I am so excited to see 2016 ahead of me! How about you? I am ready to set goals and make resolutions. I know several people who have said that 2015 was a very difficult year. I won’t say I didn’t enjoy 2015, but I will also not be sad to see it go. I felt very out of sorts all year long, like I was just working to keep up and never getting ahead. So I’m sure you all can imagine what my biggest 2016 resolution is…..
It is to get organized! And stay organized! Last year I read about the Kon Mari method in the book The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up. You can read about that here. But, alas, it didn’t last very long. I mean, I try to stay clutter free, but with 6 people living in my house right now, I’m losing my mind! Everyone’s stuff is everywhere!
I’ve decided to start with myself, since I can’t control others. And I’m starting with my schedule. No more forgetting appointments or being late. I am keeping it simple and highly organized. I am going back to the super type A I was a Realtor. I will be planning meals, planning blog posts, keeping track of the schedule, and just making sure I don’t forget stuff. (Well, I’m human so I’ll forget stuff from time to time.)
I bought myself some super duper planners. They will help me, well, plan. I adore the Day Designer that I have purchased. It has a space for everything! And I’ve color coded it based on family members too.
The Home Base Binder by Emily Ley will also be a great asset to me this year. It has a section for everything! There’s meal planning, home reno budgeting, business card organization…. It is so fantastic!
So, once I organize myself on paper, I will be working on various rooms in my house. I am giving myself the entire month to get organized and start 2016 the right way!
