Project to tackle: The Art Cabinet
This cabinet has really needed to be done for quite a while, but I just kept putting it off. Well, thanks to Tackle It Tuesday and 5 Minutes for Mom, I decided to tackle it today. Look at this mess! Yuck!



Whenever I or the kids opened the cabinet up, things were always spilling out....



Now look at the cabinet! It took me a long time, but I did it!!! I'm very pleased.


I wonder how long it will stay this way......

Oh, I know. It probably won't stay like that for any more than a week, most likely less. But hey, you gotta hope...

Wow, it came out really good. Did you throw anything out? How did you get it all to fit so neatly now? Great job. Way to go.

I threw out a ton of stuff: old playdough, old coloring books, things the kids out grew and threw out empty boxes the kids put back in. Filled up two bags worth of trash. Then I got a bunch of organizers and categorized all the art.

I bet if I let Kitten loose she'd have it destroyed in 20 minutes. When you're done organizing your home, come to mine.
