Quick Tip Tuesday: Re-evaluate

Image
In every area of life, it is good to evaluate your current habits and systems every so often and see if there is a better way you could be accomplishing things. What once worked might not be the best situation for you any more! Things change and circumstances change...and sometimes the great ideas and plans that we had need to change to something better as well.

This holds true in the organizing department.



Really, this is one of the fun parts of organizing. When something isn't working so well, you get to organize all over again! I love the challenge of separating things and finding a place for everything. It is one of the reasons I have never worked or studied well in my room...I look up and see more things I could organize! :)

But sometimes it needs to be done, so I challenge you: what is an area that needs to be re-evaluated? What about that area isn't working for you, and how could it be better? Take it apart, and try putting it back together a few different ways until yo…

Introducing Cooking and Saving for One

Image
A few weeks ago, my Mom was watching me make my lunch for work the next day, and she commented,

"It must be so easy cooking for one."
At first I wanted to say, "Why yes, it is!" But the more I thought about it, the more I realized that this is not necessarily the case. There are some ways in which cooking for one is no different than cooking for several.
For instance...
I still have to pull out all the same ingredients for a recipe or dish no matter how many people are eating it.I probably have to dirty the same amount of dishes, too.Cooking for one does mean smaller quantities. But it also means things go bad before you can eat them up.It also means you might be eating the same dish several times to eat up all the leftovers before they go bad.
Cooking for one may not have the same challenges as cooking for a crowd, but it does have its own set of challenges to work through! So with that in mind I'd like to share some of the tips, recipes, and money-saving ideas I&…

Instadump and what my crazy days look like

Image
It is time for a little insta-dump, which is in no way affiliated with Instagram, however I am blaming it entirely on them. If Instagram wasn't so great, I wouldn't have way to many photos of random things to share. It is all IG's fault. :)

Here are snapshots of what I have been up to recently. Oh, and in case you were wondering, here is my Instagram feed, where you will find even more daily photos that I am hashtagging #mycrazylifetoday. Lets make that a thing, ok? Because it has been really fun to share them and I want to see your crazy life today too. :)











So tell me...what does your crazy life look like today? Hashtag it here.
