Tidy Tuesday- When in Doubt, Roll it Out

We live in a small space, so we don't have room for dressers. If we did, I would utilize Marie Kondo's super cute and effective folding technique.

How to Declutter Your Schedule

Decluttering isn't limited to the items you may find in your house. Sometimes it's our hectic schedules that need to be reevaluated and pared down. It's no fun "running around like a chicken with its legs cut off". That's my sweet friend Christie's version of the saying.
