I've gotten through pulling everything out (there was another section that you really couldn't see in the pictures I've posted.) If you could see the basement right now, it may look like I'm not making much progress in the pictures, but trust me - I am.
Since I'm currently in the 'sort' phase (or if we remember our Japanese lesson from the last post 'Seiri') I have been grouping similar items together with the intent of going through and purging once I've completed sort. I currently have the following piles going:
Scrap booking (Since Mixbook is offering their 50% off I'm going to try and get a book or two done this weekend)
Crafts for the kids/Christmas projects (I have a TON of of canning jars)
Winter gear (I'm still trying to find out how with eight hands in our household we have about 30 gloves in the house)
My husband works this weekend so I'm hoping to finish the sort either Saturday or Sunday.
I've been putting a lot of thought into the future organization. For this project to have long term success I really need to make sure that my husband buys into it, especially since he's the laundry guru and he is the master of a large portion of the area. I have quite a few thoughts as to what I need to do but I'll share those when I get into the actual organizing week!
How is your organization project going?
