28 Day Organization Challenge

One month down already, and I haven't gotten much accomplished towards my goal of getting and staying organized. Orgjunkie.com is hosting a 28-day organizing challenge and I am thinking that this is just the motivation I need to actually accomplish some things this month.

I have so many places to choose from, but my office/craft room is the area frustrating me most at the moment. I always feel like I am forgetting something because I have so much stuff piled on my desk I am afraid I will lose a bill or something. It is also frustrating when I want to work on sewing or scrapbooking and have to do so much moving things around just to find a space to work. So I am hoping posting some "before" pictures will make me accountable for actually getting this room organized this month.

Here is a picture of my desk:

This is my husband's area:
This sink cabinet was here when we bought the house...this is that area:
This is my craft areas, a table and a work bench. These pictures were taken in January in preparation for this challenge they have been cleaned up just a little since these pictures were taken so that I could work on a sewing project:
I am also including our office closet in my challenge of organizing this room, as that is were a lot of the stuff in the room will have to go. We previously took out the shelving that was in it and put in different shelves, but I don't really feel that it is very useful this way either, so likely it will all be ripped apart and redone yet again. It is very hard to get the camera to take good pics since it is very long and skinny with 2 doors, but here is a college of a couple pics from it so you can get an idea of what it looks like:

I will try to post some progress pictures as I accomplish things this month and hope that I have a completely transformed room to show you in 27 days!


  1. awww that's not entirely fair. It already looks a little better than those pictures...except my area. You just took that today.

  2. The only pictures taken previously was the table/workbench. All other pictures were taken yesterday.

  3. Thanks for visiting my blog today!
    I am still thinking about entering the 28 day challenge - I just don't know if I will be able to finish anything! We'll see...
    Good luck with your projects.
