Thinking Organization – Working on One Space at a Time

Does the thought of tackling all your organization projects make you overwhelmed?  I totally understand that!  Instead of attempting to organize everything, try to focus on one space at a time.

Since, we’ve been back and forth to the beach all summer, I haven’t had time to get many projects done in my house.  I feel like the laundry is the only thing I have accomplished lately!  Well, that and maybe cleaning some closets and junk areas of the basement…hardly blog worthy!  The closet in my office is one area that has really gotten out of control.

It’s actually at the point where I fear for my life every time I slide open that door!

Today, I thought I would do a round-up of some organization projects of the past.  As you will see, organizing one space at a time can make a difference.

(Please click the title below each photo to take you to the full story.)  Who knows, maybe I will motivate myself to tackle that office closet before I get a head injury!

While we are on the subject of closets, let’s take a look at what I did in my master bedroom closet…

One thing I learned from cleaning my master closet was how important it is to clear out everything first!  That’s not what you wanted to hear, is it?  Believe me, it really makes a huge difference!

Although my master closet organization took forever, the small closet in the back hall wasn’t too much of a challenge….

Small closets are quick and easy projects you can accomplish in a couple hours.  Like I said, just one space at a time…

One of the garage shelves was another quick project…

Although, I don’t think it still looks this neat.  Maybe that’s one space I’ll have to add back on my list!

Thankfully, my kitchen cabinets and pantry have stayed very organized since the day I arranged them!…

I guess it helps that I am in the kitchen practically all day!

Sometimes just conquering one space at a time can motivate you to do more.  

I hope this little round-up helped you to tackle an area you have been neglecting!

Okay, so that was enough stalling –  I better get back to my projects.  It’s not like I will be spending much time outside with these sizzling temperatures anyway!  Not that I am complaining…I love summer!
