Ever since I moved in to the house I've been using my guest room as kind of a storage room. All the holiday decorations, anything I want to sell and anything that didn't have a specific place went into this room. At first it was all organized, but as the past year went by it slowly turned into this:
It was ridiculous! I could never find anything when I needed it and there wasn't even a clear path from one side of the room to the other.
So last week I decided to tackle this project and get everything organized once again. The room's starting to look a little better:
But...that's mostly because my living room looked like this:
After working on it for HOURS, I finally finished! The pile in the corner is all garage sale stuff. I need to get some more boxes, but it's pretty much just staying there until I have a garage sale next Spring.
And all of the holiday/work out stuff is neatly arranged and easy to get to!
Hopefully, over the next couple of years this room will turn into a real guest room and be completely decorated. As soon as I buy a queen mattress for the master bedroom, the full I have in there will go in here and that will be a start!
I'm sure you'll be seeing many more simplifying posts. It's so freeing to get rid of all the junk that seems to clutter up my house and my head.
