Emergency Preparedness December 8th

I am looking forward to starting this very important series with A Bowl Full Of Lemons.


Before & After Bathroom

I finally finished the bathroom cabinet re-organization. I am so excited! Now if I coould just afford some paint and figure out how to give the bathroom a makeover. One thing at a time right? Ok, so here are the new and improved cabinets. Tell me what you think?

Look, I have an empty drawer. I ran out of things to put in it. I am not sure if this is good or bad.

This drawer was full of empty toothpaste tubes after my daughter squirts toothpaste everywhere. The drawer was mostly garbage. I am so pleased with the new drawer.

I think maybe this cabinet still needs some work. I am still happy with the way it turned out.

This top cabinet was a nightmare. What a purging job it turned out to be. I think I am most pleased by the difference in this cabinet.

 I was always afraid to touch anything under the sink. My husband keeps his stuff under there because it was safest from my daughter, but now I wonder if we shouldn't move it to the cabinet. Anyway, here it is for right now. He loves it.

I actually didn't have a before picture for the medicine cabinet, but here is the after picture.

Ok, what do you think? Do you have any suggestions for me? I would love to hear your comments and suggestions.

Obsessed About Organizing

I have been reading blogs lately. A lot of blogs. From food to crafts to organizing. I never knew there were so many. I have to say, I'm hooked and cooked on these organizing blogs. With the daily feeling that my life is out of control, I knew I needed to do something yet I just didn't know where to start. Some of these wonderful blogs have helped me get started.

So, today, I wanted to talk about some little steps that I am taking to organize my life. My bedroom was first, and it is still a work in progress, but it is too late for before pictures. I will have to take some after pictures at a later time. However, I did have the forethought to do before pictures with our guest bathroom. Even though it is a guest bathroom, 4 people share it. My 6-year old loves to play with toothpste and water and mess up this space often.

So far I am only working on the cabinets and drawers, because paint and decorations will have to come with the money. Here are my before pictures and once I am all done I will post the after pictures.

 Well, it looks like I forgot to take a before picture of our medicine cabinet, but there will definately be an after picture. Look at all this disorganized stuff.
My daughter helped me purge the cabinets and shelves, except for one. We had several power outages while were doing this and we just plain ran out of time. Either way, I only have one more cabinet to finish. Hopefully I can get to it in the next week and complete my follow up post. Let me know what you think.
