Organizing

Lately, inspired by a couple of blogs I’ve discovered, I’ve been on an organizing campaign. Here are some “before” and “after” photos…

This is my school supply cabinet. It wasn’t too bad, but was overcrowded and cluttered with end-of-school-year mess.

I pulled out everything we were through with that needed to be sold or given away. I pulled out a stack of items to list on ebay or homeschoolclassifieds.com or to give away. I put all our card games and file-folder games into the striped fabric box and a multi-pocket vinyl file envelope. The shallow fabric box holds markers and colored pencils.

This is the inside of my game file. It contains my Super Star Games plus a few others.

Our vitamins, supplements and medications were taking up WAY too much space in my kitchen cabinet. Besides, some of them were way out of date and needed to be thrown out.

I organized everything that actually needed to be kept into 2 baskets—The smaller one on the middle shelf holds everything we use frequently.

I added this basket to the side of my nightstand to corral some of the tabletop clutter:

This little table in my bedroom is actually “built” of cartons of Super Star Speech books covered with a tablecloth. I do my morning Bible study here.

I added a pretty box to hold my books, pens, and reading glasses. Much neater!

Do you have any organizing projects planned?
