Hello! It’s good to be back. How are you? I recently cleared off a back counter in my kitchen that I’d tried to ignore for a few months (maybe longer). Here’s a before photo of the counter then the results. What helped was bringing a shelving unit in from another room and using it for… Continue reading Hello It’s good to be back How are…
This blog post at Raptitude has had me thinking for awhile. It would be lovely to have everything at home in its place. Nice goal, wouldn’t you say?
Hello and Happy New Year (almost!) I’m recommitting to decluttering slowly this year – 15 minutes at a time (per the practical advice of flylady.net). First up is the dining area off the kitchen which is a catch-all for papers, work and errand bags, mail, and a box of recycling. It’s an area full of… Continue reading a hot spot + an office
Hello! I have missed you! This week I have been focusing on flylady’s Before Bed Routine (BBR) as she calls it – and what I call plain ol’ getting ready for tomorrow while it’s still tonight. That way I can stumble out of bed half-awake and yet be dressed in clothes that look great and… Continue reading Before Bed Routine
Hello! Jumping back in here as I’m in the middle of rearranging, organizing and cleaning a bedroom, walk in closet and a den off the living room area. The den is a nook of a room that I’m contemplating making my sleeping area because it has high ceilings, a slant to one wall, and it’s… Continue reading simple nook of a bedroom
Welcome to the reorganization of my pantry/kitchen closet. The closet went from somewhere I wanted to close my eyes when the door opened to now making me smile each time I catch a glimpse inside of it! And yes, that is an empty shelf in the “after” photo. How about you? Any organizing/decluttering projects in the works?
so my mind has been clogged up with Shoulds, Musts and Ought-To’s…and left my thinking muddled. It’s why I haven’t been here in awhile. (I may be talking to an empty room here…. is my voice echoing?) I just read Leo Zabuta’s post on his mnmlist blog and since his words are meant to be… Continue reading paring ideas: simply wonderful
My office at work has been piled up with papers on every surface – which is driving me crazy. So when an office supply order arrived this morning, I jumped at the chance to tidy up the shelf that I’d revamped two years ago and had barely touched since. Things at home have piled up… Continue reading office supplies + cozy (but spare) rooms
People matter more than things. I’m simplifying spaces at home to have more time with friends such as a recent spontaneous afternoon with friends Anna and Jocelyn (pictured above before we all put our cell phones away!). We took a Saturday afternoon to get lunch and go shopping. I love that having a minimal home… Continue reading People matter more than things I’m simplifying spaces…
Friends, meet the four “hot spots” (as FlyLady likes to call them) that live in my apartment. Starting with the top left photo and moving clockwise: Top o’ the Stairs: The cart + bin are for Goodwill, the blue IKEA bag is a collection of items from my car’s trunk, and behind those is a… Continue reading sizzling hot spots
