Great Idea for Closet Clutter

Love this super easy idea I saw on Pinterest.

(Photo NOT my own, courtesy of original blog post on

Each year on January 1st, turn all your hangers around backwards. As you wear the item of clothing, hang it back up on a hanger facing the correct way. After 6 months, 12 months, whatever you like, you can easily tell which items you haven't worn. Then you need to get brave and donate them. Unless you have a really, really, like seriously good reason. I think I'm going to try this. I'll let you know how it works out!

Cranberry Salsa

This is a great recipe for the holidays - easy, festive, beautiful, and delicious! My mom came across this recipe for cranberry salsa a few years ago and it's been a family tradition ever since! This is a good one to bring to parties and potlucks!

  • 1 (12 ounce) bag of fresh cranberries
  • 1 bunch cilantro, chopped
  • 1 bunch green onions, chopped
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced
  • 2 limes, juiced
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 pinch salt
Combine cranberries, cilantro, green onions, jalapeno pepper, lime juice, sugar, and salt in the bowl of your food processor, and chop to desired consistency. Our food processor is not big enough for this entire batch at once, so I mix it in a bowl, and then put it into the food processor in batches. This salsa is best made the night before or a few hours before, and refrigerated so that the flavors have a chance to blend, but do not make more than a day in advance. Serve with tortilla chips.
