Little Pieces at a Time 

With my new schedule, I've been working on bits and pieces of the apartment and getting things in order & really cleaned up.   I've loved getting to do little by little and making life simpler. A big part of that is purging some of the things we don't have to have anymore, so I've spent... Continue Reading →


Organizing Update

Today I took a day off work & got to work on the house organization project. I was so stoked to have some time, that wasn't a weekend, to just work on it. I get frustrated spending a whole Saturday and not feeling like I've gotten much done & by taking the time to work... Continue Reading →

End of 2017 Goals

Last night, I asked Loss how he felt about having one of my friends visit for a few nights in December. As I figured, he was pretty chill about it except for one thing: we have to have the house in order. From there, my brain started going. I've been getting an idea of what... Continue Reading →


Pockets of Organization

If you saw my post last week, I was about fed up with my closet area. It's small and overfilled with things that probably don't even belong there. In order to keep my sanity though, I took 20 minutes or so and tackled the top of the dresser. Yes, it's a small space, but by... Continue Reading →


The Closet: Before

Do you ever look at your closet or dresser and just go "UGH!"? I'm there. We have a tiny apartment with very little storage and it's almost driving me batty. It's almost like every time I get it organized and set up, a few things wind up in the floor and it falls apart. I... Continue Reading →


Small Biz Saturday: The Notebook

In the effort to get organized and get this thing called JLB Nerdy Social Media Services (name still being worked on), I decided to start a notebook for the job. I found an extra notebook at my parents' house and got to work. I printed off some calendar pages for the rest of this year... Continue Reading →


Paring Down: Bye, Chair!

As noted in the last time I wrote, it's time to downsize- and I started off with a bang. The hand me down chair I inherited four years ago or finally left the premises. Now the chair was still in pretty good condition, but let's face it, after a few years, I have a tendency... Continue Reading →


Paring Down Life to Travel

I've been thinking and plotting and thinking about how much we could live without in our lives. We've got an awesome family and some amazing friends and have gotten to have some fun adventures. When Losson and I think about these things, we realize how much STUFF we have and we truly don't need. I've... Continue Reading →


The Journey: Everything in its Place

  For some reason, this January keeps calling to our apartment. There's so much to do, so much to downsize & so much to just plain ole throw away. I've got a new game I keep playing: I find a few things to move around or clean up, then I finish that & then its... Continue Reading →
