Decluttering is good for you

I had such a busy week. You can read about it here. Yesterday I got to spend my Saturday at home without the kids. Lucky me! I never usually miss a footy day, but sometimes you just have to take some time out. I put the day to good use though (although I did catch up on RHOM Reunion special that I had recorded shhh!) and used the time to get my house (and in turn my thoughts) back in order. For me, a good clean up and putting things back in their place gets my mind back on track. I usually can’t sit to answer emails, or work on websites, or clients until all the chaos over my shoulder…

The realistic cull and organisation of my wardrobe

I’ve been meaning to cull and organise my wardrobe for months! Our wardrobe can get out of control very easily. It’s not a big space. I had to sacrifice that when we built this house because I couldn’t make it bigger due it’s position on our house block. But I was ok with that because it meant I could not hoard and I had to minimise the crap we had. Last week I decided I could almost halve that wardrobe. I was over all of my clothes and only ever wore the same few things. Fashion isn’t really my thing so I have a few nice things, but I mostly have house clothes! My husband works in a trade so he doesn’t have…

10 things you can clean right now

January makes me want to clean and sort stuff out. I wrote a post last month on the importance of editing your home, and I am determined to stick to it. For me, less clutter and mess means a clearer mind. Some people like to go for a run – I like to clean out my fridge haha! Anyhoo, today I thought I’d put a list together of some of the things I can whizz around and clean in no time. These aren’t tasks which take up half of your day, or require you to buy cleaning products, or lock the kids outside so you can get things done. These are just simple actions you can achieve in minutes… 1….

The importance of editing your home

Today I want to share some ideas on why I think it’s important we edit our homes over and over… It’s a way to take stock of what you’re living amongst and it’s also a great asset to have – ie. the ability to cull and declutter. A lot of people find it very difficult to let go of stuff, and in return they rarely realise they are hindering their own abundance… Your house is like a sponge, and it holds on to bad energy when you have too many things surrounding you. You need to be solid in your decision when it’s time to edit everything around you. Indecisiveness won’t help! If you start with a list, and break it down…

Review: Dyson V6 Absolute

Recently I was asked if I’d like to review the new Dyson V6 Absolute. How could I say no? Actually I was so excited that I even rang my husband at work and texted my best friend. I have wanted one of these little fellas for AGES! I knew it was going to change my life – for reals. I get ridiculously excited about cleaning products. I know, I’m crazy, but I live in a house with 4 males, so anything to keep things clean (and make my life easier) is a winner in my eyes. When the delivery man knocked on my door I practically snatched it out of his hands, got out my stanley knife and ripped it out…

Use vinegar to clean your home!

Did you know that you can use vinegar to clean just about anything in your home? It’s a handy little $2 bottle to have! Today I am going to share some ideas with you on where/how you can use vinegar… Floors Half a cup of white vinegar to a bucket of warm water. Limit its use on hardwood floors though. Windows Mix equal parts of white vinegar and warm water in a spray bottle. Spray on to window and wipe off with soft dry cloth (sometimes I use newspaper).

Remove negative energy in your home

Last week I decided there was too much negative Winter air in my house. My husband rolls his eyes when I start going on about negative energy, or feng shui, or clutter. When I feel like I am in a rut, or work isn’t flowing, or I am unwell I always think the energy around me needs to change. I had a really good clean up put a few feng shui practices in to play – out came the compass! That’s another post for another day haha… Even though you can’t see energy with the naked eye, you can certainly feel it. That’s what I was feeling and it was time to move it on. The energy left around can be a result…
