SEPTEMBER PROJECT: week 2

YIKES what did I get myself into???

We have an INSANE amount of paper!!!! Does anyone else have this issue? It seems to be steadily growing, like a monster, ready to eat us all up...a little dramatic, don't you think? 

Well it definitely is the time to conquer this monster (a.k.a. paper).

What better way to do this than with the good old ONE.PAPER.AT.A.TIME technique.

I decided to sort everything by subject.




Then, I went through the piles, examining each sheet, notebook, binder, and got rid of the notes I no longer have use for.




Once I got started, it was going fairly quickly. Within an hour this is what my project looked like.



This is enough from me for today! 
I am ready to make myself a hot cup of coffee and enjoy my evening with my favorite people.

Lots of love,

SEPTEMBER PROJECT: CONQUERING THE PAPER CLUTTER

Having paper on my mind and my mind on the paper these days! Actually this month's challenge has been on my mind for months. It is one of the three projects I have mentioned here. Being an avid list maker and note taker, my paper clutter has gone WAY out of control. It is so out of control that it takes me quite some time to locate the note I am looking to reference for whatever reason. I have a crazy amount of binders and notebooks, and a few of them that serve the same purpose or houses the same subject.

Just to give you an idea of what I'm talking about... I have collected everything, and filled the laundry basket for an easy visual:



And I promise that is not all!

There is this one too


Oh and this one



SEPTEMBER GOALS:

  • GO THROUGH EVERY.SINGLE.PAPER. AND PURGE PURGE PURGE!!!
  • ASSIGN A BINDER PER SUBJECT
  • ASSIGN SUBCATEGORIES WITH DIVIDERS

KID'S WARDROBE PROJECT UPDATE

Hi guys,
I KNOW I'm waaayyy behind schedule... I'm a horrible person... I hate making excuses, but I had some minor medical issues in the past two weeks, but enough to disrupt our daily living. I'm sorry. We've been taking life as it came, and tried to get things ready and organized for the kids to go back to school this past week, keeping up with our routine the best we can,  and in the midst of all this insanity, I have decided to take a course starting next week...putting my project on the back burner. Sorry to disappoint you, I will get it done, and I will show you the final product soon, I PROMISE! 

I can show you the finished shelves. I have lined them with self adhesive shelf paper from Target. These were ready two weeks ago, and was saving the pictures to show you at the final reveal, but since I haven't finished the closets yet, what the heck, here they are:

The PJ bins-top shelf:


Middle shelf (long pants)- during summer season. I find the crates a little to heavy for the little ones, so once it gets colder, we will be moving these crates to the bottom for easier access.





Bottom shelf (shorts and/or skirts)- easiest access for kiddos. The crate just pulls out - grab and go.




Take care, and happy organizing!
