Organizing Month by Month

This is a great time of year to tackle home projects and it can seem less daunting if you commit to organizing and updating one room or area a month. Take the foyer, for example, is it time to replace the dead plant in the corner or add some fun pillows or maybe a tray for mail and keys?
It doesn't have to overwhelm you...if your goal is to refresh your bedroom or home office, begin with organizing a drawer a day. With that bit of accomplishment, you'll be inspired to update further.
Once you've cleaned out and de-cluttered, I promise, you'll be motivated to keep it that way!
Who knows, you may even be inspired to paint a room or replace the kitchen backsplash.
At the very least, how about trying to make the beds daily and keep some fresh flowers or plants around the house. It really lifts the spirits! Need more inspiration? Check out organizing pro Peter Walsh's new show on the OWN channel, Monday nights. Or his new book, Lighten Up.
