You must declutter before throwing a big bash. Why you might ask? Well, your guests will think you're awesome. And it will take the stress out of party prep. I promise.

This week, I'm sharing a checklist to get it done on Jentertaining, a home entertaining blog started by NYC event guru, Jen.

Organizing Obsession: Handy Manual Shredder

Let’s imagine a dream world where your paper is totally under control. No scary stash in a shopping bag in the back of your closet screaming, “Shred me, shred me!” In this dream world, the only shredding you do on a daily basis is the incoming mail and random odds and ends. 

First, let me just say this can be a reality with a little Urban Simplicity. Call me maybe. 

And once it’s all organized, I am obsessed with this handy manual shredder to keep you in check. Unlike most shredders, it’s so cute and sleek.

It’s temporarily out of stock on the very cool website, Poketo. But I found it on Horne. Grey or white, that is the question.

Organizing Obsession: Serena & Lily Pandan Bins


Have I mentioned my ongoing quest for stylish bins? I've searched high and low for bins in the perfect size and shape to fit a clients' shelf. It's no easy task. And finding a bin that looks good, well, that can be even more impossible.

When I came across these classic square bins from Serena & Lily, I was sold. They come in so many colors plus a nice neutral tan.

And much like chevron, I am pretty much obsessed with anything metallic. Yes, they come in silver. Get excited, people!
