Capsule Wardrobe

The Chicks chat about Organization with topics, like email, making their beds, menu planning, closets, and capsule wardrobes.  From Bullet Journals to Excel Spreadsheets, the chicks hilariously cover it all in this episode, but not before a not so quick dating update. (We try to keep that neat and organized too.) This is a really funny episode y'all.
