My name is Casey. I geek out about organizing. I am addicted to aesthetics, small space storage solutions, DIY projects, and all things aqua. I make up silly songs all day long (kinda like that scene from Elf), and I can’t have a conversation if it doesn’t involve funny movie quotes. I don’t know how to put this, but I’m kind of a big deal. (Ok, not really, but I DO own many leather-bound books…;)
I used to be a total mess. Once I started letting go of the idea of “perfect,” I found freedom. I stopped trying to fit the mold & learned how to make organization work with my natural habits, and I have become obsessed with creative organizing solutions ever since!
I live in a sweet, tiny little house with my hubby Leif and two fabulous rescue dogs. Between our busy schedules, short attention spans, 5 million hobbies & running two businesses from home full time (as well as his full time job as a college instructor!), we have had to do a LOT of thinking outside of the box when it comes to storage & organization. I hope you enjoy all of our adventures — welcome to the blog!
About the logo:
Okay, without going all Zen-master on you, I wanted to quickly explain our yin yang logo. Life is all about balance, right? I have found that it’s easier to stay organized when things are pretty, but I don’t want to give up on enjoying life to tweak and perfect every little detail. Organizing should simplify life, not complicate it! I do what I can to add beauty to my organizing systems because they make me happy, but I also try to stop when I know things are good enough. With every new system or project, it is my goal to make it easier to be organized than disorganized. So, the yin yang represents the many things we balance each day: utility and beauty, overcoming challenges, and, y’know, keeping our stuff together!
