Especially if you are new to organizing. So with just 6 affordable home organizing must haves I am hopeful that you will give these home organization ideas a try. Or at least one of them.

Look everyone has to start somewhere and I'm not picky. I know that even if you just give one of these ideas a try you will notice a difference in your home.

Post after post I have ranted about organizing your bathroom, closet, pantry, and so on. But never touched on a simple idea that you can apply to any area of your home.

So if you have never started a home organization project, this one is for you...

Committing to organizing a space in your home may seem like a lot of work. Or maybe it is a bit intimating to you. You may find the whole concept too timely or expensive.

I understand that everyone is not naturally inclined toward organizing, like myself. So I wanted to share simple ideas that are affordable, quick to implement, but still effective in saving space and decluttering your home.

In this post, I will show you 6 different home organizing ideas that you can try in your home and where you can purchase these affordable home organization must haves.

6 Affordable Home Organizing Must Have

These are my favorite and affordable must have home organization items. Because they can be used in so many different ways throughout your entire home.

Give these tips a try I promise you will not regret it. As always, please let me know if you try any of the ideas below because I love talking with you on social media.

1. Buckets

Fabric buckets are a great ways to organize in any style home whether you live in a multi family or a ranch style home. These tip comes in handy especially if you have kids or a less than cleanly significant other.

If you often find items from other areas of your home in the common area than these fabric buckets are perfect.

You can use these to gather up all those random items from your homes common area and put them back to where they belong, without having to make a lot of trips. I also love these storage bin for putting away my little ones extra toys.

2. Electronics Storage

With everything being so technology focused the need for a place to store electronics, is quickly becoming a mounting issue. Finding a place to store laptops, tablets, headphones, phones,  and all the different chargers (and necessary to keep everything working) is a organizational task.

The best solution I have found thus far is to store our least used electronics in a plastic storage bin - that I place on top of the fridge out of the reach of our little one.

The idea I like most for electronic storage is the use of a charging station, which would be a great addition to a family command center.

3. Conceal Wires and Cables

There are a few different ways to conceal wires and cables within your home. The decision really comes down to your home layout and the finished look your trying to achieve.

4. Create a Paper Processing Area

This is a must have, I know you have paper clutter. It is just something we can't help but to accumulate no matter how many times we go paperless. If you have little ones in school than you really know how paper clutter can quickly take over your home.

I highly recommend creating a family command center to address your family paper clutter. But at the very least investing in hanging basket for your wall. This is a great way to collect all your paper clutter in one place until you are ready to sort through it.

5. Waste Basket Access

Making sure there is a waste basket available in the most used areas is a great way to keep your home organized. You want to make it as easy as possible for your husband and kids to contribute to keeping the home organized.

6. Storage Bins

Storage bins are great way to not only organize your home but it can also act as an accessorize for your bookshelf or storage unit.

10 Bible verse for Conquering Anxiety

November 07, 2019
bible quotes for women | panic attacks | stress | depression | comforting | scripture | peace | don't worry

As someone who suffers from anxiety I know that these verses are only a small step in your journey towards healing. None of us chose to be anxious or worried. We all try our best to surrender our fears, pains, and struggles to God.

Some find it easier to overcome worry than others. You may have faith the size of a mustard seed and still suffer from anxiety. Anxiety is not a sign or symptom of lack of faith.

My Personal Struggle with Anxiety

I'll be the first to admit I've experienced a lot of anxiety attacks. I could not tell you the trigger or cause for most of them. It always seem to escalate so quickly.

It's amazing how you can go from enjoying the warm trickle of water on your body during a shower. To feeling as though your going to pass out. Completely overwhelmed by the feelings seemingly flooding my body at once.

I grabbed my towel and hopped out of the shower. Just in the nick of time. I collapsed on my bed. It
was like a ton of bricks had hit me all at once. I felt of dizzy, nauseous, out of breathe, and exhausted.

The first time it happened I was convinced I was dying. It became a normal occurrence. After a while I just began to accept this was going to be life as I knew it.

Everyday was like a game of Russian roulette. I never knew what to expect. Like most people I suffered in silence out of fear of judgement.

My battle with anxiety attacks went on for years. At my lowest point, I realized that I couldn't treat my anxiety attacks with wine. I decided I had to find a way to manage my stress.

So I began to bible journal. Writing became a form of therapy for me. Reading the Bible gave me a sense of security that I needed.

God saved my life again. I pray God saves yours. With these 10 bible verses that help me conquer my anxiety.

1 Verse to Read when you are Weary

November 01, 2019

John 16:33 says that we will all face tribulation. If Jesus himself perfect in all his ways suffered. Then why should you expect that your life should be free of adversity.

Today we will discuss why life is hard, how to overcome difficult times, how to find God strength, and the best bible verse for encouragement when faced with adversity.

Life is Hard

The is no mistaking the fact that life is hard. You can go from the highest of highest to the lowest or lowest within moments. 

But the thing that brings me comfort in the moments of weariness. Is recognizing that I am not alone.

Not only is God with me during these difficult times of adversity. But my brothers and sisters in Christ are also faced with hardship.

Just as Christ overcame this world. So shall we.

Overcoming Weariness

I won't pretend there is some magic pill that will cure your weariness. Because there is not.

You and I are different. In that we find comfort during adversity in different things.

Grab your Encouraged Devotional and Journal now!

You may find encouragement in hearing the stories of other's hardship, reading the bible, praying, or reflecting on the hardship that God has already helped you to overcome. 

I would like to think that as a woman of faith you recognize that the key to overcoming weariness is God.

God is your Strength

All who live will experience tribulation without a doubt. But as Christians it is our faith in God almighty that grants us the strength to go on.

Not in my own strength can I handle or carry the hardships I have overcome. Even as I sit here speaking with you I am filled with the sorrow of my past.

It is only the magnificent Glory of God that gives me the strength. He grants us power.

When you look back over the adversity you have faced. Recognizing that you have made it through. 

It gives you the courage to continue going forward no matter what obstacles you face. His strength is what you must call on.  

Please don't underestimate the power of God. He can and will help you to overcome whatever may come your way.

Bible Verse for Encouragement

This is the verse I turn to when I feel like my life is full of suffering. If you have ever wondered how will I go on after this. Then you must read this verse.

Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us. Romans 5:3-5 NIV

Affirmation for Encouragement

I wanted to share this affirmation with you as a reminder that your current circumstances won't last forever.

I may have lost. But I am not lost. Because I have you Lord. Lost is simply an intervention. I declare that blessings are coming my way. That this pain is only temporary. Because I am His.

I want to close this post with a short prayer.

Even when life gets hard. You give him the glory, honor, and praise that He deserves. Because He is a worthy God.

Lord we thank you for your strength. For your mercy and your goodness. That Father God even in our adversity you are with us. 

Pushing us forward. You are an awesome God. We thank you because we know with you we can overcome all things.

I personally invite you to do this very thing, to find comfort in God, through my Encouraged devotional and journal. It’s a 21 day devotional that walks you through 45 days of encouraging scripture and journaling. Encouraged is everything you need to stay Encouraged in Christ during difficult times.
