Urban Housewife

Just kidding, nobody thinks housework rules! But sometimes, it’s gotta get done.

The Urban Housewife – she’s like a regular housewife, only with a heck of a lot less space to work with.

She’s also me! I’m Birdy Slim, and not too long ago Husband and I moved to our tiny love nest in Brooklyn. If you’ve ever lived in a city, you know the struggles that come with cramming an entire life (and a shared one at that) into a Polly Pocket-sized apartment. And the challenges don’t stop there. The walk from my place to the store is too long. I’m too short to hang the curtains I trudged all the way across town for. My imagination is way to big for my small third floor walkup. And my budget makes a shoestring look like one of those plush velvet ropes outside the club I’m too tired to go out to on Saturday night.

But the Urban Housewife is always up for a challenge! That’s why I started theUrbanHousewife.com – advice, tips and tricks for the big city girl with a small domestic space.

Posts, projects and tips are organized by rooms of my apartment:

The Living Room – Where we’ll talk DIY crafts, home renovations and making the most of small spaces.

The Kitchen – Girl’s gotta eat! (So does Husband, as it turns out.) So here we’ll share recipes, quick tips and the occasional gadget you shouldn’t be cooking without.

The Bedroom – Where we’ll talk love, sex, and everything in between.

The Garage – If you couldn’t cram it into some corner of the rooms listed above, you’ll find it here. In other words, miscellaneous!

The Backyard – Sometimes we’ve all just got to get away. Here we’ll talk vacation tips, trips of a lifetime and what to do with all that junk (I mean memories!) you lug back with you.

The Guest Room – Just kidding, I obviously don’t have an extra bedroom in this tin can. But the site does! Here we’ll feature guest posts, recipes, tips, etc. Interested in contributing to theUrban Housewife.com?

So thanks for stopping by! Come on in, kick off your shoes (no seriously, I just vacuumed) and enjoy our advice, tips and tricks for the big city girl with a small domestic space.
