Besides being an organizing diva, I like to consider myself a pretty good cook. As a child I always had the cooking position of prep…I can shred cheese or chop lettuce like no other!! Once a week you will find me in my kitchen cooking like a mad women. No, I am not throwing a... Read more »

The Night Before

I am a morning person. I always have been and always will be. I bound out of bed every morning at 6 am(partially due to my very demanding cats that want to be fed), fix my breakfast, and head to the home office. I have my little routine and it works for me. After answering... Read more »

Sample Swiping..Guilty as Charged!

Okay, I am making a pretty big confession here. Two years ago at my brothers wedding, we figured out the maid service came twice a day so we stashed the extra soap in our suitcases. After the weekend of joy, I came away with a nice stash of L’Occcitane products. I was one happy chick.... Read more »

Trash to Cash

Yes I love Craigslist. Its amazing what people will buy. When I bought my condo last year, I was able to get rid of alot of items that I didnt need for the new place. As a general rule of thumb, most people expect to pay around 30 to 60% of cost of the items... Read more »
