Looking at Productivity in a New Way

In our blog post Thoughts on Minimalism”, we researched some of the influencers in the minimalist movement.  One of the blogs we discovered is Be More With Less, by Courtney Carver.  In addition to writing several books on living a more simple life, she has many blog posts dedicated to documenting her thoughts on the topic.  One blog post, The Greatest Secret to Productivity That No One is Talking About, really struck a chord with us.

Using Color to Keep Your Wardrobe Current

Keeping your wardrobe current doesn’t have to be expensive, difficult or time consuming.  With many of us making a conscience decision to extensively edit our wardrobes it might be helpful to know that color can be a way to inject some “freshness” each season.  The retailers do such a good job at making us feel like we “need it all” that it is really tempting to purchase an all-new wardrobe every three months.  While this may sound fun to some, in reality we don’t have the time, energy or funds to keep it up for very long.  One way to keep ...

How to Organize Your Printed Photos

One of the most common projects people agonize over is how to organize all of their photographs.  Why does the thought of organizing printed photos strike fear in the hearts of so many?  There are several reasons people are overwhelmed by the thought of this project.  First, many people who see the importance of passing down family history (and pictures play a big role in documenting that history) don’t think they can successfully sort and store them for future generations to enjoy.  Second, people usually have photos stored all over their home in all sorts of containers and albums so it’s a monumental task just to gather them all together.  Third, ...

Spring Cleaning Statistics from SpareFoot.com

We want to share some fun statistics gathered by SpareFoot.com (the place to find the best deals on self-storage and full-service storage).  They sponsored a spring cleaning survey recently, and summarized the findings in the following infographic.  While you look over these findings, ask yourself where you fall.  Even though everyone has a different list of priorities (and some enjoy it more than others) it seems that most people do undertake some form of spring cleaning.  So, you are not alone…is that enough motivation to get you going?  So, go grab that broom and get sweeping!
