Invest in Storage

Closet organizing systems are worth every penny. Otherwise, you have a rod, shelf, and wasted space up top.

Buy “New and Improved”

Look for stainless steel appliances treated to minimize smudges and stain-resistant countertops like CaesarStone.

Mix It Up

I like using a loveseat at the dining table. It makes it look less like a conference room.
