Weekly Poll: Happy New Year edition!

Happy (almost) New Year! Or for those of you on the other side of the globe, Happy (actual) New Year!


This week's question was inspired by today's date on the calendar. A modern invention, but I like it.

Do you have any New Year's resolutions, goals or plans you're willing to share? What do you hope to improve on or change in 2015?

For me, my #1 goal/resolution is to get organized. Both my physical space and digital space. Would you believe that I have over 2,000 unread emails in my blog inbox? A lot of them are newsletters and stuff that can probably just be deleted, but when your inbox gets to that level of disarray it's easy for real e-mails to get lost. So if you wrote to me recently and I didn't reply yet... uh... sorry.

As for physical organization, we do have a spare room that I use as a home office/makeup/dressing room, but oh maaaaan is it in chaos right now. Too much stuff, not enough space. In the short term my goal is to get rid of some stuff and put everything back into order, but my long-term goal is to come up with a system to ensure that clutter won't stick around for too long. Shredding junk mail right as I get it? Hurling empty shipping boxes out the window with a scream? Something.

With that said, I'll be taking a mini blogging break for the next few days to get a jumpstart on my new life of orderliness. I'll still be checking comments and e-mails (and working my way through the old ones), plus maybe popping in on social media, but don't expect any new posts here until the 4th or 5th of January or so.

So! Here's wishing all of you a happy (and safe) new year, whether you choose to comment on this post or not. Thanks for reading, and I'll see you on the other side! :)

  1. Happy New Year! 2,000 emails is crazyyyyy. I have ocd so I have to read and/or delete new ones right away. I need to declutter my house too especially my closets.

  7. I feel like my New Year's resolution should be similar to yours. My space is such a disaster zone. I have shipping boxes flattened and crammed between bookshelves, and makeup that is just spilling out of my drawers. I need to deal with the mess before it even happens, really. Good luck to both of us, I guess!
    Happy New Year, Rebecca! :)

  8. It sounds like your goals are right there with my goals! Good luck! I've been trying to do small bits of organizing each day. It's helping my space, and I'm not feeling overwhelmed.

  9. Hooray for new furniture! I could really use some more drawers. Maybe after I clear more stuff away completely...

  10. Haha yes to flattened boxes crammed between things and makeup spilling out of drawers. Definitely my style as well. I had a "fun" time going through one of those drawers and throwing out a bunch of ancient mascara though, so... yay? Good luck to you if you end up tackling your own mess!

  11. Bits and pieces is a good way to do it. I try to clean for 20 solid minutes or so, take a break, then do more later so I don't get completely overwhelmed. Good luck to you too!

  12. My husband keeps saying "we need to go room by room and decide what goes where and get organized." It'll happen eventually. Hopefully this year!
