How To Stay Organized In A Small House

Welcome Back Boo,

Happy Tuesday!

With the cost of housing on the rise, it’s difficult to afford a big house unless you’re earning a lot of money. That means a lot of us end up living in places that are a bit smaller than we would ideally like to. When you’re living in a small house it can be difficult to keep the place clean and organized and before you know it, it can get incredibly cramped. But living in a small house can actually be of benefit because it forces you to live a more reserved, and often cheaper, lifestyle. You just need to follow these tips to help keep things organized.

How to survive the World Cup

Welcome Back Boo,

I hope you are well!

The Football World Cup has arrived, and that can only mean one thing, you will come across people who can’t get enough of it, and you will have people who wish it would end tomorrow, no, right now. For those who are part of the former group: enjoy; for the latter group: there is help. Let’s face it, it’s not going to go away until the home team gets knocked out, and even then, people will still be going on about it until the final whistle of the last match (which is on the 15th of July). So unless you managed to squirrel away four weeks of annual leave and have booked a flight to somewhere that is entirely unaffected by the world’s most popular sport, you would have to make some life-altering changes to your life and attitude. Here are a few to consider. Continue reading

The Big Summer Clean

Image Credit

As Spring has now been and gone, the question is did you manage to have a good old fashioned Spring Clean or was it something you kept putting off.  If that sounds like you, then don’t worry, there’s no reason a traditional spring clean is limited to the season of Spring, indeed a big summer clean might be just what we all need.

There have been copious studies that link having a tidy home with a tidy mind; indeed, it is now scientifically proven that a cluttered house contributes to a cluttered mind which is why it’s so important to keep on top of our homes, and not just from the perspective of keeping it tidy and organised; there are a number of jobs that are kept on the backburner, waiting to get done, but they are forever on the to-do list.

The best way to break free from this wretched to-do list that has probably been haunting you for months if not years, is to pull it off like a plaster and just have a day, week, or month where you commit to sorting out everything on that list, and afterall, somethings might be as simple as visiting to get a new security alarm fitted or as quick and easy as washing the windows which takes only a few minutes, or you could outsource for not much money at all.

This article provides a five step plan to help you organise your spring clean, or summer clean, as the case may now be.


The all important step of decluttering, which is at the base of the process, naturally leads onto the next phase of ‘getting organised’.  Decluttering your home is indeed a natural precursor to getting organised; for it’s almost impossible to be organised when there is clutter everywhere.


Your sense of emotional stability is closely linked to the feeling of stability and order you feel within your home life.  Now that you’ve decluttered your home, you need to get organised, which might sound like it’s going to take forever, but the time investment will pay off as it will make your life a lot easier in the long term.


Whether it’s removing the internal clutter from your house or removing garden waste it can take a amount of time and effort if you do it yourself.  In the alternative, you could pay someone else to do it, or if you want to save some money, then hire a van for a day or two and use this to cart your rubbish away.


Cleaning your home can be cathartic as this process will cleanse the energy and emotion stored within your home, which can  be a very soothing experience.


Now that your home is clear of clutter, better organised, and much fresher, it’s time to renew certain aspects, such as wallpaper, or the carpet,

that both might have become worn out over time.

Remember to keep on slaying,

See you next time xoxo

3 Reasons Why You Should Never Neglect The Exterior Of Your Home

Welcome Back Boo,

I hope you are all well this Tuesday!

If you’ve been considering revamping the look of your home recently, the outside of your property might have been last on your list of possible renovation projects. Even though the paint is peeling from your rendering, a hinge has broken off the door frame, and the tiles on the roof look more like a patchwork quilt, you are still more enamoured with tackling your kitchen, bathroom or living space.

However, you shouldn’t neglect the exterior of your home; this is what generates the curb appeal of your pad, turns heads and is the first thing people see as they walk up your drive. Take a look at these reasons why you should forget about the interior design and focus your efforts on the exterior.
