DIY Organization

Okay here are a couple of things I did recently. I'm working on a new way to arrange my shoes because my old shoe shelf was leaning. So once I worked on that I had the left over shoe shelf, here is what I did with it.

I hung my necklaces on it.

Also, I saw on Pinterest the idea of putting all your user manuals in a binder. I tried that and it was extremely bulky and they easily slipped out the top. So I put them in pocket folders instead. I also put all our board game instructions in a clear pocket folder so they wouldn't be loose in the boxes.

Easy Shepherd's Pie

Last night I made Shepherd's pie. I found the recipe 5 years ago but I don't remember where.
1 lb ground beef (I used pork because I was out of beef)
2 cups mashed potatoes
2 cloves garlic
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
4 oz cream cheese
4 cups canned or frozen veggies (i used green beans)
1 cup beef gravy

Preheat oven to 375. Brown meat in skillet. Meanwhile, mix potatoes, cream cheese, 1/2 cup cheddar cheese and the garlic until blended.
Drain meat. Mix veggies and gravy with meat. Add meat mix to 9-inch dish; cover with potato mix and cheddar cheese.
Bake 20 min

Tie front blouse

How do you tell if a blousy top is too big? I mean, it is supposed to be large so how do you tell if it doesn't fit.
Top:Goodwill $1
Skirt: JC Penny $11
Belt: Charming Charly's $5
Shoes: Shoes r 8.88  $8.88
Necklace: old
Earrings: Gift from mom

This top is an example. It fits in the shoulders and sleeves but I'm not sure if it is too full where it tucks in to the skirt. Also I know I am pale, too bad.

This is from today. I found this button up shirt that fits absolutely perfectly. I may have to try to make a pattern from this.
Shirt: Goodwill $1.29/lb
Jeans: Goodwill $1
Camisole: Walmart gift
