Alison's Blog - The need to spring clean

I don’t know about you but I’ve been captured by the need to spring clean! It was a hive of activity at our house over Easter weekend; a couple of trips to the tip to throw away the dodgy lawn mowers that don’t work and making space to store away my winter wardrobe and duvets. Well I need to make space for my ‘secret’ shopping trip next week. It’s this time of year you can struggle to find storage space for your bulky items. However, the Packmate High Volume Vacuum Storage bags to the rescue, once again! Add the plastic storage boxes or totes and you can store away your items safely and neatly until next winter. Store the boxes...

Alison's Blog - Ski wear storage secrets

So I’ve just experienced my first winter holiday, normally I’d opt for sun, sand and sea, but this year my husband convinced me to try hitting the slopes, and it was…well…different. Although I did come back with tan lines, but they were goggle shaped, and on my face. Jokes aside – I did have fun and I learnt some lessons along the way... the main one being the chair lifts.

Alison's Blog - Bonfire Night

Alison's Blog - Organised for Autumn

Being a busy, working mum of two, who is still trying to hold on to my ‘youth’, my passion for all things organised helps me to, almost, squeeze everything into life that I want to. I’m Alison. Just hit the ‘Fab at 40’ milestone. My little family is crazy in the best possible way. My friends are crazier, and I love them all the more for it. As you might guess, life can get pretty hectic. In recent years I seem to have adopted a nickname - Monica! And if you’ve ever seen the show ‘Friends’ – you’ll understand why. I’m mega organised, I like to keep things clean, tidy and in order (which doesn’t annoy the hubby at all)....
