Organization Can Be Fun, Healthy & Colorful!

Getting organized is a popular New Year’s resolution, but it’s also one of the most daunting, especially for those who are not natural organizers. That’s why we’re here to help you kick start an amazing new decade with everything in place so you feel cool, calm and collected.


In order to get organized, you have to start by clearing the clutter and keeping it at bay. There’s no shortage of places to find tips, from friends and family, to people who dedicate their lives to the topic, creating best selling books, articles, videos, and TV shows. The important thing is that you make a commitment to de-clutter.

“Get your clutter under control, and your attitude and health just may improve, too.” WebMD


Once you’ve cleared the initial clutter, it’s important to create a system to ensure things stay manageable and you don’t fall back into your unorganized ways.

Dedicate specific places to capture the clutter and create spaces where you can organize it and make it look pretty. For example, when you receive your mail, try to make the decision right away whether to keep it or recycle it.
