New Years Resolution Tips for Organizing Your Life

I don’t know how many of you have vowed to make getting organized part of your New Years Resolution, but I sure did. I moved in December and gosh darn if the school didn’t let the kids out during that time (ha). So organizing was the least of my priorities. After packing in November, and moving in December, you’d think I’d be organized by now, but I’m not. Not as much as I’d like to be that is. So, that’s how come getting organized is pretty high on my list of resolutions, or goals for 2017. I’ve put my best foot forward and am already taking steps to make my life run smoother and I hope my tips help you organize your life as well.

For the first time in my life, I’m writing things down in one place instead of using tons of sticky notes that I had laying around everywhere. Had is the keyword here. I’m using an At-a-Glance Vienna Weekly/Monthly Appointment Book that I got towards the end of last year and I highly recommend it. You can click on my link to buy one at Shoplet.

I’m starting back on a skin care routine that takes mere minutes to do. I’m using Alpha Skin Care products because they are effective, within my budget and they absorb quickly and effortlessly so I don’t have to wait forever to apply my foundation after using them. I’ve gone from a million skin care products to just 5. Go me. I can see my bathroom sink again.

I’ve thrown away half of everything I own. Say what? I did. Anything I haven’t used in a year went to the curb. As fast as I put it out there, it was taken so there really is truth to “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure.” Decluttering is necessary for all of our lives. When I organize, I make a home for something I’m going to keep. When I declutter, I’m providing a permanent solution to my problem which in my case is lack of space.

I’m going green with my mail. I’ve been opting out of snail mail and I’m receiving everything via email. Paperless is a better choice for me because mail tends to pile up otherwise. My table then becomes a catch-all to mail and I’ve decided to put an end to that this year. Check out this great article on how to go completely paperless this year.

    I always feel so much better when my home is organized. I’ve taken steps over the last year to help keep things organized and am always looking for more ways to continue the process. Labeling definitely helps and does having a place for everything.

    We have been taking big steps to get organized around here. So much stuff has been given away. We probably should have had a sale! Those labels would come in handy as I’m getting my kids’ rooms together.
