New Sponsor Welcome

Please welcome Living Savvy's newest sponsor!

[Kimberly Moore]



I grew up in the Seattle area but traded my rain boots in for skis when I moved to UT. I graduated from BYU, fell in love with a boy, and moved to Salt Lake City for good [at least for now]! Interior design is my passion and my profession. My style is me. My inspiration is the world. 

From being published in House of Fifty to getting my 15 minutes of fame on KSL Studio 5 to being featured on so many wonderful blogs, I've stretched my little designer self to new heights. All I can say is there's so much more to learn. So please stay a while and be a part of this little design studio with me.

I am excited to have Kimberly as a sponsor, she has amazing design style and I always find her blog enjoyable to read!  If you don't already read Third Floor Design Studio, be sure to take the time to check it out!

If you are interested in becoming a sponsor of Living Savvy or purchasing advertisement please 
for rates and terms!  We would love to work with you!

I will be back tomorrow with my house filled with "love" decor!
{better late then never, right?!?!?}

Hey Living Savvy readers!  I'm Lisa from Shine Your Light and I am loving this organizing series over here at Tiffany's - how about you?

Two years ago my family of five downsized, and in our newest home I am challenged by the old adage "A place for everything and everything in it's place".

I recently tackled the storage of hand-me-down clothes in my kids' rooms.  My boys are almost 4 years apart, and there are always stacks of clothes waiting for my little guy to grow into that can't find room in his tiny closet.  The solution:  maximizing our under-the-bed storage capacity.

I put my older son's queen sized bed on risers, and instantly got six feet of awesome out-of-site storage space.  The casters of the bed fit right into the risers and are easy to place, and my son feels like he's sleeping in a hotel with the bed so high!

The key to keeping an under the bed storage space organized is to use containers that are easy to access and are clearly labeled.

When I store clothes away I always throw a couple of these fresheners into the box to ward off mustiness.  They last for ages!  I've been using the same ones for four or five years and they still keep our stored clothes smelling fresh.

Using bed risers is great for creating storage space, but it makes a bedskirt about 5 inches too short. Simply cut the bedskirt from the middle panel that lays across the boxspring and staple it directly onto the boxspring frame, so that it skims the floor and hides all your stuff!

If you don't already utilize it, consider under your beds for extra bed linens, out of season clothing, shoes, toys or luggage.  The possibilities are endless and the space is there -  you might as well take advantage of it!

Brilliant, Lisa! I had no idea there were risers like that, what a simple fix, and thanks for the tip on the bedskirt, too!

Great idea on the casters! Was looking for a way to rise my daughters bed! Headed to the container store for those!

Those are great tips, Lisa! I love the bed risers. I need to do that, my bed it too low to put anything under it.
