I decided to tackle TWO cabinets this week–UNDER THE SINK & ABOVE THE FRIDGE.
Here we go!
I’ve been dreading these two because they required a lot of work. Buuuuuuut somehow this lady powered through. I will say at one point I looked at all the piles of stuff around my kitchen and wondered how I would ever get it done. That’s when you just gotta GO FOR IT. The end result is always worth it. ALWAYS.
You know all of those Organizing Goals I had for 2012? Well….I have to scrap some of those goals because….we’re MOVING!
We are excited to be moving but LORDY it’s A LOT of work to move a house. We’ve never moved a whole house before! We’ve also never moved with a child before. Wowzers.
Right now I’m in the OMG I have too much stuff and I’m packing up my entire life and starting over phase.
I’m tackling my Organization Goals 2012 list! I’m starting with this item:
CLEAN OUT MY PURSE MORE OFTEN
Let’s get started! This is my fantastic Kelly Moore purse/camera bag that I’ve been using over 6 months (that’s a long time for me!). What I like about this purse is that it has PLENTY of pockets. I always like that in a purse; it draws me in! The problem is…there might be TOO many pockets! Crazy, right?Because I never set guidelines for myself of what goes into each pocket, I lose things CONSTANTLY. Quick! Ask me where my cellphone is! I couldn’t tell you. Oh wait…it’s prolly at the bottom of my bag because I’m too lazy to put it in the same compartment EVERY TIME.
Not only am I going to clean out my purse today, I’m going to give myself some rules for organizing!
Aaaaaaaaaaand we’re done! Not quite. I still have cabinets to organize and tupperware containers to go through, but this is what my office looks like right now. I might want to paint this space and put framed artwork on the wall but for now I’m gonna consider it close to being done.
Here’s what it looked like last week:
FACT: I spend A LOT of time at the computer in my office.
ANOTHER FACT: If my desk isn’t clean & organized, I’m a basket-case.
For the past few weeks I’ve been tripping over boxes in order to check my email until FINALLY! I HAD ENOUGH. I slowly started organizing the space this past week. I spent a good 7 hours working in there yesterday while I was working from home and I’m pretty close to done. BUT! I want to wait until I’ve organized the inside of the closets and cabinets before I show the big reveal. I also need to make sure there are no more office boxes to unpack! That would be super tragic if there were!
Now that I’m starting over in our new house, I’m starting RIGHT!! While I was unpacking a few weeks ago, I started to put stuff that belonged in the linen closet in the linen closet with the intention of straightening it up later. Later was yesterday. The linen closet got a makeover!
Is there a High Straightenence person in your life that you need to shop for? Are you waiting til the last minute? Don’t do that! Are you a High Straightenence person who desperately wishes there was a list full of geeky organizing items to give your friends/family/loved ones direction on what to get you this year? Let these lists be your guide! Because we’re getting close to the Xmas, I’ve hand-picked some awesome gifts from Amazon. They ship fast. Now….GET ON IT!
This winter I’ll be down in Texas visiting my fiance’s family. My fiance is really into football, so as a treat my fiance’s brother and sister-in-law are taking us to a Houston Texans game. Problem is I’m not really the jersey and jeans type. What’s a cute outfit that I can wear to the game where I can show my team spirit but still be stylish?
