What Works

Most of my organization systems are evolving or have evolved over time. Some systems have been nothing more than a "good effort" and live on as a work-in-progress. Others have worked, continue to work and (I hope) always will. That is what I am focusing on for a new series of posts called, "What works."

This series will be super simple, easy to implement fixes for every-day problems. Nothing fancy. Just tried and true.

Problem: coats (We live in MN so these are a problem YEAR ROUND!)
Solution: a coat tree. Did you know coat trees predate hangers, which were invented in 1903? Talk about tried and true! They really are quite handy. Call me lazy, but hangers can be a lot of work at the end of the day. It's so much easier to grab and go. The coat tree is the perfect spot to hang my purse and is even more ideal when we have company. Love our coat tree. Hooks could work just as well.

So, that's that. What Works (Part 1). Simple. Tried and true.


  1. I like the 'true to life' approach. No one is perfect. No one has the perfect life, family, house, etc. When people are their true self and 'down to Earth', they are more relatable. Poor Gwyneth Paltrow just can't figure out how to be relatable. LOL I'll read your blog over hers anyday!
