A new year is a fresh start in many ways. During the
Christmas season many people look forward to the New Year because it makes
us take an inventory of our lives and decide what things we would like to
change. New Year’s resolutions are on our minds because we always want to
improve our lives.
Many resolutions begin with cleaning up after the
holidays. When I began putting away the decorations and finding spots for
all the new gifts, I realized we needed more storage containers and shelves.
This need sent my husband to Home Depot, and he returned
with plastic storage tubs, shelves, and bathtub sealant, paint and ideas for
another home improvement project.
Getting organized can only improve your life! What New
Year’s resolutions have you been thinking about?
