Resolve To Get Organized

For me, the start of the new year signals a time to set goals and get organized. As our calendars flip to a new year, it feels like a fresh start. It seems like everyone is making resolutions to ditch bad habits and start better ones. Are you?

One very common New Year’s Resolution is to get more organized, which I just love because I’m an organizing nut. Give me something that needs some order and you can bet I’ll not only organize it, but I’ll also develop a system for keeping it that way going forward. Creating systems is something I excel at. I’m all about organizing a closet or setting up a calendar, but I always try to take it a step further to ensure there is a process in place to make these things happen in a more organized, efficient way in the future.

Today, we’re kicking off a new series on the blog that I’m coining Resolve to Get Organized. During the month of January, I’m going to cover a lot of organizing ground. We’ll be talking about topics related to settings goals, organizing your home, and organizing your life. I can hardly wait to share what works for me and advice for incorporating it into your own life. I’m also pumped to learn some organizing tips and tricks from you!

Here are some things I’m excited to tackle with you during this series to get organized:

  • Setting goals and designing a road map to crush them
  • Developing a weekly schedule that keeps you sane and doesn’t allow for things to fall through the cracks
  • Establishing daily routines that increase productivity and reduce stress
  • Determining a daily schedule that allows you to attack your to-do list
  • Ruthlessly organizing your email inbox
  • Conquering those piles of mail and paper
  • Forming habits to keep your house clean and clutter-free

An entire series of blog posts filled with advice for organizing your life and your home. Perfect for my new year's resolution to get more organized this year!
