(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

Today, I’m deviating a bit from our usual organizing/decorating posts in order to chat about blogging life. The topic of blogging (and more specifically blogger education) is top of mind for me this week as I officially begin my Elite Blogging Academy Coursework. It’s both exciting and a bit overwhelming!

After clearing out the obvious trash, the first order of business I like to tackle in any home office decluttering project is the paper (you CAN’T be surprised to hear this, from ME, right?). Gather up all of the random pieces of paper strewn around the office and toss into a laundry basket to deal with AFTER you declutter and organize the rest of the office.
