Some organizing projects I've done

A few weeks ago, before I landed my job in the flower shop, I started on an organizing bender in my house. My mom and I had decided to have a yard sale (since postponed) and I wanted to clean out each and every drawer and closet, room and garage, so that we can make it a good one.

I thoroughly enjoy organizing. It makes me feel good, it makes me happy to do, and it makes me enjoy my house just a little bit more. I love having a place for everything and everything in its place...although I haven't recovered from the little tornado called "The Superbowl" that blew through here last weekend.

Here are just a few before and afters I did.

I love having a place or a basket for everything. I also love labeling things. I'd label my kids if they stood still long enough. Labels make me happy. Containers make me happy. Baskets make me happy. These pictures make me happy. :)

Thanks for indulging my inner Martha!

I go through this every January. Not sure what it is about the new year (or the dead of winter) that makes me want to organize. It feels good, right? :) Your kitchen looks great!

This post and these pictures make me happy.
I too love to organize and rearrange things. I think I let things get out of hand sometimes just so I can reorganize, teehee.
My lable maker is like my best friend.
