Introducing: Manage Your Life on Shine

We've combined work, money, and home on Shine because the boundaries between them often overlap, don't they? Many of us are working from home at least part of the time, and we've set up home offices in a spare bedroom or at the kitchen table. While we're at work, we often carve out a few minutes from breaks to tend to the details of the other parts of our lives so we're not up 'til 2 a.m. getting everything we need to done.

We've learned quite a few things since launching Shine a year ago. One thing is this: While most of us would love to have the time to pore through photos of beautifully decorated rooms and unique items for the home, the truth is we often go online in search of solutions. And we don't have a lot of time to find them. So Manage Your Life is all about sharing advice, tips and tricks for getting organized at work and at home, tending personal finances, finding deals for the home and travel away from home, and for tackling DIY home projects even the least handy of us can do.

That's why Manage Your Life will be big on solutions for our everyday challenges - squeezing as much as possible out of a weekly food budget, cleaning when we don't have time (or the desire) to clean, trying new ways to get more done in less time on the job, or finding a job in one of the scariest job markets in memory.

Look for posts on unique ways to save money in uncertain times, for decorating on a tight budget, and for getting (and staying) organized in every corner of our busy lives. Mostly, look for each other to share what's working in our lives, what's not, and how we try, every day, to do the best we can in the many roles we play.

Together, we can manage anything.
