Way back in 2009, I decided to challenge myself to spend the last few days of the year doing some much-needed organizing and re-grouping in my quilting studio, so that I could start the next year out fresh. I posted my efforts publicly on my blog, and dragged you all along with me, and so many of you joined in! It was comforting (and a bit surprising) to know that I’m not alone in my messes!

I called it The Final Countdown, and it has become an annual thing, and after all these years, I still like to spend the last few days of the year trying to get organized to start the new year out on a good note. It’s something I have come to look forward to each year!

There have gotten to be so many posts, I set up this page to keep them all together, so if you’d like to look back at any of them at any time, they’re easy to find. So here they all are, grouped by year, in case you’d like to repeat any of them. It’s been shocking to me to see that throughout the years, I seem to have a lot of the same organizational issues every single year! Do you?
