Last month I shared some easy to follow fall cleaning checklists, and if you have been working your way through your home like I have, you may have come to the realization that you need more storage space. I found myself wishing for something that would allow me to quickly organize all the extra items we have accumulated, yet be pretty enough to use in a room rather than tucked into a closet.

 I found the perfect storage organizing solution when BryLaneHome asked me if I’d like to try one of their home organizing products free of charge and share my thoughts here with you.  Since I’d planned on sharing some organizing tips, I happily agreed.  All opinions are my own.

Knowing that my bedroom closet and part of my dresser had become a storage haven for everything from extra bedding to craft supplies, I chose the BryLaneHome 10 drawer storage organizer in neutral.

I wanted a functional yet stylish piece that looked like it belonged in our bedroom.  I am really pleased with how well the organizer looks in this unused space.  Not only does it match my neutral color scheme, the sturdier construction and attention to detail gives it the look and feel of a piece of furniture.

First, I gathered up some overflow books that had been hiding out of a shelf and put them in a bottom drawer to add weight and stability as I filled the drawers.  Even though this organizer comes with a sturdy metal frame and wood top, it’s always best to put heavy items on the bottom.

Next, I found a bunch of craft supplies that had been way up on a shelf in a bag. I didn’t even remember I had those cool copper beads! As you can see, I can add lots of stuff to each drawer.

 It will take me several days to fill all these roomy drawers because I am taking my time and clearing out one area of my closet and bedroom at a time. Slow and steady is the way to go with this organizing job.

It is the end of the year my friends and I can’t think of a better way to end a great year of reviews than with 3 product reviews! was kind enough to send me 3 office supply products shown below free of charge in the hopes I would share my thoughts with you. All opinions are 100% in own and may differ from yours.

Product 1: Rolling Wrist Rest:
The rolling wrist rest is ergonomically designed to help reduce joint stress. Independent 360 degree wheel rotation makes it easy to work with your mouse or keyboard without lifting your wrist.

My Review:
Old methods die hard, so even though I have used the rolling wrist rest for a few days, I still find myself lifting my wrist more often than not. In time I may get used to utilizing it. I do find my wrist feels less fatigued just resting it on the wrist rest while I read online, so I do recommend this product for those of us that work a lot online, or on a computer. You can learn more about this product here.

Product 2: Smarter Dual Action Gloves:
Microfiber, dual action Smarter Gloves are a smartphone users dream come true. No longer do you have to take off your glove to answer a call. These gloves provide any finger activation, touchscreen cleaning and are washable & reusable. Perfect for your tablets, readers, music, Navigation systems and more.

My Review:
I was excited to give these gloves a try during our last cold snap. I’m happy to report they really do work! I kept my gloves on to answer calls, clean my screen and share pictures on Instragram. I did have to take my glove off to text though because I grew frustrated with my misspelled words. As with the wrist roller, I think there is a learning curve and the more I use these gloves the more proficient at texting with them I’ll become. I like them and think you will too! You can learn more about this product here.

Product 3: ReStor-It Furniture Touch-up Kit:
For use on wood and wood laminates pieces like cabinets, doors, frames and more.  This set of 3 filler sticks and 5 touch-up markers fills and stains to restore beauty to furniture.

My Review:
I couldn’t wait to try this out on a few new dings our Cherry Entertainment center took over Christmas. Since my husband is a custom furniture and cabinet maker, I let him do the honors. He was very pleased with this set saying it is the most comprehensive touch-up kit he’s seen short of a professional one and he liked the way the product did what it was supposed to do quickly and easily. I loved the fact that I can no longer see scratches in my entertainment center. We do highly recommend this product! You can learn more about it here.

That’s it folks- my last reviews of 2013. Thanks so much for reading them. I hope you found them helpful in making a purchasing decision. That is why I do what I do here on my little blog that could.
