Simple Manly Gift Wrap

My life has been very hurried lately. I am barely getting through each day’s tasks, and feel like I have no energy or time to get ahead!

Brad’s birthday sneaked up on me very quickly, so in a hurry I grabbed the only wrapping paper I had that looked remotely masculine and started wrapping in a frenzy…

It actually turned out looking a lot better than what I thought it was going to, thanks to a few on-hand neutral wrapping supplies (wrapping paper from Target, twine from Paper Source).

I still have to learn that sometimes you have to take each day as it comes, and keeping it simple is always the best approach!

Do you have any tips on keeping your household and life simple? We’d love to hear…

    Your experience is good evidence that you have already empowered yourself to stop and choose balance. Life balance is elusive but worth the effort. Simplification does not require sacrificing quality. It requires creative thinking. You can still achieve your goal, but in a more tailored, refined way. After all, just look at your result! Simplification, but with real style!!
