!!SO CLOSE!!

As embarrassed as I am to show you the following picture there is a reason I am.

I am almost have our place 100% organized. It may look like lots of piles to you but to me it looks like a trip to Goodwill, Christmas stuff that still needs to be put away and papers that need to be filed.

We have lived here for 4 years this summer and it has never been 100% in order no matter how hard I have tried. Hubby bought it when we were engaged and his parents moved at the same time. This resulted in a HUGE dump of ALL his stuff in our guest room. I wish I had a picture to show you how much stuff it was. I recently went through one of the boxes and he had every moved ticket I think he had ever seen, he also had his friends phone numbers written on pieces of paper (for use before he had a cell phone).
One thing is for sure when we move. I am unpacking right away and I am doing it all. He can help hang the photos and pick the paint but I will have to do the rest. (Have I ever mentioned he is amazing at picking out paint colors.)

I am hoping in a few days that I can show you the after picture of our clean organized place!!

This is a needed inspiration! I have so much organizing to do, and reading about you doing it is pushing me towards accomplishing something I have put off for so long.

Thanks, and good luck with the rest!

I wish my husband were a little better at decorating. Alas, he thinks a giant texas flag nailed behind a large TV is "decoration". After all it matches the shower curtain. I have since fixed this by telling him not to touch anything!

I think I will always have a few boxes that never get unpacked!

Oh, I feel for ya! I am the pack rat in this family! I have sooo much stuff, it's unreal! We just upgraded to a bigger house and already, I'm out of room! We organized the two bedrooms switching stuff out so that we could make room for the nursery! I was ready to light a match to my stuff! I try to be organized!

I need to start my organizing projects! You have definitely inspired me. We have been living in our house two years, and I still need to unpack a few things. I am a procrastinator!

Hey, sometimes things only look worse right before they get better! I SO need to do this as well!

It's certainly a chore to organize it all but I'm sure your final result will be great!

What a wonderful way to start off the new year! Congrats on your drive to purge and organize. I am sure you will enjoy this room a lot more once it is finished!

As a newlywed, I know exactly how you feel about the organizing, but it will all come together.. We have boxes and stuff EVERYWHERE! It is definately not a very pretty place but eventually the boxes will get put away and the stuff will be organized- my biggest goals for 2009.
