sorted. blog

I am not a natural-born writer but, just like all of us, I have stories to tell.

I created the sorted. blog as a space to share my journey: the trials, triumphs, and reality of maintaining order in a world of constant activity and change. My hope is to inspire others, through my musings on organizing, minimalism, and mindfulness, to believe (as I do) that making changes in our physical and mental space and forming new habits around these changes magnifies the greater purpose of our lives.
