Fun and informative
I love this concept! Fun way to provide helpful information. Delicious recipes also!
Love everything about this!
I just recently started listening to Christy after launching my own personal organizing business & a fellow organizer suggested her podcast. Everything she says is real & practical advice. Things we all struggle with regardless if we are naturally organized or not. Plus the cocktails! Pure genius!!! I can only say, wish I had thought of that first 😂! You go Christy, this is great!
So Helpful and Fun!
I always find something useful and very easy to implement to help keep my home and my family running as smoothly as possible! With two kiddos of her own she totally gets us moms. She helps make our lives a little less hectic so that we can focus on the important things with our family's. Love her fun approach and keeping it all very real and practical!
