Getting Started

Hello blogosphere! I’m so happy you’ve stopped by to visit this little corner of the world wide web!

Okay, for starters, I’m gonna be 100% honest that I’m NOT a professional organizer. I’m also no expert. I’m just your average Joe, completely ordinary, first time mom who has a knack for tidying up spaces.

I don’t know about you, but I think and feel better when my house is neat and tidy. I believe that our environment often mirrors and affects how we feel, and a house of clutter and chaos breeds confusion and frustration. No thanks!

My goal is to help you get out of that clutter cycle that’s keeping you stressed and a mess! And it’s gonna be fun! Because I’m a weirdo and I think throwing things away and organizing is a party.

While I think it’s a total party, organizing and decluttering may not come naturally for you. First, please let me reassure you that I will never judge. I grew up in a house with 8 people, that’s 6 of us kids constantly running around making messes. So I know how chaotic it can be and how overwhelming. 

At our house, we don’t have a lot of clutter or mess going on most of the time. The majority of the time, our messes or clutter can be cleared and put away in 5 minutes. How, you say? Well, I could pat myself on the back and boast that I’m a hard worker and an organizing genius. But it just isn’t true.

Can I share a secret with you?

Mmm K, here it is darlings…

Keeping a tidy home can be EASY.

The awesome thing about tidying and organizing your home is that there are a MILLION ways to do it. There are so many blogs, Pinterest boards, and websites all focused on giving you ideas of how to get your home organized.

In my opinion, a lot of these solutions are overcomplicated and too much work.

If you’re like me, you’re lazy you don’t want to expend all your energy and resources solving the chaotic puzzle of your pantry.

There are many ideas out there to help us clean and organize our homes. But it doesn’t have to be a big headache or a project that takes up all your time, energy, and money. I’ll help you do it in ways that are simple, budget-friendly, and effective. All it takes is some creativity, some good decluttering and purging, and maybe a bit of a mind shift. And chocolate. Chocolate is always a good idea.

Just remember, you can do this!
