    Like you, I see the winding down of the current year and the flip of the calendar page as a time of renewal. I have sufficient closet space but it could be better organized, and I really need to do a clothing purge. Like most women, I tend to wear the same things, so in the week after Christmas while I’m off work, I plan to spend a day taking everything out of the closet and deciding if it’s worth keeping. I’ll Poshmark the items that have good life left to them, and Goodwill the rest. I have a pretty small (but awesome!) place, so I already am very mindful of living with what I love and being really cautious about what I bring home. But of course, there are drawers and under the bed and linen closet shelves (so many beauty items!) that could stand a purge…and who knows, I might find something I bought a while ago that I never used…it will be like shopping in my closet! I could go on, but this pretty much sums up my main priority. Enjoy the holidays!

    I’m definitely working on overhauling my entire closet by the end of the year. So far I’m 70% done. This should hopefully allow me build my personal style in 2018

    I completely agree with those. For me especially the cleaning of the closet applies, but more to items I never wear or things that are too worn out. I know I still hold on to piece I bought when I was 15 and even though it is very flattering they still fit me 9 years later, the state of the fabric and color isn’t that flattering. I also wish I could just snap out of my envy, I personally think that is one of my worst habits. Well, maybe I should make getting rid of it one of my 2018 goals!

    The bad health habits is probably the hardest. You set all these goals the recipes sound great buy new clothes for the gym but then where does the time go to actually achieve this goal. Im a twenty one year old don’t live at home anymore and constantly I set this goal for myself in an effort to change bad habits and constantly I find myself doing poorly at achieving my goal. What are some of your tips for staying on track with eating healthy and working out?

    Wish I had heeded this advice at your age. It’s never too late to start working towards them

    We’re currently working on overhauling our closets and our grocery lists for the upcoming year! Minimalizing and healthful eating are our goals for 2018 :)

    This seems like such a great way to start a fresh year with a clear mind and focussed intentions. I’m definitely giving your tips a try.

    The clothing one is so hard! I gained weight and I’m still not completely ready to let go of the idea that I may return to my old size. Perhaps half way through the year!

    Love this list. An abstract bad things like bad habits and bad thoughts are as important to get rid like physical things to make more space for ourselves.
