musical motivation

And please don’t worry that you’ll disturb the neighbors with your guilty pleasure music. Who knows, you just might inspire others with your newfound energy. This week I thought I’d […]

are you a pen pal or card collector?

Stationary is one of those things that always catches my eye; be it at a bookstore, craft fair, or on someone’s fridge, I’m always tempted to lean in, admire the graphic and quirky text, and consider adding it to my collection (this includes begging a friend for a card her grandma sent her. I clearly […]

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 […]

the glove box clutter trap

In the first sentence of the definition of “glove compartment,” Wikipedia states, “often used for miscellaneous storage.” As someone who helps people unclutter their lives for a living, the phrase “miscellaneous storage” instantly sends up red flags.

A new life away from the TV

I’m embarrassed. My name is Beth Penn and I watch way too much TV. I also check my Instagram feed way too much. Duuuuuuuuuuuude. I’m done. 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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

how long does it actually take?

People aren’t usually maliciously late. Sure, sometimes it’s nice to take our time getting ready and showing up fashionably late to a party. But usually, people are late because they don’t realize how long things take. Or, on the other hand, they understand the time it takes to get out the door but perhaps they don’t […]
