What to do with a snow day!?





So what to do with a Snow Day? Too cold to go out, to slippery to drive, to pretty not to look outside....so, it's organization day!! Yesterday I went to the library, got a few books on organization (yes, I need help...like I said I have a very TINY house, so every little space matters....and I need to learn how to make the best of each inch.) I also bought some organizing bins, which everything I read in the book said to not buy the bins before you have a plan...oops...fail number one! Coffee: ready! Chocolate: ready! Labeler: freshly labeled! My goals for today: get my son's dresser situation under control....and get a plan for his toys. Currently, they are in a huge pile in two bins. His room is so small, we got rid of some toys, but he still has quite a bit with books and games. So, here goes nothing! My other goal for the day is to make a family management binder. I found a few sites here and here that I'm using as inspiration...I'm glad that I have enough coffee to get me through today!!



Honestly though, I'm so excited to finally get around to doing this. This definitely fits my personality, I don't do well in a cluttered environment. I need to have organization and routines, it's just the way I am...so, I'm excited to finally be making time to do this.



Cheers...I'll update my progress later!!

so excited to see what you do with Jon's room. I am slowly doing that in our playroom/Nathan's future room. But its smaller than his first room, plus the addition of a twin bed will lose lots of space. I am excited to learn from you.

Good for you! I LOVE my house being organized, but haven't had the motivation lately to keep up with stuff. Hoping you'll inspire me! :)
