Welcome to my Nightmare!
We took all of the Christmas things down
right before New Year's.
I had two options,
stuff everything back into the storage area
or really take the time to get organized
and sort through it all once and for all!
Of course, I never take the easy way out!
So, it has been Project Organization over here ever since!
I won't bore you with all of the nasty details
(well, just a few of them)
but I do want to show you some of the things
I have been working hard to organize.
So, over the next few weeks I plan to stick a few organizing posts in here and there.
After all, if I have to work THIS hard
then someone ought to see it!!!
Sigh, all of these pretty tablescapes!
These dishes have to be stored somewhere right?
A lot of my dishes are stored here
(see the overflow, oops and the dust?).
Some are stored here.
I can't believe I am showing you this!
I can't find ANYTHING in here!
More goodies in here...
The problem was that every time that I set the table
I was running upstairs, downstairs,
to this cupboard and that one to find what I needed.
It was exhausting!
I cleaned out one of my storage areas in the basement
and decided to use one of our wire racks to store all of my dishes in one place.
I really like to see all of my stuff.
It makes my life so much easier.
We have about 6 or seven of these wire rack systems
that you can buy at Costco.
They are the best ever!
I love the wheels because you can move them around easily. Mr. Beaux and I cut these pressboard sheets to fit on top.
It makes it easier to place the dishes on them.
They were easy to cut but boy that
Table Saw scares me a little!
So, I started lugging all of my dishes downstairs.
That was quite an endeavor.
One day I logged at least 60 times up and down the stairs.
This is only some of the dishes...
I am still working on it but it will
all be worth it in the end.
I doubt that I will EVER be as organized
as Miss Alycia over at Table Twenty-One!
But it is progress!
Until Next Time,
