Declutter or keep? Why not a bit of both?

As we live our lives, we do new things and go to new places. We buy things and receive gifts.  Inevitably we start to grow our belongings. One day we look around and realise that we have far too much ‘stuff’. We realise this because we’ve run out of space, and not everything has a place any more.

The mystery of cutlery drawer crumbs

The mystery of cutlery drawer crumbs

A cutlery drawer shouldn’t need cleaning often, in theory. But somehow it does…for some weird reason, there are always crumbs in there.

4 Simple steps to organise your movie collection

4 Simple steps to organise your movie collection

Making life easier for small business owners

Do you love or hate working for yourself?

Making life easier for small business owners

Being an owner of a small business is exciting, liberating and so rewarding. Generally such people work in a business that they enjoy, so many parts of it don’t even seem like work.

On the other hand, some aspects of working for yourself can be a chore and if you’re not careful, it can become stressful, demanding and lonely. There are things you do because there’s nobody else to do them for you, you don’t like them, but you know they are necessary to make your business succeed. Then there are those small businesses that have had to have large budget cuts, but still have to produce the same amount of work, but with less people to do it all.
