I have completed some projects here and there but I have a deep need and desire to be even more organized. I love not having to tear my house apart just to look for something. I like it when my husband asks me for something and right away I know where it is. I like being the CEO of our home and the Internet has been a great tool for information. I have been inspired & motivated by wonderful blogs by wonderful women who share information about interior design, home organization, basic home maintenance, and homemaking. I even came across blogs about doing a home organization 30-day challenge. I don’t think I am ready for that right now but it’s a great way to hurry up and get organized.
My goal wasn’t to make my bookshelves identical to the bookshelves in the Real Simple book, on pages 116-117, but to organize the books. I organized all of our books by categories, self-help, art & design, computers, etc. I scrapped the junk and added some design elements such as memorabilia, photos, and vases. This project costs me $0.
What was your last home making project and what inspired you to just get it done?
