With the new year fast approaching, here’s a fun thought from the NY Times:

How many tourists in Times Square does it take to light up the “2009″ sign on New Year’s Eve?

137,228 tourists.

With another New Year approaching, many people are forming new ideas on how they can become more organized in their personal and work lives. Have you thought about organizing your home? From the smallest scale to the largest, organization can go a long way to helping you in your home.

If you are looking for ways to get things together in your home with 2009, start with some organization. The best projects are made successful when taken a little at a time so start with one room or one area and complete it before moving on to others.

Start with cleaning out the clutter. Everything should have a place and if you can’t make or find a place for it, perhaps it doesn’t belong. When you eliminate the clutter, it’s easier to clean and dust on a regular basis and everything looks cleaner and more organized.

When cleaning and organizing, separate the things you don’t know what to do with or can’t find a place for. Later you can go through them and determine if they are to throw away, give away, pack in storage, etc. In the process of cleaning and organizing, you just don’t want them to be in your way.

If you have redecorating plans for 2009, organization will be key in this. Be sure to write down and take drawings or photos of what you plan to do. A redecorating journal is a great way to keep everything organized. You can refer to this notebook for each project and you can post ideas, budgets and goals and more.

Now that the New Year is approaching, it’s a perfect time for starting new, getting organized and cleaning house.

Are you planning to decorate for New Year’s or New Year’s Eve? Whether you want to have a holiday party, a family event or just get yourself in the mood for a great New Year, you can do so with fabulous home decorating tips for the New Year.

Here are some areas you will want to plan to decorate:

• Front door/ outside front of home
• Front walkway/entry way to home
• Dining room table
• Bathrooms/ powder rooms
• Tops of doorways and archways

Now that you know where to decorate, how do you know how to achieve the look you want? First, you will need to decide if you plan to go with a particular theme this year. It may also help to determine what your budget is early on in the planning process.

Organization and planning go a long way in achieving your decorating goals. If having guests over, they will enter through your front door. Other people passing by your home will also see the front of your home so decorations out here are a real plus. This is a real impact area to decorate. You can try evergreen trees, floral arrangements, door decorations such as themed paper or wreaths and more.

When guests come to see you, the front walkway and entry way to the home are the first things they are going to see. Spicing up the front door area is a great way to set the mood for a New Year’s party or just to show that you are getting into the spirit of the occasion.

The dining room table is a great décor choice because you can create centerpieces themed for the occasion and more. A great tablecloth, some aromatic scents and a hand crafted centerpiece can make meals here extra special.

Decorating the bathroom is great because it keeps you in a good, happy mood throughout your day but it’s also beneficial for having an impact on your guests. This is the one room in your home that they will typically be in alone. This gives them time to really look around and “inspect” the area so having a greatly decorating bathroom can make a big impression.

Decorating the tops of doorways and archways is extremely impactful and practical. This is especially nice if you’re decorating in a small space such as an apartment. Because fancy or cluttery decorations get in the way, putting them in doorways, walls and archways give you more space.

Whatever your plans for the New Year, use these decorating ideas to set the mood and the tone for your holiday event. Happy New Year!
