Happy New Year, everyone! Well, almost.
With 2013 just hours away, my biggest New Year’s resolution ever is looming over my head:
The goal to become organized.
Last year, my goal was to run my first marathon. Even though that was probably the hardest thing I’ve ever done up to this point, I’m pretty sure that this whole getting-organized business is going to be about 10 times harder.
You see, it’s not in my nature to be organized–it’s in my nature to deposit various bits of clutter in every corner of the house and sweep it off into stacks in some remote corner whenever company comes.
So this is a Big Deal for me.
The breakdown of my goal is going to look like this:
Each week, I’m going to focus on a small checklist of things centered around one particular area of our home (such as the kitchen or bathroom). I’ll post the checklist that I intend to complete each week, and then I’ll follow up the next week with my report.
I’m calling it “50 Weeks to Organized,” and I hope you’ll follow along.
Each week, I’ll post pictures of my progress [and failures], as well as the tally of items I managed to toss that week (since part of my goal in this whole thing is to simplify, simplify, simplify).
My sub-goal in all this is to toss 500 things before Dec. 31 of next year.
So, if you’re like me and need a big kick in the you-know-where to get going on the organization/simplification of your own home, make sure to follow along.
And a very happy new year to you, too!
