Awesome LEGO storage for the brick enthusiast

If I were more organized I would have created a word for 2012. And that word would be ORGANIZE. I have been trying really hard to get my house and life organized. Is it just me or do you feel like clutter is taking over your life? One of the things that drives me coo-coo cra-zeee are... LEGOS. They are everywhere. I swear they grow and multiply at night while we are sleeping. I have permanent indentions in my feet from stepping on the little buggers. I tried a few years ago to organize them all with these plastic drawers I found, but there are more legos than … [Read more...]

The finale to the under-cabinet lighting debacle

Once upon a time I tried to install some under-cabinet lighting in my kitchen. It was a total FAIL. I wrote a post about the huge lighting fail back in January. You should go read it. It was kinda funny. Besides the fact that it looked really dumb, it put off this horrible high-pitched noise. It was so awful I thought the fillings were going to rattle right out of my teeth. I would love some permanent under-cabinet lighting with a real-for-real switch on the wall and no visible cords showing, but I'm not ready to commit to that quite yet. (Spoiler alert: we might do a little … [Read more...]
