Falling leaves !

Whats to organize about falling leaves? Well if you have a yard with oaks and maples like we do, you know that the leaves can get ahead of the desire to rake them up. As I watch my husband gathering the leaves on cold days from in side our nice warm house. I notice that he has a system..
He works in sections.
 Gathering big piles
 ( which my grand daughter loves to dive into very helpful to redistribute the leaves back around the yard. ) 
He has a few ways of getting rid of those leaves. 
   *You can bag the leaves. Than put all the bags to the curb for pick up. 
They sale the bags in different stores. My least favorite thing. 
    * You can mulch the leaves an put the mulch around the yard in flower beads for the winter, or in a big mulch pile to keep and have good soil as you turn the leaves over and over. I like this way.
 No cost for bags every year and it can be fun to feed the leaves in the mulcher.
    *Another fun way you don't have to gather the leaves. 
       Some tractors have mulcher attachments this is real fun driving around on the tractor picking up leaves. The only real hard work is dumping the tractors mulcher bag either in to leaf bags for pick up or on the much pile I mentioned before. 
Any way you choose to pick up your leaves the more trees you have the more work you will have. 
So to make it fun find some one to do the job with a kid will work. It may take much longer but you will see the real reason those piles of leaves are for. So dive in an enjoy the colors of the falling leaves.

Hair brush holder

How many of you have more than one hair brush? Ok, now how many of you have more than one tooth brush in your bath room ( ok not just your own tooth brush ) ? So what does one have to do with the other? And how can it help organization things in your bath room?

They say a picture is worth more than a thousand words. 
Yes this is a tooth brush holder that I really liked, except when it came time to clean it out. Yes I clean the bottom of the tooth brush holder. 
After a few times though I put my cute and heavy stone holder aside I did not want to part with it. One day while sorting out stuff I came across my tooth brush holder and one thing lead to another. Igot a new hair brush holder. No cleaning out the bottom needed. It is heavy so it won't tip over its made of stone. I like to reinvent uses for things that I like. Hope this idea gives you an idea to transform something around your house.
