One Room Challenge Office Makeover {Week Three}

Manor Court Crystal 4-arm Chandelier

I’m a bit late getting my office makeover post up this week for the One Room Challenge, but preparing to host Canadian Thanksgiving last weekend seemed to take precedence. As mentioned on week one, my goal wasn’t to totally transform my office, but to tackle those smaller projects that seemed to be taunting me on […]

Finding it Hard to Let Go of Clutter?

Clutter-free garage with clever storage

Over the weekend I was visiting my husband’s aunt and noticed she had a large stack of boxes and bags in her mudroom filled with items she wanted to donate. For the past few weeks she’s been going through each room with a fine tooth comb, culling the stuff she felt she no longer had a […]

New Kitchen Storage and Mabel’s Labels Giveaway!

Food Storage Labels by Mabel's Labels

Since mid-January, I’ve been going through closets, cabinets, drawers, and our pantry to weed out anything we don’t use, give everything a thorough cleaning, and re-organize as necessary.

It’s that time of year again when the kiddos are heading back to school. My son is in grade 12, so he’s pretty self-sufficient. Over the years, I’ve stepped back more and more, allowing him to share a bigger portion of the day-to-day responsibilities that come along with getting to and from school and everything […]

Playing Catch Up

Running Task Sheet

This week I spent hours getting organized and playing catch up. With back to school around the corner, I was feeling the need to shift into high gear. Between our basement renovation and summer holidays, paperwork, recycling, mending, gardening, and other to-do projects have really piled up. I dedicated this week to tackling most of […]

Rearranging for Simplicity {Everyday Made Easy}

Tea Station

I was reading Julie Morgenstern’s book Organizing From the Inside Out and I came to the realization that, although my home is quite organized, there were many changes I needed to make. I’ve always had the idea that ‘like’ needed to be grouped with ‘like’. Julie challenges this notion with her smart, but obvious suggestion […]

17 Ways to Organize Your Life

How is your day going? I’m knee deep in boxes and covered in drywall dust, primer and paint. I’m working on getting my office put back together after a week of interruptions. It turns out that I needed to add a little more support to the existing shelving in the closet and my simple paint […]

Organizing With Living Savvy + Project Crunch Time


I have a lot of pep in my step. Today we’re supposed to hit the double digits (in the 50’s for my southern readers) and that’s a big deal. I equate warm temperatures with snow melting, bulbs finally having a chance to start their growing process, lightening and brightening my decorating, and being one step […]
