May Family Goals Printable and May Blog Goals




Well spring has finally sprung here in Southern Ontario!  I love spring and summer and I'm so happy to see all the flowers blooming and signs of new life everywhere after a long winter.  And the warm weather is great too :)

I'm here today to share the May Family Goals printable with you.  A few months ago I posted about how we use our monthly family goals sheet and I plan to share a new one each month so you can also create a monthly goals page in your family.

You've Got {Too Much} Email! - Challenge Update Week 1




On Saturday I launched the "You've Got {Too Much} Email" challenge.  Some of you may have missed it since it was such a beautiful spring weekend (around here anyway) and you were probably out enjoying it.  If you missed the introductory post, you can click here to read all about it.

As promised, every Monday evening I will post my update on how many emails I deleted during that week.  So here it is!

Organizing Ideas For The Weekend #17



Happy Friday!  Time for another organizing idea for your weekend :) 

Do you have a lot of emails in your inbox?  Or in folders in your email account?  With unlimited storage these days, it seems many of us have taken that option literally and we keep WAY too many emails.

I've been working lately on cleaning up my email accounts.  I have thousands of emails that I will never look at again and the more they accumulate, the more overwhelmed I feel.  And I use my email accounts so often that it's emotionally draining to see them all there.

I Love Freecycle - calendars




Happy Earth Day!  One of the ways I love to take care of the planet is to use Freecycle.  It's such a great place to give away things you no longer need, use, or love, rather than sending them to a landfill.  It's also a wonderful way to find things that you're looking for, rather than buying them new.

In honour of Earth Day, I thought I'd share another "I Love Freecycle!" post so I can to share with you some of my latest finds and show some things I've given away.   You can see my previous I Love Freecycle posts here, for more on how Freecycle works and why I love it so much.

Organizing Ideas For The Weekend #16




Happy Friday!  Time for another organizing idea for your weekend :)  It's been awhile since I last shared one of these posts so I'm excited to get the series back in motion again!

Do you have a junk drawer in your kitchen?  Are you sometimes frantically searching for something that you know you put in a drawer, but now that drawer is so cluttered you can't find anything in it?

Been there?  Done that?  

It's great to have a drawer that you can use to store a variety of items, but if it's not organized it becomes more of a hassle than it's worth!

Today I'll be sharing some tips to help you turn that overwhelming drawer into a place of organizational beauty :)

April Family Goals Printable and April Blog Goals




Wow!  It's April!  It still feels like winter here in Ontario (although we had a few tastes of spring-like weather on the weekend!) but I'm hopeful that by the end of this month we'll be firmly into the spring season.

I'm here today to share the April Family Goals sheet with you.  A few months ago I posted about how we use our monthly family goals sheet and I plan to share a new one each month so you can also create a monthly goals page in your family.
