Living With Less // Decluttering

Here we are again! Another Wednesday!

Confession: I don’t like clutter very much, but I’m not a very motivated declutterer! This poses a big dilemma. So one of my Living With Less quests this year is to really dive in and declutter my spaces. 

To me, “clutter” is all the stuff that accumulates around you. Stuff that doesn’t have a proper home, or just never got put back where it belongs (or junk mail, ha!). Clutter isn’t necessarily what resides in the recesses of your closets. Because it’s not right in front of you, “cluttering” your vision and your mind. So that makes decluttering the act of putting the stuff away, throwing out the garbage, shredding/recycling the junk mail!

Monday Musings // 6.15.2020

Hello friends, it’s Monday again!

Work was busy last week. And as I’ve said before, I am grateful for that. Though my appreciation is more apparent after the week is over, once I’m at a safe distance from it thanks to the buffer of the weekend. Not so much in the midst of stress-induced heart palpitations though…and now it’s time for it to all start again (well, hopefully not the palpitations again)!

Using Mini Habits

Hello Friends, Hump Day is here yet again…how are you?

I’m hanging in there. Hope you are too.

I’ll be honest, I didn’t have anything planned in my editorial calendar for this week’s post. In fact, I had this topic scheduled for a post in late July. But I’ve decided to introduce it now and then check in later (#accountability).

Bathroom Reno // The Inspiration + Phase 1 Plans

Happy Wednesday!

Last week I announced my first ever 100 Day Challenge (HERE), and that Phase 1 of my long desired bathroom renovation would be part of it! Hooray!!! I’d love to be able to do a full blown overhaul right now, but the truth is I can’t afford it at this moment. So while I save my monies for the bigger items on my list, I’ll tackle Phase 1, which includes all of the tasks I can do (and feel fairly comfortable doing) without getting a contractor or any tradesmen involved. While I officially started the 100 Day Challenge on Monday, I haven’t actually begun the bathroom reno quite yet. I think it will have to be more of a weekend warrior project. But I promised to share my plans today, so here I am!

Monday Musings // 6.1.2020

Happy June 1st!

And Happy 100 Day Challenge Day (that’s a thing, and it’s today)!

Last week was not only a 4-day work week because of the Memorial Day holiday on Monday, but it was also my first week back to doing an alternating office/WFH/office/WFH schedule at work. It seemed like the longest short week ever! I am grateful though that this was my biggest concern.

A 100 Day Challenge

Hello, hello!

Today I am excited (and a little nervous #accountability) to announce my first ever 100 Day Challenge! I don’t think I’ve mentioned the concept of a 100 Day Challenge here on the blog before (or anywhere actually). I heard about it on A Beautiful Mess, first on their blog (HERE) and then on their podcast. The idea is to pick a few goals to really focus on for 100 days. They can be big projects to accomplish, or small habits to hone, or anything in between really.

Living With Less // Can I Konmari?

How goes it, my lovelies?

Today I bring you another Living With Less post. In my last post, I asked “Is Less Really More?” (HERE) and today I’m asking (myself mostly), “Can I Konmari?”

If you’re here today, then I imagine that you’ve heard of Marie Kondo and her Konmari Method, or her book The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up. I haven’t read her book, but I watched the first season of her Netflix series. I was intrigued and on the verge of attempting her method last January. But I feel like I may not be able to keep to the rules…
