Ed has been into getting things organized around here. Up until a few weeks ago we didn't have any shelves in our closets. So things were just piled here and there, but mostly in the storage room. He has built shelves in 4 closets now (see further down). On Saturday, he wanted to get the girls stuff organized. He went to Walmart and bought a bunch of bins to put there stuff in. He had them sort thru everything and then he made a label for the bin.

This is now how the craft cabinet looks.

Then he moved the bookshelf that was in our bedroom with his books on it to the playroom. (I'm not sure what he is going to do with those books as they are now all piled on the floor!) Hannah put all these books on the shelf all on her own.

He also moved some shelves out of the garage to the playroom to help get that room more orgainzed. Halee's job was to go thru everything and get the proper stuff in the proper bin. She did fairly well with that task. I still have some work to do in there, but here is a start!

Hannah and Halee have been wanting to change rooms. Hannah has outgrown the princess/purple/pink theme but Halee loves it. I've been putting it off because I don't know what to do in Hannah's "new" bedroom. But since we were reorganizing things, the time seemed right.

We are still shopping for something Hannah likes and I agree with! So her room is a bit bare, but she loves it.

Also, Ed got the closet shelves in my office put in. He mentioned to me tonight that he worked hard to get them in and they are still empty. That is my plan for this Saturday. Reorganize my office. I now can get things put where they will stay. And get everything in here and out of storage room.

A few weeks ago Ed got the shelves in the girls closets. Again, most of the stuff that will go on the shelves is in the storage room. So, I haven't filled them up yet, but I'm sure they will. He also got the shelves in the linen closet in our bathroom in. He hasn't attached them yet so the linens are laying in the middle of the bathroom floor. Oh, it will be so nice to have everything have a home!

A few weeks ago I had a dream that I was an organizing consultant. I woke up before my alarm [Do I have to tell you that this has happened maybe 2x in my life??] and was so excited to get to work organizing my own house some more!!!!! Needless to say, your organizing post was a thrill for me!!! LOLOLOL In this house we, too, still have some spaces that could be much better put to use. "I'll get to it." ;) Great going, y'all! I especially like hearing how helpful the girls have been through the project!

I am so jealous! If I had an ulimited supply of clear bins and a label maker--watch out!!!!
