Paring Down & Cleaning Up

In an effort to start the new year on a better foot I did two things:

1.  I decided NO resolutions. I have been in school for the last three years and I am currently pregnant- I feel like I deserve a little time to NOT have to think about change, practice, and the horrible side effect of failed resolutions- the guilt.

2. I also decided to get the house in order (It might be called nesting.) Our house has been in major disarray.  I have been working full-time, going to school full-time, and working on numerous side projects.  The house looked like it did when we moved in and it needed help. The biggest news here- we finally got adult bedroom furniture.  Oh Joy!

So these two things have led me to start quite a few pare down/clean up projects.  One project I took care of over winter break was to pare down my Google reader. My interest have changed and there are a few new blogs I have recently found.  This process led me to Mimi + Meg it's a gorgeous blog full of art, design and great ideas.  Recently they posted something called, " Get a Frest Start" and it ignited a FIRE in me.  I wanted to share this with you because I think you will be just as inspired to clean, organize, donate and trash. Click directly to their site (above) and you can download/print a copy for yourself, plus I am sure you will want to add them to your reader. I love how they decided 2012 would be the year to get shit done! Ha! I have already accomplished three things on the list and I am feeling lighter already.


Let me know if you find the list helpful! I am curious...
Do you have a junk drawer? Do you think there is such a thing as being to organized?

  1. I was actually just thinking that I needed to start cleaning. Thanks for the helpful checklist -- I think it will be useful!
