Improvised Life is a sourcebook of tools and ideas for inventive living. It features unique solutions to challenges we all encounter daily, from home design and cooking to productivity and self-expression to matters of the spirit and heart. Its mission is to surprise, illuminate, and spark new ways of looking at the everyday.

It was founded in 2009 by Sally Schneider, an award-winning journalist, editor, syndicated columnist, radio commentator, and stylist who once wrangled 600 live snails for an Irving Penn photograph. Her very improvisational work has been the laboratory for this blog. (Read more about Sally here.)

Improvised Life is a rare clear space with NO ads or branded content; it is supported solely by its readers.
