Happy New Year! Happy New Organization!

2012 is the year I will get a handle on my clutter and my organization.

Get the point. I am determined to make it happen this year by continuing some of the steps I started taking in 2011. Things that have worked for me so far include monthly menu planning, redoing my entryway, decluttering, and the FlyLady.

To keep my mind focused on my goal for 2012, I woke up and once I got my Keurig going, I cleaned out my spice organizer. Now, all of my old spices have been ditched and the spices that are left are alphabetized so I can easily find them. The next step is to put them away in the right spot!

And yes, I love using over the door shoe organizers to keep things in their place. I even have one in my bedroom that holds all of my scarfs. The girls have one in their room that holds little shoes that are out of season or blankets for their baby dolls.

Also, thanks to Pinterest, I am going to do something similar to this 40 bags in 40 days challenge. Here's my list of 31, for each of the days in January:

  1. Spice pantry
  2. Christmas decorations (reduce from what we didn't use)
  3. Kitchen drawers
  4. Cabinet above the microwave
  5. Above the cabinets
  6. Baking & snack cabinets
  7. Bottom half of pantry
  8. Top half of pantry
  9. Under the kitchen sink
  10. Refrigerator
  11. Freezer
  12. Tupperware cabinet
  13. Downstair's landing
  14. Game box
  15. The girls' shoes
  16. Right side of entertainment center
  17. Left side of entertainment center
  18. My junk drawer
  19. Kid's book shelf
  20. Kid's closet
  21. Underneath master bathroom sink
  22. Underneath guest bathroom sink
  23. My nightstand
  24. Jewelry armoire
  25. Bookshelf in master bedroom
  26. Top drawer of crafting dresser
  27. Middle drawer of crafting dresser
  28. Bottom drawer of crafting dresser
  29. Linen shelves
  30. Laundry closet shelving
  31. My van
And just as a reminder to myself...

2012 is the year I will get a handle on my clutter and my organization.
