Day 21 of the Organization Challenge

I went to Toni's blog this morning to see what the today's challenge is, and lo and behold its the last day.  I  cant beleive that 21 days have already passed, I guess time flies when you are having fun.  Its amanzing how I truely looked forward to the challenge and finding inspiration from all of the participants.  I plan to continue with her weekly challenges to keep me on top of staying organized.  My goal was to complete every single one of the challenges, but that simpy wasn't possible while working a full time job and maintianing a household, but I am happy to say that I got a lot done.

Day 11 The Freezer

If I'd have to pick which projects have made the biggest impact on my daily life, i'd have to say my Master Closet, and the Freezer.  Waking up each morning and going into a messy closet was not the best way to start the day and not being able to see what we have in the freezer often meant that we had to much of the same items. I am really proud of myself for sticking with these challenges and plan to go back and finish the ones that I didnt get to.

I've noticed throughout this challenge that
  • Making a space pretty inspires me to organize
  • I love shopping for storage options
  • I'm motivated by seeing the way other people organize
  • I really like to see other peoples messes
I love looking at organizational posts.  In the next few months I want to tackle these projects I've found on blogland.

This ribbon organization meets my pretty requirement and is something that I need to get a handle on.


Again Chris at Just a Girl never ceases to amaze me.  Isnt this craft organization awesome.

Jen at I Heart Organizing has a whole series on paper clutter that has my name written all over it.

I think Toni has really sparked an organizing bug and I'm super excited to continue on this process.  What projects do you have on your to do list?

By the way I still need to find a home for these.


  1. Love the organized list. Now you can see what you've accomplished . . . and what's left to do. I'm like you. I love my newly organized spaces and I can't wait to tackle other areas! Keep us posted!!

  2. I've got a list on mine too, and it really helps me keep track of what I still need to do, I love seeing things get shown as done! Good luck with the games. They're a pain in our house too, but thankfully they fit on a bookshelf in our hallway.

  3. Im so proud of you! I love your peg board idea.. ive seen it around and I think Im going to give it a try. :))
