Cross One Thing Off the List, and Add Three More...

I've been trying to do some organizing and decluttering around here. As hard as I try, there are certain spots in the house where stuff just tends to accumulate.

My desk is one of them. The picture below is what it normally looks like, on a clean-ish day. (Why yes, I was browsing on Pinterest at the time...) It's awful. It's also centrally located in our living room.


I thought I was doing really well last week when I scored a super deal on these little drawers, ($5 total,) and spent several hours getting everything organized.


Awesome right? I can access the printer, and the record player without having to move anything.

Unfortunately, as I'm cleaning things up, my sweet husband is making new messes elsewhere in the house. We had a flood last fall, and are just now getting around to ripping up the flooring, so we can replace it, paint, and replace the damaged cabinets.

Ugly, water damaged linoleum.

So, um, no more heaping pile of junk in the living room, but instead, the first thing you'll see when you walk in the door is this, in the dining room...

Work in progress.

Heaven help us.

  1. I was wondering if you found my list or not. Usually when I cross of one, I add 4 or 5 more to it. My dining room has had concrete floors for about 8 years now. I have finally gotten so use to it, when someone says something about it, I have to look to see what they are talking about. One day it will get fixed.
