    How-To Gets Your Kids Involved in the De-Cluttering Process

    Did you catch my last post?? I hope that this calendar is helping you feel productive in this uncertain time. Today we are talking about how to get your kids involved. Since most kids are home from school these days, what a better time to teach them the art of letting go! Haha! But seriously though, the sooner our kids stop giving so much value to things the better. We can all benefit from this skill wouldn’t you agree?? The Bible says “for where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” Matthew 6:21 NASB, and because of that I believe that our treasure should not be in things of this earth, things we can’t take with us when this life is over. Just a thought. πŸ™‚

    30 Days to a Clutter Free Home

    Hey there friends! Happy last day of March! I hope you are all doing well in the midst of everything that’s going on in our world right now. We are headed into a new month, full of uncertainty. How are you handling it all?? I have my good days and my bad days. I’ve heard several mental health professionals claim that the best way to cope is to focus on things we can control. So, that’s what I’m trying to do. One thing I know I can control?? The clutter in my home!!

    Updated DIY Drawer Organizers

    Hey there friends! I tell you I was a little slow getting going after Christmas! I’ve been watching everyone around me de-cluttering and organizing all the things and I’m just like “meh”. But, then I saw a picture posted in Jen Woodhouse’s instagram feed of this project and I was inspired!!
    Several years ago I built my own kitchen drawer organizers. They were fabulous and I loved them! Check out the how-to here in this post.

    Digital Photo Organizing Basics

    Oh the age of digital photography. What a wonderous thing!! I know for a fact however that I take WAAAYYYY more pictures than I ever did when I had to develop film. But, I also know that I look at said photos WAAAYYYY less that I ever did when I had to develop film. With a film camera you have to print the pictures to actually enjoy them. So you do. With digital…well, they are there, on your phone, or on your computer. And, you don’t necessarily HAVE to do anything else with them. But, are you really enjoying them just sitting there on your computer or your phone?? My guess is no. I would like to say that I’ve done a good job keeping all of our photos organized and stored securely. But, then I would be lying. I have made a couple of yearbook-like photo books and I love them. So, my goal is to get everything organized and make one for each year. Seems easy enough right?? Ha! We shall see!

    Summer Styled Bookshelves

    Hey there! How are ya?? I have to be honest, styling bookshelves used to intimidate me. Like for real. I was awful at it. But, over the years, I’ve learned a thing or two from people who seemed to be naturals at it, and now I think I’m not too bad. HA!! I also have to admit that I hadn’t touched our bookshelves in our family room for several years. Aside from adding in and taking out a few seasonal items here and there, they stayed basically the same. Here are some before pics that I had to hunt for, because I have become a terrible blogger in that I keep forgetting to take before pics!! (not great quality because they are phone pics and not meant to be before pics haha)
