Organizing Ideas To Steal for Your Kitchen from Ikea Stores

There were two store tours on my list, and I chose Ikea. You’ve read about the baskets before.

Every woman’s kitchen has at least one recipe book – either self-bought or gifted. Mine has over 100 of them. No exaggeration. Seriously. Most of them are small supplements that come with various Tamil monthly magazines.

Inviting Creative Toy Storage Ideas in Kids’ Room

One of my biggest nightmares is to organize and put away my toddler’s growing pile of toys.

Once a month, I go through the pile to discard broken ones and give away…
