I’m linking up with Project Simplify hosted by Simple Mom.
Today’s Mission: Drawers… except my drawers are actually organized… because the junk is on the surfaces. :-) So without further ado.. My mess:
*Note I took these with my phone… sorry for the quality!
This is really a nightstand… but this space is awkward… so it fits here near the foyer. :-) This is a problem area for us, because it’s so close to the entrance… it’s an easy pitch point for our junk.
I think this globe looks a little weird here, but the dresser is the perfect height for the kids to reach it. They love to spin the globe and feel the bumps (mountains) and ask questions. Since it creates a good opportunity to talk about foreign places, I’ll leave it here for now.
You may be detecting a theme… Basically any surface is a dumping spot. If it is out of the Littles’ reach, then it is a safe spot for something they shouldn’t have… Unfortunately we don’t go back and put those things away… Ever. That’s a remote controlled helicopter in the box… Yikes!!
Last but not least… my desk :-/
The dumping ground of dumping grounds… This is pretty embarrassing… A while ago I had the brilliant idea to move my desk into the living room. It has made a huge difference for sure! I can pay bills, check e-mail, work on scripture study lesson plans, etc and actually see my children and what they are up to. Seriously it was the best idea ever. The downside is that again, anything that needs to be dropped somewhere somehow ends up here…
You can also see my kitchen needs some love… One thing at a time.
The Little one was so excited about the clean space, he wanted to help. :-)
Whew. I’m tired… but so glad to have the motivation to tackle this stuff!!!
