The Last 31 Days Of 2008: Do The Thing You’ve Been Putting Off

I bought a lamp at a thrift store for $1.95 over the summer. It’s a beautiful thing — white porcelain with tiny gold stars along its edges. The only problem was that it didn’t turn on when I plugged it in. The lamp sat at home, useless, until I finally got fed up and went to Home Depot. A nice older man taught me about rewiring, and I even learned how to do an underwriters knot! Take the next couple weeks to complete the project you’ve had on hold for ages. Just do it, okay?

The Last 31 Days Of 2008: Stop Getting Catalogs

Some catalogs are worth their weight in paper, others are a waste. I get an average of two L.L. Bean catalogs a month, and while I adore them and the fact that they sell plaid duct tape (amazing, right?!), I really don’t need to see the same sweaters, duck boots, and alarm clocks multiple times each month. Just think of those poor trees that were cut down to make all those L.L. Bean catalogs! So, I am going to call up my favorite purveyor of monogrammed tote bags and tell them to stop sending me glossy books every month. You should do the same — or go to Catalog Choice and communicate with companies about what catalogs you no longer wish to receive.

Dental hygiene is important, people. If you don’t wash your face for a while, you might sprout a few zits. Those go away in time. If you stop brushing your teeth, they might fall out. Tooth loss is forever. Use the next 21 days to develop a habit that will keep your chompers in business. If you’re lazy like me, try dental flossers, which even come in the shape of dinosaurs! Plaque is not sexy. Floss. Keep reading »

The Last 31 Days Of 2008: Organize Or Clip Your Magazines

I’m a collector of many things, like shoes, Barbie dolls and magazines (I still have the first issue of Lucky). I never really notice my magazine stacks until I’m trying to find space on my bedroom floor for a new shoe box. Obviously, my boudoir is cluttered, so this month I’m going to go through all my mags and only keep the really important ones. I’ll also clip out any stories, photos or covers I like. And while I’m at it, I’ll create an inspiration board of my clippings, lifting the clutter off the floor and onto an organized bulletin board. I think this is the perfect step for you to also get a jump on your New Year’s de-clutter resolution.

The Last 31 Days Of 2008: Eat Whatever The Hell You Want

Most of us, upon the arrival of the new year, swear to begin a nutritional regimen Madonna would of and take up jazzer-yoga-lates or some other new fangled workout routine.

Regardless, for the, now, 30 days remaining this month, just embrace all the delicious food and beverages being shoved in your face at holiday parties, dinner dates, and mom and dad’s house. You have all of next year to feel crappy about yourself with Glamour‘s help! For now, eat like a fat kid let loose in Magnolia Bakery and drink like an alcoholic swimming in a river of vodka.
