OK, no good excuse for the long delay since New Year's Day, but now I'm ready to get on with this new year. Maybe it's not exactly Spring cleaning time yet, but January seems to beg for some organization efforts following the excess and clutter of the holiday season! Here are a few easy steps to get you started:
* Reuse a "wet wipes" container to store plastic grocery bags (savvyhousekeeping.com)
* Overhaul your linen closet by storing bed linen sets inside one of their own pillowcases - so much easier to find complete matching sets (savvyhousekeeping.com)
* Use plastic bread tags to label cords in an office or anywhere they seem tangled. (joyofnesting.blogspot.com)
See...? Just start with baby steps!
