I am often tempted to take on more than one at a time, but have decided to limit myself to one per month. This month, I am doing Organizing Junkie's 29-Day Organizational Challenge. As part of this challenge, posting "before" pictures of the room you want to organize are optional. I am slightly embarrassed by broadcasting pictures of my bedroom in it's current state, but I also know that it will motivate me to put a lot of effort into this challenge.
You may be asking what this has to do with my usual health and fitness topics. Well, my training clothing and gear makes up about half of the unorganized clutter in this room. I would really like to find a way to make this small bedroom functional for both me and my husband, since there is no other space in this tiny house to keep this stuff either! (We already store the Burley bike trailer and the jogging stroller in the dining room. Yeah, I know. But it's a small house with storage issues.)
Ok, (gulp) here are the pictures. Please don't judge too harshly...I promise the rest of the house doesn't look like a hoarder lives here!
|Bins under the dresser house my running and cycling shoes.|
|Closer view of the junk on top of the dresser.|
|This corner scares me.|
|Jewelry organization- I need a few more pins, but otherwise I like this system.|
|My hubby's nightstand.|
|My hubby's stuff on top of the dresser that houses my shorts, t-shirts, and unmentionables.|
|This corner scares me even more.|
|This pack-and-play will be going away early this spring. My mom is having a garage sale. Right now it is just another horizontal surface to catch things that fall out of ...|
|...the overstuffed closet. And yes, I keep the mirror in the closet instead of hanging it up. My son pulled it off the wall one day and it hasn't been put back up yet.|
|Organized purses! At least I'm doing one thing right!|
|Dirty clothes basket and random sweaters piled on top of the extra blanket basket.|
