The BrightNest website is an endless source of tips and ticks and hacks to make your life easier/more organised/more beautiful.

That said, after 5 minutes on the website, I had found plenty of treasure posts, to name only a few: “Get crafty with chalkboard paint” (aren’t you obsessed with chalkboard paint too?), “Pest control: spiders” (don’t tell me you like spiders) or “Clean your dishwasher” (yes, mine tends to stink too).
