All opinions are mine alone. #DesignedMega #CollectiveBias We just moved into a new house, and that means organizing!  As much as I dislike packing and unpacking, I LOVE the fresh start that comes from a new home, the purging, and the reorganizing.  And then I remember, my two “organizationally challenged” teenage boys share a bathroom in our new home.  Suddenly the word “organize” takes on a whole new meaning. {Read More}
