Even before I had kids, I had a lot of books. Now that I have two little ones, and we're homeschooling, we're swimming in books. After getting fed up with not being able to find books that I knew I had, I decided to get organized.
(I should mention that this is one of those organizational projects where things get worse before they get better, as evidenced in the picture.)
I started fairly small, with the two bookshelves that held specifically homeschool-y books. I sorted them by subject: math, reading, science, art etc.
I did this several months ago, and can vouch for how much of a difference it makes. Now I can find what I'm looking for within a minute or two, instead of having to search through hundreds of books.
We have several other bookshelves in our house, and my next organizing project will be to sort the books on the craft bookshelf.
Getting organized works for me. For more WFMW posts, check out the linky at http://www.wearethatfamily.com/.
