Welcome to A Bowl Full of Lemons.

A Bowl Full of Lemons sole purpose is to bring together a "community" of like minded individuals - who seek a life of "order". Within this site, you will find an array of home management topics such as organizing, cleaning, budgeting, planning, & preparedness. Sometimes life gets so busy that we become overwhelmed and don't know how to get back on track again. I am no exception. I play many roles in my day to day life:  Wife, mother, Registered Nurse, lifestyle photographer and blogger. I have the same struggles as you, and I am here to share what has worked for me. My goal is to help you achieve order within your busy lives. I have been blessed to share my creative ideas with my growing number of fans for the past 4 years. I hope to inspire you to find balance and to create an environment of peace and order. Whether it's cleaning up your finances & getting on a budget that works or setting up a system of organization within your home, I am here to help guide you. I’m grateful to be able to use this platform to teach you how to get your life organized. ~ Toni
