New Year’s Organizing Revolution Tips


Yesterday I, along with six other bloggers, introduced you to the New Year’s Organizing Revolution challenge that we’ll be running for the entire month of January, starting next Monday!

Essentially we’re looking to help you in your endeavor to get spaces in your home organized by providing some incentive via voting and prizes!  I think it’s going to be fun.  We aren’t requiring you to post before shots or anything, simply link up each week with your organized space and we’ll take care of the rest.  We tried to make it as uncomplicated as possible.

To help you succeed, two of my organizing gal pals wrote posts today that will assist you with the challenge.

For those that don’t have a blog, Becky at Organizing Made Fun, wrote about how you can use Pinterest to participate.

How to Link your Pinterest Board to a link party


And Anna, from Ask Anna, wrote about how you can make your photos shine in challenges such as these.  She’s got a lot of great photo tips for beginners that you’ll want to check out.



Monday the challenge will begin and you’ll have until Thursday to link up your organized space.  Voting then begins each Friday morning and ends each Sunday afternoon.  We’re starting with our offices or essentially any area of your home that collects paper that piles for miles.

If you haven’t printed out the challenge calendar yet, you can do so here.

Thanks everyone!

Will you be participating?

    Hurrah! I’m super stoked. I probably won’t link up but I will be doing the challenges. Too bad I just reorganized my office area…and I didn’t take any before or after pics…boo…. Oh well! I will just do a different area instead. Love your website it is helping me stay sane since we recently moved to a very large log cabin to a very small apartment. :) oh yeah, plus an addition of a baby. Can you say “toy purge?” Can’t wait for Monday to get here!

      Hi Becka, every Monday morning I will put up the linky for the challenge for everyone to add their link for that week.

        I’m lost as to how to link up! Did not see any linky posted on Monday. Where do I go to see the linky?

        • Laura says

          Oh so sorry Daria I didn’t catch your question. Tomorrow’s challenge (kitchen) will be up at 6:00 am PST. It gets pushed down below Menu Plan Monday so you might have to scroll down.

    Count me in! I have more ideas for my home office than I can get done by Thursday, but I know I can get it much more organized than it is now :)
