I didn't get the whole room cleaned yet. I did reach my goal of getting the trunk cleaned off. Now to find a place for the fabric I took out of it.

Marie I will be mailing out your gift next week.

** I hope everyone is doing well with your February Organizing Challenge **

Let me know how you are doing. I emptied out the hall closet and everything was pilled up on my dining room table. Ugh!

But, I cleared half of it off and only have a small bit left to go. I will have my clean dining room table back once again by the end of the month.

Then, the next task is to move my computer desk and printer out of the living room and into my office/work room space.
It's a 10 x 11 foot room so it's not very big. I will have to rearrange things so that the center of the room is open like I like it to be. I trip over stuff if the floor is not clear. lol

My helper is coming Thursday so she will do all the heavy moving of things for me. Whew! I am so thankful for her help.

I will be taking several big boxes to the local thrift stores for donations. A new store opened near me so now the drive is only 10 minutes instead of 20.

So talk to me and let me know your progress.

Be sure to check out my weekly blog posts with tips and fun motivation for you all.

My next project is my closet which is set in the hall. The door is blocked from fully opening by a keyboard. That can be fixed.





I have already organized my clothing in order of color so that I can see what I want to make for myself next.



I am most concerned by the floor which I know conceals some easy to finish UFOs. I hope to put some boxes of fabric (potential UFOs) in their place.

I've been so busy cleaning up and organizing and have really accomplished so much already.

Here is my craft room makeover. Head on over to my blog to see the after photos and story behind the makeover.

https://www.marketsofsunshine.com/2019/04/craft-room-makeover-on-budget_19.html

I've also completed my entryway makeover. I'll be doing a blog post about it next week. So stay tuned.

Let me see your progress. Post here or reply to the last email I sent out. If you aren't signed up for the challenge you can do so at the blog link above.

Don't slow down now. You've come so far and we still have a long way to go to complete the challenge.

Thanks for taking part with me.

The closet is finished. It doesn't look much different. It is much better organized.



Upper shelf has less stuff and is better organized.



Moved boxes of fabric here. I found two UFOs which will be easy to complete.

Success!

I'm doing this one vicariously through you guys! I'm in between one place and the other! I'm enjoying seeing the progress though and when I get busy on mine I will share! Good job on straighten out the closet and finding your chest! What a wonderful donation to be making! The shelves project is very exciting to see come along!

How the heck is April almost over and I haven't accomplished any organization? I do have a small goal for this weekend. My little girl is officially off bottles and my second is weaned off the binky but my corner cupboard is still a mess of both. So I'm hoping to clean it all out and organize what we still need in there. It will be so nice to have that done!

Great job ladies!

My project for May is the front hall of the apartment.



As one can see, it tends to be a spot where things collect.

I got the cupboard done! I wish I would have taken a before picture. But I feels so nice to have it organized and accessible.


I started working on another cupboard and found 13 tumblers with straws that I no longer use. Trying to find a new home for them. That will help with clutter!

Vicki I'm glad we are motivating you to join in and get your organizing done for the year. It really feels good to see the progress we are making one room at a time.

Krista. I know what you mean about having things left over that you didn't know you had. My dining room table is the place for me to put things and then work on finding a new home for them. I cleared if off today. Now I have about three more boxes of stuff to go through and see what I want to do with it. Sell, keep or donate. I'm finding I can let go of more than I thought I would in the beginning.

I don't want to keep stuff piled up with the idea that "some day" I might need it. If I haven't needed it by now it's out of here.

Great job everyone! Keep up the good work.

Painting the living room/dining room is our May project. One wall has wallpaper to remove. That is going to be a bear. The glue smell bothers my allergies so I'll have to leave the house for a few hours while my DH and son-n-law remove it. Every room looks amazing that has been completed. The fresh wall paint does wonders.

I did a little bit of organizing in my daughters room and found an old shelf to store her lotion, baby powder, hair bows, and etc. on. The shelf really needs some TLC and I'm hoping to get it painted and get some pictures of her up on the shelf and then I will share my completed picture.
