Minimizing Stress- what’s under my control?

In life, there are certain things that are out of our control. Other’s behaviors, weather patterns, cars that randomly start doing weird things, the fact that your computer acts up just when you’re trying to write a blog post… (oh wait! Maybe that’s just my current plight, lol!)


But when things seem to be spinning out of control, do you really need the added frustration that comes when you can’t find the blouse you need for that interview or the piece of paper the bank is demanding to complete your mortgage process?! Enter organization. Some people feel that it’s difficult to stay organized or that they don’t have the time. However, it’s actually harder and more time consuming not to be!

Take charge of your life and time today by getting a handle on what you can change. It will make you feel better able to manage your every day- LIKE A BOSS!

Maybe you should try my organizing challenge starting with Day One? 🙂

Dollar Tree Ikea Hack!



Today at Dollar Tree, I found some great round magnetic containers in a couple of sizes made by Jot. If you’ve been on Pinterest, you’re likely familiar with these handy little things. Dollar Tree has made them more affordable! The larger are a $1 each and the smaller come in a two pack for your same dollar. If you can’t find them in store, order them here. Instead of telling you what you can do with them– let me show you!


Editing your Inbox



Every morning they plague me. Stare at me. Filling up the space. Cyberspace. I could just ignore them. I could delete them. That’s what I usually do. But they’ll be back. And…they multiply.

I’m talking about emails of course. Most of which I’ve subscribed to at some point. I’m sure I thought I’d read them, but the fact is I don’t have time. So I delete most of them still unopened. But that takes up my time as well. Does this sound familiar to you?

Then how about taking my inbox challenge? Every morning I’ve been hitting unsubscribe on two unwanted emails. Just two! Every company is required to offer some kind of opportunity to unsubscribe at the bottom of every email, so just scroll down, and a couple of clicks later your inbox will already feel a bit lighter! Repeat daily until all that’s left if what you truly have time for. More time, more freedom. Enjoy 🙂
