Brace yourself! Today I’m going to share some powerful productivity apps that I’ve recently discovered that are helping me to make the most of my limited work time this summer. Summer. To say that I’m less productive during the summer months would be the understatement of the century. As a work-from-home entrepreneur, the struggle to stay productive is REAL right now. The kiddos are home full-time through mid August. Even though they’re both almost teenagers, the majority of my day is devoted to meeting their needs (for transportation, entertainment, meals, etc.). Of course, this translates into significantly less time that… Read More
When decluttering, my first piece of advice is to always go for the low-hanging fruit. Well, it doesn’t get any more “low-hanging” than trash. As you begin to declutter your garage, you’ll inevitably come across items that belong in the trash can, but just didn’t quite make it there for some reason (like these random Amazon boxes that seem to always be littering up our garage). Now’s the time to walk those items over to the trash can. There. doesn’t that feel good?

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Minted. All opinions are 100% mine. I seem to have a penchant for unfinished projects. Such is the case with our great room makeover. The last time I wrote about the progress we’ve made in this space, we were about 90% finished with the room redesign. I shared a punch list of mini-projects that we still needed to complete, including a do-over of this sad-looking gallery wall: This post contains affiliate links for your convenience.

(starting out in the laundry room closet) We started out the season with five pairs of matching gloves. We ended the season with one intact pair and four “orphans”. So Sad. Before tossing your orphans, do a quick sweep of winter coat pockets to see if you might be able to reunite a few pairs.
Happy First Day of Spring! I know that I’m not the only one whose chomping at the bit to enjoy longer days, warmer weather, and the yearly ritual of exchanging snow boots for rain boots. By the time the first day of spring arrives each year, I’m also chomping at the bit to introduce some “touches of spring” throughout our home in the form of pretty spring home decor. When it’s time to change out my home decor for the upcoming season, I seem to always start with wreaths. I heart wreaths because of their simple elegance, and their ability… Read More
