Random simple upgrades

Wow! Crazy life! I've been a little absent lately because I have been moving into a new house! Yes, we finally moved into a house that actually fits our family of 5!! Whoo-hoo! I can't say how excited I am. Right now, I am unpacking and trying to get our house in order. However, I do have a couple of random upgrades to my new life. Yes, they are small, but right now, I consider it an accomplishment every time one of our brown boxes gets emptied!

Isn't this TP storage awesome!! I saw this on someone else's blog, and I can't remember who's it is! Please, if you are out there, tell me and I'll give you credit! I got this cylinder vase at Wal-mart for about $20. Yeah, I wish it'd been cheaper, but I loved this idea so much, I had to do it.
Next, I'd been keeping my seasoning packets in the kitchen cupboard in this hot number:Hey, you make do, right? Well, I thought my seasoning packet storage could do with a little makeover, so I found this at the Dollar Tree. Why didn't I do this earlier? Silly me.
And while I am finding a new home for everything in our brown boxes, I have become best friends with the home storage section in Wal-mart, Target, and of course, the Dollar Tree. Baskets are my favorite things in the whole world!

Well, that's it for today folks. I will have a lot more to blog about as I unpack. Wish me luck!


  1. I hadn't even thought of the Dollar Tree for help with organizing! Great idea. And I like the TP storage:)

  2. These are so great AM!!! I wish you were here for when I move into my new apartment...oh wait, you kind of will :)

  3. I upgraded too and bought a "toilet paper caddy" in our new house. Funny the things we get excited about :)

  4. I love your toilet roll holder! I have one I bought thinking it was a great idea, however over time now it is rusting...not so pretty. I'm going to try giving it a face lift as I cannot afford a new one, but I love yours! I am big into baskets too!
