Want to make it look like you have a team of tiny Medieval warriors doing your bidding? Or maybe you want a subtle way of showing how much you don’t like your work. These push pins can help with that.
What happens when a minimalist mom living in a small trendy downtown apartment meets a country boy packrat? Well, if it was a sitcom, hilarity would ensue. Reality? A little stressful.
I always thought I was a disorganized weirdo, but when I started reading about my Myers-Briggs personality type, things started to make sense. I had to work WITH my personality type to get the neat house I wanted.
We talk a lot about successfully riding the bucking stallion of cleaning and organizing, and today Nony from A Slob Comes Clean comes on board as our new sponsor.
