Tackle it Tuesday: My Storage Room
We've only lived in our house for a year, but it's amazing how messy things can get. I have a wonderfully big storage room in our new house, which is the repository for anything we can't find a place for. Some of it is logical: craft supplies, Christmas stuff, camping gear, and all my inventory for when I speak (I have to have multiple copies of my 5 books and all my CDs and DVDs on hand, and it takes up a lot of room).

Last Christmas this room was gorgeous. But it just went downhill from there. So I spent all day tackling it. I'm going to show the before and after pictures together so you can get a sense of what I did.

Here's what greets you when you walk in. Before then after.

Here's what greets you when you turn to your left.

I can't believe how much better it feels!

I have a friend who is moving after over a decade in the same house, and she's cleaning out her storage area for the first time. She's having a horrible time at it. I've just decided that you have to do each room at least once a year, or it gets out of hand.

This week we also have to move all our stuff out of my main floor because we're having hardwood put in. So I get to weed through all my books and knick knacks, too!

It's amazing how there actually is a place for stuff, if you organize it. You don't have to just throw it on the ground! And when you tidy up, a lot more fits.

Off to do the books...

Thanks for stopping by! Why don't you look around a bit?

And don't miss my book giveaway!

You did an awesome job. Looks amazing! And I agree, it's a lot easier if you tackle each room in the house, at least once a year.

What an amazing clean up! I wish I had more storage space. I also hope I win your book. Have fun on the cruise and bring back lots of pictures for share! God bless and have fun.
