I’ve read a lot of tips about clothes purging and decluttering that suggest sorting items into three piles: Keep, Donate, and Sell. I tried this when I began my wardrobe simplification project, but it didn’t work for me. I am just not good at letting things go on the spot like that. Also, my bigger goal is to find and develop my own personal style.
Going paperless is a big challenge and a big step toward a more earth-friendly kitchen (and a money-saver to boot!). But it’s not the only way to go green in the kitchen.

When we moved into our home, I was in love with the wood floor in the dining room. But I must admit, I was a little scared that we would ruin them! I’ve always gotten the impression that wood floors are hard to care for. Truth is, wood floors are actually wonderfully durable and pretty easy to maintain.
