    My apartment is about the size of a doll house, so I love space-saving anything. But in order to really work for me, a piece must do double-duty. I'm talking serious multifunctionality -- look good, do two different jobs, and maybe even fold the laundry. (Someone is going to invent that someday ... ) Here's 7 very chic double-duty ideas that will help keep the clutter at bay.

    I have a beauty junkie confession to make: the bathroom drawers where I keep (most of) (ok, some of) my makeup and product stash are in states of complete disgrace. I mean, I should probably submit myself to one of those reality shows, like Hoarders. They're absolute chaos. Are your drawers like this or am I alone?

    Wait, actually, don't tell me ...

    Oh summer! My absolute favorite time of year, but it goes by so fast, doesn't it? Come Labor Day, everything is a blur of sunscreen scented pool towels, fireflies, long car rides, and ice cream -- and it all fades so fast when the focus turns to the new school year, slip-sliding right into the holidays. Ahhh! I take a zillion photos all summer, but most of them never even end up getting printed out.

    You don't have to be "crafty" to do any of these things, you just need to want to keep some of those  special summer memories preserved for ever. They're worth it!

    I'm just gonna come out with it: I have this super lame addiction to watching Storage Wars, especially late night reruns. I was a little bummed (read: very) when I heard that the show is rigged, but it still didn't make me love it any less. Heck, this cast is a riot! Which is why today's big Storage Wars news makes me bummed. Apparently A&E is cutting back on the screen time for its three main players. Yup, fans will be seeing a lot less of Darrell Sheets, Dan, and Laura Dotson next season.

    According to Radar Online, Sheets was frozen out of six extra episodes of the show. Rumor has it that the gambler was pissed, and that the big motivation for cutting him out after all of the drama that happened with Dave Hester's lawsuit was money. 

    I mean, I get it I guess. But in my eyes this is a pretty dangerous move on A&E's part to save money. Getting rid of the main characters isn't going to make fans want to stick around. Unless, that is, the containers get REALLY interesting.

    I think there are parts of minimalism that really appeal to me. Less stuff equals less clutter, right? But unless you're super dedicated to that sort of endeavor, the reality of living with kids sets in fast, and before you know it you're tripping on Tonka trucks and finding broken crayons on the bottom of your purse. With that in mind, I've put together a few good inspirations to help you kick the kid clutter to the curb (or storage basket) where it belongs.

    The first? Use painter or washi tape to hang some of your child's best artwork rather than letting it sit out on the counter or clog up a drawer. It's a great non-permanent way to display their creativity at the cost of a few rolls of tape and zero damage to your walls.

    Just like massive football linebackers, your kitchen pantry can be one horrific thing to try and tackle. OK, so the joke is lame -- but in all seriousness, standing in front of a chock-full cabinet, organizing and cleaning out the shelves isn't exactly anyone's idea of the perfect Sunday afternoon activity.

    Nevertheless, it has to get done every once in a while. Things goop and gob, jars get shelved again that have nothing left inside, and let's be real -- that can of soup you don't even like that you bought solely for the fact that it was 25 cents? Yeah, you don't need that anymore.

    Check out these 5 painless tips for cleaning out your pantry in minutes:

    Ugh. Aren't any reality shows real anymore? Not too long ago, the news broke that House Hunters is fake, and now it looks like A&E's hit show Storage Wars might be rigged too.

    David Hester, the former star of the show, has filed a lawsuit because he believes he was dropped from Storage Wars when he went to producers and complained about aspects of the show being rigged.

    Fans (like my husband) find it so exciting to watch the cast members bid on storage units and then make a ton of cash because there are all sorts of treasures hidden inside. Well, Hester claims that some of the more precious finds inside the units are actually planted there before the bidding starts, making the big reveal a whole lot more thrilling than it would be otherwise.

    Be careful what you post on Craigslist. And be sure you're very, very explicit about exactly what it is you're offering, or you could wind up like one poor Georgia family.

    Facing foreclosure on their home of 20 years, Pam Hobbs and her son lost even more when a yard sale posting on Craigslist gave people the impression that it wasn't just the furniture in the driveway they were giving away for free. Folks were welcome to come into their home and take anything -- and everything -- they could get their hands on. Total. Chaos.
