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.

The “Konmari” Method: What Didn’t Work For Me

Hello again! I hope your 4th was as much fun as ours. We had burgers at my in-laws and a less traditional 4th of July dinner at home with steak and chimichurri sauce tacos. Yum!
