Decluttering Tips: 5 Habits for Your Home

New Year’s Resolutions…  I’m only 5 days late (did anyone else feel like the holidays stretched out until yesterday?), but that delay has given me plenty of time to think about these things we commit to doing.  You know, the ones we are determined to accomplish: weight loss, cleaning, and a million other habits… but we simply can’t sustain them.  Don’t get me wrong, I love a good commitment and challenge, but I think there is also something to be said for needing ways to sustain and complete the goals we set out to accomplish.  Like an uncluttered home.  You can try all the millions of tricks for cleaning out every drawer and closet, but if you don’t have a system in place to continue a healthy habit in your home, the chaos can creep back in no time at all.
