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 […]

Transforming a Room with Wallpaper

If you’ve been here a while you know that we’re constantly transforming our home so it can support our changing needs. Our youngest daughter, 9-year old Emilie, inherited my old office which used to be our guest room, and we decided it was time to give her space a little refresh. With no sign of […]

How to Holiday in Hard Times

As the winter holidays quickly approach, I’ve caught myself confronting Big Feelings – dread, paralysis, grief, and anxiety to name a few.
