Welcome to the Rawganized Kitchen Makeover Week 1, where we’re going to make the biggest inroad possible right away by clearing out those cupboards.
Even if you consider yourself to be pretty organised generally, if anywhere is going to need some attention it’s going to be your kitchen cupboards because they are the easiest place to “lose” things, for things to get buried or hidden, and also for things to be stashed – especially the things that you’d rather not have in your kitchen, but you’ve been too afraid to trash.

Every once in a while there comes a point where we want or need to take stock of our lives. Perhaps it’s because of a significant life event that forces our hand, such as a relationship split, a house move, or a redundancy.

Assuming roughly the same figures here, I’ll briefly explain more about what a Vision Board is, how you create one and how you can turn it into a Raw Lifestyle version if that’s where your focus is right now. (Trust me, this is GREAT FUN!) A Vision Board essentially is a pictorial representation on card, paper, wall or board of what you would like to have show up in your world in the next chapter of your life (for this particular activity we’re talking twelve months). It … Continue reading
