I start every year the same way, with a desire to get things super shiny deep cleaned and organized and I always start with the fridge. At the beginning of 2015, I set out to tackle the Top 10 areas in our home that needed the most attention. I completed nine – and the last one – the cords, didn’t make it as we dealt with family issues around that time.
I’m proud to report that those areas have stayed relatively clean and, throughout the year, the effort to bring less stuff into our home has been pretty well maintained. The biggest ‘problem area’ is still the toys and paper clutter is a never-ending battle that I constantly have to keep up with or I’ll drown. I switched all magazine subscriptions to digital this year and donated a mountain of magazines I had saved over the years (except some of my Oprah (I’ve been a subscriber since Day 1!) or a few special edition cooking mags) and that made a huge difference. Now, I read most of my magazines on my iPad with the Zinio app. I never thought I’d enjoy reading magazines or books on my iPad, but I’m a true convert. I still love a gorgeous hardcover book, especially cookbooks, but now I buy lots of books to read on my Kindle app for iPad.
