Welcome to the Small Stuff Counts!

I help moms make home life easier so they can create beautiful, organized, and thriving homes.

Through practical organizing ideas, real-life homemaking solutions, and doable decorating/DIY projects, my goal is to empower you to create a home you love.

A Little About Me

I live in the suburbs of Des Moines, Iowa, with my husband, David, and our two kids, Chloe and Logan.

I’m a major homebody and obsessed with all things organizing. When I’m not at my marketing job, you’ll often find me organizing a cabinet, decluttering a corner or deep cleaning the sink just for fun.

I’m a beginner DIYer on a mission to banish the beige from our builder-basic home and while I don’t always know what I’m doing, I love sharing my wins and fails with you.

What this Blog is All About

My blog is filled with hundreds of project tutorials and quick tips to make your house a home, one small project at a time. 

I don’t believe in overnight room makeovers or over-complicated cleaning routines. Instead, I love making little by little progress through simple systems and quick projects that are attainable for busy moms.
