Dust off Your Shelfies {#StreamTeam}

Thank you to Netflix for sponsoring this post. As part of the Stream Team I get to talk about a theme each month.  This month Theme: Dust off Your Shelfies!

Now that school is back in session and life is back on a schedule I find myself thinking of thing I can do for me... you know, a little me-time!

I love watching shows on Netflix... I love that it saves your spot... I love that there are no commercials... I love that I can watch a whole season of a show all in one weekend.  I can barely remember what it was like to watch TV on TV.  When I have to watch one of my shows that I had DVRed (Because let's face- who watches TV in real time now?!) I am so annoyed that I have to fast forward through commercials... I am all "Let's wait until this gets on Netflix!  Who is with me?!?

So what is a Shelfie?  They are the shows that you have in your list of shows to watch but haven't taken the time to watch... they are on your virtual Shelf

Here are some shows that I HIGHLY recommend you take off your shelfie list and finally watch them! 

Warehouse 13

Once Upon A Time


Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt


Gilmore Girls


What show recommendations you have for me?  What should I watch?

5 easy tips to keep the bathroom organized with kids!

If you have little kids at home, you know that the bathroom is a spot that gets trashed everyday.  I am here to share a few tips on how we try to keep our bathroom ship-shape with out 3 kiddos.

Tip 1 and 2 Rob Hooks

Tip 1: Hang robe hooks low enough for the kids to be able to hang up their towels themselves.  We hung ours over our heater so that in the winter it also acts as a towel warmer. 

Tip 2: Hang a robe hook low enough for the kids to reach to hang the hand towel. I know from experience that the towel never makes it back on to the towel rod because it was too high and the towel was always on the floor... now, it is on the hook! 

***I got my robe hooks from Unhinge.  They are super reasonable for prices, ship fast and come with quality hardware to install. They have many quality bathroom hardware for you to choose from.  We love how these hooks are helping us keep out bathroom clean in style!   Check out Unhinged Hardware here!***

Tip 3: How to hide the toys.
I have a bin that we keep the bath toys in (I believe it was supposed to be a magazine holder).  When I have company coming over we take the whole bin and put it in the shower and close the curtain... toys gone!  

Tip 4: Where to put the extra Toilet Paper.
I don't like to keep my extra toilet paper under the sink because it is messy under there and I don't want my guests to have to search for it.  So I got a Paper Towel holder and placed it on the back of the toilet and it is a great way to stack the TP.  This way I can also see if we need to restock since it is out in the open.  I sometimes turn it into a snowman in the winter too.

Tip 5: Brush/comb Organizer
Another kitchen tool turned bathroom hack. I got this hanging basket at Ikea.  It is supposed to be used in the kitchen but it also works great in the bathroom to keep all those brushes, combs, make-up brushes up off the sink or toilet.  Easy to put in and take out of and the kids can do it too. We hang it on our towel bar.  It could also work for bath toys hanging off an extra shower rod - like this

What are some easy ways you keep organized in the bathroom with kids?  We would love to hear your ideas!
