New year re-org

Year after year, January seems to bring a renewed attempt to organize our home. I didn’t make resolutions this year, but I did commit to staying on top of household tasks. Some days, their sheer size of the operation is overwhelming, but little by little, I feel like I’m reclaiming some order.

I cleaned out my closet, packing up about 30 pieces of clothing for Goodwill, and remarkably, it’s still well organized nearly two weeks later. I’m also determined to wash, fold and put away a load of laundry each day, which should free up several hours come Sunday.

I’m not alone in this endeavor. In fact, Bryan is working far more diligently. He’s completely revamped the storage in the basement, and his tool bench is beautifully organized . . . and labeled.




Last night, I noticed he’d also labeled the deep freeze downstairs, just in case there’s any confusion. I can only assume the baby will be next.

    Wow, I’m impressed! We, too, have been doing some organizing around here. How does one accumulate so much stuff? Love the “Banner” and “Deep Freeze” labels. I’ll be checking the baby next time we’re there. . .

    I haven’t laughed so hard in a while – he must have been having lots of fun with his label maker!

    I just noticed – he does not have his drawers in alphabetical order – oh, no!

    I thought it was pretty darn funny. Katie pointed out that he must have done it just for my benefit, which I appreciated. On another note, I’ll have to replace that last image with a better shot!
