Day 5 - 7 Organizing Challenge

The Organised Housewife

I got a little behind in sharing my process with the
 20 Days to Organise and Clean Your Home by Organised Housewife.

Let me show you what I did for Days 5-10 of the challenge.

Day 5 - The Bathroom
Lucky for me I had organized my bathroom in March and it looks pretty much the same.
So a little dusting and straightening up and this one was done!

Day 6 - Clean Refrigerator and Meal Planning
I showed off my clean and organized refrigerator here as well as my
clipboard where I do weekly meal planning.
Check off another one done!

Day 7 - Tidy Craft Room
 I thought I'd share a great idea that I got from The Organised Housewife and how she
organized thickers(aka alphabet stickers).

I have most of my stash embellishments in these magazine holders that I got from Ikea.
I tried to separate them by categories such as seasons, holidays, and thickers.
But as you can see I have a lot of stuff and it wasn't very easy to find what I was looking for.

I went through every magazine holder and drawer and pulled out all of the thickers that
I could find and then separated them by color.

I bought a binder and sheet protectors from WalMart and got busy.

I used some tab labels that I had on hand and put each color in a separate page protector.

The only thing I might have done differently is, I cut off the brand label at the top of many of the thickers because they were so long. I know many scrappers like to use the same thickers over and over again - I should be okay but next time I'll just let them stick out of the top of the binder.

One page consists of thickers that had a variety of colors.
I'm really happy with this organizing project and it was very easy to do and didn't take too long.

And now when I'm lookin for a certain color of thickers, I just need to grab my binder and
pull it out.

I was able to empty one of the magazine holders on the shelf and it's not as cluttered as before.

If you notice the two binders on the top shelf, I bought those on clearance at Shopko and
will be more organzing with my stash.
Stay tune for Day 8 - 10.
Thanks for stopping by!

I love that you're doing this! What a great plan. Thanks for sharing it over at the Tuesday Talent Show! When I saw that painting on your shelf I had to parents used to have that same one hanging in their bedroom. What a blast from the past. Anyway, I'm headed over to The Organised Housewife next. Have a great week!
