August Rewind | The Best of the Month

Hi friend!  Can you believe we’re already into September?!  I just wish it would feel more like Fall, but I guess that’s getting ahead of myself.  The official start to Fall is September 22, so we still have a few weeks to go!

AUGUST REWIND

August was a full month with back to school and sports starting again.  We spent a good bit of the month just getting our bearings for the new morning and evening routines.  I’ve got a checklist for each of my kids and my son gets a “mom check” each night before getting on electronics.

It was also cool that the moms I’m friends with (of James’ friends) all agreed that our kids weren’t getting on screens right after school.  That way, no one feels like they are ‘missing out’ on gaming with each other.

Today, I’m recapping the top posts in case you missed it, sharing your favorite items, and announcing my Loves Giveaway Winner if you missed it!

ORGANIZATION

How I Organize My Master Closet

Over the years, my closet has been organized, a hot mess, and reorganized many times.  Now, I think I’ve finally found an organization style that fits this closet and my life really well.  It started with decluttering, as it always does!  It’s nearly impossible to keep things neat and tidy and organized when you have too much stuff packed into the space.

Boy’s Room Makeover

My son has a new room, the old media room, to be more specific.  As a media room, it didn’t get much use, but James is loving this new space!

What’s in My (New) Fridge?

I can’t even believe what a difference a new refrigerator made in our kitchen!  It not only looks 10 times better, it’s functional inside with the top as the fridge and a freezer door below.  This post also shares what food we keep inside and how it’s organized for easy access.

September is already shaping up to be a fun month.  I’ll be sharing what I pack in my kids’ lunches, our home all prettied up for Fall, the best Amazon accessories, and there will be a trip recap!  Any guesses where I’m going??

Have a fantastic day friend!

      Thanks so much friend! Have a great weekend!

    That striped dress and sandals are adorable — throw on a jean jacket and it would be perfect for fall, too!

    Please do share more about this checklist for kids and your system here — as mine get older (oldest is going to be 8), I feel I need some more structure in this department and am all ears. 🙂
