wow. my house is perfectly organized now!….said no one ever.
Ever stumbled across an organization board on Pinterest or read a blog with drool-worthy photos of perfectly organized linen cabinets and spotless bathrooms? Ever read a post about a mom making her child’s lunch with mini monogrammed umbrellas stuck in the grapes? And then we sigh and wish we were rich, perfectly organized, and had it all together.
But you know what? Life isn’t a staged photograph. It’s your own home-movie and YOU are the star. It’s imperfect, it’s sometimes messy, but when things work (and they stay working) it’s glorious and it’s worth sharing.
And that’s where I come in. I’m a video blogger and frugal mommy. I share with you what organization and budget living is for a REAL person… when you take away the perfectly staged photos and props. Me, my camera and real systems that work for me to make your life better and easier. 🙂
For me, living organized on a dime is a source of creativity and great joy. Finding ways of stretching a dollar means I have more chances to have fun getting there. It makes me shop more thoughtfully, buy second hand, turn to more natural products, and eat healthier. I find systems that work. And I toss the ones that don’t. I live it by choice and do it intentionally. Dollar Tree? Yes please. Goodwill? You betcha. FREE? I’ll find it (and do my best to make it beautiful).
Organization shouldn’t be dreaded work. The best systems never are. For me, living on less and living organized is truly FUN.
Follow me–imperfections and all–as I live life on a dime.
