As Seen on TV

Lately our "office" in our house has no resemblance of it's so called name. Maybe it's the dusty elliptical machine in the middle of the room, the storage bins full of baby clothes, toys, paraphernalia, the Christmas gifts stacked in the corner, the piles of left over first birthday decoration.. you name it. Since we are hosting Christmas this year, we thought it best to do some serious cleaning out of the room. First task - move the elliptical machine to the garage. Check. Second - store Mackenzie's clothes, toys, paraphernalia somewhere else. To check off this task we did something I don't think we ever done - we bought an "As Seen on TV" product. Have you seen the commercial for these:

I read some reviews online and found that the basic bags weren't that great, but the underbed tote bag was much better. So we bought 3 of these:

Here are the "before" pictures of 2 of the bags:


Here is the "after" picture with all 3 bags!

Now they are all sotred under our bed and the tub is storing bottles, sterilizer, bathtub...a lot of bulky stuff that space saver bags can't help. We also moved some of the bigger, bulkier items to the garage and I was able to throw away or sort the birthday stuff I mentioned. While we still have a few minor things to clean out and sort, our "office" is finally starting to live up to it's name!

  1. Doesn't it feel great to clean out? I wish I had that feeling more often! :) And those bags...I may need to invest!
