Anyone else feel like they are drowning in clutter? We moved back in June and I feel like despite trying to stay organized and minimal, our belongings multiplied. In the four months we’ve been in our house I’ve yet to organize our bathroom. I will blame that on being in a new setting, away from family, with a newborn and a brand new toddler. So we had two very cluttered and very messy bathrooms. I finally had enough and tackled both bathrooms. It took me way less time than I anticipated. I finished both bathrooms in one day by utilizing nap time and after I put the kids to bed. I probably spent no more than four hours total on this! And the difference is staggering! It is time to declutter your bathroom!
We all know that babies and toddlers go through clothes so fast! With two under two I felt like I was drowning in clothes. We had clothes that were too small, all their current clothes, seasonal clothes and a bunch of hand-me-downs. After touching up this system for a few months I finally feel like I have a handle on all their clothes and I can really tell that their closets and drawers feel so much more organized. I also know where everything should go! It’s been amazing. I hope that you can pick up some tips that might work for you.

Hello Third Trimester! The countdown to baby Evander is getting real. We have exactly 53 days until we hit our “baby window”. Gemma was born at 39 weeks and 0 days, so I’m predicting Evander’s arrival to fall somewhere in between 38-41 weeks. I am in full on nesting mode and I wanted to share a little bit about what I am doing this time around to prepare.
Gemma is officially ten months old! Even though our days were some what consistent, I still tended to be extremely flexible with her schedule. I truly let her dictate everything. However with Evander’s due date steadily creeping closer I decided to implement a stricter routine and I think everyone is LOVING it!
WELCOME to the the second blog post in my series titled: How to Organize and Simplify the Home. Today I’m going to give you a little sneak peek into Gemma’s nursery!!
When I found out I was pregnant I couldn’t wait to stay at home with my baby. However, because of financial reasons I had to be making some kind of income. In what felt like a stroke of luck, I was offered an accounting position that allowed me to do all my work from the comfort of my home. I quickly realized that working from home was not an easy task! Was it even possible to take care of my baby, myself, the home AND a job?
I am still learning to find balance in my hectic life but I have decided to take what I’ve learned these past two months and share them with you!
