I usually skip spring cleaning altogether because it seems overwhelming and I don’t know where to begin. There’s usually an excessive amount of stuff that I need to clean up or clean out before I can even start the...
Just a few months ago, I stumbled on a local “Buy Nothing” group on Facebook. I was intrigued, so I joined—and was immediately hooked! If you’ve never heard of the Buy Nothing Project, here’s the scoop: The organization uses Facebook...
Every year, I say I'm going to declutter my home. And guess what? (shocker) Every year, it doesn't happen. According to Psychology Today, clutter causes stress in part because of its excessive visual stimuli. It also signals to our brains that our work is...
One of the Instagram trends I’ve liked recently has been the #Realstagram posts—where people post makeupless selfies, not-so-pretty homemade meals, and messy living rooms with toys strewn everywhere in an effort to be transparent. But sometimes these #realstagram messy...
