It may be true that it’s what’s on the inside that matters, but with lighting, what’s on the outside is important too. I’m very pleased with the lighting improvements we’ve completed at Extra Space Storage. Not only have we made our lighting more energy efficient in hallways, storage units and other interior areas, we’ve also tackled exterior...

  It never ends. Just as I think that I’ve got this whole organized life thing going, I find a part of my life that is cluttered. Which is kind of great, really. Because there are always new ways to get organized that people share on their blogs on this amazing internet thing. I am constantly inspired to try new ways to organize and love feeling the benefits...

  In preparation for our new baby, my wife and I are trying to get as organized as possible. A couple of weeks ago I talked about how we organized our baby’s room, converting it from a guest bedroom to a place for our little one. Now that that’s finished, it’s onto the next project!   For the past two weeks our focus has been on our bedroom. Realizing...

  Since families across the US are thinking about getting back to school this month, I’ve asked my friend Anna to share a few more ideas about how she organizes her family for academic success for this week’s organization post.  I know her thoughts will inspire you to organize your family for a productive and organized school year!  Thanks Anna.  - Jessica...

  Fall break is coming up with those delicious spare days off school. I think it’s not only a time for the kids to kick back, but another chance to travel! If your summer vacation plans didn’t quite come together or if you’re just feeling the itch to get away, fall break from school offers a good opportunity for the whole family to take a trip together.   Fall...

  Each year I ask myself, is it autumn I like best, or spring? While everything seems to burst exuberantly into life in the spring, I have to say I do crave fall with its crunch of leaves underfoot, warm pumpkin pie and nip in the air. Don’t worry. I’m not about to instruct you on how to make your own autumn potpourri using fallen leaves. Woman’s...

  I’m a believer in taking only as much as you need. Why pile your plate full of carrots and celery at the salad bar if you aren’t going to eat it all? I suppose we end up with spare veggies because of good intentions. The same can be said of lighting.  For safety, it’s important to have a properly lit environment, but sometimes we all go...

“You find the fun and ‘SNAP!’ the job’s a game.” If only Mary Poppins could come flying down with her umbrella and solve all of my household ills. Even though the Banks had a cleaning lady (or a few) and a cook, Mary Poppins seemed to have more tricks up her sleeve than in her magic carpetbag. That carpetbag, by the way, makes a monthly appearance in my...

The summer of 2012 has definitely been newsworthy, one might even say eventful!  The much anticipated London Summer Olympics are truly exciting, but here in the US there have been many other hot topics this summer.  Wildfires in the western US, a deepening drought in the mid-west, the supreme court decision on healthcare and upcoming US presidential elections...

  I invited my friend Anna to tell us how she keeps her family organized for success in the school year since the first day of school is right around the corner.  I was inspired to set summer goals after reading her last post on Summer Fun  and am equally impressed by how she keeps her household organized during school.  I hope you enjoy the post and find...
