My 365 Items in 365 Days Update {January 2016}

It's a new year in the 365 Items in 365 Days Declutter Challenge!  If you struggled to declutter in 2015, this is a fresh start for you!  And if you joined the challenge part way through the year, you can just keep right on decluttering!

It's the 28th day of the year today so if you just started in January (or started afresh), your target is to have purged 28 items by now!  If you haven't started yet, just jump in!  It's always a good time to declutter :)

Today I'll be sharing what I've decluttered since my last update at the end of December. By doing these updates I hope to give you ideas of things you can purge from your home!

We Did It! So Can You! January 2016 Edition

Welcome back to the "We Did It! So Can You!" series.  This series is about real people decluttering their homes, one day at a time!  Busy people, with too much stuff, who decided to take the plunge and purge.

Do you have clutter in your home but don't know where to start purging?  Do you feel like you don't have enough time to declutter?  Have you seen all the 365 Items in 365 Days posts and thought "I really should do that", but you keep putting it off?

You're not alone!  But you also don't need to stay in your paralyzed state.  You CAN declutter!  And to prove it I want to share some stories of people Just. Like. You. 

Today I want to share Linda's journey.

Ready to be inspired?!

Shoe Organizing Tips From Professional Organizers

Once again, I'm so excited to be included in this month's Professional Organizers Blog Carnival!

What is the Professional Organizers Blog Carnival?  I'm glad you asked!  It's a monthly blog post that professional organizers contribute to.  Each month is a different theme and includes posts related to that topic from several professional organizers.  It's a great place to find advice, ideas, and tips for the theme of the month.

This month is all about organizing footwear.  Shoes and boots always seem to clutter up an entry area, mudroom, garage, laundry room, or closet but with the right strategy for your home and your family, you can keep your shoes organized!

So check out all the tips in this post and find the ones that will help you organize your footwear!

Happy New Year 2016!

Happy 2016 everyone!  I hope you all had a great time celebrating last night!  We rang in the new year with extended family last night after our friends had to cancel plans due to illness.  It was the first year we let the kids stay up until midnight so that was very exciting for them!

Now it's time to look back on 2015 and look ahead to 2016!  If decluttering and organizing are on your list of goals or resolutions, you're in the right place!
