With a lifelong knack for thinking outside the box, Jaime McKee is our go-to for creative ways to repurpose our belongings. Her blog Building a Sustainable Life is filled with great ideas to stretch the dollar and life of home decor accessories.

In the modern Pinterest era, DIY ideas for weddings abound. But as we all know, it can be far too easy to get caught up in the excitement of the big day, and when our wishlists outperform our budgets (or our spare time to work on projects!) it’s easy to become overwhelmed with ideas, spoiled for choice, or simply unsure of where to start. By asking some of our DIY projects to do double duty—serving as wedding décor that can later be repurposed into home décor—we can save a bit of money and create meaningful, useful items to fill our homes and remind us of that special day for years to come

With smartphone ownership reaching critical mass, organizing even the most basic of things usually involves your phone. For the first time ever, over 50% of the US population now owns a smartphone.

We’ve put together the top six wedding apps for the techie bride-to-be

What’s it like to plan your own wedding on the DIY, local, personal-touch tip? When it came to my wife and I getting married, it was very much a team effort. We made lists, assigned duties, shared Google Doc spreadsheets and did a whole lot of running around.

Very soon after Jessica and I got engaged, we knew right away that we wanted our wedding to be a true reflection of us and our relationship. Sure, you might think that goes without saying, but it actually requires effort. You can easily flip pages and pick the best, well-reviewed, mid-priced vendors and call it a day. You’d most likely be perfectly pleased with the results and it would definitely save a lot of time and headaches. However, I’d say that doing stuff yourself does indeed become worth while and offers a very particular gratification making everything all the more memorable

Traveling in style is just not my thing. I wear sweatpants, running shoes and my favorite hoodie. It’s the Californian in me really. Comfort over style every day, every time. But we’ve all seen those drool-worthy jetsetters that make you want to get up that extra hour before your 6am flight to get done up. I’m not sure I’m ready to go that far yet but I think I’ve found the perfect solution — statement luggage. With a gem like this vintage Amelia Earhart suitcase, I can finally fly high.

At Krrb, we believe wholeheartedly in the “Want Not, Waste Not” philosophy. Have as much as you need and what you don’t need, you give on to someone else. It’s a great mantra to practice as your tackle your new year’s resolution to unclutter your life. But it’s an even better mantra to have when we talk about giving back to the community. We did a little research on 5 items you probably have at home that you can donate to those in need

Before we can start getting in with the new in the new year, we need to first get out with the old. Start with clearing out your wardrobes of outdated or unworn clothing. A good rule of thumb is that if you haven’t worn an article of clothing in a year and it is still in good condition, donate it. You’ll find that cleaning out your closet and minimizing your possessions is the easiest way to start fresh and give back to the community—plus it’s tax-deductible too! No clue where to give your goods? No worries! We’ve rounded up a list of non-profit organizations accepting clothing donations in your city

Critical Decor — Twin Peaks, Breaking Down of the Cult Favorite TV Show

Diane, spoiler Alert: THERE WILL BE NO SPOILER ALERTS IN THIS POST.  We’re more concerned with “Where do I get that lamp?” than “Who killed Laura Palmer?”. I’ve identified some themes of the sets in hopes to deciefer a code to unlock the secrets buried within David Lynch’s masterpiece. Perhaps through deconstructing it’s decor we can better understand the mysteries of Twin Peaks…or maybe we’ll just get hungry for pie

Martin Luther King Day — A National Day of Service to Your Community

Monday is the day to take the day on, not off. Most people have January 20th off and what better way to spend your day than to volunteer for an organization in your hood. In 1994, legislation was signed by congress making Martin Luther King Jr. day a national day of service, tasking all of us to help turn his dreams of a better world into reality through local service

As the holiday dust settles and 2014 finds its footing, more than a few of us have looked up only to find ourselves drowning in STUFF! Whether that stuff is left over wrapping paper that you think you’ll use again but never will, gifts you never really needed (“Thanks Great Aunt Esther, I love you but really, you shouldn’t have”) or simply an accumulation of things that are threatening your sanity, the New Year is always a good time to pair down. But how exactly

Welcome to the daily series, In Search Of, where we look high and low on Krrb for one-of-a-kind items that we must have now! Today we’re looking for bookends to keep our books standing up straight.

Bookends are fashionable, functional and make great gifts. They’re a great way to showcase that you take your literature seriously, but not seriously enough to pass up on a sombrero in your living room
