Some New Year Prep...

 Today we worked around the house
getting ready for the new year....
  Since we are limited on space...we found a little table 
for $6.99 at the thrift store 
and set up a small office area in the living room...

 Then my husband worked outside trimming the bushes and 
shrubs for the winter season...


While I straightened up the pantry.......                                              
...and organized my extra dish/appliance 
area in the garage...                                                       


















I rewarded us both with some tuna burger 
sandwiches... so we could kick off the new year 
with a healthy & delicious meal!


It felt good to get things organized....
...now I'm off to tackle my craft room!

Happy New Year!
Stay Cozy,
Carrie

Oh, I can't imagine you unorganized! But us on the other hand! Whew....yesterday I told my husband that we had to get some super big boxes and start getting rid of stuff! We haven't started yet!

Happy New Year!!!

That's my goal for this year too, to get a little more organized and get rid of stuff we don't need. It does feel good... not only does it declutter your space, it declutters your mind too:)

Happy New Year!

I admire your organizational skills. The garage shelves, all so neat and orderly look amazing. I need to get the lead out and start organizing.

Hi Carrie, Something about the New year gives me the organizing and cleaning bug too. Looks like you've been one busy gal. Hubby and I have vowed to eat healthier and exercise more. Got to get rid of that Winter blubber. lol! Thanks for visiting my blog. I really appreciated your comment.
