Create a gift closet on a budget!

Create a gift closet on a budget!

A few weeks ago, I was shopping at Shoppers Drug Mart when I saw a mountain of Valentine's Day stuffed animals and gifts all marked down to $1.00!  My first instinct was, JACKPOT! But then I asked myself, "where would I store these until next year"? I always have the...

Create an IN/OUT System and say “Goodbye” to Clutter!

Create an IN/OUT System and say “Goodbye” to Clutter!

Recently I was at a clients home when I had a REALIZATION! Almost every home I visit has the same clutter problem. Even the most organized homes still suffer from "homeless clutter" that needs to be taken out of our home or stuff that we need to find a home for. With...

Is Your Clutter Homeless?

Is Your Clutter Homeless?

Take a look around your home. Do you have those areas that just seem to attract piles of "stuff"?  Tables, counter tops and just about every other flat surface can easily become a landing spot for all those things we plan on dealing with later. When you really take a...

Spring Clean your Closet

I haven't posted in awhile...a long while.  I'm still fighting my lazy lump phase.  I miss my crazy, rabid spider monkey energy, but at this point, I have to face the fact that it may be gone forever (*sniff*). I think I still have the ADD part, just minus the "H"...

Organizing with Bins in the Bedroom

A few years ago I made a New Years resolution to "get organized". I'll be honest, my home was a mess. My closets and drawers were bursting, I was constantly misplacing things and I couldn't get anywhere on time to save my life.  I soon discovered the secret to an...

Organize Your Recycling

Organize Your Recycling

My life with a one month old has been...well, busy to say the least.  My little Milo is very high maintenance so just finding time to sleep and shower is a challenge.  Fortunately, I have another guest post! Enjoy this post by Justin Greig.  A self-proclaimed "21st...

The Burden of Guilty Clutter

Over this past week I have had multiple people reach out to me, all with the same issue.  They want to get their home clean and organized, but it is just too overwhelming.  They all say the same thing: "I need more storage" or " I need a bigger house".   The truth is...
