(A semi-homemade way to make these would be to use the little Debbie brownies and cookies for the RIP sign)

Declutter!



{image via: space4u.homestead.com}
Getting rid of clutter can be done very simple. First start off by going through your items, by sections, closets, drawers, or rooms at a time, and get rid of everything that is not essential to you. Seeing how everyone has their own way of decluttering. I put together seven tips that have been helpful for me.
Enjoy!
  1. Set aside time everyday to declutter an area in your home.
  2. Separate your wants from your needs.
  3. Donate whatever you are not currently using.
  4. Clean while you cook.
  5. Create a six months or a one year box (if you have not used or wore the items in that amount of time. You most likely do not need it.)
  6. declutter one room at a time
  7. Have a declutter day (set aside a couple of days a year where you spend the day decluttering your home).
What are your best decluttering tips?

Wall Decals

Here are some of my favorite online finds.
One of the d├ęcor accents I like is wall decals. They come in so many different sizes, colors and fonts. I also like that fact that they are not permanent. If you want to remove them, all you have to do is peel it off. No wall damage!

Here are a few wall decals I like.

Entry Way

I have been looking for an entry way table for way to long, if you ask me a very long time now. I would love to have one that is solid wood with storage space. Our entry way is tiny and very narrow. Below are some of the ideas I have in mind. I plan on going to a Consignment shop to see if they have any goodies I can revamp!

Do More!

While doing my daily reads, I came across a poem one of my fellow bloggers wrote.
Enjoy!

One Step Further

Do more than exist: LIVE
Do more than touch: FEEL
Do more than look: OBSERVE
Do more than read: ABSORB
Do more than hear: LISTEN
Do more than listen: UNDERSTAND
Do more than think: REFLECT
Do more than just talk: SAY SOMETHING

What about his chair? Do you believe my son picked out his chair himself? (He has great taste!) This is actually an adult chair; this chair is the perfect size for his room. Not to big and not to small. This chair truly complements the style of his room.



Stay tuned for a sneak Peak
