We’ve made it to a new calendar year, and for many, that means making New Year’s resolutions. Is “getting organized” on your list of goals and resolutions this year? Well, we at A Fresh Space fully support that!
What does the holiday season mean to you? Family time? Travel? Stress? More STUFF coming into your home and life than you know what to do with?
Have you ever stood in front of a project you want to complete—organizing a room in your home, perhaps—and not known where to start? Maybe you stared at the room for a long time, became overwhelmed at the thought of trying to tidy it up, and then you just shut the door and walked away, feeling defeated and frustrated.

In our commercialized society, shopping has become so much more than just purchasing the things we need to survive. For many of us, it’s a means of entertainment, and the “thrill of the hunt” keeps us coming back for more.
As busy people, we often think in terms of tackling big projects and huge lifestyle changes in one fell swoop. But I have found that big changes in our lifestyle, habits, and behavior are, more often than not, the result of lots of little changes.
Moving into a new house brings forth many emotions: excitement, sadness, and often, anxiety. You’re ready to move to a new place, but sad that you’re leaving your current home. With that comes a lot of stress.
