2013: Project Organization

2012 was the year of the baby.  Baby Ella to be exact.  We pretty much started 2012 with the news of our pregnancy.  It was an amazing year but with a new baby, a part-time job, a home and a husband to care for I definitely need to implement some new tactics to optimize my time and money.  So 2013 will be my year of organization.  Fortunately for me Pinterest and the blogosphere make it really easy to get started.

These are the major areas in my life that need organization:

- All things kitchen (menu planning/grocery shopping/cabinets/pantry)
- Storage (basement/closets)
- Home cleaning and maintenance
- All things baby
- Photos and memory items
- Blogging/Etsy/knitting (basically all the time I spend on the computer - definitely need to cut down on that)

Here are some ideas I found on Pinterest (love that place) that I will hopefully be referencing as I work to organize my life this year.  There are so many smart and creative people out there.  Glad they share their great ideas.....
