Resolution: Get Organized

Sharon May writes in the Cedar City Review, "The second most popular New Year's resolution, according to the U.S. Department of Stupid Statistics, is to be more organized. That's why Wal-Mart's sales of plastic storage tubs exceed the entire GNP of Bolivia during January.

Having containers, we don't have to actually throw anything away – just 'organize' our stuff in matching Rubbermaid tubs. Then, slowly during the year, when you ask yourself, 'Where's that Barry Manilow Classic Love Songs CD?' or 'What did I do with that electric rutabaga slicer?' you start rummaging through your storage containers. Before you know it, everything's back inside your house and your 2006 clutter has returned."
