Garage

what’s your garage mantra?

Ah. The garage. I like to think of the garage as one big closet (at least in Los Angeles). You see, it’s rare that folks in SoCal use their garage to park their car. I like to think that it’s because the weather is fabulous most of the year so our automobiles don’t need the extra […]

roommates: making it work when sharing a kitchen

I’ve always had a roommate. Regardless of with whom I’ve lived, I’ve noticed that there is one thing that holds true: the kitchen is the hotspot. By hotspot, I don’t mean a trendy, overpriced bar that everyone goes to only to leave unsatisfied and penniless two hours later. Nope, I’m talking about the hotspot for clutter, […]

how to share a closet with your main squeeze

I can remember being pretty stoked when Adam (my beau) wanted to move in together. I was excited to say goodbye to roommates and hello to my soul mate. Not that my roommate wasn’t great but it’s just different. With Adam, I get to share everything, walk around the house in the buff (if I want) […]

saving time with shared living

When you move in with someone new, the natural focus is on your physical space and how this new person will affect it.
