This morning my kitchen counter has pots/pan left drying on towels from last night and the sink is going to soon have dirty breakfast dishes in it. I’d love to have this all tidy before I leave…but it’s not going to happen because I’d rather be a few minutes early for my first appointment so my week starts off smoothly.  So what I choose to see this morning are the remnants of the cozy Sunday night dinner shared with my hubby and the breakfast I made time to eat today.-Feb 2017

Management Systems For The Unmanageable

Thanks to social media, HGTV and blogs exactly like the one you are reading right now (!), we all think we should declutter.  Yes, clean up, clean out and enjoy the stress free life right?  Maybe those extremely stressful, marathon clean out sessions didn’t take at your house either.  Perhaps the reason is because so many of the how to books are written by organized people who frankly, must make organizing their hobby.  The book above is written by a gal who has the same philosophy as we do when designing a home.  Everyone has a system of how they operate.  Tweaking that system is the best way to manage clutter and get a little closer to finding that unicorn of the stress free life.
