Wedding Dress ~ to keep or not to keep?

Okay so last week I shared with you some of the ways I’m an organizing and cleaning rebel.  That was a lead up to this post.  I’ve wanted to write this post for awhile now but it’s a pretty touchy subject so I refrained BUT I can hold back no longer.  You see I’ve been […]

Two Organizing Quotes that Kind of Irk Me & Why

So this week I’ve been pondering a couple of quotes that I kind of have a problem with for a variety of reasons.  As I’ve been thinking about the participants of the 31 day organizational challenge (it’s not to late to join us), it came to me that there are some well intentioned organizing quotes […]

How To Make Weekly Household Purges Happen

I had someone ask me recently about the purge pile pictures that I often post (like here and here) as well as regularly on Instagram.  They wanted to know more about how I do it.  Every week I head to my local thrift store to drop items off.  On Wednesday mornings I open my linen […]

Organizing my Office ~ Before and After

Organizing my Office ~ Before and After

So last week I blogged about how I removed my photo albums from my office closet and how that was the catalyst for my entire office getting an overhaul.  Some of you were shocked that my photo albums got relocated to the garage, others were all for me just throwing them out (I have them […]
