t have a lot of hanging...

72 hour Kits

I have an amazing talented friend who is a pro when it comes to this stuff. I have worked hard to do her 72 hour kit broken down in weekly tasks and I think I’ve got half of it done. I have in the past been good about rotating my food every 6 months at General Conference time for our church so it’s in April and October but I haven’t updated ours in about 2 years. I figured it was time and plus we now live in a cold climate so now we have to pack better clothing options too. Now the next project is to find a space for my bags and create and emergency prepardness closet. I’ve got a big closet in my laundry room that would be perfect for...

Book Trunk

I’ve had this trunk for quite some time now and only used it as a design piece but found another use for it recently. You see Trent has a lot of books and they don’t all fit on my one big bookshelf in the office/library so he stores them by his end table next to the bed. It looks hideous and I’ve been going back and forth about what to do about this problem because it’s not a pretty site. I looked over at the trunk on day that was placed in our bedroom but in the sitting area next to the wall and it hit me that I should place the books inside it and then move the trunk to the foot of my bed. I love when things come together even if it takes awhile to think of a...

Updated Accountability Charts

I updated our charts from back here and added a few lines to it.  On the top for our zones I added bathroom to the mudroom zone cause it sure was a mess!  Then I added beneath the zones an explanation of the morning and night routines that they will be responsible for doing on the below chart.  It needed to be put somewhere so it fit on the zone chart. I added night to this chart above because it wasn’t getting done.  The “Date with Dad” cute thing came from Pinterest and each week one child gets a special date with a parent on Friday afternoon for a couple of hours before we go on our date.  So I decided to tape this up so that it will be a friendly reminder to them to not only do their jobs each day but at the end of the week you will have the privilege of going on that date with the...

Trent’s Stand up Desk

Trent started working from home and he wanted a space where he could stand up and work. The only place it will work was in our bedroom in our little nook area where a TV should go but we haven’t had a TV in our bedroom for about 4 years now. I bought a tabletop from Ikea for $25 and Trent put 1×4’s underneath on each side of the table to hold it up. I had extra pallets outside from various projects and I decided to put one on the backside of the desk to hide the cords to all his technology. We added two legs underneath the pallet to raise it up. Now I need to add something above the desk to finish it off but it...
