It's the magic night: a new decade dawns at midnight!
Along with the balloons and streamers come the New Years' Resolutions--it's as much a part of the celebration as the noisemakers! Will you resolve to get organized, lose weight, bring order to your home?
This year, resolve to keep those resolutions, not just make them! Try these tips from sister site Organized Christmas to make New Years' Resolutions a vehicle for real personal change:

Three meals a day. Seven dinners a week. From supermarket to pantry, refrigerator to table, sink to cupboard, the kitchen routine can get old, old, old.

So you think businesspeople are the only folks who need a personal planner? Think again: families need an organizer, too, to keep life moving smoothly on the home front!
Whether it's called a household notebook, a home management binder or family organizer, this simple idea saves time, cuts stress, and enhances communication in any-sized family or household.
A standard-sized binder stocked with calendars and schedules, planner forms and inventories, a Household Notebook creates a one-stop information center for busy families. Whether it's a carpool schedule or a co-worker's phone number, the Household Notebook holds the information you need to check each day.
