After a very long winter spring is finally here. The weather is warming up, the cold and snow has passed. It’s a wonderful time to throw open the windows, let in the fresh air, and to start getting the house we’ve been cooped up in all winter organized.

That’s why I’m excited to share with you these 4 Easy Ways To Organize Your Home using items from the new Home Collection by Post-it® Brand, Scotch® Brand and Command™ Brands.Use Caddies
For years we were at a loss about how to store all of our pens, markers, and scissors. We tried tossing them in drawers, putting them in a standing pencil holder that looked like a mini-golf bag, and even dropping them into a bowl on our countertop. Each method takes up a lot of space and never encouraged us to put any of the items back where we got them. That’s why we were excited to start using the Command Clear Caddy.
What we like about this caddy is that you can use the Command Clear Adhesive Strips that come with the Caddy to attach it strongly to a variety of surfaces. We chose the side of our refrigerator because we walk by it often which makes it easy to return any pens and markers where they belong.
Put it in a Pocket
One of my biggest battles is mail that piles up on the kitchen counter. I try to deal with the mail as it comes in but Dave would rather leave it on the counter and go through it later. After while we end up with quite a big pile that usually topples over and spreads across the counter. That’s why I was excited to try the Post-it View and Go Pockets.
As you can see these pockets are perfect for keeping mail, papers, menus, recipes, and coupons all off the counter. The View and Go Pockets are easy to mount and remove from refrigerators, cabinets, and more and they can hold quite a bit. I like that the flap seals make it easy to remove the whole pocket to take on the go.
We’ve also found that they are great for all of the school papers that Kora & Logan bring home. Many have to be returned a few days later and it’s been tricky trying to remember exactly what goes back when and where the kids or we put it. We’ve stuck the larger pocket to inside door of a lower cabinet so Kora & Logan can reach it if they need to.
Refrigerator Door Organization
Our refrigerator is full of schedules. We’ve got the school calendar, two lunch schedules, a flag football schedule, and a soccer game schedule. We’ve been using a variety of magnets to keep them all stuck to the refrigerator. It’s been tough trying to display everything so it’s easily seen and since the magnets I have aren’t strong enough to hold everything I’ve had to use multiple to do so. Thankfully the Post-it Magnet Grip Discs came to the rescue.
Displaying Kids Artwork
Having a 7- and 8-year-old means our house is overflowing with creative and cute kids artwork and school projects. We usually hang up some of their favorites in their room but have tried to find a great display solution that will allow us all to enjoy their creations and the Post-it Grip Display Rail will be the perfect item to help us do so.
We can also use Post-it Display Cards with the Grip Display Rail and Kora & Logan will be excited to use them both to hang up their artwork. I put some of their school papers in so you can see how it looks. It’s nice and easy to get the papers in but without the cards they flop over.
Kora and Logan are excited about the Display Rail and that it’s a very easy to change the artwork being displayed so whenever they bring home something new they can change it around to their liking and we can all enjoy their art projects.
We are working hard on getting our house organized this spring and the Home Collection by Post-it Brand, Scotch Brand, and Command Brand has helped us get a good start. We recommend the line to anyone looking for a stylish, friendly, and easy way to organize your home.
