Being organized frees up time, space, and even brings peace-of-mind and a feeling of calm from your surroundings!

As 2017 is here, it is exciting to have a literal new beginning in a new year arriving!  This gives us a moment to pause and reflect and evaluate what matters most to us!  Did you notice how fast 2016 zoomed by?  It causes us to want to slow down and savor all the meaningful parts of life and realize to focus on the people and experiences that make all the difference in our day-to-day living.

WHY NOT START NEW HABITS THAT FOSTER WHAT IS MOST IMPORTANT TO YOU?

There ARE time-saving habits--

One that I find most beneficial in my life is "to have a place for everything and put it in its place"--RIGHT AFTER I AM DONE WITH IT!!!

START TODAY to live this principle!!  

This day--put whatever you use away right when you're done with it!  Keep it up day after day until it is habitual and you can't imagine living any other way!!

If you don't have a place for it and it's something you use a lot; figure out the most convenient and easy place to store it and get rid of something else in that spot you never use to make room for it there.

REMEMBER!!  Keep like things together and your organization will flow and make sense to you!

BELIEVE IT OR NOT, this philosophy about life and your home will free up your mind and life for those things you know are most important to you!!

HAPPY 2017--as you have fun developing this habit that you will wonder how you ever lived without!  Have fun creating an environment in your home where family and friends love to gather and actually feel inspired when they are there!!
