Hi, my name is Julie. Welcome to Filling the Jars!

This is where I inspire you — the overwhelmed overthinker — to declutter, to live intentionally, and to Build Your Best Life. Learn to simplify, organize, get things DONE, and create opportunities for a better life and income.

How can I help you Build Your Best Life? If you want to improve the way your home functions, better your finances through budgeting and/or increased income, and create a simpler life where you can have more meaningful relationships with your family and follow your dreams, then let’s make it happen! You can always email me at [email protected] and ask me questions or let me know what you need help with.

A little about me:

I’m a 40-something woman with a hard-working husband, a son getting ready to finish college, and a teenage son still at home and attending high school.

No girl drama in this house! Even the cat and the dog are males!

I’ve worked at a few different jobs in my life, including being a stay-at-home-mom for nearly a decade. More recently, I was employed full-time outside the home for several years as an elementary school secretary.

After plenty of hard work to make my dreams a reality, I fully appreciate now working from home as a full-time author and blogger.

With that sort of history, you could say I know a few things about multi-tasking. But my passion is to SIMPLIFY and remove the overwhelm to allow for intentional focus and a peaceful home. 

As I work through improving areas of my life such as decluttering and changing my career path, I love sharing what I’ve learned and helping you find similar success. Actually, I would be beyond thrilled if you took my suggestions and do even BETTER than I have!
