new year. new you.

What is it about the new year that seems to inspire everyone to clean out their closets, want to eat healthy, exercise, and do better in all aspects of life? Has it just become tradition and so everyone focuses on it and we all get infected by eachother?

At any rate, I think it is great that we are all inspired to do and be better. I think the trick is to set realistic and specific goals. I have been inspired to organize. I love organizing. You can't always tell by the way my house looks, but sometimes it takes me being excited about re-organizing some area of my home to be motivated to doing a really good clean on my house. I had hoped to get my act together today and be able to share some of my favorite organizing tips, but didn't get around to taking some of the photos I wanted to. Hopefully I will tomorrow... or the next day:)

I can share with you however, a cleaning list I have developed in the last couple of months that I have loved. It is a little extensive, but is a good guide and goal post when it comes to housekeeping. I got it from Martha Stewart's Homekeeping Handbook book and adapted it to fit my own home. I love it and keep a copy of it on my refrigerator. I also highly recommend the book as it has all sorts of helpful tips when it comes to housekeeping. Hope it helps someone!
