Same same – but different, and Raskog trolley!

Malak and I are friends, we share the same passion about organization, but this doesn’t mean we adopt the same style.

That is why this post, and the next few ones, will be what we call “shared posts”.

How many times did you want to change bags before going out, then deciding against it so you don’t go through moving all your bag contents from one bag to another. Continue reading

Organizing cords and chargers

Last year, every time I said goodbye to my husband when he was going away on a business trip, I used to get the same dreading feeling deep down inside, “I will be struggling the next few days till he is back”… and do you know why? because I wont be able to charge my gadgets..or at least one of them!
