Christmas is over. The week after Christmas always makes me a little sad. After all the hustle and bustle, I am not sure what to do with my time. The last thing I want to do is clean. But it must be done. Last year, I blogged about organization and living with less from time to time. As always, that motivation lasted for a little while, then *POOF* it disappeared. So, today, I am hear to say my motto for next year is – Living With Less in 2012. This is not a New Year’s Resolution. I do not declare resolutions. It is simply a motto that I plan to live by ;) Raise your hand if you want to join with me and declare this as your motto too! Maybe I will start here.

I see you shaking your head ;)
From time to time, my blog posts will feature cleaning out and living with less. If we have less in our homes, then there will be less to clean and organize :)
Items will be purchased only if needed or will be used within a reasonable amount of time (example: a good sale on hand soap).
Items purchased will have a place to live (the junk closet does not count as a place to live).
If new items are purchased, then something must be donated (if worthy) it it’s place (buy a new handbag, a handbag must go).
If I purchase a thrift store “project”, I have exactly 6 weeks to complete my wonderful project idea ;) – I will not store in the garage.
Just because it is 90% off doesn’t mean it comes home to live.
I may add more rules later, but right now I can’t think of anymore :) My mind is tired.
