This is a great idea to fit into any part of your life you are feeling has the "same old, same old" feel. Try a new exercise or activity if you're getting bored. Try a new fruit or veggie, or just a new recipe if your meals are feeling blah. You can even try something new on the motivational side!!
Keep up on Spark Articles, message board posts and member blogs. I always find something new to do, eat or read about! It gives me some great ideas to change things up, new goals to reach for and sometimes even new rewards to give myself. We're a creative bunch here, we are!!
Kids: Do "gifts for Santa", on Christmas Eve, they get to pick which toys to give to Santa, & leave the sack out along with Santa's cookies & milk. This makes them feel good about giving, & makes space in their room for the new.
Adults: Remember FlyLady's rule, 1 New Item In, Take 1 Old Item Out. That's only if your house, closets, and shelves are already decluttered. If they're crammed full & you need to declutter, however: 2 Out for each 1 New In.
