Toy Clean Up.. or Not! | The Day We Didn’t Clean Up ANY Toys

The more toys you have, the more toys there are the clean up. And for some reason, kids never find toy clean up as fun as toy playing.

Living in a one-bedroom apartment, we try to keep clutter (including toys!) to a minimum. I’ve tried all kinds of storage systems and toy clean up rules, like “no more than two toys out at a time.”

But inevitably, a few hours into the day, I’d be tripping over toy cars and puzzle pieces. And can you blame them? Toys are fun and cleaning just……

When a Mom is "Alone" with her Thoughts -- Video

Once upon a time, a mom was alone with her thoughts... We all know that's a fairy tale.

There's a running monologue in my head 24/7, that is often both nonsensical and disorganized. If I were an internet browser, I'd have too many tabs open at once and quite a few webpages would be crashing.

No matter how many lists, apps, and calendars I have,  it's hard to keep track. Life stuff. Work stuff. Kid stuff. Love stuff. Health stuff. Home stuff. And how to prioritize which…

The Home Maintenance Idea I Got from a Car Dealership

A long time ago (about 10 years or so), before I was a wife and mommy, I worked as the Executive Assistant at a northeast Ohio, family-owned Chrysler dealership. I worked closely with the owner and his family, doing everything from tracking salemen’s stats to typing his…

Organizing’s a B*tch… Until It’s Done

Organizing is hard. And not just because it takes physical & mental energy, determination, and stamina. It’s also hard because there are so many layers. You can’t just go into a room and tackle it right then and there. You have to clean, discard, sort, relocate, and improve. As much as I wish I could tackle room after room in one epic sweep, it’s just not possible.

One of the January goals I set as part of my month of being an…

Organize Something Today!

I am a stay at home Mom to three amazing little ones and I now have a successful blog and YouTube channel!

I started organizing my home, just 15 minutes a day, and the results were magical!  Now, just a few years later my home and life are in order and I turned my passion for organizing into a…

Home Sweet (Organized) Home

Last year when we decided I would leave work and stay home to care for my mom and kids, one thing became immediately apparent…

Order was needed.

Some kind of system to find stuff and put stuff where stuff belonged after stuff was being looked for and stuff was not found. Another thing also became achingly apparent… we had a lot of… shi.. I mean, stuff!

There were homework supplies on the kitchen table. Fast food (yeah, yeah, we go there!) toys in the…

hide the toys and maintain your sanity!

if you have small children your house also probably looks like a declared disaster area by the end of the day! i am amazed daily at how many toys a 2 yr old can scatter and uproot in the course of 24 hrs. and where do you store them all? i really don't want my house to be a constant tripping hazard and feel more like a toys r us than a house that adults actually occupy.…

Prescription for Happy

While being happy is objective and different things will work for everyone, I wanted to take a few moments to give you some ideas of things to do (or not do!) to live a little bit happier life.

1.  Be honest.  If you want something, say something.  Don’t expect others to know what you desire or need.  Be firm, but honest.  People love to help others.  Ask for what you want.

2.  Do nothing.  Take some time every day to do nothing.  If you are constantly thinking about other…

How to Be Summer Ready

As summer finally begins to make itself known around here (I know, everyone else is experiencing record highs, right?), last week I found myself feeling outsmarted again by our stuff.



"OK, everyone outside."

"Wait, where's your hat?"

"Do you have sunblock on yet?"

"I don't know. Where IS the sunblock?"

"Who used the sunblock last?!"



I've said it a million times. But here it goes again. My job description oftentimes feels like it must read: 50% SAHM duties /…

So Many Books...So Many Colors

A task for the kid-less weekend…



Yep. What do I do when the girls are at their grandparents and my wonderful spouse is at work?Organize our book shelf by color! Yes, I’m weird. (And just in case you think I’m nuts too, I also took walks and had lots of time to write.)



I’d seen this long ago on some blog and thought, “Now that would really improve our bookshelf.” I’m always searching for ways to simplify things in our home since clutter and mess really…

Tweens and Organization

Samantha G. who is a member on this site asked me to post some tips about helping tween to get organized. This topic is a familiar one because I have an 11-year-old with lots of stuff. Last fall, I went through her room and completely reorganized and contained her stuff, which was quite a project, but to her credit went rather smoothly. Although my daughter is a visual type who accumulates a lot of clutter, we provided her with a place for everything...and, with a little push, she puts… Continue

There is hope for organizing a disorganized child

Just the other day at an intake with a new client, a desparate mom asked, “Is there any hope in getting Will organized?”. “Yes, of course Will can get organized. It may take him longer than some of his peers but it can happen,” I said. Apparantly Will’s mom didn’t like my answer since she commented to me,”Well that was a very passive answer!”. General maybe but passive, no.



Parents who seek my help are usually at the end of their rope in helping their child become organized. As I did… Continue

25 Ways to Keep Kid’s Rooms Clean and Organized

1. Place hooks, shelves and other put things away spaces at eye level so your kids can easily reach them

2. Clean with your child a few times. This allows your child to learn from you what you expect “clean” to look like.

3. Make a chore chart with rewards that are meaningful to your child. And remember that stickers may be meaningful for younger kids but won’t cut the mustard with older kids. Be flexible as kids grow.

4. Limit the number of stuffed animals your child is allowed… Continue

Kids room design with feng shui

Feng shui, meaning wind and water is the ancient Chinese philosophy, which is used for designing a home for the success of its occupants. It has evolved in northern China since as early as 4000 BC. At the core of feng shui is the quest for balance between yin and yang, where all things are either one or the other. For example, being relaxed is yin, but being alert is yang. This concept is applied to home furnishings, where fabrics are the most yin, but glass is the most yang, and wood falls in… Continue
