They are all amazing for endless reasons and I sincerely appreciate that you give them some love back for all their support of IHeart Organizing.

Holly Bohn is the Founder and Creative Director of See Jane Work

Yes we are busy, but we can still have fun. And we can still express our individuality. That is why they started See Jane Work. They know you don't have time to search every website that comes up on Google looking for a notebook that says a little more about you than, "I got a coupon in the mail from Office Mart." You want something that says, "I am unique. I have style. I will not wear sweatpants to a meeting with a client ever again, no matter how late I am running."

They feel inspiration comes a little easier to those writing their thoughts in a pink leather journal rather than on the back of an envelope.

See Jane Work appreciates your business, so much so that they have created Jane's Rewards; a way for you to earn points doing what you love... shopping at

See Jane Work has a new line available exclusively at Office Depot!

Michelle runs an time and money saving blog that is sure to make all of your lives easier!  Michelle's title says it all.  It's quite amazing really and absolutely worth looking at.  YOU can cook 5 dinners in just ONE hour too!!

Here's how:

Michelle has created a plan to cook all 5 dinners for the week in just ONE hour. All the menu plans have family friendly meals that feed 4-6 people and no, they are not all casseroles. :)

The meals are fresh, not frozen. They keep in your refrigerator until ready to heat and eat!

You could spend one hour on a Saturday or Sunday preparing 5 meals for your busy week!!  Yep, it only costs you the cost of the groceries and the one hour time investment, and you have meals for the whole week!  Done!

Not only does the fact that you can make 5 dinners in one hour sound incredible, but nothing is better than coming home from work and having your dinner already prepared before you run off to that kiddo's sporting event or music lesson.  It saves money on eating out and causes so much less stress in trying to find time to feed your family on a busy work/school night!  This is such music to this mom's ears I tell you!!!

Janery is an Etsy shop offering handmade pillows & coordinating pet beds. Products are carefully sewn for durability, and pillow covers have invisible zippers in the bottom seam, so that both sides of the pillow can be shown off.  Jane tries to purchase supplies that are Made in the USA and sold by small, family-owned businesses as much as possible, and a portion of all proceeds are donated to the local homeless shelter.

New in the shop:  Pretty Pup Pads!
  • When customers kept asking Jane to create larger versions of her Modern Catnip Purr Pads for their dogs, cozy Pretty Pup Pads were born.  These low profile, totally washable dog beds can stylishly protect your pup’s favorite spot on the furniture, or can be used wherever you want a stylish dog bed.
  • Coordinating pillow covers can be added to kick your home's style up another notch.  
  • Each bed is made-to-order with your choice of 16 colorful, modern fabrics - and the size can be tweaked to perfectly fit your space.

*Due to the custom nature of the Pretty Pup Pads, and Jane's upcoming wedding {woohoo!} only a limited number of orders will be accepted each week from now through May.

Jane also blogs about starting a business and decorating a rental home at The Borrowed Abode.  You can follow her on Twitter or Facebook

Special offer for IHeart Organizing readers:  save 10% on your ENTIRE purchase with the code IHEARTFEB, through March 1st.

Buttoned Up, Inc. was founded in 2004 by four women, three sisters and a best friend...
They realized the necessity for a tool like Life.doc after experiencing significant life changes − from moving across the country to setting up house after 9/11 to getting divorced after 38 years of marriage to having kids and grand-kids. Each of them felt the need to get their lives organized but were unable to find products that could help them control their chaos. They wanted to be liberated from the rigid organizational systems that they bought annually and stopped using after just a few weeks.
After several years of trial, error, effort and research, they started Buttoned Up whose mission is to give women the tools they need to live an organized life not a life of organization.

They currently offer all sorts of great document kits to keep you organized in every aspect of your life!
{Life.doc, Moving.kit, File.starter, Medical.doc}

You can also find all sorts of organizing tips and topics they share on their blog!

The new 2012 Weekly.agenda planner is specifically designed to prevent the 3 productivity-killing mistakes most people make: failure to prioritize, missing opportunities to batch similar tasks, and neglecting to plan ahead.

For someone who is a tad obsessed with cleaning and organizing, imagine the match made in heaven that was discovered when I found Toni, from a Bowl Full of Lemons!  She currently runs a blog that gives me my daily fix of all things IHeart, she is quite impressive in her ALL of her many skills!

It's funny because we often joke about how we could be long lost sisters with how much we have in common!  It's so much fun having such a good blog buddy!  And I LOVE her weekly project link up parties.  So much inspiration to be found!  Not only does the multi-talented Toni run an awesome blog, she also sells Shaklee, which are awesome products!

When you pick Shaklee, you will know three things to be true. It is always safe. It always works. And it is always green.  Win win and win right?! Here is a fact that knocked my socks off, "Through the sale of Shaklee Get Clean® Basic H2® in the last year alone, Shaklee has eliminated 2.7 billion bottles of conventional, ready-to-use 26-ounce window cleaner — if placed end-to-end, these bottles would wrap around the earth more than 18 times!"
