It was really hard to just start this project. This is a "catch-all" spot for our family. Everything gets thrown here. The hardest part of this was to clear it off and find a spot for all the things that had no homes. And I did find a home for everything!
2. Tell us what kind of changes/habits you have put into place in order for your area/room to maintain its new order?
Hah. Changes that I had to put in place were instead of throwing all our things onto this table, I need to put them away! I have to take the extra ten seconds to walk into another room and put the item where it belongs instead of throwing it on the table. For some reason, this is really hard for me.
3. What did you do with the “stuff” you were able to purge out of your newly organized space?
Most of it got thrown in the recycling bin. The other stuff was put away.
4. What creative storage solutions were you able to introduce in order to create additional space as well as establish some limits and boundaries?
I use this table to hold my bills. Before yesterday they were just laying there. There was actually a little holder on the table (under all the stuff and the bills) that I had wanted to use to organize my bills. I have organized all the bills and put them in this holder. Everything that needs paid within the week is in the front, the rest is in the back.
5. Why do you think you should win this challenge?
Because I got hubby to help me with this! I got him to clean off his stuff from the table and do something with all of it. Not just throw it on my kitchen table. I found a home for everything that was on the table. This table was harder for me to do than my living room was. And I accomplished it!
