Doesn't look to bad does it? This area ALWAYS piles up.
Here's the actual closet where I keep this year's curriculum. Stuff I really don't want touched goes on the upper shelves.
Here's some books......... Sorry about the pictures, I did it quick and it was painful!
And here's 1 cabinets worth of books out in the living room....... Believe me it looks even worse in real life :0
So here's the plan:
1. Wednesday- haul out all books and go through them. (give, keep, throw or craft away)
2. Thursday- clean out all curriculum. (sell, give, keep)
3. Friday- IKEA Day! We've never been so it should be fun! ( at least for Grammy and me)
Finalize room changes with Superman. Maybe even get some things moved around. (i have a plan drawn up on paper- we may need to make 1 shelf and a make shift work station)
4. Saturday and Monday- re categorize everything and put into place.
So that's it. I like the wall color so that stays. It could use some touch up, but I think I'll let it slide. There's to many other things that need more attention. I still have 1 child finishing up a course or two so I really can't close everything out. I think I'll pop all of this past years work into a big basket or 2 and save to another week.
The plan I have drawn will give us a bit more usable space, but I don't know if it will be as pleasing to the eye. This room has really never been that way for more than a day.
Any suggestions or ideas would be greatly thought of! I loved to hear from you ;)
