This is how I hope I feel when I go wifi freeeeee!

phone free weekends…

It’s been almost three weeks since I’ve returned from The Unique Camp – a creative business summit held up in Big Bear. I have found the experience impossible to put into words – even though it’s all I could talk about the week after I returned home. My husband and friends all nodded their heads with […]

Real Simple May 2016

did you spot me in Real Simple Magazine?!!

I have never been so excited (ok, maybe when Adam and I got engaged and the day we got married are stiff competition) but still, this is pretty epic. Real Simple came to our house back in December (ages ago) and shot it for the May FEATURE. EEEEEP. I’m not sure who is the bigger […]

minimalism book, yo!

Hello world!! I am in the final stages of writing a book proposal about minimalism. For a lot of folks, minimalism sounds scary. I chalk that up to ‘the fear of the unknown.’ Your neighbors just don’t realize how accessible, life changing and FUN the minimalist lifestyle can be. This book aims to show boatloads […]

the one thing your inbox number tells me

Like a crystal ball, your email inbox count can tell me a lot about you as a person… (oh how I wish that was true). Your inbox number can really only tell me how many emails you do (or don’t) have in your email inbox. A lot of emails in your inbox doesn’t necessarily mean you’re […]

organizing digital pics; part II

If organizing photos was tossed around like a phrase, it would be titled ‘complicated as fuc%$*&.’ I am not kidding. Remember how I had that appointment at The Genius Bar. Yea, that amounted to nada. I mean, I felt like I was plopped right inside an episode of “True Detective” (season 2). He was definitely speaking […]

containers that care

We all know that one of the last steps in the organizing process is to containerize, riiiiight? And while the Bneato Bar team will always try to repurpose what a client already has, sometimes our clients prefer something new (nothing wrong with that)! We also encounter projects where there was no container to begin with […]

let’s put a stop to unplanned shopping trips

This past Saturday was like any other Saturday; sorta planned and sorta not. Errands, maybe lunch out, a Genius Bar appointment—you know, the usual. Except this particular Saturday eve was extra special and out of the ordinary (for me at least). I mean, it’s not every day that I have dinner plans with a bonafide […]

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, […]
