If you've read my blog for very long, you'll remember that I love magazines! Sadly, many of our favorites have stopped publishing, so the really good ones are much more valuable than ever! I have always loved Southern Living, even before I became a Southern Living at HOME consultant....speaking of that, there is a nice June sale of some 50% off items to be had while the getting is done. A few have sold out, but if you are interested, you can check out the Sale Flier at my website, www.southernlivingathome.com/sjathome. Click on the June Sale.
In addition to Southern Living, one of my latest favorites is the publication, Real Simple. It touches on so many different things, that I think there is something there for everyone! It talks about many domestic things, many fashion items, and great ways to simplify all the tasks we face in life. I know I can always use great ideas for helping to simplify, can't you? I was looking this morning at the June issue and I love the fact that on the front it says Organize Your Life.......because I know reading about it puts me that much closer to actually being organized, right? HA.
They do recognize in the article however, that some people are right brained and some are left brained, and organization comes much more naturally to those blessed with a left-brained tendency.....but sometimes drive us right-brained "ar-teests" crazy! :D
I love the fact that someone just understands me.....I am the organizationally challenged right-brained member of our family! Hubby is the engineer, totally left-brained. All he wants in life is for things to be in their places! I've learned over the years that that system really DOES make life go along smoother.......so while I struggle, I am much better about putting things back in their places...it makes him happy, after all!
I also LOVE re-purposing things and finding creative uses for many things we all seem to accumulate. That's why this article that I found on the Real Simple website prompted a blog post in my mind.....a blogger just thinks that way, right? Anything is fair game for a good blog post!!! Well, almost!!!
This article I've linked to does just that.....it is 50 ideas/new uses for our old favorite things. There are some brilliant ideas here! Go check it out! I have a few like this that weren't mentioned, which perhaps will lead to another brilliant blog post! What are some uses that come to your mind of things you've creatively repurposed? Do go check out the article...you'll be inspired!
