More Progress!


Today I made more progress!  I filled up a trash bag full of trash as I unpacked a box (from our move almost 1 year ago!) and decluttered boxes.  A box that I thought might go into storage was unpacked!  Woo hoo!

See that towel on the sewing table?  That was there for changing diapers.  I haven't changed a diaper since November!  Glad to get rid of it.

This is what it looks like now.  I emptied those 2 brown boxes on the floor and started putting give away items in the cardboard box.  So much fun!

Week 1 Progress!


Well, so far I haven't worked in my sewing room as much as I would have liked, but I did get something done!  I started by hanging the ironing board on the back of the door and putting the iron away.  I threw away 3 plastic grocery bags of trash.  I have a "Give Away" bag started, but I did not start a "Keep" bag.  When I've tried putting things in a "Keep" bag in the past, the things never get put away.  With two little girls around, I get interrupted a lot and projects just don't get finished.  So, as I found something that needed to be put away, I put it away right away and ran right back!  It may not be the most efficient way of doing things, but things are getting cleared up and put away, and that's the point.  :)
 After putting away the ironing board...

 There's actually some table top there!  And that box of stuff is probably going into storage so it'll be gone soon!  Making progress!

31-Day Organization Challenge!

I am going to be taking this challenge to declutter and organize my sewing room.  By the looks of it, it would be really hard to sew in here!  We are going to be homeschooling the fall, so I also need some room to store stuff in here.  So, I have the rest of this month to get rid of stuff and organize what needs to be in here.  I will keep you posted!
 (Below)  I was saving these plastic bags so that I could crochet a bag with them.  Maybe I should get rid of these and when I have time, get some more....ha!

 (Below)  This is my sewing machine table.  Can you even see my sewing machine?  It's under there somewhere...I promise...
