They’re great place to keep the clutter out of mom’s way and one of my favorite organizing tips is to use open-top bins to keep your sneakers in, in that way the kids can easily put them in there and they’re out of the way. But what I don’t love about sneakers is the stinky smell. So here’s a great tip for all of you moms.

Jill Cordes: Do you know the saying, “Every peny counts”? Well, wind off with that to the test.
