Organize 2013 – Update #1
February 4, 2013 § 2 Comments
Hat Tip to Shady Lady @ Unschooling Royalty for the inspiration and the idea of making the focus (I hate to say resolutions…just sounds so resolute) of 2013 to ORGANIZE.
Shady and I have gotten together to do these monthly posts to encourage, support and help each other keep on track with our organization projects big and small. Sorted out a sock drawer, organized your cookbooks or recipes, cleaned out your closet, purged a bunch of boxes in the basement, built custom shelves in the garage? IT ALL COUNTS.

Okay, to my first post. This is kind of a cheat because I did this last month but it was a very large project and I’m still adding finishing touches almost daily.
It’s the shelves for my library…
I told you it was a big project. I finally got some shelves for the fireplace room that I wanted to turn into a library. In one afternoon, with some help from BF and some elbow grease, we got all four units built and placed where I wanted them.
That was three weeks ago. Since then, I’ve spent hours puttering from room to room, floor to floor, box to box, picking and choosing what books, art supplies and curios that would be put on these shelves. I think I’m finally settled with what I’ve got and I must say I’m pretty pleased.
I just hope this doesn’t set the bar too high for next month’s post. I may just be posting about cleaning up my spice rack. Hey, it all counts!
