Most people say they own too much stuff. We all know we are guilty of excess in some area of our lives. However, WHY do we own the things we fill our homes, offices and cars with? There are many theories, but here are a few:
First, our stuff allows us to do things. This is true for all the items we need in our lives to do things like cook, learn, groom and care for our children. These things also help us control our environment. For example, we WANT things like air conditioners…Continue

I have a lot of busy moms in my line of work. A lot of them have their own “trade secrets” and I wanted to tap into that knowledge base and share their best tips with you. Here is what I came up with. Many of these are direct quotes from moms like you. If they can do it, so can you! Pick one tip and start there.

I recently had a discussion with some of my family about the boundaries I set for myself in terms of what I keep. I have one bookshelf in my living area and it is divided up into sections; organizing books, business books, social media books, travel books, hiking guides, and of course, fiction books to keep and some are in a “to read” section.
I’ve been reading a lot and while I borrow a lot of books from the library, it means that my book shelf recently runneth over. Instead of…Continue

One of the joys of, well, all of my pregnancies is that I organize and re-organize everything. Tell me you’re the same way, yes? During my last ‘nesting session’, I hit the toy room, purged lots of toys and re-organized everything. My head was spinning with options as to what to do with all of their toys and…Continue

Each day that I walk home from Aliya's bus stop I chat with one of my neighbors who also has a child that rides the bus with her. We basically share our thoughts on general things like life, kids and whatever we can think of for our five minute catch up as we walk home.
I work from home and I didn't have the previous day scheduled to work so me being my Martha Stewart self (I like to think so) kept myself busy. I told her how I organized Ayanna's entire closet before she came home…Continue
