Organization Is Not Perfection PDF Print E-mail
I love this quote!  As I've mentioned many, many times, I'm not a naturally organized person.  It's something I have to concentrate on and work at on a daily basis.   If I can stay on top of things 80% of the time, I feel like I'm winning! 
If getting organized is something you've been working toward, but find yourself falling down on occasion, forgive yourself and get right back to it as soon as you can.  You'll find yourself starting to have longer and longer stretches of being organized which is so worth the serenity that organization brings!  - Melissa Tosetti
Storage Lessons From Tiny Homes PDF Print E-mail

By Melissa Tosetti

I've been a fan of small homes for a long time.  The movement toward smaller homes has gained steam, especially in the last year, with television shows about microscopic living cropping up across cable networks.

Just a few of the biggest perks include: 

  • A much smaller mortgage
  • Smaller utility bills
  • Less time cleaning

However, there are definitely challenges to tiny and small home living and storage space is the biggest one - especially when you, your husband and your 8 year old son are all book collectors. 

Tiny homes are loosely described as less than 1,000 square feet.  At 1,200 square feet, our home falls into the small category and storage is definitely a challenge.  In fact, one of our projects this spring is to cull through our attic and reorganize the space for better use.  Our more urgent projects are storage for Dante's room as well as my office.

There are a lot of lessons to learn regarding clever storage space from the tiny house movement and we've been paying close attention.  Today I stumbled on this article: 11 Lessons We Can Learn From AirBNB's Tiniest Homes.

My favorite lesson from the article is the use of vertical space.  It's a tip we can use, especially in Dante's bedroom!


Spring Cleaning Motivation PDF Print E-mail

By Melissa Tosetti

Despite what the weather looks like on the East Coast, according to the retail industry, it's SPRING!

That means, anything and everything related to spring cleaning will be on sale.  This is my favorite time to stock up on my go-to cleaning and home care products including:

  • Comet
  • Windex
  • Pinesol
  • Febreze

With an eight year old, a dog, a hamster and a husband who teaches martial arts for a living, Febreze is a treasured product in our household. 

In addition to cleaning products, cleaning equipment will also be on sale.  So, if you're in the market for a new vaccum cleaner or carpet steam cleaner, start watching your favorite store's sales ads.  Over the next six weeks they'll be at some of the best prices of the year.
