: Project Organization :

Happy Monday!!!
We had a great weekend enjoying some family time, dating time, church time & friend time. Now it feels great to get back into the swing of things and into our daily/weekly schedule...

We've been in our house since the end of September - between move-in and now we have celebrated 3 birthdays {
in our immediate family}, our 9 year anniversary, halloween, renovations in the basement, survived another season of Cranberry Creek and Christmas...obviously that's not including the every day/week events that happen with school and such!

So to say the least, our home is ready for some good 'ol organization, from adding hooks to the entry way to re-organizing the cutlery drawer; our home is getting an organization face lift!

Mr. L and I hit up Ikea after dinner on Saturday night {our yearly "goals" date} and invested in some new tools to help organize our new place.{ this is Mr. L's idea of o r g a n i z a t i o n :: he loves the thought of being organized but kinda lacks the way in which to make things organized - ha ha}

I'm trying to organize our home on a budget -- I have grand schemes in mind, but little budget so I hit up one dollar store on Friday night prior to heading out for a "girls night out" then hit another one before I picked up JJ from school today. I've found most of the things I've been looking to create a more organized place at the dollar store...may not last me a lifetime but it will do me for a year or two and for a buck, you can't beat that!

I've heard of lots of friends organizing and I feel it too, when the weather is dreary and all those organization containers are on sale plus the increase of "new" from Christmas...I've got to get the STUFF under control or I'm going to loose control! Anyone else feel my pain, or am I the only crazy one!?!

Literal things I'm working on:
Daily file :: for mail...Mr. L drives me nuts with this, so hope this will help
CD file :: specifically for Christmas movies/music
Linen closet :: organize & label

And speaking of home, one of my favorite design couples is coming back to HGTV! The Novogratz family is back with a new show called "Home by Novogratz" can't wait to watch it tonight!

Any help with your organization tips would be greatly appreciated!

Happy organizing!

ha you saw my spice cabinet post right? I'm all about SMALL THINGS organization this year. Our apt is teeeeny and we work at home so space is at a premium. I recently moved all dvds over to these


and it a life changer. Previously 2 drawers full now 1 tiny dvd box from ikea. 1 box! I still need to put some dividers in but i'll try and blog about it. I have room in those drawers for all of our electronics now, its fabulous. good luck!

@bari: I honestly don't know how you live and work in the same place!?! Let alone both of you! My hat goes off to you! I have issues in the 2000 sq ft we live in :s

Well Matthew isn't here all the time because he is on shoots but his STUFF is. It was def easier to manage things when Asher's room was the office but it was a fair trade :) Luckily we are a very close family, I think this place is 600sq ft max.
