There are several things I wanted to accomplish when I started this website.
Originally, I was looking around for organizing/crafting blogs, and couldn't find any that had everything I was looking for. So I thought that it was quite possible, that other people were having that problem as well.
I started it before I was actually moved out, with the idea that I was going to be a picture perfect housewife, and all I would have to do is take pictures of my wonderful life and post about it. But now that I realize that isn't even possible, I have some new goals around my house and I'd like to use this blog to help me stick to them.
1. I want to make everything be used to the best of its potential.
I live in an itty bitty apartment. Like, if I showed you my kitchen you'd probably cry, I know I want to. So getting everything used to its potential is so important because I only have a limited amount of room for everything in my home.
This really involves me getting really creative, because unlike home-owners, I can't make any permanent changes to the apartment. I can't change the cabinets, add shelving, or do anything that would essentially make my life easier. It's all about the temporary for me. Which makes things a lot trickier and that much more necessary.
2. I want everything to look like a real home.
I'm only 21 years old, yet I have the life of a thirty year old: a baby, a husband, a home to take care of. I have a hard enough time getting taken seriously with all of these things going on for me, and I don't want a poorly kept home to validate people's judgements. I would much rather impress people by having a "homey" home, instead of "yeah, this looks like a 20 year old's apartment."
3. I want things to run as smoothly as possible.
With a baby, I have very limited time to do the things I wanna do. So when I do have time to clean or cook, I'd like it all to run smoothly so I can get it done quickly and have time to do the things I would enjoy, like more organizing, playing on the computer, or reading.
4. I want to start living a healthier lifestyle.
I have been very big on take-out in the past. And when I have cooked, I thought you always had to have a meat portion for protein. Recently I learned about how much healthier it is to live a vegetarian/vegan lifestyle. And I already knew it was much healthier to cook yourself as opposed to getting fast food. But I need a way to organize recipes we like and recipes we didn't like. I'm hoping this blog will help that.
