New Year’s Resolutions Are Not For Me…But I Need To Get Organized in 2013

Well, it is the first week of the year. Happy New Year! I believe 2013 is going to be a gorgeous year.
To me everything is visual; I love beautiful things and stunning spaces. Like many of us, I have new hope for the New Year. I do not make resolutions, I am past that. Although, I would like to work-out more, spend time with my family, work less and be more organized. I would also like to get help cleaning my house…but I don’t think that is in the cards.

So, I searched through the web, magazines, and books for ideas and tips to help me in my quest for organization!

Marthastewart.com has some great ideas…I know we are all a bit tired of Martha, Martha, Martha but she has a talented team of employees working to help us be better at all kinds of stuff.

  • Here they suggest folding sheet sets and storing them in one of the pillowcases. This is brilliant! I think my linen closet will look a lot more organized and it will make changing sheets a breeze.

  • I love this calendar idea; I need to try this out in my office.

  • I wish I could have a pantry like this, in my dreams I do…in reality, it is not going to happen.

  • Ok, while I am dreaming…this HGTV laundry area would be nice as well.

Potterybarn.com has plenty of items to keep us organized. I tend to cheap out and get something from Walmart that I then cannot stand to look at and do not use! No more Band-Aids, this year I will make piles of the items that need to be organized. They will stay in piles, until I can afford to buy the right containers to house them. So…I will watch for sales!

  • This basket on wheels is very clever. I think this could be stored under my desk as I do not work from my desk very often; I prefer using the kitchen island or a comfortable chair.

  •  I really like this new locker cabinet. It is sort of cool-utilitarian.

  • These lined baskets are rustic-chic. Maybe I could make recycling pretty?

IKEA.com is a great place for low-priced high functioning items.

  • This metal unit is very sturdy, I used these for several years in my store, they are great and only $40.00.

  •  This is also a super useful cabinet for $149.00 this would be nice in a kitchen or bathroom.
