Have you recovered from Christmas yet? As I speak we are curled up inside watching big white fluffy snowflakes fall, drinking hot chocolate by our wood stove. It’s quite possibly one of my most favorite ways to soak in the winter season, instead of dreading the months of cold weather that lie ahead. As 2016 winds down, I thought I would share with you my favorite thing to buy as we get ready to start another new year! We all go through New Years resolutions, I assure you, this has nothing to do with that! HA! But I do have one simple household item that I absolutely get giddy with excitement to get my hands on! I shared earlier this week on Instagram, that we are keeping our Christmas decor up just a bit longer than normal this year, as I do some final tweaking to get ready for Better Homes & Gardens to come and take pictures for their special edition magazine for Christmas next year. It’s a dream come true and I will be sure to share more on that soon. So in the meantime, while our house still glows of Christmas, there is one thing I can buy that may help tie me over until I decorate for the new year.
It’s nothing fancy, but my favorite thing to buy for the new year is a new CALENDAR! I know crazy right?! With the start of a new year, putting up the new calendar is one of the best ways I can stay organized. I know it’s a simple act, but it really helps me stay on track with everything going in our family. I’ve already picked up two, and got a cute tiny desk top calendar in my stocking for Christmas, so with three already set up and ready to go, I feel ready to tackle the new year. In case it’s been a while since you’ve shopped for a new calendar, there are some great, more decorative options, that personally make me smile when I see them. So I thought I would share some of my top picks with you today!

I don’t know if it’s considered “old fashioned” yet to still write everything down, and I realize that pretty much every device out there comes with a calendar built in, but nothing feels more productive to me then writing things down on the calendar. It’s right up there with making lists, and writing things down in my planner.
Who says calendars have to be boring to look at?! Whether you are a list maker like me, or just like to have a calendar that’s easy to glance at, nothing is better than feeling just a tiny bit more organized as you start the new year!
