Thanks for your patience while I took a sanity break.
Once, many moons ago, my sister and I attended a lecture by the woman who wrote, Confessions of an Organized Housewife. The main thing I remembered from that day was the following quote, "DIVIDE AND CONQUER".
So I really tried to use that theory while organizing and putting away all of our Christmas stuff. Hopefully, Christmas 2010 will run a bit smoother. : )
See these red boxes above? I got them free from Target about a week after Christmas. They were just sitting, empty, back in the Christmas section, so I took them to the front with me while checking out and asked if they would mind if I took them home. As you can see...no problem. : )
These black trash bags, below, always get thrown into the attic, but I've never labeled them before. Why not?
Onto the closet under the stairs. BTW, I got this over-the-door rack at some organizational store several years ago. I love it!!!
DIVIDE AND CONQUER, right???
Call me a weirdo (because I am) but I want to keep my nice bows from getting squished. No one ever sees this wall inside the little closet.
Onto the garage. These big bins went on sale at Target just after Thanksgiving for $3.99 each!!!
Notice I was not willing to pan around and photograph the rest of the garage. But as they say, "The war was not won in a day". Maybe there's hope for me yet.
I didn't take many pics of my mom last Wednesday because I still wasn't feeling "up to par", but I thought these were darling. Here she is enjoying the photo of her latest new great grandchild.
So precious. Great photography, Joanna!!!
And last, a photo of my mom's caregiver, Sam, with her. Thanks for all you do, Sam!!!
