What I'm Loving: November Edition!

Hello friends!

It’s been a long time since I shared a blog post like this!

So, without further ado, welcome to the November edition of what I’m loving this month!

My Top 3 Time Blocks

I’m a huge proponent of time blocking (or time batching). After I wrote this post I received so many questions and comments regarding what goes into specific time blocks, that I thought I would jot down my thoughts to share with you today! These time blocks can be slotted into every day, every couple of days, once a week or once a month!

Stocking Stuffer Ideas: A Community Collaboration!

When I posed the question “What’s your favorite stocking filler at Christmas” on Instagram stories I did not expect such a massive response from the ‘Organized Life’ Community! Originally, I was going to share all these ideas on an Instagram story, however it seemed to me that all of these wonderful ideas needed to be saved in an accessible place so everyone could access it. Thank you to everyone that emailed in to answer my question! The result is an extremely comprehensive list of ideas for stocking stuffers and small gifts! Enjoy!

Our Fall Family Bucket List!

Our list includes a mixture of things we’ve done and loved, along with experiences we’ve never had before!

Disneyland and California Adventure With Kids Done Smart and Cheap!

When I first asked the Organized Life community for their tips on how to do Disney Land, I received some incredible responses! One of the best was from the wonderful Daisy Phillips.
