You've heard the adage: Time is money. But there is no situation where it holds more true than at the grocery store. The Food Marketing Institute estimates that the average shopping trip should take no longer than 30 minutes—and every minute a shopper spends inside the store after the first half hour will cause them to spend around 55¢ to $1 more.

This week, the Wall Street Journal wrote a great piece about classic books we haven't read, and how to get over the guilt. In it, there's a poll asking people if they've read Pride & Prejudice and, as of this writing, 53% of respondents had not. As someone who's devoured it and multiple iterations of it at least a dozen times, I audibly gasped. Of course, I have my own gaping holes in the classical canon that I have yet to read that might cause you, dear readers, to clutch your pearls. Here's a small selection of the books I will probably never finish (or start), and I'm (mostly) okay with that.

The eclectic collector bathroom is all about the mix. You may find things that you wouldn't necessarily think to put in the room (i.e. a dresser!), but that's the beauty of it. To get the look, think about pulling together off-beat furnishings, an area rug or runner (rather than a smaller bath mat), and ditch prescribed vanity lighting for a vintage chandelier. Oh, and don't forget the art!

When it came time to get around to the guest bedroom, however, Christina went full force on DIY projects, smart planning and beautiful design choices.
