My title

Simplify + Organize.

If you could describe your life in one word, what would it be?

Chaotic? Crazy? Fast-paced? Messy? Hot-mess Express?

Whether you are looking for inspiration on how to finally get your finances on track with a budget, live more frugally and save money, or are just looking for tips to simplify your life– you are in the right place!

Since you’re here, that tells me you want  to take control of your life and finances, but maybe you…

  • Don’t know where to start.
  • Need help knowing what to do next to get ahead.
  • Feel alone in your journey. Everyone else has their Pinterest-esque spreadsheets, charts, schedules, homes— and that’s not you.

Wherever you are right now in life, you want more.

You want simpler.

You want organized.

You want to stress less, have a clear picture of what’s ahead and free up your time from the mundane to spend it on what matters–your family. I hear you, friend!

My name is Kristen and I am obsessed with helping you simplify and organize your life and finances to get you on track to a life you love and love to live!

Marriage and motherhood have been an absolute refining process. And while I’m constantly being refined. It hasn’t defined me.

I am constantly learning, studying, and course correcting my crazy life!

I want to show you that budgeting isn’t scary,  share tips on how to save you money every month, and how to tame the chaos in your life.

Mom Managing Chaos

Who am I?

Back in 2004, I graduated with a Business degree and married the love of my life– jumping straight into what has been a crazy, beautiful ride.

We have three sass-for-days girls who keep us on our toes and make us laugh everyday.

We’ve lived in every time zone, the United States has to offer and overseas a few times. At last count we were up to 11 moves in 15 years!

I love coffee and good pasta (not necessarily together– because that sounds weird!), dance parties and movie nights, sunny days and roadtrips, old hymns and Fixer Upper, my big crazy family and sarcastic friends, sweater weather and pie!

I am obsessed with Google Calendar and spreadsheets. I love making schedules and developing systems to streamline processes (in another life, I would have been a Project Manager!). I am always on the lookout to tweak and make improvements.

I’m a front loader from way back– working hard to get $#^* done, so I can sit back and enjoy my life.

With over ten years of experience creating budgets and spreadsheets, coming up with creative ways to save money (wherever we happen to be living at the time) and my obsession with refining processes, I would love to share with you all the amazing things I’ve learned, as well as tips and tricks I’ve picked up along the way.
