ABOUT ME

Hi! I'm Heather. I NUDGE people. That's my job and I love it.

I think REALISTIC organization can be a little bit MESSY.

I don't file papers every day. I have days when I go to bed with dirty dishes in the sink.

BUT HERE'S THE THING...

every item in my home has value to us. We evaluate each belonging to make sure it fits with the GOALS of our family.
It also has a HOME.

I have SYSTEMS in my house that work for me and my family.

When I had my (MELTDOWN) epiphany five years ago, I decided to "get organized." I went to the library and checked out TONS of books on organization. I also LOST CD 3 of a book on CD under the couch and a pile of Cheerios mixed with dust. I read every blog. I asked all of my naturally neat friends. I remember reading a story about a woman who slept on TOP OF HER COMFORTER so she never had to make her bed.

I quickly realized. I was never going to be one of them.

So I developed what I needed-- a little bit of ELBOW ROOM. I didn't "get organized."
I just got less!
Less stuff, less toys, less to do on my schedule. LESS! Oh, and some smiles for the messy days.

I developed SYSTEMS for our house so that I could still be IMPERFECT and not get buried by CHAOS.

My desire is to SHINE a LIGHT so you can be inspired to create WIDE OPEN SPACES in your home and schedule. I would love you to leave this website feeling empowered to EDIT each room, drawer, and shelf until each belonging in your home
SINGS TO YOUR SOUL.

My wish for you is that your schedule would reflect the pages of a book you LONG TO LIVE IN.
NO MORE BAKING COOKIES UNTIL 3 AM
just so other moms can think we "Have it altogether." There IS NO altogether.

I have so many ways we can work together to achieve that.

c'mon, let's do it.

here's your NUDGE!

I am a mother, writer, and self taught organizational coach who you may or may not find slightly less annoying than other mommy bloggers.

I write about clearing out clutter, creating boundaries, and loving crabby people.
If you read my blog, you might just find yourself with a full trash bag ready for the thrift store, on the phone saying no to that annoying mom from the PTO, and ready to use your first jar of Mod Podge.
