New Year, New You

1. Out with the old.

There’s something freeing about getting rid of clutter, and the new year is a great time to make a start! Instead of getting stressed at theOrganized Closet thought of this monumental task, start small. Get one thing out of the way—like a drawer, a closet or a room—and then move on to the next. Pack up old clothes and housewares that you haven’t touched in years and take them to your favorite charity, put them aside for a garage sale, or give them to someone you know who can get real use out of them. If you only have a few minutes, you can make a start by going through your makeup bag and tossing out old cosmetics.

Woman Reading2. Learn something new.

It’s good for your brain, good for your body, and good for the soul. Maybe it’s time to try Pilates, learn how to speak Italian or give French cooking a whirl. Perhaps you’d like to learn a new computer program, study modern art or take up a musical instrument. Many colleges and universities—or possibly your local YMCA or community center—offer adult education courses. Find something that interests you and pursue it!

3. Go green.

Little changes can lead to big results for the planet. Start small—turn off lights when you’re not in the room. Unplug appliances when they’re not in use. Swap your incandescent light bulbs for compact fluorescents or LED lights. Opt for cloth napkins instead of paper ones. Buy a reusable BPA-free water bottle to help reduce all the plastic bottles that clog up landfills.

4. Resolve to eat healthier.Fruits and Veggies

Losing weight is one of the most common New Year’s resolutions. But we’re not talking about diets here; we’re talking about eating healthier. Look at the labels of the food you eat and try to avoid things that are loaded with chemicals and preservatives. Search out your local farmers’ markets and get to know the people in your area who grow your food. Buying food that’s locally grown and in season isn’t just great for the community and the environment, it actually tastes better.

5. And finally… do something just for you.

Whether it’s taking a yoga class, getting a massage, enjoying a long soak in the tub or curling up in your favorite chair with a good book—take time every day to do something to nurture yourself. You deserve it!

    I LOVE YOUR CLOTHES, GET SO MANY COMPLIMENTS. I ALWAYS TELL EACH PERSON, SOFT SURROUNDINGS, THEY SAY WHO, AND I TELL THEM HOW TO LOOK FOR YOU ON THE INTERNET.
    ONE COMPLAINT. I HAVE BEEN ORDERING FROM YOU FOR SOME TIME, YOU HAVE NOT FURNISHED AND E-MAIL ADDRESS WHERE I CAN REPLY TO ANYTHING. I HAVE SIGNED UP FOR ONE MANY TIMES, NO ANSWER. YOU ALSO DO NOT FURNISH A COMFIRMATION WHEN AN ORDER IS MADE OR SHIPPED. I HAVE TO ASK FOR THEM A NUMBER OF TIMES, NO ANSWER. I DID RECEIVED ONE IN DECEMBER, I ASK FOR IT. ORDER WAS WRONG, IT IS JUST NOW BEING SENT NO COMFIRMATION. WHY?
