I’m pretty happy to say I have gotten a jump start on New Year’s Organization even before New Year’s this year! I took off work this week so I could get a much needed rest after the busy holidays (I highly recommend the post holiday hiatus!). Today I thought I’d share some organizational ideas and products that can show you how to get organized in the New Year, clear out clutter, and start off fresh!! *this post contains affiliate links
- Empty your closet! This is the time of the year to go through your closet and purge. This week I went through and very liberally got rid of all the clothes that I hadn’t worn in the past 6 months to a year. I stopped holding onto clothing in hopes that those size 4’s might fit again someday. It was very liberating and I have SO much space left in my closet now!! Once your closet is cleaned out, you may want to organize with some of these great items….

Here’s some products for organizing your bathroom better….

4. Go through your kitchen cupboards. This is HUGE. I don’t know about you, but I need to do this about every 3-6 months rather than once a year. Take this opportunity to go through your kitchen cupboards and your pantry to organize your kitchen utensils, put your pots, pans, and cookie sheets in order, and get those cupboards cleaned out. Here’s some items that can help you organize your kitchen easily…..
