February has arrived and with it comes the next organizational space challenge! This month, we’re focusing on the guest bath. This can be an extra bath, a half bath, a hall bath, your kids’ bath, whatever! We’ll have another month focused specifically on the master bath, so don’t head there just yet. February is all about getting that space that your guests frequent in tip-top organizational shape. I know there’s a lot of people out there that like to snoop when they’re in someone’s bathroom (seriously?! I don’t understand this urge, so I’d love to hear why you do it!), and if someone’s going to be snooping in my bathroom, I at least want it to be pretty and organized. It’ll make it that much easier for them to find what they’re looking for. What exactly are you looking for, by the way?

You guys. I can’t believe we’ve already arrived at reveal time! I’m so excited to show you the organizational changes I’ve implemented in our living room this month and am even more so to see what you all have done in yours!
At the beginning of this month, our living room lacked functionality. It was a dumping ground for shoes, mail, school papers and other odds and ends, and at the end of the day, it felt more like a place where we dropped all of our stuff as we passed through instead of a place we lived in. I wanted to create a space that not only hosted a spot for every item, but eliminated the ability for extra “dropping” to keep the organization going for years to come. Using spare pieces I had around the house, some great free finds, and a few store-bought items, I created a living room space that is not only organized but is fully functional for our family. The added bonus was how beautiful it turned out!
So without further ado…my new, improved and fully organized LIVING ROOM! Continue reading
We’re into week 2 of the new year, and on our way to an entirely organized home! This month, we’re concentrating on the living room. If you missed the details on why we started with the living room and how to start getting it organized and de-cluttered, you can find those posts here (why) and here (how).
Today, I’m going to give you some pointers on conquering those different areas of clutter that can in our living rooms and how to create an environment that steers you clear of repeating past mistakes that helped you get and stay unorganized. Continue reading
Hopefully you all have started on Operation Year of Organziation and this month’s space to organize – the living room! If not, or if you have no earthly idea what I’m talking about, you can get all the details about this month’s project here.
In that post, I talked about what you should be doing this week to gear up for de-cluttering and organizing your living room so that it’s transformed into a space you love by the end of the month. I thought I’d break it down a bit more for you today to give you a better idea how to tackle it in small pieces, day by day. Continue reading
Welcome to #OperationYearofOrganization! I’m so excited for this series for a number of reasons, but the biggest is that we’re all going to enjoy the wonderful feeling of actually getting our homes organized this year! No more new year’s resolutions that fall through. No more getting exhausted and worn out trying to tackle it all in a matter of a few weeks or months. No more giving up halfway through only to have to start all over again next year.
This will be the year your house gets organized – and stays that way!
