RedPlum, a leading provider of deals and savings on brands consumers want most, announced today that Diva Toolbox Radio: Viva la Value, featuring Lisa Reynolds, RedPlum’s Mom Saver-in-chief, will host its next show on Thursday, April 1 at 3 p.m. ET on Diva Toolbox Radio, an online radio show. During this month’s show, Reynolds will be joined by Jamie Novak, bestselling author known as the “World’s Most Relatable Organizer,” who will discuss practical and inexpensive ways to organize and clean your home this spring – and keep it that way. Reynolds will also be joined by Supermarket Guru® Phil Lempert, a nationally recognized consumer analyst, for his top five food reviews of the month, and Kate Arcieri, a lifestyle expert, and Editorial Director at redplum.com.
Novak has served as an expert organizer for NBC’s iVillage and has appeared on QVC as well as HGTV's Mission: Organization. She’s represented such industry leaders as Brother P-Touch and Febreze for Procter and Gamble, and her tips have been featured in countless national magazines including Everyday with Rachel Ray, Real Simple and Women’s Day. She's the author of multiple bestselling titles including the newly released Stop Throwing Money Away: turn clutter to cash, trash to treasure and save the planet while you're at it. Novak travels nationally presenting humorous programs on how to simplify your life and save money.
A few tips Novak offers:
- Designate a single drawer in the kitchen to be a “lost and found” area. When someone leaves an item of clutter, like a toy, on your kitchen counter, simply slide it into the lost and found drawer. No more taking the time to put it away, no more tracking down the owner and no more resentment over a no longer clear counter. When the owner comes looking for the item he or she knows exactly where look.
- Find “parking spaces” in your refrigerator. When common items have a home, you can find what you need when you need it, plus you'll know when you're running low. Put all leftovers on one shelf; all the marinades and sauces together; and put sandwich making items in a shallow tray so you can pull them all out together.
- Create an “in-and-out station” by the door you use the most for everyday items like house keys, cell phones and sunglasses. You can use a drawer, a basket or a few hooks on the wall.
Viva la Value helps listeners achieve a value lifestyle that’s easy and enjoyable through practical savings tips, coupons and coupon codes. Segments air the first Thursday of each month at 3 p.m. ET.
