Take the 13 Before 2013 Challenge + Five New Years Resolutions.

I constantly make lists, and New Years is the time of celebration for the list-lover.I'm excited to take my blog and business to the next level. It's a great time to push the envelope and improve. BUT FIRST, I'm going to push myself to finish 13 tasks before the end of the year! It's not too late to...

Post Holiday madness scene at my place. People still need to get their Bieber swag! Ha!

1. Finish photographing all the merchandise stored at my apartment for Etsy.
2. Take the merch to my storage room, (tour soon!) clean/organize the room.
3. List at least 50 more items on Etsy.
4. Refresh the Thrift Core blog layout a bit, making content easier to navigate.
5. Plan and write blog content for January, start one month ahead!
6. Organize/purge the credenza craft mess craziness.
7. Organize/purge the closet craft mess craziness.
8. Kitchen purge, organization, and deep clean.
9. Re-do my favorite business goal guide.
10. Order some essential oils, spices, and other kitchen/cleaning goodness.
11. Clean the House Top to Bottom!  At least this one is DONE! Will dust again, though...
12. Plan blog content as far in 2013 as possible.
13. Relax and have FUN on New Years Eve!

1. Put things away as SOON as you're done with them!
2. READ through my entire library and donate/sell it off.
3. MOVE more every day!
4. Produce the best quality with EVERYTHING I do.
5. More TIME for friends and family!

I haven't done bad in 2012, I finally organized and cleaned hundreds of pieces of merchandise, launched my online shop, and gotten my home clutter completely under control. It was a year of much needed personal cleaning after years of working non-stop. Now I'm ready to dive into work and random traveling adventures! I'm launching lots of exciting things in 2013. Thank you for following along!

  1. Great goals! My resolutions are a lot like yours. Good luck next year.

    1. Putting things back where they belong is a universal struggle. :) Good luck to you, too.

  2. Today I'm attacking my pantry and getting it organized.I've just been throwing things in there since Thanksgiving and it's a hot mess.I've already pulled out the cans-I forsee alot of future meals using tomatoes...and jello,lol.
    My theme for 2013 resolutions is "I wish to be happy, healthy, wealthy, and wise."It includes goals like making time to be more creative,eating better and continuing exercising,what I want to do with Ebay,and to read some books I've had on my list for awhile.

    1. All great goals, I love a good pantry purge and purging in general. Your theme is my theme too, down to the happy and healthy part :)

  3. Your list could be my list (except for number 11 -- congrats on that!).

    1. I COULD dust the ceilings and walls and scrub between the grout of every tile in the bathrooms and kitchen but I think the house-wide dusting, moping, purging, and sweeping was good enough ;)

      Good luck on your list.

  4. omg Van. You are always takin' to the next level :)

    1. Aw, thanks Megan. I'm working super hard at it! Gotta hit it!

  5. Hello from the UK and a very happy Christmas to you. We have a second hand store or thrift store as I know you call them in the USA. Great blog, you have so much interesting stuff on here, well done. I will be sure to come back regularly. Please check out my blog, it is new so not much content on yet.

    1. Good luck with your shop, and thanks for sharing!

  6. I just reorganized all of my craft items today and blogged about it! I love your idea of working ahead on your blog and I think I will try that, too. I will have to go visit your etsy store.
    Thank you for sharing your ideas--it's very motivating to hear someone else is kicking it into gear.
    Good luck finishing everything on your list!

    1. I'll have to take a look at that for inspiration. I always plot blog posts ahead of time, these posts always do better, read better, and it's just a big help with time management too. :)

  7. Our Rescued Art business has been focused on line by selling via our website. In 2013, I hope to, excuse me, will speak with owners of antique stores and vintage B & Bs about buying our art. I think it will be good to personalize our business life a bit more.

    Best to the bloggers. Toast to the thrifters.

  8. I'm obsessed with lists. Yours are awesome and inspiring. I definitely need to clean my entire apartment this weekend. Yikes!

    1. I cleaned mine but gotta do it again today, it's a high-traffic home! D'oh!
