Organizing is one of those words that can get you excited or leave you running away. After the holidays have come and gone and we start tearing down the Christmas decorations, I have this urge to walk from room to room with a bottle of pledge and a dust mop and clean everything.
There is just something about a clean house.

Every year we have so many things come into our home and I have to start decluttering. Closets, drawers, cabinets, rooms....I start with bedrooms, usually mine. Work my way to the kids rooms. I consign a lot. Find a local consignment store and call and get an appointment for drop off.
I make around $600 a year consigning everyones clothes, household items.

I also have gone thru my Christmas stuff. If I did not use it this year, it went to Goodwill or Consignment for next year.

Also, I love to grocery shop out of my cabinets and pantries. This is a great way to look for expired items as well. Once every 3 - 4 months I will menu plan from the pantry and do pretty good. It cuts down on your grocery bill quite a bit too. Check your freezer, I bet there is something in there to cook.

Buy a planner or a calendar. I love my planner. It helps me to stay accountable daily.

Get a Devotional Book. I started "Delight yourself in the Lord...even on Bad Hair Days" and I love it!!!

It's a new year!!! Embrace it!! Happy 2016!!!

Yum your menu looks so good.

I need to get myself a planner, I still don't have one and it's definitely something I should get to keep my stuff on track.
