How I Organized Our Junk Drawer in 15 minutes for $2

I have been driven crazy lately with how messy our junk drawer has been. I know, it’s a JUNK DRAWER. But, it can organized junk, right?

I’ve been on a mission lately to organize as much as I can to help with my sanity and to have a nicer looking home. :) Yesterday I had to go to the Dollar Tree and I decided to check out what they had that could benefit my organization plans. I’ve already used some of their products and have been happy so far.

Since I was surprisingly shopping alone, I was able to just browse at my own pace. I walked through almost every aisle in that store looking for things on my list and just simply for ideas for the many ‘projects’ I’ve given myself.

I found a few different items that I considered for my junk drawer organization. I settled on two things: – first, a three pack of rectangular baskets (great for pens!), and second, a three pack of small baskets. It was only $2, so if this didn’t pan out the way I visualized, I knew I could find a new use for them and not be concerned about the price.

This is how my drawer looked before I tackled it:

Messy Junk Drawer

This is how it looks now:

Organized Junk Drawer

We have a lot in our drawer, and I found quite a few things I thought we were out of, and even things that were basically useless and thrown out. I felt so much better afterwards. All it took was 15 minutes and $2.

Netflix to remove My Little Pony

Earlier this month Netflix released a list of shows they’ll be removed at the first of February. I just saw this list this week and our family is not too happy. One of the top shows that stuck out to us was My Little Pony. Our daughter has been into My Little Pony for a few years now and it’s one of her favorite things to watch. Even our son enjoys watching it with her!

I’ve already checked Hulu and it’s not available there. So, I’m browsing Amazon for DVDs so that our family can still enjoy some My Little Pony. Here are some of the DVDs I’m considering for my family.

My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic: Season 1

My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic: Season 2

My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic: Season 3

My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic: Season 4

My Little Pony: Equestria Girls

My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Rainbow Rocks

Our Review of Disney On Ice Frozen!

empty scene

As most of you know, Elsa, Anna and the whole gang rolled in to town last week for a week of shows at the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, Ohio. Our family was able to attend the show on Sunday evening, and boy did we have a great time!

From the time the show started, our kids were having a wonderful time. Our 4 year old son was so excited about all of the characters in the opening (Mickey & Minnie, Lion King, Toy Story, and more!) that he wouldn’t sit down. He just kept looking all around pointing out individual favorites and saying MOMMY! LOOK! IT’S GOOFY and on and on. He’s been attending these shows since he was 1 month old so it’s always great to see him get so in to it each and every time. Our daughter was 2 at her first show and she still enjoys them all as well. We have lots of fun family memories from our visits to Disney on Ice shows.

Frozen has taken over since it was released. Most people know what you’re talking about if you mention the name or some of the characters. With all the love for the movie, I was very hopeful that this would be one of our favorite Disney on Ice shows. Let me tell ya, it definitely was! Feld Entertainment did a wonderful job putting this show together and it was great to see the story come to life and unfold right in front of us.

The scenes, props, and costumes were beautiful. I loved the Olaf in Summer and the snowy scenes the best.

Of course the main characters looked great as well. (It was so cool to see Sven and Olaf skating around too!)

Early on in the show, when it came time for the trolls to be involved, I admit, I was disappointed. There was a large troll over in the corner who narrated the scene where Anna had to be saved by the trolls as a child. So I was pleasantly surprised when they all came out later in the night when Kristoff took Anna to meet his family, the love experts.

 

Trolls!

The whole show was a wonderful. Here are some of our other snapshots of the evening.

Fyrflyz are still enjoyed by all

Today was a snow day for my daughter, which meant she was home with her brother and the 5 year old I babysit. Days like today I basically let them play and do what they want (within reason). During today’s adventures, one of them came across one of our fyrflyz that we reviewed years ago! The kids had fun playing with it and I wanted to remind you all that these exist. I LOVE that it’s battery operated and not something that’s just thrown away once the light goes out.

Here’s a picture of Dave trying it out at Cedar Point three years ago.
