a simplified week

As part of Start Here. I post a weekly recap with a couple ideas (mostly simple and easy to implement) for the week’s focus and a few ideas from the web that I’ve enjoyed over the week. Did you grab July’s FREE cleaning and organizing calendar? Go here to grab it!


  • Is your purse weighing you down? Check out these tips from Clean Mama to make quick work of getting your purse cleaned out and clutter-free.
  • Need some good ideas for how to cut the clutter in your purse? I especially like the simple coupon organizing method. Via I Heart Planners
  • Leave it A Bowl Full of Lemons to have a great method of keeping everything tidy in your purse. I love the individual “kits” to keep everything in it’s place.

Something to Eat:

  • Four ingredients- frozen peaches, honey, plain yogurt and lemon – are all you need for this yummy peach frozen yogurt. No ice cream maker required! Via Mel’s Kitchen Cafe

Something to Make:

  • Need some art and craft supply storage help? If you are running short on space, check out this craft room makeover. I love the wall-mounted IKEA system to maximize every square inch of storage space. Via Unskinny Boppy

Something for the Kids:

  • Jumping on a giant water pillow? Count us in! Check out this fun summer activity from Modern Parents Messy Kids with a complete tutorial on how to make a giant water blob.
