Do you dream about an organized and calm school year? By now, if you have children, everything you see or talk about is getting the kids ready to go back to school. In fact, I know many parents are counting down the days for this to happen. You may have gotten most of the supplies for the kids already, but my focus today is whether you have gotten yourself in order to back to school, or not?
Zero waste living sounds so complicated and impossible, doesn’t it? However, there are simple steps that will lead us in the right direction. Today, I want to share with you some of my favorites sustainable products from IKEA.
A home recycling station is a system that should work for most families that are interested in helping the planet to be a better place for us all. The set up is easy if you have the right containers that will fit your space.
Earth Day is coming up and to celebrate this important date we created a series with tips on how to stay eco-friendly while decluttering your home. We will also talk about “how to create a home recycling station” and “sustainable shopping habits” in the next couple of weeks.
One of the best ways to achieve your goals, whatever they might be: launching a business, finding balance in life, starting a diet, being a better parent, or getting your home organized is through finding a person to hold you accountable. I can’t talk enough about the benefits of having someone checking on you, on your plans and goals and making sure you will work hard to achieve them.
A very popular post on the blog last year was a clutter-free gift guide, and that is why we decided to bring it to you again. The 2018 holiday gift guide edition brings you some new and old experiences and services in the area.
I love putting this guide together because, during the year, I see so many people struggling with clutter or even just finding space to store new things could be a battle.
I have learned so much this past month about how to recycle right and also be a more conscious customer, thanks to #plasticfreejuly. During this period, our local newspaper published an article about how the recycling process is in our city. Now I realize that I was just putting in the recycling bin all the things I wished could be recycled. I was “wishcycling”!
I still remember all the things I did to get ready for my first baby, over 4 years ago now. Today I realize that, sometimes, new parents overthink things. I was no exception! I remember reading every single line of the book “what to expect when you’re expecting”. My husband and I would check what size our baby was by the end of each week, what food was okay to eat, etc.
I love a DIY project and this one, using chalk paint, is very simple! A couple years ago I got a desk to use as our drop off zone by the front door. This beauty came from the second chance store, and we paid just $20 for it. My goal has always been to paint it, but you know how life is, so many things come up, so many other projects need our attention. It wasn’t just until now that I finally got it done!
