We normally post about organization on New Year’s. It seems like a great way to get a new year off to a fresh start. But, this year, we decided that maybe it makes more sense to get a jump on the organization before the holiday celebrating commences.
With a little help from our friends Julie and Margot’s new book, Remodelista: The Organized Home, we can’t wait to get started!
Who doesn’t want a closet perfectly color coordinated,
And a refrigerator so neat that you can actually see what is inside!
I was just checking out some of my kitchen cabinets, you know, the ones that were so sparse, spare and compulsively organized a few months ago… And they’re already messy again!
I mean, I’ll be honest. My drawer is never going to look like that. One pair of scissors is never going to cut it in our apple-corer, cheese-grater, pineapple-corer, every-gadget-known-to-man kitchen. But this gives me something to strive for at least!
This morning I’ll be at it again with help from Remodelista: The Organized Home, sorting and storing the strays that accumulated over the weekend. But, in the end, it will all be worth it. Because, when the clutter is gone and the lights are bright, there really isn’t a happier place than home!
Wishing you a happy in Monday in — of course — your happy place!
