We cover how to hide media cords (Ashley is super pro at this), how to handle paper clutter, good resources for plant care, how to live with pets and not have unattractive pet stuff all around, the right way to paint over wallpaper (like we had to do in this house!!). There are a LOT of good tips in this episode!
