We're about midway through the summer months, and I don't know about you, but for me the days and weeks are flying by!

Even so, it might be a good time to take a peek at the inside of your home, room by room, and see if there are some home organization projects you could tackle.

I know...the weather is great, you want to spend time outdoors, the kids are out of school, etc. etc.

Here's the thing - you don't have to tackle the entire house, just one area at a time, like a closet, for example. If you break up a large project into small pieces, it's more attainable and doesn't seem overwhelming. An hour spent here and there to work on it will add up.

For me, my current cleanup and clean out project is taking place because we will be moving in a few months and I refuse to take anything with me that has not been used in the past year or so, and isn't likely to have a function in our lifestyle anytime soon.

Here are some great tips for you to follow if you want to have an organized home.

Take this project a little bit at a time, and before long your home will look great (even in the closets, cabinets and under the beds!)

Coffee Time Thoughts...Frame your children's artwork for a colorful wall display

If you're like many parents, you collect your kid's (or grandkid's) artwork and store it away for mementos of their childhood. Why not take your favorite pieces, frame them, and place the collection in a hallway, guest room or other area of your home. They could even brighten up the laundry room!

Use your imagination with the frame shapes and sizes, and have fun!

Have you heard about....One Kings Lane?

If you haven't, you're missing out on some great online shopping deals.

One Kings Lane is an elegant, curated online sales site. Anyone can join for FREE, and as a member enjoy spectacular, hand-picked selections of top-brand and designer items at up to 70% off suggested retail prices.

The specials and sales change regularly, but you can see what's coming ahead by checking the One Kings Lane calendar...it's a pretty cool way to shop!

I have learned one important fact, though, and that is to check in early and often on a sale that I am interested in, and if I see something I like, purchase it. Quantities are limited and once an item is gone, it's gone.

The daily emails are addicting, so be forewarned...you will have to stop everything and see what One Kings Lane is offering!
