Part of my NY resolutions are to be better organized in life.
Oh wait isn't that everyone's NY goal?!
And I am pretty sure it was my goal last year and probably the year before.
This year is going to be different. This is starting to sound repetitive.
But really there is only one way to make something happen and that is by actually doing it. My old boss favorited this quote and used it all the time:
"The definition on of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results" Albert Einstein.
This is so true.
If we continue to eat fast food we are not going to lose the 15 lbs that need gone ASAP.
If I continue to only run that comfortable 4 miles instead of bumping it up to 6, 9 and eventually 12 and 15 I am never going to be ready for a half marathon.
If I don't purge some of these clothes in my closet (some from my high school days) I am never going to get a grip on this horrible laundry situation we have going on. You would seriously think the Duggars lived here by the laundry mountain we have in the hallway.
If we don't sit down and make a budget and stick to it we are going to be stuck in this rental house forever.
If I don't make some meal plans my husband is going to continue eating deer meet every night until we run out then I am going to have to cook something. Pretty sure we can't live on wine and pb&j.
So in an effort to not be living with so much insanity I am going to make it a weekly goal to implement new organization routines into our lives.
Each week I am going to pick a certain area that needs major improvement and fix it.
This week we are starting with our closet.
Our closet is not a standard closet and it's not a huge walkin closet.
But it is a walk in closet that is big enough for the two of us to not have to put away our off season clothes and have to find storage elsewhere.
We also don't use a dresser, instead everything is hung up. Unless it is socks, underwear, bras or running shorts,
So I have scoured Pinterest for the best closet organization tips and ideas and this week I am going to see what we can do with our unorganized mess and I will do a follow up at the end of the week, most likely on Saturday.
Some areas that need improvement are:
+a place for scarfs
+socks & under garments
+bulky winter coats & sweatshirts
The biggest problem will be:
+getting rid of everything I do not need or wear!
+I am also going to focus on making it an area that is easier in the eyes (read: goodbye light blue paint and weird ceiling)
Do you have a great storage idea for me?
Please leave any suggestions for us because at this point we are considering all options.
