Time to Get Organized
A while back I made a list of things I needed to get done around the house and once the holidays were over I decided it was time to get it all done. At the top of my list was of course to get organized!! I am an organizer in life, I love it and I get really excited about it, so this was a fun project for me to start with.
First off our living room was in serious need of a redo. We typically watch TV in this area as well as this is the kids' play area. It is gated off so the kids can play as they please without getting into anything that they shouldn't be. Before our redo we had a bench toy box that the kids' toys were thrown into. After a few birthdays and holidays the "toy box" was over flowing with toys and could never be closed. It drove me crazy how messy this area looked even when all the toys were put away.
To help this area I purchased a cubical shelf unit and fabric containers from Target and the area looks SO much better, well at least when the toys are actually put away and cleaned up that is. Check out the before and after pictures:
Next I worked on our closet which is constantly a work in progress. Since it is used and thrashed on a daily basis it is hard to really get it perfectly clean and "together". But before I reorganized it we had stuff everywhere, nothing had a particular home and the shelves were not organized at all. I literally just did some cleaning, putting things away and purchased tons of plastic bins to organize all the stuff into. It is not a huge looking difference because there is so much stuff in our closet but it is SO nice for everything to have a place and for it to look cleaner. Check out the before and after pictures:
Besides our closet and the living room I did some organizing in the kids' dressers, closets and the kitchen and it feels so great to have things more in order around here..
