So, I purchased some clear bins from good ole Wally World and was able to turn it from this...
To this...It actually makes me smile whenever I open the door. I did get rid of several things that I will be donating and there was a small amount of trash. Now I know where all my materials are and I won't waste time looking for them.
Next, I tackled the closet that is basically our catch all closet. Coats, swim gear, church bags, and whatever else the kids (and if I am being honest me) throws in there. It is just a good hiding place.
I purchased the over the door hanger thingy this past winter to hold all our winter gear and loved it. So when the winter gear went out I hadn't quite figured out what I was going to use it for. I decided to put sunblock, sunglasses, and bug spray in it. It is awesome. Now I will always no where the sunblock is. For some reason my house eats sunblock!
I pulled half of a plastic shelving unit we had in the basement to hold our swimming gear, camera bag, and church bags. The top of the closet has 2 bins which are holding extra bags/backpacks and neck pillows (I made up a neck pillow for each of our family members back when we went to Disneyland in April) Anyways, I don't love it as much as the other closet but, it looks a million times better than it did.
I am not sure what to do next. I have such a large list of things to do before the baby comes that it is a little overwhelming. Maybe I will start on the boys room. Since the baby might need somewhere to sleep when he comes! :)
