LESLIE LIKES: Myabetic Diabetes Wallet

National Diabetes Month Featured Product

Myabetic OrganizerNovember is National Diabetes Month and in its honor, I am spotlighting one of my favorite organizing products for those with Diabetes — the Myabetic Banting Diabetes Wallet. Back in 2013, I actually co-authored the award-winning book, The Complete Diabetes Organizer: Your Guide to a Less Stressful, More Manageable Diabetes Life. In addition to being fortunate enough to get to know the Myabetic products, I was also able to feature them in our book!

Tired of concealing the drab pouch of diabetic supplies she always had to carry, Kyrra Richards designed some more fashionable ones—and started selling them. Her chic cases are sold in Target stores and online.

It’s time to start preparing and getting organized for back to school! I personally love this time of year, seeing all of the fresh  new school supplies lining the isles.

And I have been so excited that I’ve actually recorded several videos sharing my very favorite items.  If you haven’t already, you can check them out over on our Facebook page – Order Out of Chaos.

Before you know it it will be time for the kids to head back to school. Take advantage of the summertime and plan now for an organized school year. There are tons of great organizing school supplies out there, and one of them that is often over looked is a great lunchbox organization system. It’s no secret that the better our children eat, the better they are able to focus, the more energy they will have and the better they will feel. Being organized and planning ahead helps end the morning chaos too. Below are a few of my top picks to organize those healthy lunch-boxes packed with brain foods!

Clear Shoe Bags

organizingYes, you heard me. Organizing products don’t have to be expensive. A clear shoe bag is the perfect go-to organizing product for every room in your house. I recommend to my clients to hang them in the bedroom closets to house jewelry and accessories, behind their bathroom doors for makeup, on the pantry closet door for grab-n-go snacks, pet supplies and other small items that get lost in the “junk drawer”. My son uses one to organize all his electronic cords and paraphernalia. The list of uses is endless! I have one in almost every room of my home.
