Refresh and Refine and Refurnish

                            Organizing, Refreshing and Refining your Home

Refurnish, refresh and refine is what I want to accomplish in January. Start the new year right with putting away all your Christmas decorations in clear plastic bins and marked with the contents inside. Try using a label gun and print in large block letters to help with labeling your bins. This way next Christmas, it will be easy to quickly identify the contents inside.


Now moving on to your kitchen counters. If you love to cook like I do, organize and sort your cooking utensils in a crock by material, such as all wooden spoons in one, all metal wire whisks, spatulas, tongs and or spoons in another. Only put in utensils you use on a daily basis; the rest can go in a utensil drawer.

Another room needing attention is the bathroom. Throw out your old and flimsy containers and try using eco-friendly baskets or containers for organizing all your toiletries, and packaged soaps. Or try them in your home office for a cozy, comfortable homey look. I use them to store my glasses, office accessories, phone, tape measure, clips etc. Lastly, use containers in your great room or living room to organize your coffee table. Add magazines, tv remote controls, iPad etc. Believe me, you'll feel so much calmer and happier when you have everything in its own place.

Happy January!
