Earlier this week, I received a call from a reporter who was in search of tips for organizing college dorm rooms. Since this topic is likely top of mind for many of you, I thought it might be beneficial to address the topic of organized dorm room living this week (which follows up nicely with the previous post on back to school organization tips.

Since it’s beginning to be that time of year, today, let’s talk back to school organization, shall we? I have to admit that I’m in denial that I now have a rising 8th grader and 6th grader who will begin a new school year in just a few short weeks (how did this happen?). Anyhoo…I’m guessing that many of you are in the same boat and would like to do as much as possible to set your kids up for success this fall (and to maintain your sanity as you shift into “back-to-school” mode). So I’m sharing 10 back to… Read More
Follow my blog with Bloglovin We’re deep into the summer season, and I bet that many of you are gearing up for a trip to some amazing destination. Woot woot!

Last month, Kim from Today’s Creative Life blog invited me to participate as a guest blogger in her Celebrate Summer Series. I had so much fun creating some super cute printables for her audience. I decided to create a set of summer-themed printable monthly planners for her blog series, since the focus of the summer here has been all about boosting productivity.

With my kids home full-time and the gorgeous weather… Read More
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?
