31-Day Organizational Challenge

I have accepted that clutter can’t be organized. And that I have way too much “stuff.”

So, I’m giving Freecycle, Goodwill and the trash a workout this month, and joining Laura at Organizing Junkie for a month-long organizational challenge!

I’m tackling the Living Room. It was a toss-up between that and the Craft Room/Office. But that one’s a little more (no, a lot more) intimidating – and I’d like a Success before I try that!

Before photos, in no particular order:

There are a few points in the Living Room I like. The wall of custom-built RED paperback bookshelves a friend built for me. The little red candle light hanging in front of them. The stack of books (you wouldn’t believe how hard it was for me to use books as a stand!), pottery, and fake fern (mostly) hiding power cords.
