Then it hit me. Go back to Macy's to the JUNIORS department!!!! Of course!!! So on the way out, we stopped there, and wooohooooo!!!!! I found fabulous stuff!! I'm 34 years old, so I usually feel embarrassed shopping in that area, but the clothes are so much more fabulous! Well, maybe the quality isn't, but they cost less, they're much more stylish, and they fit me better too!
In addition to the ladies department at Macy's, I've also been very disappointed lately with Gap, Old Navy, and even Kohl's (although they're a little better), places I used to shop at very regularly. They're too preppy, boring, and plain Jane. However, I'm very happy with Express, where I used to shop all the time in my early 20s. They have kept with a stylish, age-appropriate, and even sparkly selection of items that I love!

This year, I have carried over my resolution from last year....to get organized!!!! 2011 was the year of the purge for our family, as we renovated our basement into a fabulous play room/living room. We trashed, donated and recycled so much "stuff" that our unfinished portion of our basement is now flooded with empty bins!!!
Over the next few weeks, I am going to post pictures of the other areas in our house that I have attempted to get a handle on in terms of organizing. Jim has been a huge help, as there is no way I could do it alone!
Here is my checklist of what areas are done, in process or not even attempted. I tend to be a cluttery person, so these tasks are often overwhelming and time consuming for me. I do what I can do in the small amount of time I have!!
(Pictures will be up soon!!!)
