[Motivational Monday: Resolution to Get Organized!]

There are 2 commonly heard New Year's resolutions: to lose weight and to get organized. Well, for me, this year is to be more organized to help life run just a little more smoothly. I dream of looking at my home and saying "everything's done." Not sure if that will ever happen, but a girl can dream, right?

For starters, you have to have the right tools to get organized. And there are TONS of ideas to organized any space in your home/office. Here are just a few that I found to be helpful:


[Okay, I know we all have 'em: a junk drawer. These handy little dividers designate a place for everything. Now you will never have to waste precious time scrambling for those little items that seem to easily get lost or hidden in a messy drawer.]

[I think this is the coolest thing ever! It is a chalkboard sticker!! Basically, you peel off the backing and stick it wherever you want. How awesome is that?!]

[A plastic bag holder: I actually own this exact one. I know some of you use those reusable shopping bag, and I commend you. I always use plastic bags, but I still recycle some of them when I'm done. But there are times when I will actually reuse a plastic bag, so it's nice to have a place to store them so I can find them ASAP.]

[These little magnetic spice jars are so chic and perfect for easy organization. They can be used pretty much anywhere in your home, not only in the kitchen. I can see these being used to hold jewelry in a closet or even in a craft room to hold buttons, brads, embellishments, etc. You can see how I've used this HERE.]


[Finally an easy-to-grab place to put your hairdryer, brushes, and other hair products! A cabinet door storage is a true space-savor!]


[I also own this exact drawer organizer. I believe it is called "Dream Drawer". Those separates are spring-loaded so you can easily customize them to any size you want. I used them to keep my delicates separate from my socks.]

[This would be perfect for any baby's closet. Since they grow out of their clothes almost daily, this makes it easier to distinguish the different sizes as they grow. Plus, they are so cute!]


[Okay, my husband desperately needs one of these grid storage systems in the garage. There are a ton of tools lying around in random places, but this would designate a specific place for just about everything. Plus, hanging everything up on the wall will help us actually park our car in the garage!]
