Best Blog Tips

I am so thrilled to have discovered the world of blogs. I cannot tell you how inspired and motivated I have become just reading everyone's contributions and tips. I'm much better organized now! My favorite tip so far comes from Adventures In Renovating a Brooklyn Limestone. I love reading her blog and not only does she offer amazing tips (like the one below), but she generously designs and provides lots of downloadable freebies to help those of us who are in need of saving when it comes to organization!

Best tip of the YEAR!: Organizing and storing your paint remnants. This has to be one of the best ideas I have seen so far and I'm sure I'm not the first to repost it, but I don't want anyone to miss out on it!

Adventures outlines this great idea and offers a beautiful downloadbale paint can label on its January 10, 2010 entry titled "Simplifying Our Stash". How would you like your garage stash of paint cans to look like this?:

And while I didn't think it could get any better than those, while looking for my own empty paint cans, I came across these two at

Black Cans ($2 each when bought as a case):


Clear paint cans ($6 each when bought as a case)


These are both full gallon sized, but they offer numerous options in the quart and pint size! Both these options would look terrific with Adventures downloadable label.

I can't wait to get started! I may start this project this weekend when my husband leaves for 7 days on a business trip. Surprise him when he gets home!
