January is National Organization Month – and what a coincidence, because I’m always inspired to get my life cleaned up and more organized at the beginning of a new year! I moved into a loft several months ago and I’m still trying to get everything right where I want it. After doing a search for some great organization ideas, I found this collection of tips. They are so easy and most of them are quick fixes. Click through the slideshow to see what I found!
