Living room closet (it's tiny - not sure what to do with it)
Top of the turntable (cds get dumped there regularly)
Top of the fridge (and the dust - THE DUST!)
Pantry (it's just so small, it feels forever cluttered)
Son's desks (okay, this one isn't surprising - and not one I'm going to tackle by myself)
Before yesterday, I would have said our garage, but we spent the day cleaning it out, and I'm so happy
!! It's not immaculate or anything (it is, after all, a garage), but it's functional and open, now. If we wanted, we could park cars in there! (You just can't even imagine what a huge change this is....)
The only thing I know to do to make a space work (and I'm quite guilty of not doing nearly as well as I should with this) is to make the space both functional and beautiful. Make it one of those spaces you love to walk by. A little area of your house that makes you smile. I did this with my clothes closet a year ago. It was one of those closets you open the door a crack, throw something in, and hope it doesn't fall back out. But, since I made it into a beautiful dressing room (it's about 5' X 5', I think), it has stayed perfect. Every day. Now, if I could only do that with the rest of my house!
