After 3 years, our family spent the last two days of the Holy Week in Baguio City once again but this time, we stayed in a transient house and the whole trip was my dad’s treat! Yup, that was the best part of it heehee!

I was already feeling hopeless upon knowing that majority of the accommodation and hotels that I checked were fully booked. My fault! I started checking houses and hotels 2 weeks before the trip.

So I started asking around from fellow bloggers whom I know have contacts in Baguio City. Thanks to Mommy Chats! Immediately, I looked it up on FB and contacted the numbers posted there. Faes Transient House it is!We were still lucky to get a 3BR unit with 2 Bathrooms, and a kitchen where you can cook, despite the late booking. Just perfect for all of us! There were 9 of us so it will be cheaper if we prepare our meals which also didn’t happen due to our squeezed time. But at least we were able to save our breakfast expenses heehee!

I admit, I am lazy. Household chores are not for me. My mother (and husband) know/s that. But it doesn’t mean that a lazy person cannot be organized. I am very particular of organizing stuff from documents down to hair trinkets, except the times when I really really get lazy heehee!

Now let’s talk about shoes…. Imagine having 2 girls and a lady in a household. Expect having dozens of pairs stored in one corner of the house. Masakit sa mata. That one particular corner obviously needs to be organized, without excuses. So I bought two pieces of Amazing Shoe Rack from Lazada. It’s amazingly beautiful and neat but it can’t hold the weight of  all the shoes that we have. I had to ignore one corner of our house for sometime after one rack collapsed. Until I chanced upon a fellow mommy blogger’s post on FB where she used shoe boxes as her shoe organizer. I had to have that and yes I did a couple of weeks later.

The shoe box materials come unfolded. At first, I had a hard time figuring out how to assemble the lid but when I got the hang of it, I finished assembling two dozens of boxes in less than an hour.
