DIY Organizing Containers made from Upcycled Cat Litter Pails

It’s spring and we’ve been doing some Spring cleaning including the garage. I wanted some containers that would fit on our shelves and hold the objects that tend to clutter up spaces. The cat litter pails worked awesome! They were very simple to prep and label. Now our balls, sand toys and play tools have a place. I think I may be adding some to our collection…..there’s chalk, bubble toys and maybe even my gardening tools.

Homemade Rhubarb Preserves

Homemade rhubarb preserves is an easy recipe with only 3 ingredients!

Creamy Cauliflower Vegetable Soup

This is the creamiest tastiest cauliflower vegetable soup you will ever need to make. I discovered this recipe totally by accident and I am so glad that I did.
