Laura's story is a real example of how coaching, mentoring, and support can help you overcome your challenges and create the life that you want to live.

Laura was struggling with physical clutter, mental clutter, too many activities and her mental health was a reflection of all this chaos.

Before: "I feel in such darkness, trapped in the lifestyle that can't move"

After: " I feel alive, lighter, freer, happier, fresher. Every piece of my life has reason now"

She enrolled in our coaching program and since then she has been able to make DRAMATIC improvements in her life.

She wants to share her story to inspire others to take action.

Learn tips that will help you declutter your closet.

Capsule wardrobe helps you simplify your closet and keep only the things that you love to wear. Also, allows you to be more intentional with the things you want to wear depending on the season we are in.

If you are feeling frustrated and you don’t know what to wear in the mornings, this video is for you!

Project 333 is the minimalist fashion challenge that invites you to dress with 33 items or less for 3 months.

Project 333 – The Rules

When: Every three months (It’s never too late to start so join in anytime!)

What: 33 items including clothing, accessories, jewelry, outerwear, and shoes.

What not: these items are not counted as part of the 33 items – wedding ring or another sentimental piece of jewelry that you never take off, underwear, sleepwear, in-home lounge wear,  and workout clothing (you can only wear your workout clothing to workout)

How: Choose your 33 items, box up the remainder of your fashion statement, seal it with tape and put it out of sight.

What else: consider that you are creating a wardrobe that you can live, work and play in for three months. Remember that this is not a project in suffering. If your clothes don’t fit or are in poor condition,

The way you fold and store clothes will change dramatically how you can use the space and how easy it’s to access your clothes. In the video, Samantha shows how you can fold your clothes and store them up.

The challenge of getting organized and staying organized.

It’s normal to have clutter and feel overwhelmed when you have a young family, work full-time, and want to maintain a social life.

Rosie called us and informed us about the new segments they were producing to provide helpful advice for their viewers.

Decluttering and Organizing your garage can be FUN!  Make the most of your space by following these tips:

The first step for success is to define your desired outcome. What do you want to store in it? What kind of activities are you planning on doing in your garage? (Examples: storage, gym, music room, crafts) Would you like to park your car inside?

Make sure you book enough time to get the project done. It’s ok to ask for help if you don’t have the time or if you don’t know how to get started.

The next step is to declutter your items. Is there anything in your garage that doesn’t belong there or you don’t need anymore? If you run into unwanted items you can give them a new life by selling/auctioning/consigning/donating them. Please don’t take them to the landfill. Someone else will be very happy using them :).

Once you have only the items that belong in your garage, then it’s time to organize them. You need to find homes for every item. Use labels (masking tape and a marker will do) to make sure you can find your items in the future.

Create a system that everybody can follow. 

Think vertically when it comes to organizing your items. Use the wall space as much as possible with multi-purpose hooks. Group things together (Examples: tools, sports equipment, Christmas decorations, Halloween decorations).

Follow these steps to declutter and organize your garage successfully.
