Since I get SO many questions about how I store and organize my digital photos, and since most people take a bazillion photos over the holiday season, I figured it was time for a blog post dedicated to digital photo organization.
Today, I’m sharing my relatively quick and simple 3-step process to store, organize, and backup all my digital photos.
Scarves are my most favorite accessory… and over the past 5+ years of wearing scarves almost every day, I’ve come up with a fairly simple system to keep them neat and organized.
It takes up very little space in my closet, it costs almost nothing, and it requires very little (if any) tools to put into place!
Today is Dave’s birthday, and I thought we’d celebrate on the blog by doing a fun giveaway!
I also have a super cute video of Nora and Simon trying out our new simplehuman soap pump 🙂
There are so many times when we (myself included) have our own agendas for giving — we want to give what WE want to give, whether it is useful or needed or appreciated by the recipient.
I hope today’s post reminds all of us to take few minutes to think how our gifts might best be used — not only for family and friends but also donations and other charitable giving!
I wasn’t planning to do a post about “simplifying Christmas”, but after receiving an astonishing number of emails, comments, and Facebook messages requesting this post, I decided to share 5 things we do (or rather DON’T do) to simplify our holiday season.
Yesterday, I shared a few of my favorite things; and today, I get to GIVE AWAY a bunch of my favorite things… Christmas Cards!!
Minted.com is giving away $300 worth of Christmas cards to my readers… and their cards are AMAZING!
Last week I was telling Dave how I couldn’t believe I have been doing these Favorite Things posts for almost 4 years now — and I don’t think I’ve repeated anything!
I have a few more goodies to share this month… as always, be sure to check out some of my favorite things from past months and share your favorite things in the comments!
Anyone who’s read my blog for any amount of time knows I’m a huge advocate for buying secondhand whenever possible — and if I can save a bunch buying secondhand online, I’m even happier yet!
Today I’m sharing one of my favorite ways to shop and save ONLINE with thredUP (and I have a great discount coupon for new customers too!)
These EASY Oreo Cheesecake Cupcakes are pretty much the perfect dessert for any meal, any time of day, all year long (at least in my cheesecake-loving opinion!)
They are also a simple, make-ahead dessert that travels well and will be a welcome addition to all your holiday parties!
Last week was not a normal week for our family due to Nora’s birthday and Dave being home most of the week for Thanksgiving break… however, it’s been almost 2 months since my last Peek Into Our Week post, so I was due for an update!
I’m sharing more about Nora’s Frozen-themed birthday parties, our menu plan, and what we did over Thanksgiving break.
This time of year always seems to be extra busy. Many of us will feel like we have more requests for our time than we have hours in the day. We’ll be “pulled” in too many different directions; and in order to stay sane, we’ll need to make some conscious decisions as to how we will (and will not) spend our time.
Today, I’m sharing a relatively simple system I use to divvy up the tasks on my to-do list in order to make time for the things that are more important for me.
While I’m not trying to rush my most favorite holiday away, I also know that by tomorrow evening, some of you might be stranded in your kitchen with piles and piles of delicious Thanksgiving leftovers — and no desire to spend hours in the kitchen dealing with them all.
Today, I’m sharing a bunch of simple recipes and ideas I use to repurpose our Thanksgiving leftovers!
Our sweet, sassy, stubborn, strong-willed Nora is FIVE years old today! How can that be?!?!
I’ll share more about her Frozen-themed birthday party next week… Today, I’m simply sharing some of my favorite pictures from the past several months.
A few years ago, I shared one of my simplest and best tips to save money on every purchase by taking 1 minute to quickly look over my receipt before I leave the store.
Today, I’m sharing another simple thing I do every time I buy anything… and I’m always amazed how much I save!
Have you ever felt like you were juggling too many responsibilities, being pulled in too many different directions, or “wearing too many hats”?
If so, I hope today’s post will help you take a step back, look at ALL those good things you’re doing, and figure out a way to cut back. It won’t be easy, but I don’t think you’ll regret it.
It’s THAT time of year again — time to order next year’s planner!
My amazing Personal Planner arrived last week… and since it’s just 7 weeks until the New Year, I’m giving away a handful of Personal Planners today (and the giveaway is open worldwide!!!!)
After tweaking my favorite lasagna recipe a few different times, I landed on a very simple “secret” that easily cuts 15 minutes (and lots of frustration) off my lasagna prep time!
If you hate boiling lasagna noodles, you’ll want to read today’s post 🙂
At the end of the summer, Nora and Simon unanimously decided they wanted to share a bedroom. I wasn’t so sure it would work, but 3 months later, they still LOVE sharing a room!
Today I’m sharing their super cute, boy-girl shared bedroom “makeover” using only things we already had in our house!
After several recent conversations with new moms… and after 5 years of collective experience nursing, pumping, and washing bottles, I’m sharing 5 thoughts that I hope will be encouraging to any mom struggling in her breastfeeding journey.
Over the past 12+ years of grocery shopping “on my own”, I estimate that I’ve been to the grocery store at least 6000 times!! Thankfully, I have a grocery list cheat-sheet that allows me to quickly and easily make my grocery list based on my store’s layout and saves me oodles of time at the store each week!
Today, I’m sharing that grocery list with anyone who wants it — totally editable and printable!
