With Thanksgiving right around the corner, I can just taste that yummy pumpkin pie! Mmmm! And I bet you and your family are getting ready for this delicious American tradition as well!
However before you start digging into that Turkey wouldn't you like to know more about this holiday and why we celebrate it? Of course many of you know it was founded by the Pilgrims of Plymouth Rock and the Native Americans, but did you know that the holiday wasn't a national holiday until Abraham Lincoln declared it 1863? Also at the first Thanksgiving there wasn't any pumpkin pie served, instead it was just pumpkins minus the pie. I'm glad that tradition has changed!

When first meeting me, you would never know, that one of my favorite things to do is walk through an organization store and image all things I could do, to organize my home. However, the thing that keeps me from buying out the whole store, is of course the price. There are so many projects I would love to do, if only the prices weren't so steep.
Well if you are like me, I have the perfect solution for you! Jessica Hill, from Mad In Crafts, has come up with a list of 100 items you can purchase from the Dollar Store, to organize your entire house. It's completely ok to do double take with that last sentence; however, you did read it correctly! You can organize your entire home just by shopping at your local Dollar Store.
