Road Tripping – An Organized Vehicle

This post contains affiliate links, so you can find these great products on Amazon.    

Heading out on a road trip can be a fun adventure, but it often requires planning and organization. I have put together some ideas to help keep your vehicle organized and functioning for everyone in the family, including your dog (if you have one). All of these items are things that can remain in your car, for easy access. Most are compact or collapsable. (more…)

My Uncluttered Home-The Bathroom Part 2


You are invited to join me as I de-clutter my home and create a more manageable and peaceful space for myself and my family. I am tired of the years of clutter, hanging onto "stuff" because I may use it someday, and keeping items that have memories attached.

*Kaos Solutions sponsored this post, but all thoughts and experiences are my own. Thank you for supporting the brands that make Everything Unscripted possible.

It is time to move it all to donate, sell or put in the garbage!

If you think this is easy, trust me, it is not. Here is my first post in the series, sharing my anxiety and feeling the firs day while I shared my home (behind all the closed doors) with Kim from Kaos Solutions. To see Part 1 of my bathroom de-clutter, check here.

So, here is the funny thing...the worst drawer in my vanity was my "make up" drawer. But I wear makeup maybe 2 or 3 times a week, so you would think I would not have much! Well, there was alot more than makeup in the drawer, and that is part of the problem. Here is the before, during and after of that purge.

Part of the frustration and clutter in the drawer was the baskets sitting across the drawer. They balanced on the edges, leaving a small space below the basket. When items slipped under, it would raise the baskets and jam the drawer. So, as you can see below, I put them in sitting on the bottom of the drawer now. 

Oh My Goodness!! All the stuff in this drawer I didn't even know was there. Over time the earrings and jewelry piled up, band aids and other junk.  


Get Organized

It seems like no matter how much I clean and try to reduce the "stuff" in our house, I always end up side tracked and never finish. As a work at home mom, there is someone home 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The house is always messy and clutter piles up or gets shifted and moved from room to room. Do you know what I mean? When is it ever tidy and clean for more than 5 minutes?

In January 2018, I asked for help from a professional organiser, and I am sharing this journey with you!

You can follow along with our series called "My Uncluttered Home".  As we de-clutter the house, we will also share storage and organising hacks to help you stay organised and tidy in your home.

My Uncluttered Home – Day 1

My Uncluttered Home - Day 1

On Tuesday, Kim from Kaos Solutions, arrived at my home at 9am. I was anxious and stressed at the idea of opening closets, cupboards and my office and storage room doors....truly stressed at the thought of someone seeing all my "hidden" clutter. Here is a video (more…)

My Journey – Living Healthier

My Healthy Journey - the ups, the downs and living the lifestyle!

My Health Journey started in July 2016 when I had just had enough. Over the years I had gained weight, 10 pounds here and 5 pounds there. In July I weighed 250lb, around what I was when I had my first baby. Over the last 14 years I was up and down between 210lbs and 230lbs. The jump to 250 happened over the winter of 2016 and I could feel it.

My first steps to take were small, changing little things here and there. Each week I feel better, the weight is slowly coming off, which is how I want it. It took a long time to gain, so I am not expecting an overnight weight loss. I am using no gimmicks, eating real food, drinking lots of water and trying to add more exercise to my life.

Through sharing this journey I am hoping to accomplish two things:
  1. I hope through reading my blog, this inspires even one person to make positive healthy changes for themselves.
  2. By sharing publicly what I am doing, I feel more accountable to myself to continue and move toward my goal.

Here is my journey unfolding:

Travel Tuesday Tip – Protecting Electronics in Winter

Keep Your Electronics Warm

Winter is here and it's cold! So let's talk about what this does to your electronics, cellphones, tablets, cameras, etc...

When hiking, snowshoeing, skiing or enjoying other outdoor activities, we all like to have our cameras or cellphones on hand to preserve the memories. Have you ever noticed your devices acting sluggish, or the battery draining quicker than normal? Here are some tips to help with common cold weather problems you may encounter.


Cold weather drains your batteries quicker and therefore can lead to safety issues and disappointment.  (more…)

Cuso International ~ Helping Mothers & Babies Around The Globe

This post is sponsored as part of a partnership with Cuso International. As always, all opinions are my own.

This time 5 years ago, I was awaiting the arrival of Clayton. His due date was Dec 25th, 2012. My pregnancy had been amazing, as was my pregnancy with my oldest boy, 9 1/2 years earlier. Honestly, the only fear I had going into the week he was due, was hoping for good weather. Guess what!?!  He arrived late, on December 30th, in the middle of a snow storm! Our neighbour helped dig us out, flagged down a plow and the city plow helped us get to the main road. We arrived at the hospital with only minutes to spare, he was born 20 minutes after arriving.

Here in Canada, we’re fortunate to have access to amazing facilities, doctors, midwives and other health professionals.  Mother's in other parts of the World are not so lucky.

In countries like Ethiopia, that isn’t always the case. In Pawe, a small community in rural Ethiopia, mothers like Abeba have their babies in health centres that aren’t equipped for unexpected circumstances. Simple challenges that seem like a small hiccup in the labour process here, can lead to tragedy. The health professionals don’t always have specialized training, and infection and life threatening complications are common.
