Organizing Gear: Fall Roundup
There are a lot of organizing products out there. Every season, (sometimes more often!), I try to bring you some stand out products that will make your life easier and help you stay organized. These are products I’ve tried out and use in my own home. I want you bring you amazing items that will make your life a little easier, every single day.
Please note I received samples of some of these items in order to try them out and write these reviews. My opinions were not influenced in any way and are my own. I only bring you products I love.
You may not have heard of FECA. However, their suction cup organizers are going to change the way you use your space. I’m always talking about using vertical space and how it can really make an impact in how you store items. FECA allows you to use walls, doors, cabinets and any flat surface as a storage space.
Their Signature Multi Purpose Chrome Bar can be added to just about any room. I love it on the backsplash in the kitchen to hang frequently used utensils. (They even sell spice jars designed to fit on the rack.) It’s also awesome on a wall in your closet for necklaces and scarves or an entry way for coats. It holds up to 13 pounds!
Bathroom counters are notoriously small. The amount of things you need on them is notoriously high. Feca’s Hair Dryer and Brush Holder helps solve this dilemma. The holder attaches to the side of your kitchen cabinet or to the wall and holds you hair dryer and two brushes. It holds up to four pounds and ensures your tools are close at hand but keep your surfaces clear. I love this!
If you’re looking for a new planner I want you to take a look at the Every Day Matters Journal. It’s a journal and planner in one. However, it’s so much more. The planner not only has plenty of space for daily planning, but also offers inspiring advice on how to make each and every day really matter. Designed as a resource for enriching daily life, it will guide you on a year-long journey of awareness and fulfilment as you go about your everyday activities. It’s all-too-easy to become overwhelmed with multiple thoughts each day as our to-do lists grow, so I’ve come up with one life-enhancing theme per month to focus on.
Each monthly theme zeros in on a single word — like “happiness,” “beauty,” or “simplicity” — and is the basis for a weekly quote and activity chosen to inspire reflection and positive transformation. The monthly themes for this year are: Happiness, Creativity, Truth, Beauty, Simplicity, Kindness, Mindfulness, Curiosity, Wisdom, Courage, Gratitude, and Growth. Focusing on just one theme each month, but looking at the theme in a different way each week allows for each theme to be considered from unique perspectives and encourages positive action to become an integral part of day-to-day life.
This next item is a little out of the box. It’s called The Foot Hammock. It’s a foot rest that dangles under your desk. I love to put my feet up and I always have a foot rest or am propping my feet up on a trash can. (It often ends in mini disasters.) The Foot Hammock attaches to your desk and allows you to sit comfortably without having to keep a foot rest on the floor. This is great if you’re limited on floor space or if you want to personalize your desk within a corporate environment. The Foot Hammock comes in mesh, fleece and even heated fleece. Grab a few to take care of your holiday gift list early!
I’m all about writing things down and tracking progress. Journal Menu’s fitness journal is PERFECT for keeping me motivated and giving me an organized spot to keep track of my fitness. They have LOTS and LOTS of cover designs to choose from. However, I suggest having a little fun and designing your own. I was able to put together a collage of quotes and images that inspire me. The fitness journal allows you to track your weights, cardio and everything in between. Having all of this info in one place not only motivates me to make sure I complete my workouts, but I can see how far I’ve come. Journal Menu also has books available for running, yoga, triathlon training and more. These make a great gift!
