It’s getting hot out there! Unless we’re lounging at the beach or playing in the pool, we’ve been spending our days at home with the air conditioning on full blast. Thank the heavens for A/C…am I right??!!
At least I’m getting the house in order before the madness of back to school season begins. Today we’re sharing how we are making our house less chaotic and more organized so that we can create a space everyone enjoys spending time in…because we really don’t have a much of a choice :).
P-Touch Label Maker
We love label makers for organizing items at home. We label wires, file folders and controls so everybody knows what's what. Labels are great for back to school season to keep the kids from losing their things and sight word labeling as well. $30; Walmart
Anne Geddes Paint Collection
It's time to give our walls a refresh and we just found the most beautiful serene paint colors by none other than the famous newborn photographer Anne Geddes. The paint has good depth of color using the very best of pigments in serene color schemes perfect for the nursery or any room to achieve a peaceful environment. Grays are all the rage right now so we're painting the guest room in 'Precious". Sold by the quart or gallon. $15-30; Walmart
Filter Snap Automatic Delivery
If you're like pretty much every other human being, you occasionally forget to purchase and replace filters. We love this automatic delivery service which you can set a schedule to receive air filters and refrigerator filters (every 6 months is ideal but this can be customized). No need to add another item to your shopping list and you’ll save up to 50% off the retail price to boot! Price varies; Filter Snap
Imprima Collection from Typhoon Housewares
The kitchen is the room we struggle with keeping organized. Luckily we have found this beautiful collection to organize our things and still have a beautiful streamlined kitchen. These containers have tight seal lids and are metal with the look of ceramic. $15 and up; Typhoon Housewares
Bright Endeavors Soy Citronella Candle
Made with phthalate-free fragrance and real citronella oil, these candles are a non-toxic alternative to traditional chemical insect repellents. Plus, they come in travel-friendly aluminum tins! But what really makes these candles special is that proceeds help adolescent moms through their paid job training program. $7.99-12.99; Bright Endeavors
Do you struggle with keeping fitted sheets on the mattress? We do, especially in the kids rooms. Finally we have found a solution. These sheets have a base that goes under the mattress and when you need to do weekly washes, simple zip off the top. And the sheets always stay put! Available in crib to california king. $40 and up; QuickZip
T-fal Comfort Trigger Ice Cream Scoop
Featuring a non-slip grip and a stainless steel scoop with trigger release, the Comfort Trigger Ice Cream Scoop will help create the perfect scoop every time. The trigger release feature allows for effortless serving, and ensures that no ice cream is left behind. $11; Target
Love these suggestions. My label maker broke and currently looking for a new one. And man air filters are always the last thing we think of. I never knew they had a service! So smart!
I’ve been thinking a lot lately about getting a label maker. When they first came out when I was a kid, they were so difficult to work that it has deterred me. Although, I know they have to be better now. All my friends use them.

I am interested in the soy citronella candles. I am sure it would smell great (and ward off mosquitoes too). I need to find some of this asap!
Debra J Hawkins says
I want a label maker so bad but my husband doesn’t want me to go label crazy! Duh! That’s what is is for!
We always buy filters in bulk and I keep them in the basement. I have made it a habit to replace them on the first day of the season so I don’t really have to think about it much.

I don’t even want to think about back to school yet although we already registered our kids a couple of weeks ago. I still have a lot of things to do at home, need to get it done before the BTS chaos.
I haven’t done any household shopping but looking to get a new table for my living room and somewhere for my keys
