We asked and you answered!  Topping your list of “house goals” for 2018 are renovations and organization.   

Tackling Organization…

From Marie Kondo’s “KonMari”  organization technique to the thousands of Pinterest boards dedicated to storage tips and tricks, the amount of information can be overwhelming; making it difficult to determine HOW to begin to implement your resolution to have a more organized home.

I have a simple suggestion; listen to yourself.

  • Do you hate seeing the mail piled on the kitchen table the minute you walk in the door?
  • Frustrated by digging through the pantry for dinner ingredients every night?
  • Hate walking by the mess of shoes and coats on your entryway floor every evening before you go to bed?

Pick the ONE problem area that is the most frustrating to you and FIX IT!  After all, as organizational author Christina Scalise notes:

“Organization isn’t about perfection; it’s about efficiency, reducing stress and clutter, saving time and money and improving your overall quality of life.”

I think that’s a sentiment we can all support in 2018.
