Hi, it's Caro, the pet therapist from the Pampered Pets mystery series. I don’t know about you all but I for one love the fresh start of a new year! I love thinking about the possibilities that lay in the months ahead and I especially love the blank pages of a new calendar.
But then I’m a bit of an office supplies geek and January offers a great opportunity to shop for fun things to help me get organized for the year. There’s the need for a new calendar, maybe some folders, and, of course, notebooks. Why I’m just like a kid in a candy store!
This year I picked up an adorable wall calendar from our local animal shelter, which means I not only ended up with a great calendar but I was also able to support a great cause. I also grabbed some colorful paperclips, a couple of notebooks and a couple of adorable dachshund pens.
I'll clear out old files and set things up for the new year and add standing appointment to my new calendar. How about you? Do you love getting organized for the year ahead? Do you have to have that special calendar or notebook to start the year? Or is there something else you do to get you started off on the right foot?
Share your tips on what you do to get organized for the year ahead in the comments below and I'll do a random drawing for a couple of things I picked up on my office supply shopping spree! (Don't forget to include your email so I can contact you about where to send your prize.)
You might have noticed the dachshund theme in my shopping. That's because the latest adventure in the Pampered Pets Mystery Series is The Girl with the Dachshund Tattoo.
