Clutter is a fact of life. Items are bought, used and often forgotten about. This creates the clutter that fills up homes and makes life stressful. My house has its fair share of clutter. Getting rid of clutter can seem like a daunting task. This is why I made specific decluttering goals this year. The best way to tackle a house declutter is to break it down into sections. Since the entryway is the first place you see when coming home, it is the perfect place to start. Today we will be tacking decluttering your home’s entryway. The starting point For the most part, entryways areRead More →

Emergencies can happen at any time, to anyone. Being prepared does not mean you have to become a prepper. Having a basic kit on hand will lessen your stress during emergencies. What a kit contains can vary based on where you live and what natural disasters your area is prone to. Whether you buy an emergency bag or build your own, having this in your home can make a difference when an emergency happens. Building a home emergency kit is a good investment.

One of my big goals this year is to declutter my house. I did an initial decluttering back in 2017. However, I was not very thorough with it. So this year, I am working towards doing a better job of it. I know that it will take quite some time to get it all done. It will be well worth the time and effort. While our house hasn’t fallen to the rank of a hoarder nightmare, it has been a bit of a disaster for some time. We have lived here for almost twelve years, and that means twelve years of stuff has accumulated. ItRead More →

Are you in need of some Mother’s Day gift ideas that are a little bit different? Mother’s Day is quickly approaching. Finding that perfect gift for mom can be a bit of a challenge. Often times, you will see advertisements for various gift ideas as Mother’s Day comes closer. However, I personally know that these gifts don’t always work for all moms. As a mom who doesn’t wear makeup, perfume or jewelry, that takes away a number of gift ideas. Add in the fact that I don’t particularly like flowers either and that removes even more options. So, I figured I would make a listRead More →

This year I am making changes and embracing life. Or at least trying to. For years I have struggled to focus and get my life together. I may be able to stick to a routine for a week, but then after that everything falls apart. A lot of my failure revolved around my anxiety and depression. It’s hard to keep things going when your brain tells you everything is going wrong – even if it isn’t. One thing that I have found that helps, is to write things down. Having a list to remind me what needs to get done is great. I don’t alwaysRead More →

Everything has a starting point, but taking the first steps can be difficult. From personal experience, I know that starting a new project can seem impossible. Despite the desire to do it, the ‘what if’s’ start to creep into my mind. What if I fail? What if I break this? What if I succeed, but then regret it? What if no one likes it in the end? Self-doubt often stops me before I can even get started. I am tired of failing. More so, I’m tired of not starting anything. Hell, it took me several months before I was brave enough to finally post this.Read More →
