To Cut the Mustard is a lifestyle blog focused on providing home improvement tips, easy to follow recipes, interesting productivity hacks and even travel tips.

It came from the idea (or rather reality) that we all want to be excellent at something at some point, but we never give so much effort on taking the steps to¬†becoming one.

That’s why TCM exists – to guide and inspire you to start doing something by sharing with you our latest projects, activities, getaways that are¬†inspired by the same mantra “Do It,” so you can either do the same, or create your own one.
