Hello my friends!
The road to an space that is no longer hoarded or is chronically disorganized is to just start. The question is where do I start and how? I do want to make a quick notation here that I am doing this entire room while my spousal unit is traveling for work as to not upset our normal routine. No worries the remainder of our house is in good order.
First things first. Start by grabbing a few garbage bags. It doesn’t matter where you start, it only matters that you do. I began this mission three days ago by simply starting to remove trash. In a craft room, much like many other craft rooms it had become crap.
I removed a majority of rubbish that was broken items, a bag of dead pens and removed many items from their original packaging. Once this was done I began (one of three trips) to purchase some inexpensive organizing bins. Thanks to Walmart and the dollar tree. Both of which are within 5 miles of my home.
I am a ladybug it is who I am. I own it. I am more likely to shove something into a box, or bag or closet, drawer (you get the idea) than I am to actually put it away. What, you ask is a ladybug? To answer that question I suggest you take the quiz for yourself by watching the Clutterbug’s YouTube video by clicking here.
She even has her own video on using dollar store organizational systems. View that video here. I highly recommend her books as well. They are available on Amazon.
This post will go up on November 6, 2019. If you would like to see this process please view the post from yesterday by clicking this link.
Here are some pictures from today’s expedition. I started on November 5,2019 around 7:45 AM and it is now 9:45 PM. Now the space is looking better. My 12″ X 12″ iris storage drawers are even cleaned out and using those dollar store and Walmart bins are much neater. Now to develop better habits.
There are gremlins present with word-press. In lieu of photos here is a slide show of the progress today. This is a website exclusive.
Next on my list will be sorting and categorizing my stamps and dies. Stay tuned! Until next time stamp happy and be a blessing!
