Have you ever been on a blind date and by the end of it, you started a business and opened-up several bank account together? Just us? Cool.

Turns out we are the kind of crazy people who do things like that. You know why? Neither do we. But it turned out totally fine so do not be concerned. Also, what are the odds of meeting another hot mess express who somehow also has the same singular organizing talent? It must be a very small pool of people.

Even though we have a lot in common, we also have our differences. It’s what inspired us to dress up like each other for Halloween this year. Although, we’re still trying to decide how “in-character” we’re both willing to get. If so, it looks like I’m eating all of my kid’s Halloween candy and Joanna is drinking a lot of champagne.

In honor of our costume idea, we decided to construct a very scientific quiz that tells you who you’re the most like: Clea or Joanna. Spoiler alert: Both results will show you are crazy. Just…. different sides of the same psychotic coin.

Question #1- Your child comes home from school with a homemade Mother’s Day card AND THEY USED GLITTER. What do you do?

A - Pull the alarm to activate the Operation Glitter crisis plan you had in place, complete with a HAZMAT suit that drops down from a trap door in the ceiling so you can safely evacuate the home before burning it down.


B - Smile and thank them with a big hug, while simultaneously pulling a mini vacuum out of your back pocket.

Question #2: It’s 7pm on a Wednesday night, where are you?

A - Locked in the bathroom, scrolling through Instagram with a glass of champagne until the kids are asleep.


B - Already laying completely flat in bed with pajamas on, a bag of candy, and maybe a cup of decaf tea if it’s going to be a late night.

Question #3: You’re about to spend the entire day with Roberta. What’s on the itinerary?

A - Looking at new swatches of wallpaper, fabrics, and furniture selections for the house. She’s been keeping a file to show you so sit down and get comfortable.


B - Looking at new swatches of wallpaper, fabrics, and furniture selections for the house. She’s been keeping a file to show you so sit down and get comfortable.

Question #4: An hour into a flight, the pilot asks the flight attendants to take their seats. How do you prepare for turbulence, or impending death?

A - Rush to the front and beg for two mini bottles of champagne and promise to be good.


B - Furiously push the call attendant button and ask them if they think it’s going to be really bad while nervously eating handfuls of Swedish Fish.

Question #5: What motto best describes you?

A - Caffeine Until Cocktail Hour.


B - Roberta Approved.

If you answered mostly A:


A total H.B.I.C (Head Bitch in Charge). You don’t ask for much, only that your coffee must match PANTONE 15-1040. It’s that simple.

Tip 1: Stock Up on Healthy Staples

If you want to start eating healthier, you obviously need to stock your fridge with healthy food. It helps to create a list of core staples to have on hand at all times. This takes the guesswork out of grocery shopping, and you’ll feel more prepared during meal and snack time. 

Tip 2: Edit, Edit, Edit

When it comes to actually organizing your fridge, don’t skip the editing process. Even if you don’t feel like it, start by removing every single item from your fridge until it’s completely empty. We suggest keeping a trash bag nearby and tossing anything expired as you go. And since your fridge shelves are probably due for a deep clean, here’s your chance to actually get in there and wipe off that weird sticky layer! 

Tip 3: Create Zones

Every category should live in a designated zone (location) and preferably, within a contained and visible home (clear product). This allows everything to be accessible, accounted for, and aesthetically pleasing...while also maximizing shelf space.

Tip 4: Label It

Labeling isn’t just the finishing touch, it’s actually the secret sauce of the system. Labels are really just straightforward directions for where items go. They concretely identify the contents that live in each container. It not only helps *you* maintain the system, but it holds your kids, your partner, and anyone else using the space, too. 

*Reminder: Think broad, not specific when labeling your categories. It should be a simple road map that’s flexible enough for the occasional outlier. 

Tip 5: Freeze It

Your freezer is valuable real estate in your fridge set up, so clear out those old popsicles and spilled frozen peas to make room for favorites your family will actually eat. We're looking at you last minute meals.

We love using our Freezer Bins to contain the chaos amongst the frozen pizzas and kids snacks. Organizing this space will take the dread out of opening this often-forgotten area, we promise!
