Getting Sorted for the New Year

Inspired by a blog post titled "Five easy ways to get organised!" over at Retro Age Vintage Fabrics, I decided to buy the book Sorted by Lissanne Oliver and have a go at organising myself.

I think it's a great way to start the new year, getting organised and clearing out clutter to make space for the new, including new ideas and new creativity. I love the idea of having life running more efficiently so I don't get bogged down in so much stuff.

Since I am currently drowning in paper I have started in the study. The plan is to do a little at a time and eventually get to my workroom. Wish me luck.

Oh and did I mention that I bought a copy of the book at the Camberwell markets for $3? Well I did. How's that for a bargain?

drowning in paper sounds familiar! I hope this book helps! I know I certainly need something like it too. It's interesting, I'm finding people getting "organised" and "sorted" all over blogland today. Must be the season to get "sorted" he he he. I'm feeling the need growing in me too. :) Good luck!!!

Thanks for the encouragement. I think it's that time of the year for sorting. People want a fresh new start to the year.
