a simplified week


As part of Start Here. I post a weekly recap with a couple ideas (mostly simple and easy to implement) for the week’s focus and a few ideas from the web that I’ve enjoyed over the week. Happy Weekending!


  • This really is a simple product idea, but I love the concept of using a clip to hang lightweight things on pantry shelving. Great use of space! Via Rubbermaid
  • This is a great example of how to use every square inch of a pantry, including the sides. All kinds of ideas on maximizing space in a more “typical” sized pantry. Via Domestic Imprefection
  • Organizing your pantry space doesn’t have to be expensive nor incredibly time consuming. Check out these six do-able tasks to get you started. Via Clean Mama
  • Need some cute pantry labels? There are a ton of different ones here, including blank ones for the random things you may have. And free, to boot! Via World Label

Something to Eat:

  • Ham and Cheese Sliders – these little numbers have certainly been all over Pinterest, but holy moly, are they good! Switch it up with turkey and your favorite cheese if you are not a ham fan. So good and simple! Via The Girl Who Ate Everything

Something to Make:

  • I am totally inspired by this photo wall and its layout. This whole blog is chock full of beautiful design, color and life. Via Camille Roskelley

Something for the Kids:

  • I absolutely love this free printable infographic to celebrate kid’s birthdays. Print out a large one at your local copy shop for under $8. It’s absolutely adorable! Via Petite Lemon


  • Newsflash! Did you know that you can cook a whole baked potato in the crockpot? Even better, you can do a whole bunch at a time! This would be fun for an easy Baked Potato Bar for dinner or when you have a house full of guests. Via Real Mom Kitchen


I’ll be back tomorrow with a little SPRING CLEANING series introduction – see you then!
