organizing digital pics; part I

Organizing your digital photos is having a moment. I have gotten numerous inquiries over the past six months to help clients tame the photo beast (and have had to turn them away). I, myself, am a candidate for a good old fashioned photo organizing session as I have yet to figure out how to get photos […]

mo’ pens mo’ problems

You guys, I literally gathered up every pen, pencil, marker, magic marker (there is a difference), highlighter and colored pencil in my home. I looked in the car, the garage (I know) the desk drawer, the office closet, the purse and the kitchen. Whew, that was a mouthful. If you’re over the age of 35, […]

email and paperless workshops for sale

You guys. You guys. Tomorrow I will have done seven workshops in the last few months. That might be a record for this gal right here. I was lucky enough to get called upon by the Creative Live folks up in San Francisco and taped two workshops (email decluttering and going kinda paperless). The cool thing about these […]

No more Real Housewives (apologies, Andy Cohen, but it has to be this way). I wonder how I’m going to break the news to my hubster about the upcoming season […]

how to: make a rule, um, i mean filter in gmail

I love mail. This is no secret. BUT junk mail can seriously su#$ it. I’m serious. It clogs my inbox to the point of overwhelm and frustration. Most of it from someone in Zimbabwe or Russia selling me anything related to that three letter word… (sex). Yes, I said it. This blog is no longer […]

let’s make time management cool

Time management. Pretty boring term, huh? It’s right up there with net neutrality and that is being kind (to net neutrality). Besides sounding overly corporate, time management sounds boring because most folks have negative associations with managing their time. A lot of us feel like we can’t get it all done, so we must be poor time managers. #nottrue […]

how to create a capsule collection

We’re talking wardrobe folks– capsule collection is a really fancy way to say I paired my sh$% down to 37 pieces of clothing that can mix and match with ease. I heard about if first from my friend Abby, who heard it from a blog called Unfancy. If everyone is talking about it, it’s worth […]

Our MakeSpace Try-Out

Those of you who know us well know that we preach the gospel of “Less is More” and we mean it. However, for city dwellers that live in small apartments and even home owners in Los Angeles (aka the land without basements), necessary storage is hard to come by. And sometimes, even if you’re living the decluttered […]
