Week 34: Clothes, clothes everywhere!

Pre-pregnancy Clothes Before

Maternity clothes, nursing tops, pre-pregnancy clothes… and I didn’t even get a chance to mention the sorting my husband did of his clothes.

I’ve been working on a little bit of a different kind of organizing, but I already feel like it’s helping.

Week 30: Clearly I’m feeling overwhelmed

This week was rough. I couldn’t figure out what to do with the rest of the things in the china cabinet, so I decided to take a break from that project this week.So what did I organize this week?

On my initial organizing plan one project I wrote down was way too big for one week. I’m starting to break it down and finish it in parts.

I haven’t touched any papers for over two months, unless you count shoving them in to every nook and cranny of this one shelf on my bookcase…

Week 24: Back to organizing (starting small)

Hooks behind the door

To tie in perfectly with this week’s theme (“Finish what you start”), this week I picked a very small project to get started with. Our towel situation has been been driving me crazy for a while. Here’s what I did to fix it!

Trying to add more dining space


I love to cook. I especially love to cook for friends and family. On occasion, we have more people over than can fit around our small dining table and I’m trying to figure out what to do with an extra table in between those occasions.
