Whether it be a small bathroom or perhaps even a small kitchen, getting around and managing life's every day to do's in smaller spaces has the potential to be the bane of most everyone’s existence. Keeping organized, minimizing clutter, maintaining spaces, and keeping an open mind can change off of that for the positive! Trying to find a good home for all of the things that belong in this room can be a challenge that gets put off time and time again until it finally becomes too much. Amazingly enough, organizing a small bathroom or kitchen is a task that can be managed with success. Accomplishing the feat of having everything within its designated place and all things organized can be incredibly liberating. Coming home to a bunch of extra stuff

When people think of Idaho, they probably are not thinking about great cities with massive populations and lots of traffic problems. That is something that New York and California have going for them, though people associate Idaho with wide-open spaces and a lot of nature, plus the potato. While this is probably one of the biggest draws for Idaho, it is not the only thing going on in the state. There may have been a time where Idaho was just one big empty space with a few towns sprinkled around, but that has not been the case for a while and the state is quickly moving faster and faster towards something else. Boise, Idaho, the capital of the state, is a flourishing and continually growing metropolis with a relatively large population and a lot of

The Pacific Northwest, or the Northwest for short, is arguably one of the most scenic regions of the United States of America. WIth mountainous vistas, verdant forestry, bountiful rivers and, in fine, just about any piece of wilderness you could imagine or want, the Northwestern United States just about has it all. Idaho, the Gem State of the Northwest, is no exception, but one thing that sets Idaho apart from a good chunk of the Northwest is that, for the most part, the entire state of Idaho experiences all four seasons. This might seem like a no-brainer to most, but for Idahoans, such a fact is, in fact, quite the boon.

With that fact comes a host of possibilities for year-round enjoyment, whether it be something as simple as watching the seasons

Winter in the Treasure Valley is somewhat like one out of a fairytale. The snow-capped mountains visible in the distance as the towns grow sleepy in the cold. There are great coffee shops and stores to find refuge in if you are wanting to stay near home and just spend a day of spending time indoors and out of the cold. There are great places to go that are indoors and outdoors for you in the winter. There are museums, theaters and more all over Boise. In the Treasure Valley, however, it is not as popular to stay indoors when there is snow on the ground. People like to find little ponds to go ice fishing at or go somewhere to ski, snowboard, and sled. There is a ski resort in Boise called Bogus Basin that is a great place to spend the day skiing or

There are a great deal of means and ways to get around when you are scheduled to be some place or you want to get across town for some reason or another. Some of the time getting around town might be more fun on a bike and at times can also prove to be a more affordable method of travel. For a large portion of the province of Idaho, a bike won't get you far due to seasonal changes as well as varying and demanding topography. For the Boise area though there is a ton of room between things which makes traveling by bike more pleasant and more of a reasonable consideration. Travel distances depending on the desired location are generally not too significant to accomplish most common travels such as going

The vividly colorful landscapes of the fall season make for a spectacular time of year to take advantage of getting outdoors and to explore or perhaps enjoy past time favorites and some seasonally preferred activities of choice. The Fall Season weather is mild and the seasonal colors create a lovely presentation throughout the city of Boise and flow generously up into the Boise Foothills and Boise Mountain Range. Autumn in Boise has a way of inspiring seasonally unique specialty dishes and fall food favorites, create the backdrop for cooler weather adventures, and is an excellent time for discovering a cozy fireside retreat and taking to Idaho's backcountry for exploring before winter arrives. These are simply a few of Idaho's Fall activities in and

Aside from the Boise River and the Boise River Greenbelt, there is a treasure that the Ridge to Rivers Partnership bestows area residents and visitors alike. The Ridge to Rivers Partnership consists of the City of Boise, Ada County, and the Bureau of Land Management Four Rivers Field Office, Boise National Forest, and the Department of Idaho Fish and Game collectively with the goal of preserving and necessary maintenance of the trails. The Ridge to River Trail System could easily be described as the epitome of opportunity for area exploration within the Boise Foothills region. As adventurers tour the trails, it becomes valuable to reserve time to pause and marvel at the gorgeous mountain views and truly stunning scenery as the trails meander across

Idaho winters may be a bit cold for some. Despite a season of wintry white snow, one of the many reasons why Boise is such a great place to call home is the four seasons it experiences. These distinct four seasons delightfully complement an array of year-round outdoor activity opportunities from snowy slopes to summer splashes; the Gem State has a splendid way of balancing the vast myriad of open-air recreational possibilities that arise from all four seasons. So the snow has past and its warming up outside and now is a great time to start considering how you want to enjoy your summer months. You may consider planning ahead and be prepared for the hot summer days in the Boise area, as there are so many different fun and relaxing things to do to help
