In winter, at least here in WNY… we spend a lot of time indoors trying to stay warm. One of my favorite things to do is curl up with a fuzzy blanket and watch a cold movie. There’s just something about being warm and cozy while watching actors survive in a cold setting. I’ve compiled a list of my favorite cold-themed movies for you to check out. There are a variety of great winter movies for kids, as well as adults. The first post in this series covers winter movies that are great to watch with kids and teens!

DIY Home Organization Projects

Keeping your home organized and creatively decorate is one major way to increase happiness. Clutter and unattractive items harness the negative energy you emit when looking at them. Having a disorganized junk drawer or closet is completely normal, but did you know that it can actually dampen your mood? Clutter and disorganization breed stress and frustrations, which every home could do without. We have enough stress in our daily lives, we don’t need to add to it by struggling to find items. Phone chargers, batteries, measuring cups, and take-out menus are commonly used items that rarely have a designated place. A few of the DIY home organization projects I’ve added below will help make your home feel more organized and comforting. These ideas came from Pinterest, so just click the Pin for the full tutorial.
