Kids and sanctuaries. Stress and sanctuaries. Work/homeschool and sanctuaries.
This week will rock you. We were formally Taylor Swift and Marilyn Manson but we have finally found common ground when it comes to our homes!
I feel overwhelmed by housework. My brain can’t seem to process monotonous tasks like de-cluttering. There is a HUGE difference between how I want my house to look and how it looks right now.
Dana K. White is an author, podcaster, speaker, and (much to her own surprise) a Decluttering Expert. In a desperate attempt to get her own home under control, Dana started blogging as "Nony" (short for anonymous) at A Slob Comes Clean in 2009. Today, Dana shares realistic home management strategies and a message of hope for the hopelessly messy in her books: Decluttering at the Speed of Life and How to Manage Your Home Without Losing Your Mind. Dana lives with her husband and three kids just outside of Dallas, Texas. Oh, and she's funny.
I don’t even have a place to BE in this house! What am I even going for design-wise?
These are valid and we are here to help! Struggling Sisters are at it again talking about how to make your house into a sanctuary with our organization tips plus ideas on how to make your very own most-favorite spot. Em shares how hard it is to wake up in the mornings and how she likes to live by lamp light most hours of the day. Katie makes fun of Emily accordingly and all is right in the land of the Struggling Sisters. Enjoy!
