The No Cholesterol Choice That Can Help Save You and the Environment

Welcome to this weeks eco-friendly Friday! I hope everyone has had a wonderful work week and is ready to kick off the weekend with some potential new life choices. Don't worry, I'm not about to tell you to put on some slippers and cancel all of your plans, although I can recommend some stellar Netflix [...]

Decluttering: Expectations vs. Reality

Decluttering: Expectations vs. Reality

I'm definitely a freak for a clean house, but who else gets royally jazzed up over having the chores done? Last Thursday afternoon I went to my couch, commandeered my television from my kids, and faced Mount Laundry yet again.
