Lassig Car Backseat Organizer Review

51YGBzv2-YL._SY679_
Its Summer time and we are going on several road trips even on the five minute rides to the grocery store my kids can be a bit unbearable so we have decided to get organized. Instead of hearing my kids complain about how they are thirsty or need a snack, a toy, tissues, or any of the various immediate necessaries they declare that are unavailable at the moment, where I must go searching on a hunt for said item. We will have it all available within reach we organized for them to have as needed. Instead of hearing screaming that they need their favorite book “Where is it?” I can say look in your organizer. I had the kids pack their own organizers so that they had the items they wanted. I of course checked and made sure all the necessities were there. These organizers really are life savers for long road trips and even short ones too.

The Car Wrap-to-Go organizers are available in various styles that are attractive to boys and girls equally they offer pure traveling comfort. These useful ‘tour escorts’ will be attached to the backside of a car seat so that children have everything within reach. Whether toys, cuddly toy, crackers or beverages, everything will fit in one of the several compartments that are equipped with zipper or hook and loop fastener. Thereby the stylish accessory caters perfectly for the needs of children and assures a smooth and quiet trip for parents at the same time.

Disclaimer: I received the Lassig Car Backseat Organizer for review purposes. All my opinions are my own.

Meal Planner

i had a large bulletin board in my kitchen that was just an accumulator of  various paper clipping, business cards that were out of business and other various things. It really was not doing anyone any good and was more of an eye soar than anything else. So I decided to do something about it! Believe it or not I already had everything  I needed. It was all around my house leftover from other projects. The fabric was leftover from a dress I made Kaia when she was One! I knew it would come in handy some day.

These letters were bought at Discount School Supply they are the Large Wooden Letters

I had an idea for my old pushpins to maker them cute again without buying new ones. I hot glued some rhinestones and gems on them.

Here they are all cute and snazzy.

I also wanted to make pockets for my menu cards

I hot glued fabric on them and used felt letters (I got these at Michael’s a few years ago)

Once that was done I stapled them to the board

I made cute clothespins too! So simple I just cut some ribbon to size and hot glued it to the clothespin with a gem

And then I hot glued the clothespins to the board

I made recipe cards by making a list with my husband of our favorite meals.  I then added more by going through our cookbooks and finding recipes I knew we had liked in the past or ones I wanted to try.

On the back of each card is the title of the cookbook and the page plus basic ingredients needed.

The clipboards are the kids chore charts. I covered them in the fabric as well. I have around 60 recipe cards, Once used for the week it goes into the “old” card holder. when most of the cards are used up those cards go back into rotation. This ensures that we are not eating the same thing every night.

Lay-N-Go Review


The Lay-n-Go may be the best thing since sliced bread. That’s right, it is one of those products that all you can say is “Why didn’t I think of that?”. The Lay-n-Go is basically a mat that you can spread out have the kids play on and quite easily clean up toys included. It is easy to clean, setup, and move. Portability is key here, you can store all those thousands of Legos, Barbie accessories, Polly Pockets etc in one place. There are even pockets on the side to store their favorite pieces so they don’t go into the jumble. I usually hang our Lay-n-Go in the closet when not in use so I don’t have to worry about mess or clutter. I just absolutely love this product. It keeps the clutter away while still giving the kiddos room to play and explore.

Play for hours…cleanup in seconds!Lay-n-Go is a patent pending activity mat, cleanup, storage and carryall solution in one. Two sizes (5′ and 18″) offer kids and parents a great way to easily manage their toy collections at home or wherever your travels may take you!

Quickly closes for hands free carrying and storage
Washable and wipeable high quality fabrics
Velcroed storage pocket to stow the drawstring
5′ Lay-n-Go features inside pockets / shoulder strap
18″ Lay-n-Go LITE is perfect for life life on the go
Lead and Phthalate Free


Lay-n-Go® (patent pending) is a 5 foot diameter activity mat that converts into an easily transportable shoulder satchel allowing for quick and effortless clean-up of small toy pieces. Toy collections used on the Lay-n-Go surface are easily spread out (no dumping needed) for hours of fun. Once playtime is over, the drawstring is pulled and the activity mat is converted back into a completely sealed soft storage bag. Lay-n-Go is a smart and easy activity mat, cleanup, storage and carry-all solution in one.

Shell: 420 Denier Poly to last for generations
Lining: 100% Nylon which is comfortable to play on for hours yet provides a tough and water repellent wipeable surface

Four mesh 7”x 6” pockets on the playside surface provide a great way to stash and organize the most valued mini-figures or extra special pieces

A velcroed front storage pocket provides a place to stow the drawstring when closing or carrying the bag
Wide nylon shoulder strap adds both comfort and convenience for carrying

BusyBodyBook- Review and Giveaway


The new school year means I need to get organized. I don’t know what I would do without a good planner. The BusyBodyBook keeps me organized all year round. What’s best about it for me is that I am able to keep separate schedules for each of us within the same book. I can just flip to the week and there is plenty of room for each of us so I can know where I need to be and when. Plus room for notes like Directions, or added info needed for the week. Like meal planning etc. It is truly fantastic to be able to have everything planned out and scheduled. Which when you have kids is a necessity. We have so much going on at all times if I don’t keep track of our what’s and when’s I would and have lost track of our goings on.

BusyBodyBook Weekly GRID planners are every mom’s go-to time management tool for controlling the chaos of her family’s multiple and hectic schedules. BusyBodyBook personal and family calendars provide individual family members with their own personal column to organize, easily view and follow their schedules and activities – and the ability to coordinate with each other ‘side by side’.

The award winning BusyBodyBook Weekly GRID format provides the clearest view of everyone’s daily & weekly agendas. You’ll easily spot overlapping schedules, avoid doublebooking AND easily find more time to just relax with the family or for that pilates class you so need and deserve.

And, BusyBodyBook organizers are truly versatile. Customize your columns as household or work projects, babysitter instructions, meal planning, fitness routines and diet tracking, holiday or vacation preparations, important clients, kid’s school subjects, afterschool activities… YOUR priorities.

BusyBodyBook planning calendars were created by a very busy mom and through the years BusyBodyBook’s features have been enhanced with the help of the busiest of the busy – our customers, moms just like you who needed an efficient organizing tool to keep them sane.

Snapware Review and Prize Pack Giveaway

And the Winner IS: karen b


I think you can never be to organized. Personally I am always in need of help in the area of Home Organization. Snapware makes amazing products not only for home organization but for mealtime and more. I make tons and tons of hairbows for Kaia. They are just so much fun to make. With all the hairbows comes lots of ribbon. I have been trying to find a way to organize and display my ribbon so that I can easily and quickly see exactly what I have. The Medium Snap and StacK Containers are perfect for this. Along with the Ribbon spool you can easily dispense the ribbon through the container without even opening it up. The plastic on the containers is thinner than the food grade containers but still perfect and nice and light for carrying around to craft parties etc. The ribbon spools would be great for bow making, scrapbooking, even for ribbon you might use for present wrapping. I also received the battery tray if you use the medium Snap and stack for odds and ends and tools the batteries being seprated by kind and size could make your life so much easier. I have mine in Snap and Stack but I have used it for different embellishments like small rhinestones, flowers, buttons and even clips. These Snapware has definitely made my craft area much more organized.
