Hope your New Year has kicked off to a great start friends! Anyone else in organization mode due to coming off the stress of the holidays?

With the tree and holiday decor finally down and put away, I am itching for some organization I can easily do myself. If you’re looking for some motivation to get your home organized, find some inspiration from a few of our amazing bloggers who shared how they checked off their first DIY project of the year in their homes, by re-vamping their closet spaces with the help of Rubbermaid and Lowe’s. Rubbermaid has a line of DIY closet organizers called HomeFree that are sold at Lowe’s. One blogger even made-over her laundry room! The before and after pictures speak for themselves, so don’t take our word for it. Head over to their lovely spaces and check out their creativity that is sure to get your creative juices flowing. Cheers to starting the New Year more organized!
