Though it's a new year, you might still feel bogged down by the clutter of yesteryear. Between overflowing dresser drawers, entryways with mounds of muddy, left shoes (where did the right ones go?), and the nightmare that is your junk drawer, it’s easy for any home to become overwhelmed with clutter.

For every new item that comes into your home—whether a coffee table, can opener, or piece of mail—one needs to go. This precedent maintains the number of items you own, and also shifts your mindset from “I need more storage space” to “I need less stuff.”
“New sweater? Sell one you are not in love with anymore,” Holli Humber, professional organizer and founder of Holli K Co., says. “New throw pillows? Give away an old set."
Break out your label maker: adding a simple label can greatly impact your home’s organization, as this keeps all of your household members accountable for returning items where they belong.
“Most clutter starts when something doesn’t have a home to return to,” Humber says. “Labels are key to success.”
Humber recommends starting the labeling habit with pantry items, storage totes, dresser drawers, and toiletries.
With the new year, adopt this new organizational motto: if a task takes less than five minutes to complete, do it immediately.

A mini organic garden can give you wonderful vegetables which are pesticide-free and delicious. It is not really necessary to have a large garden area to grow plants or vegetables. All you will ever need in veggies will grow in a reasonably small plot.
Soil tests done in a lab are one way to check the health of your soil. However, the ultimate test is how well your plants are doing. By carefully observing your plants, you can tell which nutrient your plants are lacking. With this information, you can choose which amendments should be added to the soil to maximize the soil health.
The All About Plants category debuted in the Great Pavilion at RHS Chelsea 2022. This year, six gardens supported by Project Giving Back and designed in collaboration with a UK charity, will be on display. A grief garden, a skate park with a focus on edible planting, and a vibrant design that champions good gut health are just a snapshot of the gardens putting plants at the forefront of the design and keeping hard landscape at a minimum.

When I moved to my current apartment I had windows along the south wall perfect for a winter garden, but no patio or yard in which to put my compost. The solution? A compost column built from two recycled two-liter plastic bottles, an idea from the University of Wisconsin’s Bottle Biology Resources Network.
I'm not doing major goals or wild resolutions this year. Come February, they'll just be a laughable distant memory. Instead, my focus for the next 365 days and beyond is creating a sense of peace and serenity in my home.
I’ll admit—I’m not usually a 'New Year, New Me' kind of person. I do my best reinventions in September, around the start of the school year, and I prefer to go all in on spring cleaning right as the weather turns in late March.
My brain decided to be very, very angry on Friday. So angry in fact that I had to go and see a doctor and get some very strong tablets. But even those didn’t make it go. I’m sure like many of you who suffer from migraines you’ll understand what I felt like. Not wanting to go into too much detail, this one was particularly bad and I kept having to chat with the loo. This one even stopped me going to work, so I had to email the client I was supposed to be going to that day, they were very understanding. I tend to get them regularly if I’m unlucky 3-4 times a month, but if I’m lucky just twice a month. I put it down to that time in a woman’s life, but I started to get them just before I turned 40, and now 7 years on they’ve still not improved. They usually last an entire day, but sometimes they last a couple of days as this one seems to be, but they have lasted 4 days before and that gets really tedious.
