SIMPLIFY ME (PLEASE)! I don’t even know where to start…but my goal is to get all my paper clutter in order.
I’m looking to get a better handle on recycle, compost, and garbage sorting in the kitchen.
I’d like to organize all my finances/bill paying online — I still have some paper bills, and my system is far from organized…creates more stress than it should!
SIMPLIFY ME! I’m actually in the process of getting rid of 100 things from our house. Got the suggestion right here and I’m well on my way with over 60 things already.
addendum to previous comment: SIMPLIFY ME!
SIMPLIFY ME! We’re looking to redo our kitchen in 2011, and we love to cook – in order to make better use of our space, I’m thinking we need to be more selective in our kitchen goods. Step One: The Great Kitchen Cleanout of 2011! Out with the unitaskers, in with the multitaskers!
Looking for ways to incorporate minimalism and mindfulness this year. Thinking of cutting cable, eliminating a lot of “things” from my life with an upcoming move (moving in with fiance) and a desire to focus more on my passions (career, relationships).
Meagan D says
My goal for 2011 is to get rid of things I’ve been holding on to for years for no reason. We’ll be moving this summer and I want to get rid of half of our “stuff” before then.
To clean my basement full of school supplies!
I’m looking to simplify my life (and improve the lives of my husband and kids!) by doing meal planning and grocery shopping for a whole week at a time.
Simplify me! Closets for sure!
Melanie Knight says
I’ll be simplifying and decluttering our offices this coming year, especially, paperwork.
I would like to become better organized in all areas of our house to eliminate the seemingly endless clutter. Our linen closet and bedroom closets currently need the most help.
Suzanne T says
SIMPLIFY ME! I’d like to simplify our toy storage area…it’s overtaking our house.
I have such a hard time keeping my house neat and “visitor ready” because I work a lot of long hours and own my own business. It would be nice to implement learned techniques to d-eclutter my life.
SIMPLIFY ME! I’ll be moving in a few months, and I hope to be able to declutter and get rid of everything I don’t absolutely love or need.
By helping me use the space in my teeny tiny apartment as maximized as possible! I need help to make sure every inch of storage we have is used to its optimized potential!
SIMPLIFY ME! I would like to finally organize my spare room and make it a liveable space
Simplify Me! I know that I have a great looking desk in my office… I just haven’t seen it in a few months…
Kelly Branderhorst says
I plan on going through all of our closets and getting rid of everything we don’t use! And then organize it all beautifully! And with a 3 & 2 year old at home, I have all the time in the world to accomplish this. HA. :)
Melissa @ Sassy Mommy says
Funny this is the giveaway… Just today I created an excel spreadsheet of all my debt. On there I listed how to get it paid down in 3 years so my husband and I can move to a new state like we have wanted to do for a long time. New home, new adveture for our family. On that list I have listed my goals for 2011 and actually my 3 year plan too. Putting things in front of me, visually, helps me see what needs to be done and organize my head and my life.
I need to get a handle on our paperwork…we both have lots of paperwork because of our careers and because we’re in the middle of an adoption. I need a system to keep me organized!
Simplify me! I am going to declutter my storage closets and attic, and finally put all of my crafts, holiday decorations, etc in clear boxes so that I can identify them easier and have them all in one place!
Leah @ L4L says
Simplify me! I’d love to see the clutter and time ones!
Next year we hope to organize our digital files. We have personal 3 laptops, 2 work laptops, 3 external hard drives and more than 6 flashdrives, plus our phones, cameras and ipods which also have content. Can Simplify 101 help me tackle that?!
Seeing that I have a baby coming in 2011 and my life seems to be constant clutter (which I hate), I better get this taken care of now!
Kelly Klein says
Simplify Me! Would love to declutter kids toys, games, crafts. Every room in my house needs some TLC. :)
Anjani Webb says
We’re looking at not renewing our lease and buying a new house this year. A lot to organize and clean out!
I am hoping to simplify life by sticking to a healthy, basic diet with less refined food and more basic, local, simple food fare.
Amy good house says
We would love to develop a space at home where my husband and I can devote time to painting and drawing. I would also like to work on organizing the perfect kitchen -we have to gut ours eventually and we want it to be perfect!
Simplify Me Please!!
I want to set new goals for 2011 and reach them!!
I want to organize all my bills and learn how to budget this year!
SIMPLIFY ME! I am trying to organize my finances in 2011. Things like auto-bill pay, and consolidating accounts. And by being more organized with my finances, hopefully I will be able to save more.
Michelle B says
Simplyfy Me! My husband and I are outdoor enthusiasts and are pretty sure we could outfit a family of 4 with anything they would need for any outdoor adventure (there are only 2 of us!) So our challenge is going to be figuring out a way to make things accessible and organized in the basement.
I am current up to my ears cleaning out the one closet shared by my husband and me … would love some tips for organization systems and boxes that work well on the floor of the closet. Would also love some tips about how to store odd-shaped things (handbags, boots, etc).
SIMPLIFY ME!!! I would love to learn how to control clutter and get our office/craft room organized!
I would love to get my personal files at both home and work in a way that works for me. I have yet to figure out how to organize best for me!
Amy Hackbarth says
I am actually in the process of finally organizing our home. I especially need organizing items for all of our open shelving and open faced furniture. I feel less stressed when my things are put away and I can’t see how much of the stuff I actually have!
SIMPLIFY ME! I am usually a very organized person and do not enjoy clutter. Every year between Christmas and New Year’s, I declutter every room of the house. Yesterday I went through the entire kitchen, every cabinet, every drawer, absolutely everything and then gets reorganized. So far today I have done the living room and the dining room. Still have 9 rooms & closets to go, not to mention the storage room in basement!
Brittany I says
I need to organize my home office and just declutter my life in 2011! Any ideas I can get my hands on will help!
Here’s hoping we can keep a (somewhat – ah-hem) simple household (no clutter!) as we welcome a baby in April.
Kristen Miller says
SIMPLIFY ME! With a new baby I could use some help with organization and decluttering (especially important documents).
Simplify Me! I’m looking to organize my kitchen this year so everything is in an easy to reach place and just basically streamline my morning routine so I’m more efficient.
I’d really like to declutter my home this Christmas break and get rid of a lot of stuff!
Simplify me! The front half of our house is somewhat organized, but the back half, including our “office,” is a total mess. This is the year we fix it up!
