Pacing Myself for the New Year

So I will admit that I indeed failed for the December daily posting. I don't know why it's so hard for me to commit to a blog post a day but I guess at this point in my life, it's not really my thing. I have to be okay with that!

For the new year- wow 2012 already!- I didn't make a new year's resolution. I never keep those things and they always end up weighing me down. I am however adopting another word of the year. This year my word is simplify and this is what I am focusing on this year.

Basically if it crowds my life I am getting rid of it. Now more holding on to baggage and extra's that hold me down. I am also starting into some routines that will help simplify and create an easier life for our household. I am going to undertake 1 achieveable goal each month to align with my word- simplify

So far I am working on a 12 week rotational meal plan complete with shopping lists. So far I have completed 7 weeks of that rotation and will be completing the shopping lists this weekend.

For January I am committing to downsizing my closets. I have worked hard over the last while to send some things to consignment and it paid off $60 in my pocket. I have more that I need to get rid of and am going to work on that. By the end of this month I want to have all my clothes in one closet.....yikes! I admit I have a full closet and then am using 1/2 of another. There are dresses that I'm holding on to that I'll never wear again and odds and ends that need to go. So this is my goal for this month. Should be able to make that happen!

Please stop by and cheer me on throughout the year!

I didn't do so well at the daily posting either but it was fun while it lasted! :)
Good luck with the purge! I did a huge one a few years ago and, while closets are filling up again,(insert a little red face here) I don't think it will be as hard to purge again this time since I figured out I can live quite nicely without all the 'Stuff'! Very smart to make some money on the side! Might help go toward another vacation.

No worries on the no daily posting! :) Simplify is a word that is resonating with me too. I have been simplifying so many areas of my life it is crazy. I love it. Now I have to move on to the STUFF in the house. We have waaaayyyy too much.
