I have now figured out that the moment I tell myself I need to get such and such done and then think of an excuse to put it off, I turn the chore into a Tackle It Tuesday. This may be the only way to get anything done around here. Whatever works!
This week was a rather simple yet tedious tackle. The pre-school activity books and school/craft supplies were pretty much just thrown into a cabinet. When I would need something specific, I’d have to dig everything out to find it which would waste precious home pre-school time.
I took everything out of the cabinet I needed and sorted everything out on the floor. Here’s the chaotic before pile:
I guess I got so preoccupied with digging in that I forgot the before shot of the craft box. You can see it in the above picture. Here’s the after:
This drawer used to house our socks. Since our old house had an upstairs, it was easier to store all of our socks downstairs in the laundry/mud room, so I wouldn’t have to march up and down the stairs just to get socks. Since we no longer have that problem, I turned into the pre school/craft supply drawer. Works wonderfully and everything is right there at my finger tips. Now I have to transfer and refold socks and put them in their proper drawers. That will be another tackle for another day.
