In today’s fast-paced world, maintaining an organized living space can feel like an elusive goal. From overflowing closets to cluttered countertops, the chaos can quickly become overwhelming. However, fear not, because help is here! Join me on this segment from Good Day DC where I share budget-friendly organization hacks.

I went to my local Dollar Store to see what I could find. This episode was less than $20 (even though the dollar store is now the $1.25 store – haha). I love joining the team on Good Day DC and had so much fun with Marissa Mitchell and Steven Graddick. Marissa is one of my favorite hosts and it was such a treat to have Steven on this segment. We laughed so hard and had such a fun time. Steven couldn’t believe the rice/vase hack. I give you some tips/hacks for every room of your house.
