We’re on holidays

Greetings from Greece holidays

We’re taking this week off to catch up with friends and family, enjoy the cooler temperatures and eat plenty of delicious food.

We’ll be back with our latest organising tips focusing on YOU next Monday again. Some of you have emailed us, looking for tips on meal planning, paper clutter and managing a busy calendar. Expect these and many more topics to come in the following weeks.

If you like us to focus on certain areas to make your life easier, drop us a note.

Until next week,
Agni

What do you want to do this summer?

How will you spend this summer?

But has that stopped you from thinking what to do this summer? With Ramadan being early, we’ll have almost 4 months of summer! Why not start thinking about your summer plans this weekend?
