I feel like I am also creating more of a mess these days. I tackled #2 on my 30-day list yesterday, but I'm not sure I like how it looks. I took all of the winter coats out of the closet and put them in 'storage' in our guest bedroom. That did clear up a lot more space for summer things. I also put hooks on the back of the door for purses, backpacks, etc. I'm not sure what I think. It's off the floor, but it doesn't exactly look...organized.
A few of the things are summer stuff: Friday Kahlo bag is our pool bag, and our green picnic blanket, that will be packed away at the end of summer. I'm thinking I might need to add more hooks to the wall on the inside of the closet. Any ideas?
And herein lies my problem with organizing....I'm a perfectionist. So I'm never happy. And eventually I give up, and let it all go to s*** again. It's a never-ending cycle!
But, on a happier note, I am super happy with the recently re-organized bookshelf for DD.
No idea why that imported sideways. The file boxes are from Target, and they helped categorize a few of her books: Early Readers, Science & Nature, Seasonal, and general Picture Books. Of course, no reading nook is complete without a cat!
This is bookshelf #2. I thinned it out (moving many to bookshelf 1), so that it was less cluttered. The bin on the left holds random picture books that don't really fit anywhere else. The bin on the right holds all of our Beatrix Potter books, leapfrog books, and a few misc. chapter books. These are mostly books we read aloud.
