January 7
Day 7 - The Unmentionables! Last week it was the sock drawer so don't tell me you didn't see this one coming! Your ten minutes today is dedicated to your undies drawer. Get all your underwear onto your bed - discard the old, soiled, ripped, "I'll-never-wear", Bombay bloomer or blown-elastic models. Sort the rest and commit today to wearing some of those classier undergarments. Are you with me? #31Days2GetOrganized

Paperwork Part 2: Here's a way to start afresh in 2013 with a clear desk and a simple way to manage paperwork - but it demands you commit to a SYSTEM and a ROUTINE. Take a deep breath, check out the video and let me know if this serious challenge will work for you.

(this is going to take me more than 10 minutes :) )

And while you're at it, be sure to get rid of anything that's been in there longer than two years, or that's been with you for the last three house moves!! Let me know the oddest thing you uncovered!

Day 14 - T shirt check in: How's your closet? T shirt heaven or T shirt hell?
Tackle the T's: Everyone has more T shirts than they need and today's the day to tame them! First, look at the piles of folded T's in your closet - chances are that the bottom third of the piles are shirts that you don't like that much and seldom wear. Let them go! Put like colors together, fold them all uniformly and be sure only to hold onto the T's that you love! How many did you let go - number please!
