Some Things I Love

I have been saying that on the inside I am an organised person and my current state of disorganisation is not the way I really am. Many aspects of my life are very organised, but my household clutter is the main area of disorganisation.  I am almost OCD about organising other parts of my life.  See aside from my household clutter, which I do keep secret to a degree and out of the eyes of friends popping over for a visit, the rest of my life is really very organised.  I am a list writer, always shop with lists, before going away on vacation I write various packing lists...  Suitcase, hand luggage, shopping for trip etc.   I have a diary/organiser that I could not live without and I also use the calendar on my iphone so I an never late for or forget appointments or things that may need to be done in a day.  It is the household clutter.  Oddly I can't stand the house to be dirty, I clean and like everything to be clean its just the clutter and not putting things away.

Anyway I thought I would share some of the things that I love and things that keep me organised in other parts of my life.  I know that many of my followers are from the USA and other countries and there are not a lot of stores that we have that you don't have, in fact the USA has so many stores that I wish would come to Australia.....  Pottery Barn.... Pottery Barn Kids.... Oh I should not have got myself started, LOL.... I could go on forever, there are just too many to name.  But we have a store here in Australia that is only in another two countries at this stage (New Zealand and Singapore).  It started here in Australia and it is such a lovely store I could move in there.  Yes that's right I would be quite happy to pack up the family and move to a Kikki K store, LOL.

So I thought I would share some of the things that I love from Kikki K ( There are just so many things that I have from this shop that I love, so I will only share a few in this post.

Being that it is now 2011, I thought I would share my 2011 diary.  It is so cute, just the most gorgeous diary I have had and when they first came out, a friend and I were wandered in and saw this diary and both said at the same time "Oh that is sooo cute".  The sales assistant said to us "Funny you say that, it is actually called "Cute Diary".  So of course one of those was added to my basket (along with the one of the matching pens)

Another thing I LOVE from Kikki K is the My Receipts Folder. It is such a great little folder (and it isn't huge).  It has little pockets inside and you write the month and then there is an area to list the date and store, so when you need to go back and find a receipt for something, you can see on the outside of the each months pocket which stores receipts are inside.  I LOVE this little folder.

My final favourite thing that I use all the time is the Door Notepad.  It is a notepad that is shaped like one of those things that they have at hotels, where you hang the sign on your door for the housekeeper to make up your room or do not disturb.  This has come in handy so many times.  I write things that I can not forget to take as I am running out the door (so many times I would race out the door in the morning to get my son to school, have something sitting on the console by the door to grab as I raced past and i would forget)  Well this little notepad is just awesome.  You just hang write down whatever it is you need to remember, hang it on your front door and presto, as you race out the door, you see your list hanging on the door and if you have forgotten the item, you can race back and get it.

So that's my reviews for the day.  I don't work for Kikki-K at all, I just love the store and so many of the products.  You can spend ages in there (and a lot of money, LOL).

Good stuff. I use a wallet that holds 3x5" notecards to not forget things I think of when I'm out and about. The best thing about the notecards is that they can be pitched when they cease to be useful.

Good luck with your decluttering. I'm doing some myself today.
