It’s the end of the year and with 2018 just a few days away I’m already itching to begin some of my New Year’s Resolutions. I always have a handful of goals to conquer and if I don’t achieve them all I don’t hold it against myself. As long as I complete at least one and attempt the others I’m satisfied.
This year the goals are simple:
- Become healthier
- Stick to a budget
I’ve already begun on the declutter aspect of my resolution. Below are the “before” and “after” photos of what I call my pantry (it’s a little cupboard that I picked up a while ago at Target).
I think my favorite part of my “before” photo is how the Monk cookie jar is turned toward the corner, like he is ashamed of the environment he is forced to stay in. He seems much happier in the second photo, all cleaned up.
I know it will take a while to get to every area in my home but I’ll keep everyone updated as I move about from one area to another.
I am an admitted pack rat so overcoming my sentimentality towards everything is my biggest obstacle. Oh, and a husband who brings home car parts that aren’t for any vehicle we own that he just knows he can sell online. <Sigh>
What are your resolutions for the New Year?
