Fresh Starts are why September is my New Year.  It’s the end of the summer and the start of a brand new school year.  To me, it’s a fresh start – time to get back to work, clean out, rearrange furniture, make next Summer’s plan, and get ready for my favorite time of the year…Fall.

What I love about September is the newness.  My daughter’s new classroom, new teacher, and a new year. Our once bustling house is now quiet, and I am inspired to clean up my desk from Summer’s clutter, clean out my closet, and take charge of the things I want to get done.  Ahhhh, my normal exercise routine is back and I’m finding that little extra time for me.

It’s energizing to organize our school calendar, plan out my daughter’s school Annual Fund Campaign, get the school Art Docent program underway ( yes, I volunteer too!), and get everything ready to move forward into Fall and Winter.

My favorite item that helps me get my organizing game on is my Living Well Planner from Livingwellspendingless.com.  Thank you Ruth Soukup for your inspiring blog!

Happy Fall everyone…get inspired!
