I receive emails from Better Homes and Gardens but they usually get deleted in my desperate attempt to clear out my inbox. I picked up the January issue, the annual get organized issue. I am a complete sucker for anything with organize in the title. I contemplated getting the issue because every year I buy organizing magazines and am left thinking, well no duh!
This years issue was a little different. It had a family example of clean and organized. Of course my house will never be as white or as prestine but there were some good realistic ideas. My favorite was a shelf with color organized books. The home owner stated that when she goes to look for a book she remembers what color it is, so she organizes her books by color. I looked for a picture and sadly I could not find it. I assure you the aray of colors in the white book shelf was beautiful!
The only "duh" of the issue had to do with one of the twenty-five list. The item stated to bring your reusable shopping bags straight out to the car as soon as you unloaded the groceries. Well duh! But generally it is all I can do to fend off the family while getting all of the groceries unloaded and put away. I get the problem but I usually do not get the opportunity to get the bags right back to the car.
All in all it was a great issue.
