Scoring on Super Bowl Sunday

For those of you whose beloved football team is not in the Super Bowl this year (tear), Sunday February 2nd might be a good time to instead spend a little time on you! Now we are not saying you should miss out on the commercials this year (because those are always a good time!), but Super Bowl Sunday also happens to mark 1 month since the New Year began. Are your New Years Resolution(s) still headed in the right direction??

Since "working out" & "being more organized" always  seem to be the majority of America's top resolutions year after year... and Super Bowl Sunday is all about good ol' fashioned American football, we thought it seemed most appropriate to help with a few quick tips to keep your fitness headed to success!

If biking (ie to work) is your new fitness resolution, it is important to have your wheels in a prominent place in your home or garage. It only makes sense that you will actually bike, if you see your bike! We are absolutely loving this chic bike shelf by Knife & Saw! It's sleek, modern, and functional!

If you're the type to have a set weekly workout routine with Shaun T on your DVD player (like our gal Raelynn is this year...right Raelynn??), it is important to create a place in your home with (organized) workout equipment. By designating baskets in a well organized specific place, this will help motivate you to actually do your at-home fitness routines!

For the fellas that are trying to spend a few more days on the green this year, a golf accessory trunk organizer is perfect for keeping those golf items organized on the go! This way, you can play a quick 9 at a moments notice!

For the smaller cutie pies who are working on less tablet time and a little more active time this year - organizing sports equipment by type and into colorful wired bins, will keep like items together in a more playful way. Being able to see what is inside and having easy access, will most likely encourage your children to play outside more!

We hope you all have fun watching the game, or at least the commercials and half time show at this year's game! And if none of the above, perhaps spending the day organizing or up in the gym, just workin on your fitness!

Our 5 Favorite Products Used 3 Different Ways!

As many of you know, we had all of our NEAT girls together in Chicago last week. We had a jammed packed few days, but one of our very favorite events took place one morning at The Container Store. They were kind enough to open their doors to us so we could discuss and discover all of the products that we all LOVE to use. 

We of course had to make it a competition, so every girl was paired with a friend and had five minutes to pick out 3 items and teach us 3 different ways to use them. We figured it was only fair to share our favorites, so that you, too, could add these organizing ideas to your NEAT life!

1. The Canvas Bin

- Could be used for scarves
- Act as a makeshift drawer when space doesn't allow for a dresser

- Or our tride and true, storage for casual shoes

2. The Feathergrain Bin

- Great under a bathroom sink for toiletries
- On top of a baby's changing table to hold all of the diapers, wipes, creams, etc. 
- To hold accessories such as sunglasses or wallets

3. The 8-Cubby Linen Container

- Our recent favorite for belts
- Always a great way for the man that loves his ties
- Makes for a great space for all of your kids crafts (pens, pencils, markers, scissors, etc.)

4. The Bamboo or Plastic Drawer Organizer

- The obvious use...for silverware
- Makes a great makeup container. Especially the expandable one if you have a wide drawer
- Even the junk drawer needs categories. We prefer the acrylic ones for that space though.

5. The Marche Basket

- Kitchen pantry if you want your items to be visible
- Inside your refridgerator (beautiful for the glass front fridges)
- In your front hall closet for scarves, gloves, hats, etc. with labels, of course!

A special thank you to The Container Store for making our jobs that much more enjoyable! Happy Organizing friends!

Houzz your Thursday?

Recently, the NEAT girls in San Francisco attended a Crate & Barrel + Houzz event and if we weren't already in love with the site, we are now! If you haven't already been to Houzz, the best way to describe it is: Pinterest for your home. Hence the name Houzz! The inspirational home photos will lead you to architects, interior designers and of course, organizers! We had to share just a few of our favorites today! First are these amazing cabinets that keep things organized and tucked away in the kitchen.

After organizing many bathrooms, the NEAT girls have decided that a bathroom can never have enough drawers. Between toiletries, first aid, medicine and makeup, this bathroom is ready for anything and everything a client has!

If you have the space, and are seeking shoe inspiration...look no further!

Our Neat Ideas for Halloween Decor!

We are officially t-minus 28 days until Halloween. Since this holiday tends to come and go so fast, we think it's best to decorate your home with decor that has high impact, but takes a minimal amount of space to store for next year. This first inspiration has got the NEAT girls in love with minimal decor. We absolutely adore that they took a chalk labeled bin and relabeled it, "spells" for the month!

As you know, we cannot get enough of glass jars (especially in the pantry!) This idea is completely reusable for your dry pantry items post Halloween. Not sure how to get your jars looking as cute as this picture? Grab some labels from our friends over at Kidecals and you will be ready to go!

If you simply have NO EXTRA STORAGE this idea was made for you! Spray paint your pumpkin a shimmering gold and use a favorite pair of candle sticks for display! If you don't have candle sticks like the ones in the picture, here are some similar from Pottery Barn.

The last idea is a bit controversial due to polarizing opinions on candy corn, BUT the end result for home decor is a win (and edible!) Candy corn can bring your home from fall free to Happy Halloween in seconds flat!
