2010 ~ One Word ~ Organize


Several bloggers that I visit have chosen their 'word' for 2010...instead of a new years resolution...it is just a word for the year...for focus...for motivation.  Better late, than never, I have chosen my word...
Organize

Where to start? 

Well, my closet, for one place...I have too many clothes for the amout of space...And I even practice the "if you haven't worn it for a year, get rid of it" policy.  Let this photo be my inspiration!


Next stop...the kitchen and pantry...

If only I had the space to store my appliances, paper products and staple ingredients. 

This photo is my dream pantry!






And my craft room...

Well, it's actually a guest room that doubles as my craft room and home office. 
Again, I have way too much stuff...but I like to create in many different ways.  I like to sew...paint...decoupage...knit...crochet...recycle something old into something new...
This is my inspiration photo.


Oh...and then, there is school.  I have acquired 32 years of teaching materials, files, curriculum guides, books, notes, lesson plans, bulletin boards, supplies.  I have stuff in my teacher planning center and in two classrooms...

This photo is my goal...


You know I got a good start on this Organizing
project this summer...but I have a long ways to go...

I'll keep you posted...

I did a ton of organizing before the holidays, but I feel like I need to go through everything again. I should have more space than I do, I still need to get rid of more stuff.

My word is simplify and that requires organization...so I'm right there with you!

I think I start every year with the idea I am going to get everything in my life organized. But usually by the end of the year it looks the same as it it did in the beginning....lol.

Good luck to you, Natalie.
