Monthly Resolutions January 2016

FYI, Kim is the inspiration for the Monthly Resolutions posts! Go check out her awesome blog!

So, I'm still contemplating my New Year's Resolutions for 2016, as well as my Word for the year, but in the meantime, here are a few things I hope to accomplish during this first month of 2016:

Reorganize my closet. While I've been getting rid of stuff in my closet, I haven't been keeping is as organized as I should be. I've got pants hanging with tops, shoes on the floor (and actually way more shoes than I have room for, so there's something else to get rid of!), and other miscellaneous junk I didn't know where else to put. I'll be fixing that and making it pretty and functional by February!

Cook more clean meals. The last few months I really slacked on my cooking, going for quick, easy, and more convenient dinners. Yes, it's a LOT of work to "eat clean", but I need to do better this year, starting with this month. Therefore, I vow to cook at least two meals from one of my many Clean Eating magazines each week this month. I'm off to a pretty good start with the Split Pea Soup with Smoked Salmon I made over the weekend! It was delicious, and I highly recommend it!

Do some stamping. I did a little better with my stamping last year, and would like to improve this year. Since El Nino has finally begun, there's a good chance that it'll be raining a LOT over the weekends, so going out and doing stuff will not be a good idea. Doing some stamping will help pass the time, keep me away from the TV, and help me be creative at the same time!

Write some letters. Yes, I'm talking old school, hand-written (okay, maybe typed; my penmanship is dreadful!), put a stamp in it, and drop it in the mailbox letters! I only have 1, maybe 2 friends to write to anymore, but I'd still like to give it a try!

Okay, I think that's good enough for one month! Do you have any resolutions - either for the whole year, or just the next few weeks? Let me know in the comments! Have a great January! Cheers!
