New Year, Resolutions, and Clean Spaces

With the New Year upon us, one can't help but think "what can I do better this year"? Whether it's learning a new skill or getting more involved in the community .... this blog is about interiors... and I have one resolution that fits under that category. Simply put, I would like to be better organized. With this comes a couple of things:

Purge. I need to get rid of things I haven't used in the past year....clothes, cheap McDonalds kid's toys, tattered sheets or pillows, etc...

If I am committed to a particular item, I need to store it away properly with other like items....not just on a shelf in a closet thinking I 'might use it' soon.

I need to get better storage boxes. I am thrifty, so I'll often use boxes I already have, but let's be honest, it doesn't get me excited to put something away in a Huggies diaper box. I like to open a closet and see something a little nicer. Much more motivating.

Declutter. Take unnecessary items out from the visible eye. It is eventually going to creep back in there, so you might as well move the Eiffel Tower statue given to you by your in-laws that has no aesthetic appeal.

Vow to keep on your your dusting (and vacuuming and washing). You have spent money on your furniture and decor, now take a few minutes to keep them looking brand new. It'll make you love your home every day, instead of just when company comes over.
