New Year, New You Challenge Day 4: Get Organized!

Posted by   + Show Post

Welcome to Day 4 of the New Year, New You Challenge!

It's a new year and time for a new beginning which means it's the perfect time to clear the clutter and bring order to the chaos to your home and life. Containers and closet organizers can work wonders to keep things neat and tidy, calendars can help you track appointments, and lists can make it easier to keep up with everything you need to do each day.

Do you make yourself "to do" lists? What's your secret for keeping things neat and organized?

I ALWAYS have a mental to do list. I can never keep up with a written one.

I write everything on my calendar, I'd be lost otherwise.

I go through my winter closet at the beginning of the season and my summer closet at the beginning of the summer and get rid of clothes that don't fit.  I don't guess; I try them on!
