    March’s Amazon & Target Favs

    Disclaimer: This post uses some affiliate links. They may pay us a commission if you buy something we’ve linked here (at no cost to you). It’s no secret that we’re huge fans of Target & Amazon over here at Jess & Becca. I mean, you don’t give away a 50$ giftcard to Target if you aren’t a big fan. There’s just nothing like cruising the dollar section, iced latte in hand, and finding some adorable item you didn’t know your life was missing. And Amazon is just every mom of littles’ bread and butter. Can you even Mom without Amazon? PLUS, if you sign up for a Target Redcard, you…

    Organizing a Tiny Kitchen

    Disclaimer: This post uses some affiliate links. They may pay us a commission if you buy something we’ve linked here (at no cost to you). When I moved from a house to an apartment, I knew I was downsizing to a smaller kitchen. I don’t think it really hit me how creative I was going to need to be with storage and organization though, until moving day. After everything had been stacked and stuffed in, I took a deep breath. I couldn’t fathom that it would all fit. But, miracle of miracles, it all did. It did take some creative solutions though. If you’re like me, and you’re trying to…

    Rotate Your Toys: Less Stress & More Play.

    Disclaimer: This post uses some affiliate links. They may pay us a commission if you buy something we’ve linked here (at no cost to you). Faced with moving into a much smaller apartment after living for 3 years in an 1800 sq. ft. house (with a huge basement for storage), this January I decided to start the year with a Toy Rotation system. All this means is that I wanted to keep most of his toys packed up and stored away somewhere accessible, and only allow him access to some of his toys at a time. The goal is to periodically rotate out which toys he has access to. Why?…

    Seven Tips For Surviving Your First Round of Whole30

    Several months back, I did my very first round of Whole30. It took me about two read-throughs of the book, a lot of research, and five months of countless excuses “but ____ holiday is coming up”, “my birthday is happening and we’re going somewhere special to eat”, “we’re going on vacation and I don’t want to be restricted” , I’m too busy/tired/bad at cooking, etc”. I could probably fill a book with all of the excuses I had in my head that tried to keep me from setting a start day. Disclaimer: This post uses some affiliate links.

    The Beginner’s Guide to Starting a Capsule Wardrobe

    In real life, (you know, outside the internet) when I say ‘capsule wardrobe’, the reaction I usually get is a furrowing of the brows, maybe a nose crinkle, and “A what?”. Except when I talk to Jessy. Because we just get each other. So, I figured a post about how Kyle and I finally started our own capsule wardrobes this past weekend would need to start with a little explanation. A capsule wardrobe refers to a small wardrobe composed of versatile pieces. The idea comes from minimalism, where less is more. It’s a way to only own a few key pieces that you just adore and mix and match together…
