Efficiency & Simplicity
Given the time constraints on all of us, I try to use clear, reliable systems - without a lot of moving pieces or potential for confusion.
I believe that the only way to help others (and even ourselves!) is through honesty and transparency. I will not lie to you about "quick and easy" solutions or "hacks". Most of homemaking - especially building long-term habits - is hard work and requires intention. But I will absolutely be here to make that work as easy to implement as possible and find ways to work smarter, not harder.
We’re all humans, not robots. Unattainable goals and perfectionistic standards are counterproductive, demotivating, and – ultimately – unkind. Though it is sometimes an uphill battle for me, I choose to focus on achieving what is good-enough and functional, and always celebrate progress.
Solutions are only as good as how long they last. I develop my own personal systems and any I share at Our Home on Purpose in the context of long-term habits, healthy mindsets, and the ability to adapt to life’s changes.
