It’s a new decade—Lighten Up!!!
The energy of 2020, a Universal 4 Year in numerology, thrusts us into the light of an extraordinary  year!   In 2020 we will celebrate a Leap Year, the Year of the Rat, and the UN’s year of Plant Health….2020 will also be a year of  Accomplishments and Achieving Goals  especially related to home, family, peace and practical solutions. 

What would you like to have happen in your life this year? What decisions would you like to make? Is it time to simplify and make a change where you live? Imagine the possibilities….

Whatever lights your imagination, our Diva wish for you is… a SIMPLY fabulous 2020!

Simply yours,

Maybe you are hesitating to simplify your life because you are overwhelmed and don't know where to begin. Time for The DIVA Dozen!

12 Tasks that you can complete in 20 minutes or less:

  • Clean your cutlery drawer. Toss anything that is rusty, broken or totally useless!

  • Remove everything from the cabinet under your sink. Sort, purge and replace.

  • Organize the top shelf in your front hall closet.

  • Edit your coffee mug collection. Keep only the ones you love to use!

  • Be ruthless with your bath towels. Donate frayed or discoloured towels to the Humane Society or local Animal Shelter.

Downsizing is easier if done in baby steps.
