An Organized Life....Is A Good Life


As I was headed to work in the pouring rain this morning with my dog Bailey, I was thankful again for my handy Pet Travel-Tainer!

When assembled together it is an easy-to-carry pet food container, but when you disassemble it upon your arrival it becomes a food bowl and water dish. I always take ours with us on trips where we need to take our kids along for the ride!

A Dandy in the Tropics

The Domestic Dandy is on his honeymoon in the tropics! However, he does have a tip for you today!


When one is on vacation it is fine and dandy to have an alcoholic drink in the middle of the afternoon....as long as it is mixed with crushed ice and lovely fruit juices and served in a kitschy cup!


Cheers!

A Wedding to Remember


The Domestic Dandy got married on Saturday! 

For the next couple of weeks, I'll be posting some tips and tricks that I used to plan and create my wedding to my partner of 11 years and the love of my life, Brian Cusick.

Dandy Space Saver

Living in the city, we do not  have a room that I can dedicate to be a craft room. Because of this, I've done my work in the dining room, the breakfast room and yes sometimes even in our gym. That is...until now!

A friend was shopping and found the perfect table for crafts, your laptop, or just a plain work space. As soon as I saw it, I rushed out and bought my own!

I love it!

 
Not only is it the perfect size for a workstation, but when I'm done I can fold it up and throw it under the bed in our guest room!

So Dandy!

Life...made simple!



Last week I made a trip to the Container Store to look at their Elfa shelving system and found a wonderful closet organizer for my work bags

While I was there, I enjoyed looking around at all the gadgets they have to make life simpler and more fun (even if it has to cost a little more to be simpler...lol). 

On my travels around the store, I came upon this fantastic gadget for our Bailey and Maggie.

Pet Top Combo Portable Drinking Device and Short Neck Adapter for Pets, Orange
It's a cap that turns any standard water bottle into a convenient water dispenser for your dog. When the top part is opened slightly it allows your pet to lap up the water by rolling the ball inside the cap. Ingenious! 

I love this idea because I no longer have to carry around a big travel bowl on our hikes, etc. I merely toss this in my pocket and we are on our way! 
Our friend's Whippets liked it too!
AJ takes a long languid drink!

Always One to Accessorize!



We have been upgrading our closets in our house using the Elfa system from The Container Store. I love all the organizational drawers, shelves, etc. However, I think my favorite organizational accoutrement is their clear vinyl bag organizer!
It's the perfect way to store my work bags up off the floor and in our closet!



I had to modify mine so that I could hang it on a half rack, by cutting off the last four pockets. It was easy to do, however, and I liked the polished look.

If you enjoy being as organized as I do, The Container Store is a wonderland! Grab your 8 pocket organizer here!
