Organizing Changes More Than Your Space

I recently came across this great story in Mina Parker‘s book “Less is More: Meditations on Simplicity, Balance, and Real Abundance.” I thought it was a wonderful expression of how organizing your home can change far more than just your space. Bye Bye, Extra Stuff I recently heard a friend talking about how she had […]

Don’t just have goals. Create a Lifestyle.

If you would have told me over a year ago that my life would include daily beach walks, writing in cafes, and only about 3-5 appointments per week, I would have said “That’s a dream.” But I’m living the dream. Did it take a ton of hard work? Yes. Did it happen overnight? No. But, […]

You Don’t Need to Be a Pirate to Have a Treasure Chest

When my clients come across something special that they want to keep but not necessarily display or interact with, I suggest we start a Memorabilia Box.  Like a treasure chest, it’s a safe place to keep precious items rather than tucking them in random places around the house where they can get lost.
