Do you have any top 3 tips that can help out us moms to keeps us organized?
The tips I will share are the tips I learned from my organizing degree and it is easy to remember. The 3 M’s
Minimize, Maximize and Maintain!
Minimize the clutter- the most important concepts in organization is the idea that, to be organized, you must minimize the stuff, or things in any space. Donate the clothes that you haven’t worn in months. Throw away the broken ornament that you said you will fix it, and now Christmas is here and you still haven’t fix it.
You must learn on how to Maximize the space and take advantage of the space available. In every room, you have to think on what is the purpose of the room.
The third concept is to Maintain the order. Once you have a system in place, you have to maintain it and continue to purge the things that you don’t need.
What made you decide to raise your family here?
I was born and raised in the Philippines, my husband and I decided to live in Michigan since his parents are here. We really love Michigan. We have been to many states and some countries, but we really love the geography, weather and culture in Michigan. We love living in Troy because of the cultural diversity, family friendliness and excellent education.
What’s your favorite family activities? With the holidays coming up, do you have any holiday must see attractions around town?
We love traveling and seeing places near or far. One of our family traditions during the Christmas season is going to Frankenmuth and shopping at Birch Run and Bronner’s.
Where are your favorite places around town with your kids?
There are many places we really enjoy around town, but our favorite is Detroit Riverwalk. We love going there during summer weekend mornings to walk and just enjoy the amenities and views.
What do you do to balance your own life and motherhood? What do you do for “me” time? Juggling your own business and kids is always hard work.
I go to nail salon once a month and whenever I have time I watch Netflix and I also talk to my sisters in the Philippines everyday.
