Party Like a Minimalist

I love hosting parties, large and small, and have never bought into the idea that hosting has to be complicated or overwhelming. I love applying minimalist principles to party planning (clarify what’s important, ditch the rest) and I’m sharing my top tips below so you can take the stress out of your next event. Food […]

The Surprising Power of Lowering the Bar

None of us are capable of doing All Of The Things all at once. With lives that are filled with obligations and opportunities, It’s up to us to determine where we want to invest our limited time, energy, and resources. Lowering the bar on purpose (as opposed to dropping the ball by accident) can feel […]

Game Changing Ways to Automate Your Entire Life

The average person makes 35,000 decisions a day. Oy! With all of the stimulation of modern life (news, social media, the buzz of email and text notifications) coupled with daily work and family responsibilities, it’s a wonder we get anything done at all. One surefire way to feel less overwhelmed is to find ways to […]

Fewer Better: Summer Favorites

And just like that, it’s suddenly summer! To be honest, summer has never been my favorite season, (I’m more of a spring/autumn person) but this one is gearing up to be a good one. The girls are off to sleep-away camp, we’re planning our first family trip to Rome, and I’m working on wrapping up […]

How to Organize Your Important Documents

As tax season approaches (gulp) I thought I would share some of my tips for organizing your most important papers and documents. If you’ve ever misplaced your passport right before an international trip (my hand is up!), or spent hours unearthing every room of your home trying to track down for your vehicle registration, this […]

Meal Planning for People Who Hate Meal Planning

Once a day at roughly five o clock I text my husband, “what are we doing for dinner?” and he texts back “I don’t know – what do you feel like?” and then I throw my head in my hands because we have failed again. I’m not being hyperbolic when I tell you that we’ve […]

Closet Makeover Reveal with California Closets

Today’s the day! This project has been a long time coming, and I am so excited to share it with you. A little context before we dive in: Our home is over one hundred years old, 1200 square feet, and has two closets for the four of us. Jordan and I share one closet, and […]

How to Deal With Sentimental Clutter

Of all the categories of stuff I’ve helped people edit and organize over the past decade, sentimental items have to be the hardest. I’ve written about what to keep when someone dies, but navigating through your own letters, heirlooms, and mementos can be just as (if not more) difficult. I’m rounding up my best tips […]

The Art of Saying “No”

I used to pride myself on being a “yes” person. I said an enthusiastic “YES!” to every opportunity I was presented with. “Yes” to more clients, “Yes” to more collaborations, “Yes” to more parties. There’s really only one big problem with being a yes person: When you say “yes” to everything, you are also unintentionally […]

Clutter-Free Holiday Gift Guide

As you can imagine, I’m pretty selective when it comes to gifting. The last thing I want to do is clutter up my loved ones’ homes with more stuff they don’t want or need. I’m also trying to support female-owned, BIPOC-owned, smaller, independent businesses instead of big box stores. See below for my round-up of […]
