My “Reset Girl Collections” Organization

I think that organizing has become my hobby. Truth be told, I find certain items irresistible when out “a-thriftin’. And one of them is vintage suitcases.

I found this white Samsonite beauty at the Goodwill for …are you ready?…$3.99! Luckily for me, they don’t consider the “60”s vintage, or this would have ended up in their online store. Score!

(And the fact that I am not considered “Vintage” having been born in the “60”s makes me pretty happy too!)

I think it was Cori’s “Paper Punch Buffet” idea that gave me the inspiration that this would be the ideal organizer for each month’s collection. This little tray is the perfect organizer for all my fussy cuts and punchables. All my girls fit beautifully in that front area, Love!

This month’s Collection is titled “Homemade”, and I absolutely LOVE it! The colors are perfect, a few fall colors excellently combined with pastels. A wonderful rest for the eye with all the earthy tones surrounding us this season!

A few of the items I keep in there at all times: paper pieces, washi tape, sticker paper, Reset Girl tissue paper (when Cori sent her orders in boxes), and my sweet little TRG Camp Reset pouch with a selection of doilies.

Everything fits in there just beautifully! I’m careful with what I put in the pockets because the elastic is a bit old.

There’s even enough room for journals!

Since my husband and I have purchased a little vacation/retirement home, we travel back and forth quite a bit, so I am definitely getting a lot of use from my vintage train cases.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this little peek into this month’s collection! Here is a coupon for 80% off any regularly priced digital item in TheResetGirl shop

As always,

Thank You so much for stopping by,

Have a great week,

Listers Gotta List: Days 5 thru 13

It’s been a long time since I’ve used an ephemera collection, so I had forgotten how much fun it is, and convenient!

We are almost halfway through October’s “Listers Gotta List” challenge, and halfway into the month…where did it go!? I’m using “TheResetGirl’s” October collection “Little Things” throughout this challenge.

Days 5 & 6: I didn’t share much about this little insert before I started working in it. It’s made from 14 pieces of various colored card stock 8 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, stapled down the middle, folded in half,  then trimmed to a standard size insert, approx.  4 1/4″ x 8 1/4″.

Days 7 & 8: Playing around with the embellishments like these tags are one of my favorite pastimes. As you can see, I’ve been getting the ink stamps out again.

Days 9 & 10: Some lists are easier than others. I take a lot of road trips now, so day 9 was pretty easy.  I could have used more room for day 10, housework and organizing have been on my mind a lot lately.

Days 11, 12, & 13: Because I didn’t plan out the number of pages in this insert very well, I’m having to bunch three days onto a few of the pages. It worked out though, I knew that flower would come in handy, I don’t shop at dollar stores much.

Well, that’s the latest around here. It’s great to have the ListersGottaList challenge back again! If you are interested in any of the above, please follow the links I provided and have a look-see!

As always, thank you for stopping by,

Have a great week,
