MakeSpace: My Experience

I’m going to bore you with some details. My husband is a TV writer (he thinks this affords him the ability to not put away his clothes). He is mistaken. I mention his work because it has affected our lives in a major way the past two years. Remember this shoot for Real Simple? Well the […]

Before and After: A Closet Room Creation for The Hollywood Reporter

My friend, Abby Stone (what a great name, right?) called me on November 5th of last year. She wanted to talk closets. Specifically, doing a make-over of a closet for The Hollywood Reporter. I was excited. Closet makeovers are my fave (besides email decluttering and time management). And maybe kitchen pantries… The spin for the story […]

photoorganizing

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 […]
