The plan for this new year is to get some organization going on in the house. While I really love having the house, the one thing I dislike about it is that there are only two closets in the whole house. There is not really much storage room at all. Yes, ALL of this stuff was in our trailer, which by the way has plenty of storage. I need to be able to go through all of the boxes, bags, and containers to sort out what needs to be kept, what needs to be sold or donated, and what just needs to be thrown away. I haven’t even started on doing this, because I need some sort of storage options for them. I would love to have some more drawers and shelves, sort of like these from Sterilite, and these from Closet Maid.
Once I get things sorted out and put away, I want to get the walls painted. I already have the paint, just need to get things out of the way so Fabgrandpa can do the work for me.
As you can see, we just brought stuff in out of the trailer, and stacked it in the closet. There are things in there that need to be hung on walls, or put on display in the living room. We have paintings, photos, other artwork. Pottery, knick knacks, etc., that I have been saving since we sold our last house in 2000. Some days I really don’t know where to start. And, really, do you think I am able to think amidst all this chaos?? I am sitting in the living room in my recliner right now because I just can’t concentrate in there.
So, my plan right now is to get this one room organized first. Getting that done will be a positive step, one that will take some of the stress out of my life right now. I just can’t stand having such a junked up room.
Tomorrow, I’ll show you another room that needs remodeling and organizing. One step at a time, I keep telling myself.
