Hi there – and Welcome to Almost Practical!
If you are interested in organizing your home, time, meals, finances, and your blog – you are in the right place.
My name is Neena Nandagopal and I am probably the most “disorganized” organized person that you know.
I have a love/hate relationship with things. Literally.
You have probably been there – you see something new (be it a product, app, or even just a strategy) and want to try it. But then you end up with a clutter of things and information.
As you try to dig yourself out – the hole just gets deeper.
It’s crazy – but we are all so busy that it is getting harder to manage our
- finances, and
- work (or, in my case, blog)
Leonardo Da Vinci said it best:
Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.
But let’s face it, simplifying is hard to do.
I am on a quest to find things that make sense and make life easier.
It may sound cliché – but I try things so you don’t have to.
I write about …
Tips for Organizing your Home and Family
My kids are teenagers now.
I thought life would slow down at this stage – but it is busier than ever before.
If you also run a busy household you will find a lot of useful information on this site for
- making easy and (somewhat) healthy recipes
- organizing your time, space, and information
- practical product reviews on things for you home – especially technology and kitchen products (somehow I am drawn to those categories – can’t get enough!)
- travel tips and finding great destinations to visit, and
- ideas for carving out time to take care of yourself.
Finance and Budgeting Tips
With two kids in college, two headed there soon, and retirement looming ahead – finances are really important.
Not only do I want to save money and spend money wisely, I also want to make money.
To that end, you will find ideas for budgeting and how to be intentional about how you manage your money.
Blogging is what I love to do – all. the. time.
I started blogging years ago to create a side hustle that I could do as a stay at home mom.
After staying home with my kids for all these years, I found that I love the freedom of not having to go to work every day.
Plus, I found that I was addicted to everything about blogging – especially the technical aspects.
So, I share a lot of blogging tutorials to make blogging easier for you.
Whether it is for the home or for blogging – I will always share a great deal.
So – Why “Almost” Practical?
You might be wondering why my site is “Almost” Practical.
Well, first – “All” Practical would be a little boring, don’t you think?
And, you can weigh the pros and cons all day but when it comes to decision time – don’t you let that little gut feeling make the final choice more often than not?
Not everything I do is 100% practical but most of what I do is based on common sense and usability more than anything else.
