January is all about cleaning, decluttering, simplifying, and starting “fresh” for the New Year ahead. Because of this, I’m sharing 3 guest posts I wrote this past month — all about these “fun” topics 🙂
Does Your Home Have “White Space”?
I’m a huge advocate for “less stuff” and regular purging.
I almost always stop and think before bringing anything extra into our home (besides groceries), and often I decide against bringing the items home — even if they are free and even if we have the space to store them.
In my opinion, it seems silly to keep so much STUFF — unless of course, we have a use for it.
Today, I’m over at Life.YourWay.net (one of my favorite blogs) talking about my love of “White Space” in our home and life.
5 Clever Tools to Corral Cord Clutter
At the beginning of every New Year, I have a growing urge to declutter my office — and one of my biggest clutter pet peeves is cord clutter.

So since we’re still in the first month of another New Year, I’m ready to clean, clean, clean!
After a relaxing time away from work during the holiday season, I like to “attack” my office and whip it into shape for another productive year ahead.
I find that when my office is clean and decluttered, I not only enjoy spending time in my office, but I’m also much more productive because I can find what I want and don’t waste time moving piles around or searching through all the junk in my drawers.
