I don't know about you, but I find spring cleaning to be deeply cathartic. I'm not crazy about the actual process, but I love the positive, fresh energy I feel after cleaning out all the gunk.
Spring has officially sprung. Now's the time to shed your winter coat, tidy up the boxes in the attic and sweep away all that dust in the garage. Wh...
Have you ever spent time with a friend, colleague or loved one who leaves you feeling as if the life has been sucked right out of you? Completely deflated? Low on energy? Your personal drive plummeted to the ground?
Minimalism -- it's the lifestyle movement du jour. Fueled in part by the runaway success of Marie Kondo's book The Life-Changing Art of Tidying Up, which has sold over three million copies, aspirations for a minimalist life are on the rise.
Hey, you: stop scrubbing that SpaghettiOs crust. There's a much easier method for cleaning the mess in your microwave, and it doesn't involve paying someone else to do it.
Sure, their advice can be lame/hard-to-swallow/cloying at times, but as much as it pains us to say this out loud: Moms really do know best.
