Bucket List and Retirement Party

I am a teacher at a local school. My team and I hosted a retirement party in honor of one of our team members, Karen, who will be leaving after 32 years. We are so sad to see her go but were excited to throw a celebration in her honor. We put our minds together and quickly had the perfect theme and layout planned. These table settings and decor ideas would go great with really any party, baby shower or get together.

Closet Space Saver

Every year I try to tackle spaces in my house that are not organized and for some reason the new year always sparks my need to clean. My hubby and I have been working hard on getting organized during my weekends off. Let me tell you, whenever I’m not organized I definitely feel more stressed out and I’ve learned that organization is something I can control, hence less stress. The master closet is the start to some areas we are working to improve! When we built the house we asked for extra rods at the top of the closet for more storage. Naturally, I have a lot of bags and purses and I hated the way they were just thrown onto the top shelf of my closet. So I decided those rods at the very top would be perfect for bag storage, especially because I wouldn’t be using valuable closet space anymore. I went to the Container Store to get the pole that reached items to the top rod (FYI: the one at Bed, Bath & Beyond was cheaper, but broke with the first purse I hung up). Then I went to Target for two packs of shower curtain hooks.

To make the shower curtain hooks fit onto the rungs in my closet I had to bend them out and make the hook wider. Do this very carefully because I did end up breaking a few. I decided on this style of hook because it holds the handles to purses better and they don’t just slip off. Look at how much better the closet looks already!

What are some organization tricks you’ve come up with?
