Hello 2017! With the new year brings new resolutions. One goal that may top your list is organizing your home. However, this can be easier said than done! Cleaning closets, organizing the entry, and clearing the clutter takes planning, time and motivation. In the spirit of getting organized in 2017, I’m sharing 5 simple ways to get organized.
ONE :: HOOKSsimple entry with hooks and bench

Entryways are a dumping ground for coats, shoes and bags. Make the space more orderly with wall hooks to hang items. I love this example by Coco.Kelley.

TWO :: BASKETSorganized linen closet with baskets

Linen closets can get messy quickly if they are not planned out. I recommend baskets with tags to keep the space well organized. Here Ballard Designs uses chic woven baskets house toilet paper and bedding.

THREE :: PIN BOARDScork wall // home office

I’m a huge fan of pin boards to keep important papers organized and top of mind. This cork wall is not only a great way to keep announcements, invites and important documents organized, it’s a decor statement. Love!

FOUR :: CLEAR STORAGE

Acrylic storage is a favorite of mine for obvious reasons – you can see everything inside saving so much time. I love this example of acrylic drawer front for a closet I spotted on My Domaine.

FIVE :: TRAYS

I love trays for organizing. I use them throughout the house to corral items. Above are two examples of how I use trays in my own home. The first is a ceramic tray to house bathroom essentials and the second is a simple wooden tray to keep oils, spices and other kitchen items organized beautifully.

Hello 2014 + New Year Goals

hello 2014 --goal setting

It’s here. 2014. The new year fills us with hope, gives us optimism and provides us a fresh start. Now (today) is the perfect time to jot down your goals, hurdles you’d like to overcome and map out those dreams you’ve been afraid to even whisper.

I love this “ultimate list” of goals, however it’s too general. Statistics show that by February, you will have broken more than 90 percent of the resolutions you made and that’s a big bummer. So here are some helpful steps to achieve your goals in 2014!

I love this quote too because life is full of surprises, ups & downs and monkey wrenches. When change occurs, review your list of new year goals to make adjustments to stay on course! And aim at staying positive. Negativity is just a downward spiral.

Also, a huge thank you to William Sonoma’s Designer Marketplace for selecting Simplified Bee’s Designer Kitchens board on Pinterest as a top ten to follow! I’m honored to be included!

Happy 2014,

Setting Goals :: 2013

Happy 2013! We welcome you and the opportunity for a fresh start. What better way to ring in the new year than by setting goals and resolutions. Whether it’s to lose weight, get in shape, eat healthier, get a new job, save/make more money or my favorites, get organized and give back – now’s the time!

goal setting quote C.S. Lewis

However, statistics show that by February, you will have broken more than 90 percent of the resolutions you made. While it may not be easy or overnight, here are some helpful steps to make it easier for you to reach your goal and stick with it:

Be Specific :: Describe what you want to accomplish in detail and write it down. Many studies have proven that the simple act of writing your goals down greatly improves your chances of accomplishing them. Also, let your friends and family know your goals. They can help support you during rough times.

Be Realistic :: Set goals you are capable of achieving. Instead of setting ten new year’s resolutions, you may want to limit it to two t o three that are attainable.

Be Disciplined :: Understand that it may take energy, sacrifice and plain old hard work to obtain your goal. Breaking up a larger goal into smaller tasks can help keep you motivated and on track.

Be On Time :: Establish a timeline and set completion dates for your goals and tasks. This should also be written down and will help you to stay focused.

Be Rewarded :: Give yourself a small reward after accomplishing a goal. Celebrating your success will keep you motivated and will help you keep those new year resolutions.

Hello 2013
