What to do with all the paperwork???

How do you manage the never- ending influx of paper into the house or across your desk? You know what I mean: the invitations, forms to be completed and returned, bills to be paid, receipts to record, etc. etc. Do all the papers get piled up in a document tray and wait patiently for when you find the time to browse through them?

Whatever it is that does the hard work of carrying your important daily supplies, that’s what you can work on today. Reduce the clutter first. Gum wrappers, used tissues, loose receipts from lunch. Get them out of there. Rethink what you’ll carry with you. During...

The essential elements - Creativity & Order

When I think about what I love to do creativity plays a big part in all of them. Without being organised can we have creativity? Renowned author Gustave Flaubert said “Be orderly and disciplined in daily life, so that I might be wild and violent in my art.” You can see how the clutter in our life, the day to day challenges and stress of living in the world today is...

Keeping Kids' Stuff in Check

Kids are messy, and kids need to have the freedom to be messy. But I believe that kids should also be given the responsibility for helping clean up their messes. By the end of the day, my house often looks like a Lego bomb went off – does yours? I remember the first play-date I hosted with my mother’s group. It was a memorable new mum experience because I later found...
