How to Organize Your Clutter
Audra: This spring, we’re going to help you get organized and free yourself from all the winter clutter, all the things that are gathering up in the house. Finding a place to store everything really has come a long way from those boring storage containers in those files. Jackie Miranne is here. She’s the Contributing Editor to Fresh Home magazine and she’s got some of the latest organizational products out there. Good to have you here Jackie.
Jackie: I'm happy to be here.
Audra: Yeah, get us together.
Jackie: Today is the perfect time for organization and you also want to bring some fun to function whether you're at home or on the go and all of these products do just that.
Audra: That’s good. Now the first one, I love this because this means you're on a bike. You got a basket. That means—
Jackie: Yes, spring is here. You're traveling but you still need your stuff with you. Whether you want it decorated with these gorgeous hydrangea or you want to put your snacks and you water, you can literally pop it right on and off your bike and take it with you whether you're going to the picnic to the beach around town. This is under $30.00. It's such a spring must-have.
Audra: And it's a nice sized basket so you can fit quite a bit of stuff in there too.
Jackie: Right. All your essentials plus some fun stuff. You can even put your puppy in there, why not.
Audra: You must be tired of seeing holding things into their arm when they're trying to ride their bike too, right?
Jackie: Right, you need a function and have some fun.
Audra: Okay, so the next item we’re going to go to, it said trio of little sweet twerts.
Jackie: Actually, they're called sweet tweets. And these take an ordinary product like your everyday hook and turn it into something special.
Audra: Now explain that tome, tell me what—
Jackie: This, hang on your wall and you can put your everyday essentials whether it's your keys, your dog leash. Now you have a home for them. You can even slip notes. As you see, we slipped a note right in there. So, it's an added element of function. They look great and for $13.00, it gets you organized and you have a little fun with it.

Start them at a young age and it's perfect for the baseball caps, the hooded sweatshirts. It's sturdy. It’ll hold up to the kid’s wear and tear. It looks great. It brings some fun. It teaches them to get organized.
Audra: That’s great. How much is this one?
Jackie: This is around $60.00.
Audra: $60.00, okay it's worth it to a lot of moms to have everything above the floor right?
