    Organizing Your Estate & Riesling-Campari Cocktails

    Organizing Your Estate & Riesling-Campari Cocktails

    If something were to happen to you today, does your partner know your wishes? Do they know where important papers are? Do you have a plan for your kids and your money? Aye-yi-yi...yes, mamas! We are going deep this week to chat organizing all those areas that make us feel a little uncomfortable. I'm chatting with author Nine Nights: Your New Little Black Book for Personal Financial Empowerment and professional organizer Laurie Teal. Laurie has a mission to make sure couples and women are organized and prepared with the paperwork they need in case of financial emergency, medical emergency, or, to put it simply, death. She wants you to be able to care for or grieve your loved ones instead of trying to track down medical histories or trust documents. And her book will help you arrange it all step-by-step. With all this talk of death and paperwork, you'll definitely need a cocktail...which is why we are having a tasty pitcher cocktail featuring Laurie's favorite wine, the Riesling-Campari cocktail from Food and Wine.

    For links to Laurie, a copy of Laurie's book, today's cocktail recipe or to explore past episodes, visit our show notes at podcast.cocktailsandcontainers.com. Search for the Episode "Organizing Your Estate."

    Love and Organizing Part 2 & Red Wine Milkshakes

    Minimalism and simplicity coach Rose Lounsbury is back to chat love and organizing in honor of Valentine's Day. This week, Rose and I will discuss how to introduce the idea of decluttering to your family and why it's important to teach your family organizing and decluttering skills. This episode partners perfectly with last week's chat where we discussed how to introduce organizing systems when you and your loved ones don't see eye to eye on decluttering strategies. And we introduce an unlikely and delicious combination...the Red Wine Milkshake from Delish.

    To connect with Rose, get today's cocktail recipe, or search past episodes, visit the show notes at podcast.cocktailsandcontainers.com. Search for the episode "Love and Organizing Part 2".

    Love and Organizing Part 1 & Strawberry Mint Gin Fizz

    Love and Organizing Part 1 & Strawberry Mint Gin Fizz

    In honor Valentine's Day, I'm addressing love and organizing in two episodes with my good friend, minimalism and simplicity coach Rose Lounsbury. For part 1 of our discussion, Rose and I are talking about organizing and decluttering when you and your partner see clutter differently. We hear how Rose and her husband reacted when she started her minimalism "hobby", how to approach a conversation about organizing with your loved one, and how to deal if one of you is an "outie" and one of you is an "innie". And we include a recipe for a delicious Valentine's inspired Strawberry Mint Gin Fizz.

    To connect with Rose, get today's cocktails recipe, or check out past episodes, visit the show notes at podcast.cocktailsandcontainers.com. Search for the episode called "Love and Organizing.'
