While I was making my New Year's Resolutions, I decided this was the year I was going to SIMPLIFY. This concept goes am beyond just organizing. And it does not mean to be a minimalist.
By Simplifying to me means, finding routine,
smell the roses,
giggle with a baby,
meals with family,
spending time on adventures,
enjoying the fruits of my labors,
get rid of what you don't like, want or use.
Carefully, closet by closet, drawer by drawer, I am looking at every item in this house and accessing its importance. Do I really want to give up space for the item?
1. Each item that stays through the editing gets organized and catalogued. Several fun apps help with clothing organization.
2. I created an excel spreadsheet to organize dishes, table linens, place cards, etc.
3. Pinterest is a great way to organize blog or magazine ideas.
4. I am taking items to Goodwill weekly rather than a big pile that waits for a truck, etc. They leave each week.
What are you doing this year to get organized? I will be sharing which clothing app I end up using and my excel spreadsheet in the coming weeks.
