Top Pins: Smart Storage & Home Organization Ideas

The useful pins rule again! This week’s most popular pins are all home organization ideas or smart storage solutions, except one. This tells me two things, 1) I’m not the only mom thinking about getting my house in order and getting the kids back in school soon! And 2), I can see, also like me, you could use a little more time with just the girls.

Well consider this OUR time, sit back and check out these links and prepare to get your home in tip top shape in no time at all!

Note: The Girlfriend pin may not appear to have as many repins as the others, but it was so good I pinned it twice! Using two different images, and if you add those together (1,2), well it’s way up there. Why you ask? Well, I didn’t see this fabulous pic the first time and who wouldn’t want a shot like that with all their girlfriends?! I love it!

Once last thing before I go, I invited you to stop by and share your most popular pins with us in the comments last time. It was wonderful, in fact, 2 of the Top 5 this week came from comments left by you guys! So I encourage to do so again, and every week. Consider it our own Pinterest Party, see I told you this was girl time :) Who knows maybe you’ll make it in the Top 5 next week.

P.S. Do you guys like the graphics with the repins numbers or without? Still working on my templates here …
