It’s the Little Things #173
Hello and happy Friday to you! We are winding down the school year and I am trying to squeeze in all the little things before the kids are home for the summer. How about you?
This week I am sharing a new to me recipe blog that has me wanting to make everything, a favorite blogger, a creative bike storage idea and paperwork filing 101. It is a little hodgepodge, but isn’t that the way May is? Enjoy!
I was looking for a recipe online and came across Tastes Better From Scratch and subsequently pinned all sorts of recipes. Now I just need to figure out what to make first! Maybe these Hawaiian bowls? Yum!

I have followed Myquillyn Smith aka the Nester for a long time and have always enjoyed her less is more decorating style. She recently moved and I have so enjoyed seeing her new home. The post I’m linking up is all about casting a vision for your home. After reading it and seeing her pinterest boards, I made this a fun home goal for the summer for me. If you aren’t already following her over on social media, do! In the meantime, take a look at her blog as well.
I am all for creative uses of space and organization so when I saw Erin from The Sunnyside Up Blog’s idea for hanging bike storage, I immediately pinned it. Garage storage and organization is at a premium in our house so this may be put on our to-do’s. Perfect for the Monthly Focus of the Garage and Basement!

If you are drowning in paperwork and random documents, it may be time to implement a filing system that you can stick with. I shared what works for us this week on the blog.

I have used the garage system that you mention and I need to warn that you have to be careful – especially with younger kids. We put up 4 bikes this way and found that the hooks for the seat sometime slip off if jostled. With so many people going in and out of our garage, it happens. And it caused quite a dent in the car, although, thankfully not in someone’s head. With time, maybe they have built in locks or stronger attachments?
