I’ve been thinking a lot about the time in my life where everything seemed to suck. Parenting was depleting all my resources, I felt in over my head on a daily basis. My marriage was bookended with resentment on both sides, I knew we were both so lost and angry. I felt restless and […]
I wish that once you declutter your house is permanently organized and tidy. Unfortunately, there is always stuff coming back into the house and you need to declutter repeatedly. I’m not the kind of lady who has her life together enough to follow some kind of decluttering calendar to make sure I keep on it. […]
I’ve been having lots of online and offline conversations lately where I am asked HOW I STARTED DECLUTTERING.

It is 9pm. I’m curled up at the dining room table in my pajamas, hypothetically drinking tea (but probably the nice whiskey I […]
I have been practising minimalism for about three years now BUT if you came to my house you wouldn’t assume I was a minimalist. My kitchen is full of craft supplies and appliances…. and I have a jar-hoarding problem that my husband makes fun of UNTIL he needs all the jars for his screw and […]

In the Simple Saturday emails, we’ve been talking a lot about LIFE ON PURPOSE –>What it means to set a vision for your life and make it happen. To help you do this I’ve made the Year on Purpose workbook (which can be started at any time, you don’t have to do it right in […]
