How to Spring Clean Your Life in a Week


What exactly is it about spring that makes us want to organize and declutter everything we own? I don't really know the answer to that, but I don't hate it! This spring has started out really weird weather wise and I know the majority of the country can agree with that (and if you can't then I'm not quite sure exactly how to express how jealous I am!) and bad weather = weird funks and moods. Since we can't control the weather or do much other than pray for some warmth (make that STAT...) the one thing we can do is work on is clean out our lives in more ways than just organizing your closet. Here's what to take a closer look at and consider giving a good "spring cleaning" to this season:

Happy... April!! I had to think about that one for a second! I hope your Easter/Passover weekends (if you celebrate!) were filled with family, celebrating God and warm spring weather - it finally was warm here! Today not so much - I do NOT want to talk about what's on the ground right now (hint: it's white) and the fact that the Yankees Home Opener was switched to tomorrow, but the sun is supposed to come out later so hopefully it melts quickly! I have way too many cute spring things to be wearing to deal with this snow in April LOL!

What to Pack in Your Handbag While Traveling


Between TSA, meeting weight requirements and remembering everything you need when traveling, it's not easy to know what to prioritize and pack in your handbag and carry-on bag vs. your checked luggage.

But if you get creative you don't have to worry about that. ;) I know I could always use a guide when packing, so here's everything to remember to pack in your handbag when traveling:
