Eat More Chicken at the Newly Renovated Chick-Fil-A!

ImageChick-fil-A is one of our favorite places to eat! We LOVE it there! Love, love, love. We frequent the Chick-fil-A on Battlefield Blvd. quite often. Over the past few months they have been doing some serious renovations, but they are finally finished and we got to experience the new improvements a couple weeks ago. The renovations are AMAZING! I cannot believe how much more open and organized the layout is. There is more spacious seating and a bigger area where you order your food. It is awesome!

Our favorite part, of course, was the brand new children’s play area. The kiddos had a blast playing in there!

Image

The play place was so nice and clean! I loved the sign about how parents are welcome! Too cute and helpful when my 19 month old got stuck up on the steps to the slide.

The food came out quick (and we were there right in the middle of lunch hour). They asked us if they could refill our drinks. I was really impressed with our visit and we will definitely be going back!

This Chick-fil-A is located at 1516 Sams Circle in Chesapeake. Click here to check it out.

Now for the AWESOME news! The manager at this Chick-fil-A gave me 6 Free Dinner Vouchers to give away to my readers. How nice is that?! I will be giving away 2 vouchers a day for the next three days!

10 Minutes to a More Organized Pantry

Okay, so let’s be serious. If your pantry looks like mine, there is NO WAY you are getting it organized in 10 minutes. No way! So my suggestion is taking it one step at a time….or in most cases, one shelf at a time.

I started with the shelf organizer on the door. It looked like this:

Image

Chaos! When I was trying to find spices it would take me 5 minutes just to locate it. What a pain. So, it was time to get that thing organized.

I started by taking everything off of it and separating them into things such as:

canned goods
spices
sprinkles
seasoning packets
boxes

I then put the items back on the shelves by their category. I’m all about the categories if you didn’t notice by now:)

When I was done, it looked like this:

Image

Much better! If you want to make it a big project, tackle the whole pantry at once! It will take you longer than 10 minutes, but it is worth it to be organized!

10 Minutes to a More Organized Laundry Room

Today’s 10 Minute organization tip: The Laundry Room. If you are anything like me, this totally scares you! It scared me too. I really didn’t think I could do it in 10 minutes. If you aren’t careful, it can turn into a giant project. But we don’t have time for that, so I just took 10 minutes and sorted through my baskets.

Here is what it looked like:

Image

It’s pretty chaotic right?! My biggest problem are those bags on the right side. I have a plethora of grocery totes. They are overtaking my laundry room. So I decided to go through them and keep the bags I use and get rid of the bags I don’t use.

My pile looked like this: 

Image

I definitely did not need all of these. So I got rid of a bunch of them and ended up like this:

Image

A breath of fresh air. So much better.

The next thing I did was compile detergents. I had a bunch of half full bottles (or is it half empty? ha!) So I dumped them into one bottle and got rid of the empty bottles…..which means, more space! And in my tiny laundry room- space is good.

The next thing I did was go through all the bins and baskets and just flat out organized them.

Image

I got a jar and put all the lose change in it and then put that in one of the baskets to have on hand for future change I find in pockets. I organized all of the Magic Erasers- I didn’t even know I had that many. I compiled and organized until it finally looked like this:

Image

And that was it! Like I said before, this can be a really big project, so if you don’t have time for that, just do the basics to keep it from getting out of hand.

Good luck with your laundry room!

10 Minutes to a More Organized Jewelry Collection

We girls have lots of jewelry. So what do we do with all of that jewelry? I have a jewelry box for my bracelets, but I have organized my earrings and necklaces in my closet.

Here is what I did:

Image

So here is what I did:

1. I used an old picture frame that I wasn’t using anymore and took out the glass and cardboard.
2. I used a piece of the material you put down under a rug to keep it in place and cut it to the exact measurement of the frame.
3. I stapled the material into place on the back of the frame and then hung my earrings on it.

This was the end result:

Image

Then I took the “command” hooks and placed them around the frame and hung my necklaces (by color) on the hooks.

10 Minutes to a More Organized Night Stand

My night stand seems to gather a bunch of random junk like….

Jewelry
Cups
Pens (why? Where do they come from?!)
Hair ties
Claw Clips
Papers
Cords

Where does all of this junk come from- good question. I don’t have the answer to that, but I do have the 10 minute answer to cleaning it up!

Here is what my night stand looked like:

Image

Gross, right? How does it get like this? Oh my goodness.

So I started organizing.

The first thing I did was go through all of the jewelry:

Image

I have a jewelry box and a place where I hang all of my bracelets, necklaces, and earrings. So I put the jewelry away and where it belongs. Next I took all of the cups and stuck them in the kitchen sink to clean later. Then I took all the hair ties, bobby pins, and claw clips and put them in their place in the bathroom. Once everything was sorted through, it looked so much better:

Image

Next I sorted through the books on the bottom shelf. I got rid of the books I am no longer reading or finished with, and then cleaned up the rest of the books. My final project was sorting through all the wires and cords. I rolled them up neatly and placed the behind the night stand so that they are out of sight. My cell phone charger cord and baby monitor cord I left out because I use both of those every night, but the other cords are hidden away and it looks much better. Here is the finished product:

Image

And that’s it! You are more organized!

10 Minutes to a More Organized Center Console – Part 2

Today’s 10 minute Organization tip, as promised, is part 2 of the Center Console. I technically have two center consoles, and since I don’t have a ton of spare time between work, blogging, cooking, laundry, 19 month old, husband, and so on, and so on, I only have 10 minutes to get organized. So I did the first center console yesterday. And today I am doing the 2nd center console.

This center console is where my arm rests in my car. It’s directly to my right side when I am driving. You open it up and ta-da: A whole bunch of junk:

Image

Like I mentioned yesterday, you will want to bring a plastic grocery bag so you have a place to put all the trash you find.

I went through and took every thing out and sorted through it (most of it was wires, phone chargers, and more sunglasses).

Image

I sprayed some “Awesome Orange” (Dollar Tree cleaner) in there and wiped it up with a paper towel, because it was kind of yucky! Something else I found were a bunch of gift cards, library cards, and grocery barcode cards, so I brought out a little file folder to organize them in. It looks like this:

Image

I got a little crazy and alphabetized the cards, you don’t have to go that far if you don’t want to:)

I also found a bunch of lose change, and I always like to keep some handy in the car in case I hit an unexpected toll or something. So I put the lose change in a little change bag:

Image

After everything was done, it looked like this:
