Do you guys have a room in your house where “stuff” just accumulates? For us – that happens to be our office/craft room. Now this is a problem as I need to get this room cleaned out for a couple of reasons.
1. We are going to consolidate the office/craft room into the guest room to make room for the baby.
2. I have to be able to get to my couch so I can sell it on Craig’s List.
3. My sanity is being tested by the piles of mess.
So how bad was it…. well. Take look.
Oh isn’t it horrible? Check out the closet. Yikes!!
So I knew I needed to get it all cleaned up. I basically locked myself in there this weekend and got it all cleaned up.
My tips for tackling a space like this? Well first – I recommend starting on one side of the room and working your way around to the other. I also recommend having a large trash bag and a donate box handy. I also think it is good to bring your cleaning supplies with you so you can clean as you go. For example – I love stuff that smells good. So being able to dust and clean and have it start smelling fresh keeps me going!
So how did it turn out? Check it out now.
Ahh… so much better! Now I can take some good pics of the couch to get it on Craig’s List. (Faith might not be too pleased with me though – she loves to nap on this couch!) And the closet?
So much more organized! And I even made some of my storage containers a little spiffier with some nice little labels. They look much cuter now!
I am so pleased with the room and feel completely organized to start to all kinds of projects now! Don’t you just love how a clean and organized room makes you feel!
So what about you? Do you feel better when you get a space all put together? Have any spaces you have cleaned out recently? I wanna know!
