There’s a reason National Organizing Month is in January. After a hectic December (and November, and October, and…), it’s not just natural to need to get things back in order, it’s necessary. Start your 2012 off on the right foot by making a few New Year’s organizing resolutions. But don’t feel like you have to get everything done right now. If you try too much upfront, you’ll quickly tire and throw in the towel all together. Instead, set some realistic benchmarks and goals for the first three months, and then keep a steady pace, doing what you can. Don't forget to write them down in a notebook, planner or calendar!
