This weekend was a Spring cleaning…but in the Winter. I had cleaned out my closet and my boyfriends closet as well. We organized our books and dvd’s. Organized our office and even went into the garage. The only thing that I was not able to get to was vacuuming.
As I was organizing and cleaning out some old clothes, I was thinking about some great organizational tactics and solutions for all the clutter. Here is a list!
-Versatile Ottomans- ottoman/file box.
-Coffee Tables that can open for blanket storage.
-Multi-Layered console table. Stack you favorite books and even hide the unsightly objects into cute woven baskets.
-Don’t just use your sideboard to store dishes and stem ware.. store a few picture boxes and family home movies.
-Use curtains to hide clutter. Create a curtain skirt along the bottom of your pedestal sink or even around a desk or side table.
-Keep a charging station in a drawer of your console table as you walk in the front door or which ever door you use the most.
-Nesting tables, they are great to store small items on each layer.
-Side table pockets can be used to store those remotes that always go missing in the sofa cushions.
This morning, I guess I had an urge to dust my living room and noticed a HUGE pile of magazines that I had been stacking up. I am going through them and ripping anything out that I like, want to buy, want to make/bake/cook, or just love the inspiration. However, now that I am ripping these out, I have been stacking the ripped pages into yet another pile. Someday, i will get a binder and put all of these into categories and make my life easier to look through these piles.

Many of you may already know that I am a CLEAN freak, and the rest of you now know. There is a place for everything and everything is in its place, that is my home motto. However, sometimes this can be very hard to control, especially when living with someone a little less anal retentive.
I have found some great resources for those other type ‘A’ personalities out there. And, these resources are totally eco friendly too. How great is that. Check out some of these sites for help with cleaning, organizing, products and more.
