Let’s Organize: 2012

organized home challenge

This year, I’m challenging myself to be more organized. {What a common New Year’s Resolution, right!?} Though common, I know my home needs it, and Home Storage Solutions inspired me with their simple “52 Weeks to an Organized Home” series. Since I’m not yet in the 2kids-big-house-attic-garden-and-a-dog phase, I’ve taken their schedule and have adapted it a 50-Week Series to fit my young-adult-small-space-living lifestyle.

Anyone else feel like me, and take one look at their messy home, inside their pantry, in their closet… and feel totally overwhelmed? Yeah. I love: the way it is broken down week by week. No reason to feel overwhelmed, because all of the tasks are small and simple. And by the end of the year… ta-da! A {mostly} perfect home!

I’ll walk through the challenges week by week, and hope you’ll do the same! Join me: Follow me on Facebook and Twitter, and subscribe via e-mail. Throughout the year, share your successes {& failures} & photos with me each week, and I will share them on the blogosphere. Here we go:
