Happy 2014! Time to get the New Year started on the right foot! It’s been sooo cold in my area of the country, and all I want to do is come home from work and stay in. It’s the perfect time to get busy at your home. Do you have an area of your home that makes you cringe when you think about it? Maybe it’s your pantry, attic, basement, garage, a closet (or 2 or 3), or a seldom used bedroom? I know you know what I’m talking about – it needs your attention and should have had it a long time ago. This is the perfect time to organize that space. Don’t wait until you’re in the position I’m in: we are moving very soon and I have to pack all those spaces. They should have been better organized, but of course I put it off. So don’t do what I did.
Start with 3 boxes or big sturdy plastic bags. Label one “KEEP”, one “THROW AWAY”, and one “GIVE AWAY”. Time to be ruthless! If you find yourself saying, “I haven’t seen this for years,” you know you can get rid of it. I give you permission. I know you can do it! Don’t give up and don’t despair. You’ll be so pleased with that space and yourself and in no time it will be close to springtime and you can organize your outdoor spaces! Good luck and keep me posted on how you’re doing.
