Several years ago my Better Half designed and built these beautiful built-ins for our bedroom.
They offer a ton of storage to our little room. With storage however, sometimes comes disorganization. This was the case for us.
This beautiful window seat was hiding a nasty secret…a big fat mess…leading to another big fat mess. Below this window seat is a lot of storage space which leads to our attic crawl space. Both of which were in utter disarray. I didn’t take before pictures because you really couldn’t tell how bad things were until you got down in there, so instead, I took pictures of all the stuff that came out of there.
|FOUR bags of stuffed animals. We purged them down to two!|
Now you can see what it looks like under the window seat and in the attic space.
|The boxes on the right are filled with my children’s artwork. I can’t bear to get rid of them!|
|I left the luggage within arm’s reach. I never know when I’ll need to run get away.|
|We also got rid of a ton of stuff as I purged and organized the drawers.|
So now that I have the drawers and the closet all cleaned and organized…and even the attic space, I can call this room done! PTL!!!
I’m really learning through this process, that half the battle of being organized it getting rid of the “junk” that I don’t use anymore. It allows me to be more organized and consequently better at a whole lot of things in my life.
Wow, twelve weeks of organizing done! Next week, I’ll give you an update of all the projects and let you know if they are holding up and the changes I have made since all this organizing began.
