In every place I've lived, the kitchen has been my favorite room to organize. More so than other spaces, when setting up a kitchen it is important to think about the "flow." No, I'm not talking about energy flow or feng shui, but rather, the ease with which you can move about in the space and access the tools you need while cooking. In a closet, th...

When we think about decorating an entryway, we usually think about what we want guests to see when they enter our home. Instead, remember that the entryway is the last thing you see everyday before you leave home, and the first thing you see when you return. With that in mind, its important to set up the space so that it is both visually appealing...

I recently took a hiatus from blogging while I moved into a new apartment, but now I'm back with tons of new pictures and ideas to share!

I'm still working on some of the more detailed posts, but I thought I'd start with a quick organization hack for storing and traveling with headphones

  Step 1:

I didn't really use clipboard before I became a teacher, but now I use them like giant paper clips! I use different boards for different days of the week to keep all the papers I need for that day in one place.

​I don't always have the time to prepare an elaborate home cooked meal...actually, I rarely ever have the time to cook at home during the week. So when you look at this recipe binder, please don't think that I am actually cooking gourmet meals for myself in the evening after teaching, tutoring, working out, and doing grad school homework. Most days...

 This week's #WashiWednesday post is a pretty simple one. It doesn't take a lot of effort, but it really spices up a boring old notebook. 

Many of my tapes have translucent elements (like clear stripes or clear polka dots) so I chose to use a plain white notebook. 

For this project, I decided to do a blue theme on the front and green theme on th...

There was once a time when my mother would ask me to get the mail, and I would bounce excitedly up to the mailbox and rummage through the papers, hoping that there would be something in there with my name on it. Getting mail was the coolest, most adult thing I could think of at the time, and I longed for the day when I would be important enough to...

I have to start off by giving credit for this post to my amazingly organized mother! Amongst our friends and family, my mother is notorious for never missing a birthday or anniversary. While some of that is definitely the product of her stellar organizational skills, she also seems to have a special section of her brain specifically reserved for im...

In case you were wondering...#washiwednesday is actually a real thing, and in honor of this alliterative hashtag, every Wednesday I will share a short post about different ways to use washi tape for organization and crafting. 

Today's project: a do-it-yourself jewelry case to keep jewelry safe and organized while traveling!

Start with a 7-D...

As many twenty-somethings will probably agree, one of the scariest parts of #adulting is managing finances. In fact, it makes me feel all fancy and grown up to just type the words “managing finances.”

Paying bills, tracking bank statements, planning a budget, and figuring out how to put money in a savings account while still being able to afford gro...
