Last week’s school closings and subsequent back to back snow days wreaked havoc on my new year’s resolution to eat healthier, but it was a great starting point on my new year’s resolution to get more organized. The more the wind and snow whipped up outside, the more closets and drawers I tackled inside, in an effort to quell my anxiety and keep myself occupied.
I’ve been obsessed with the idea of a fully functional yet organized home for years – so when Goop featured The Home Edit last year I immediately began to follow them on Instagram and found myself constantly checking out their blog for even more ideas and inspiration. I can’t be the only one who finds looking at perfectly organized pantries and closets incredibly calming…can I?
Then I remembered on of my favorite takeaways from Gretchen Rubin’s Happier podcast, “Outer Order Contributes To Inner Calm.” and used this as the little extra motivation/justification I needed to go ahead and order a bunch of baskets, containers and labels to take my efforts to the next level ala The Home Edit.
Now that these items are starting to arrive, I’m having the best time implementing them into our home. I guess I need to find a similar method for inspiring my desire to curb my sweet tooth!
