Let’s have a little chit-chat about New Year’s Resolutions.

According to the top ten resolutions are:

  1. Spend more time with family and friends
  2. Fit in Fitness
  3. Tame the Bulge
  4. Quit Smoking
  5. Enjoy Life More
  6. Quit Drinking
  7. Get out of Debt
  8. Learn Something New
  9. Help Others
  10. Get Organized

Do any of these sound familiar? Yea, me too.

Except this year I would make my number one resolution: Stress Less.

And since we are already on day four of this new year, I am going to totally win the New Year’s Resolution game and NOT make ANY resolutions.


Instantly less stress.

BUT if I had an actual resolution list, I would also have mastered number ten: Get Organized.

A lot of people are cleaning out, purging and fixing up areas of their home to make room for things or get the things they have into the right place.

Not at our house.

My forever tall and handsome husband finds organizing a stress reducer. (Bless his heart, right?!)

On any given day, I will hear him downstairs organizing something.

Yesterday, when I came downstairs to take a break from sewing I opened my pantry door and found this:

This is how my pantry looks 99.9% of the time. My Mom lovingly named this space our “bomb shelter” because the two of us could live for years in this pantry and never go hungry.

Okay so maybe I personally haven’t mastered the “Get Organized”, but Wade has and it allows me to Stress Less, so I’ll go with it.
