Hello! My name is Tina. I started this blog because I believe I’m not the only organizationally challenged person out there whose dream it is to be neat. I also believe I’m not the only person pinching pennies these days who has higher budgetary priorities than buying doo-dads to organize the cabinets. Yet the reality is that organization can relieve stress and make busy folks more productive. (And I am one busy folk!) I am convinced I can have a neat and practical home for little money and this is my journey to achieve just that. I come from creative stock -- my mother is an artist and I have inherited her eye for beautiful things. I have a love for all things organizational and there is nothing more beautiful to me than a neat and organized space. However, I also live in a home with a husband, two kids, three dogs and I work full time at a fast paced job with a long commute. I have a large family with lots of nieces and nephews so family gatherings are often and many (and LOUD! :}) so I don’t have a lot of time to work on cleaning or organizing. Or so this has been my excuse for my “practically” neat life. But no more – I have decided to make neatness a priority and I’m convinced I can do it in a way that fits my life; a.k.a. practically. I hope you visit often and share your journey to practical neatness with me as well. Visit often and update me on your progress. Tina
