Well, its that time of year. Resolutions. You know those things you say your going to do but you don’t do for long or at all. Yeah. I am anti resolutions. I do however believe in goals. So this year I am setting some new goals, both personal and home design and some of those goals intertwine. Here are just a few…
1. Think! My family is on a budget. And while I would love to buy everything on my wishlist and all the things I see and “fall in love with”, it is just not possible without going into debt which I refuse to do. So, I really need to make smart decisions and only bring in items that truly I LOVE, and that I have a specific home for.
2. Organize and declutter. Everything in my house as a place to go, but the place itself, while out of sight, is not as organized as I would like. Food is in the pantry, towels are in the linen closet, but I can do better. Also in this category is decluttering or plurging. Everything may have a home but we can always to with less. I can only display so much in my vignettes, I have only so much room in my closets. If I don’t need it, use it, or love it, it has to go.
3. Finish tasks. Most rooms in our house still need one or two things until I can call them finished. I have a tendency of getting things almost completed, then, I stop. It is usually little things such as putting the last coat of paint on the window trim or purchasing frames for a gallery wall. I also have a problem with starting projects and either never finishing them myself or I give up completely. This is going to be the hardest goal to accomplish! Stay tuned for a 2015 projects list.
What are you hoping to accomplish this year?
