For once in my lifetime, I am doing pretty well with my New Year's Resolutions. I thought I would fill you in since it has been almost a month since I swore I would change my ways! If you need refreshing on my NYR's, please check out this post.
I have been doing my best on the organization front. Some of my new tactic do include some pink and green finds, including these precious file folders that I found at T.J. Maxx the other day for $2 for a set of 10 (continue to read to see how I am doing on controlling the shopping). My closet is the most organized that I have ever seen it. I have everything color coded! And last but not least, I have started using my iCal calendar, which has proven to be invaluable. I always know where I am supposed to be when. Here is a little preview of my organized desk...
On the job front... I don't officially start until May, but they have me doing a lot of pre-planning. I have kept up with the the work load pretty well, and it makes me get more excited every day. I thank God constantly that I have a stable job to go to right after graduation. In this economy, I know that it is becoming a rare find.
Last, and certainly one of the hardest NYR's to keep up with is my shopping addiction. I have done EXTREMELY well with this one. As you have seen on the blog, occasionally I will pick up some inexpensive happy's, but that doesn't break the bank account. I finally convinced myself that I do not need anything else to put on my body and that includes shoes (there is a post in the works for that situation). I want to keep the junk (oops... I mean things) to a minimal because I will have to schlep it away from here at the beginning of May. Yes, it is hard to resist the sales right now; but I have managed to control myself fairly well.
