The beginning of a new year is a great time to organize your home or office space. And what better way to organize your space than with swoonworthy products that will keep your home neat, pretty and clutter-free. 




Organization is all about reducing stress, eliminating clutter, and organizing your life. Here are a few tips to get you started:


1. Eliminate clutter.  Decide which room you want to tackle first and get started. You will need three tall kitchen garbage bags or large boxes. Label the bags or boxes "throw away," "give away," and "put away." Don't be surprised if you feel separation anxiety when you first start clearing away the clutter. It's normal. Throwing away garbage or donating items can be difficult at first, but when the bags are out of the house, it will feel as if a weight has been lifted off your shoulders. 

2. Everything has a place. If you follow this one rule, organizing your home or office will be easier than ever. Having all your necessities in one place saves you time and frustration. It doesn't matter where you want to keep daily mail, unread magazines, or school papers that need to be signed, as long as it has a place and is in its place.

3. Clean up daily. Allow 5-10 minutes each day to tidy up either after dinner or before bed. Take a look around and wherever you see clutter forming, put it away. If you find you don't need the cluttered items anymore, then follow step number one and repeat. 
  
To make organizing more fun and rewarding, I love incorporating functional and fabulous decor in my home. It makes me feel good when I file away mail in pretty file folders or place spare change and business cards in a shiny gold box. And while some may feel "functional and fabulous" is an oxymoron, you really can have the best of both worlds. It just takes a little planning.

  8. Definitely need to make a plan to get rid of the clutter, and haven't think about the labeled boxes. I guess I never thought I needed to get rid of something! Good advice!

  10. I have been working on this for years. I have items from my grandparents, uncle, and parents. Talk about junk! The problem is culling the antiques and family items out of the junk

  15. Great tips! A good work space is imperative to good work. although sometimes I have to admit while working clutter is ok with me, but after I am done it all needs to be cleared away in order to not hinder the next project.

  16. I love these pieces. I have learned that it is good to have things tucked away inside something else, so it is good to have storage that hides stuff (a pile of papers, cords, etc).

  17. I can so relate to these three things! I'm working on all of them still, especially after getting a good start of the decluttering part back in November, when we had a "super storm" here in Maine that knocked out power for nearly a week (for us - much longer for other people). Wasn't much else I could do, so I had focused time to work on decluttering and reorganizing - but still a long way to go!

  18. Ohhh I know this is exactly what I need to do! I was literally texting my husband just YESTERDAY about these points, saying the same kinds of things to him. We've got 5 children and it's beyond time we go minimalist. I just can't keep up!

  19. The pineapple basket is cute. I wish that I had a catch all basket to put blankets in. We usually have a few blankets in our living room in case we get chilly.

  20. Can I take one of each please? I'm hoping to get organized for the New Year.
