Just last year, I made the decision to downsize…a lot. We’re talking the transition from a 3,500-square-foot home to a 40-foot motorhome overnight. At about the same time, I realized I could only maintain my standards of organization if I went totally paperless.
That’s where Next Issue came in. I’m an avid reader, and often contribute cleaning and decluttering tips to some of my favorite magazines (don’t miss my advice on laundry detergent in the August 2014 issue of Real Simple, “Taking Control of the Laundry!”). I’m so happy to always have the latest issues always downloaded to my tablet—perfect for life on the open road.
I hope you enjoy my picks on living large in a small space and saving those extra bucks around the house, along with picks on my other favorite hobby, whipping up new recipes whenever I get the chance.
