But first you would probably like to see our disaster. For us, its really the small spaces that have gone awry (and maybe Silas' room, shhh don't tell). So be prepared - these are not pretty shots. This is real life people. Up first, our pretty secretary desk...isn't it nice?
But if we peek inside, we will see a different story...
Whoops - chaos abounds. This is one of those areas that I don't think I have even looked in or used in several months because I know its a total disaster and I don't even want to try. So here it has sat all neglected and over stuffed. I have no idea what is even in this thing. The only thing this desk has been used for recently is for stuffing stuff in that we didn't know where else to put. Well things will be a changing soon little desk.
Whose up for some crazy drawer photos? All of you? Great!...below is our kitchen junk drawer. Every house has to have one right? We have like 50 (not really, but really).
Below is our beside drawers. Justin's and Mine respectively. Can't really tell a difference here - we are both good at this.
Next up is some crazy shelf
organizing clutter. This cabinet is in our main bathroom and its another place that I haven't really done anything with since we moved in except for to shove stuff in. Mysteries abound in there.
In the back of the house we have some shelves. I have tried to slowly work on getting this spot organized. Its not too bad (compared to the rest) but it still needs a ton of work. I just don't think this space is being utilized correctly so I have some changes in mind.
I also have a little idea for hiding this hot water heater - updates to come.
So, if you are wondering - I have begun my quest! Woohoo. I must add, I'm not trying to achieve perfection here. I know our home is lived in and a perfectly clutter free home is kind of ridiculous to assume. I would just like to achieve better function - and also to not avoid some spots in our house because they are in chaos. If I can get some systems working then I think we can maintain a decent level of controlled chaos...hopefully.
Oh, if any of you are journeying on similar quests I must tell you that Michael's is currently running a sale on all of their organization systems - which includes all bins, baskets and boxes! I picked up some the other day - all buy one, get one free! That's like a jackpot in the organization world. Boxes ain't cheap friends.
Whew, well nothing like sharing your mess with the whole world to light a fire under your behind. It feels quite good to let it all out. This blog just got real. And now I'm loosing my mind. So anyone else have an itch to take back over your desks, drawers, shelves and cabinets? Or maybe just one of those things since we seem to be living in clutter chaos over here! Who else has the organization bug? Share with me!
