I heart bins…
…and baskets, and boxes, and canisters, and jars. You get the idea, but you might be wondering why?
Life is hard. Organizing makes it easier.
I started IHB when life was at its hardest. As a working mom of 3 young kids, “balance” seemed more myth than obtainable and my days often left me feeling overwhelmed and exhausted. *cue the tears* Sound familiar?
In my family’s most chaotic seasons (and with a set of twins, trust me, there are plenty!) I turn time and time again to the one thing that always helps: organization.
The things we keep in our home (especially clutter) impact our physical and mental well-being. So whether it’s tidying a closet, going through a junk drawer or turning an unused corner in our home into a functional and beautiful space, creating physical order creates order in my mind. It’s like taking 3 deep breaths and going for a long walk, only better. So in 2017, I started blogging to share this simple secret with others:
When your home is in order, your energy is freed from tidying to focus on the people and passions that matter most.
What matters most to me is family, gummy bears, experiences, consuming responsibly, and lifting up other women (not necessarily in that order). That’s why I’m thrilled to add custom products through the IHB shop and pay-it-forward by donating 10% of shop profits to organizations that support women’s initiatives.
