January is officially the Loerke GO (get organized) Month. We're firm believers in clearing things out that don't matter so we can make room for things that do. Here's a good rule of thumb to remember as you decided what to keep, toss, and give away: try and only hang onto things that A) you need B) you use and C) bring you joy. If they don't do these three things then they're probably just contributing to clutter.
One simple thing I try and do in January is to unsubscribe to all of my junk emails. I promise, you'll feel 15 pounds lighter and you won't even have to run around the block. If you're looking for a little bigger project we'd encourage you to consider making the paperless transition and sign up for Evernote. It's free and will change. your. life. We've been fans of Evernote for a long time and haven't needed a filing cabinet in over three years. It's glorious.
We'd love to know any organizational tips you have to help us become better organized this month. Currently we're still working on tackling our basement. Praise the Great Lion of Judah for shelving and clear storage bins!
