0 September Sponsor Shout Out!

I adore days like to day because it's my way of being able to give back to those that make my world and this blog go round.  I am so fortunate to do what I do so today I am giving out a GIANT appreciation hug {and smooches} to my super fabulous sponsors!

Don’t you hate scrubbing your refrigerator bins and surfaces? So do we! And now you don’t have to. We’re the husband and wife duo behind Fridge Coaster. Fridge Coasters are super absorbent “liners” that come in different sizes to fit all high traffic areas in your refrigerator. Place under produce in the crispers to keep your veggies fresh longer, or under milk and salad dressing in the doors to absorb drips that would normally dry to the bottom of your bin, ewww.

Fridge Coasters provide time saving function and fashion to the inside of your refrigerator. In addition, we’re really proud to say that our sustainable product is made 100% in the USA of 30% (or more) post consumer product. We then use a UV-dried printing process which means the ink never bleeds beyond its original printed shape even when fully submerged in water! How awesome is that? Long story short, Fridge Coasters will save you a ton of time and put a smile on your face every time you open the fridge!

More fun facts about Fridge Coaster:
  • Fridge Coasters come in 4 fantastic colors and 3 fun prints so please mix and match 
  • Receive FREE shipping on all orders over $30 through 10/15, no code necessary 
  • The holidays are quickly approaching and Fridge Coasters make an awesome housewarming or hostess gift 

Receive FREE shipping on the Fridge Coaster website when you spend $30 or more! They also ship to Canada!


My pal 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 See Jane Work was born. 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!

You can connect with See Jane Work by checking out their website here, their Facebook page here and following them on Twitter here.

    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 and incredible freebie organizing printables here:



    Uppercase Living embellishments and expressions are the ideal decor item because they are an unforgettable way to express your unique style and personality.  Expressions are made of a very thin, flexible, vinyl and they are backed with a light adhesive for easy application.  They can be applied to just about any clean, smooth, and weather-resistant surface and remove easily with no trace that it was ever there!

    They have endless customization options, to help you with any organizing project!
