How to tackle large projects with your Planner

Here's what always happens to me: I should organize the linen closet in the guest bathroom. Well I might as well organize the linen closet in the hallway too... well if I'm going to put some of this stuff in the master bathroom I better clean out that one, too. Man these closets shouldn't be so full I need to purge everything! If I'm going to make a trip to Goodwill I better just sort every cupboard in the entire house. And then I'm overwhelmed. A similar thing happens when I decide to paint something. Recently, it was: If we're moving our master bedroom around...

The Inside Scoop of a Small, Mom-Owned Biz

The Inside Scoop of a Small, Mom-Owned Biz

Lindsay and I really pride ourselves on being a small, mom-owned business. We think it is a unique entrepreneurial niche to be in, and being involved in every part of the process makes each product and item special. Everything we do is done in house, and every product is touched by us! That might not sound like a big deal, but many companies in the same line of business as us outsource a bunch of their work. Lindsay and I are proud to say that we do every step of every product in our shop, start to finish! When we...

The artist/owner was super great to work with (I ordered the wrong size), too, so check out his stuff or support your own local makers! I...

Amber's Organizational Routine

Amber's Organizational Routine

I had a friend ask me about how I use my planner because she was kind of struggling with always having hers accessible when she needed it vs. when she could really take the time at home to write in it. That’s kind of how this blog idea came to mind. Because I hadn’t really thought about WHY I used the system I do until we were exchanging tips and stories. Surprisingly, the answers kind of lie in the layout of our homes! My friend likes to take her planner with her everywhere she goes, that way she can write...

Lindsay's 3 Favorite Products

behind the scenes how to planner planner organization

I love reading posts about how to use products, and how different individuals organize their lives. There’s just something about both “behind the scenes” looks and tangible “how tos” that I enjoy spending my time on. Amber calls me a “researcher” so maybe that’s part of it. Ha! I have always enjoyed structure, lists, and organization, and being able to create tools that help myself and others is so much fun!  I’d love to share with you my favorite 3 products, as well as how I use them. Our meal planners were actually one of our first notepad designs and...
