When it comes to fabulous organization a la New Year's Resolutions, it all starts in the heart of the home.

Now that the kitchen in the Beaufort house is getting actual sheetrock this week (Woo Hoo!!) we're starting to think about how we're going to keep it sparkling and organized. Opening cabinets and seeing fabulous baskets like these from Furniture Company 247 makes us so happy!

Mom was doing a little Etsy research -- they have everything on there, don't they? -- and, while I recently purchased a gaggle of cute chalkboard labels on there for my house, Mom found these for Beaufort. They are the same beautiful blue as the paint and the font is great!

Opening a cabinet that looks like that makes the entire day feel better. It's like a giant yoga breath!

For my pantry and cabinets at home, I decided to go with hermetically sealed jar after jar after jar. You can really put anything in a jar. Rice, flour, sugar, seaweed, Amy's organic bunnies, teething biscuits... It's kind of awesome. I got mine from The Container Store -- Love that place!
I'm a huge tea drinker, so I've been trying to come up with solutions for all those little packages. I found a pretty tea box that now lives in one of my drawers, but, in the spirit of all that matching glass, I'm switching to loose leaf teas. They feel so elegant! Kind of like a great wine...
We didn't decide to go with open shelving for the Beaufort house, but that doesn't mean that the interior shelving can't look as fantastic as if it were on display all the time.

Even mismatched sets look orderly when they're in neat rows.

This is such a fantastic, space-saving idea for silverware. Plus, you can just grab the handle without getting the silverware all germy.

Dream. Pantry. Nothing else to say.

Those little hooks are so fantastic! No more digging around in the drawers for measuring cups...
There's nothing like a built-in silverware drawer.
Glass canisters are such a clean, classic look. Plus, having all the staples right there on the counter is so easy.
This gorgeous open shelving proves that everything doesn't have to match to look organized.
This is so creative! I'm not sure that we would ever eat that many apples or potatoes, but it sure does look nice. We're getting so excited for how neat and tidy we're going to be in the new year. How about you?
Happy 2013, friends! We are so incredibly humbled by your visits, comments and kindness all year round. This year we hope that you keep all your resolutions and that all your dreams come true!
