We got married in 1991 and it is 21 years since we moved into our very own new home. At the time, we had no children and, amongst our friends, we were the only married couple. Being ‘Frum’ was relatively new to our Jewish community. First we lived in a beautiful, large 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, flat in Berea but my husband did the Torah … Continue reading What happened to my house?ME
Once again I am on assignment, to improve my blogging skills and make your reading experience better. Assignment number 4 was to write a blog to our ideal reader and include a new element.

This is a long blog post. I felt that it was necessary to reintroduce myself to everyone. I wrote and published the first Kasheringyourlife blog on the 28 June 2015 and already 5 weeks later I have over 180 followers (thank you all). I read a blog about blogging and in it they said that people need to know why I am doing this blog … Continue reading Do you know me?

My question is this; if you have help do you think your house is actually clean? I mean, how … Continue reading Cleaning up your schedule or scheduling your clean up!
As part of my mission to declutter, I read blogs about decluttering, downsizing, minimizing, purging and the lingo that goes with cleaning up the mess that has taken up residence in my home over the last 20 years. Now I am following (sort of) the 15 minute a day method. It is a very good method and is working well for me on the days … Continue reading The Konmari method of Cleaning your space.
On my Facebook page ,Kashering Your Life, I have posted my new decluttering project. My bead room! I make and sell jewellery, as well as teach a jewellery class once a week. A couple of months ago I moved my work area to another location in my house and just never unpacked it all properly. I have tons of beads and just about all the … Continue reading Where do I begin?
Today I am talking about, organising and decluttering your home. We have lived in our house for 20 years, and over this time we have accumulated a ton of junk. We hoard! For instance, I only just got rid of the baby stuff, although I still have the double pram, as it is missing its crossbar. Please note, my baby is 11 years old and … Continue reading Cutting through the Clutter
