Pick One Spot

Awhile back, I read about the Pick One Spot contest on girltalk. Although inspired (I can always find a spot to work on in my house!), I didn't have the time for a major organizing overhaul that weekend. So I'm getting to it today. I knew then that the spot I'd pick would be my closet. That's what I'm working on today. Sure, it's a little overwhelming but I'm making progress, and that feels good!
I'd take a picture for you, but as I explained in this post, the digital camera's shot. So I'll just describe it instead. Here's what I'm doing:
  • Removing everything from the shelves, one shelf at a time
  • Taking the clothes to the bed to sort through
  • Sorting through it shelf by shelf--either putting it in a summer tub or a winter tub, a giveaway bag, or a throw-away bag (plus a pile of dry-cleaning)
  • Gathering my maternity boxes and putting what fits now and is in season in the closet
  • Creating a massive ironing pile
The closet looks much better. The bed looks overwhelming! So I need to finish my sorting and tidy everything up back to normal (or near normal). :)

What spot would you pick?


  1. Hmmm I am thinking about either my makeshift studio(a corner in my room)or my pantry.

  2. Definitely my laundry room. It drives me crazy! It doubles as my "office" area, so it gets really stressful! I'm going to work on it!
    BTW...thank you for your blog! It always inspires me. :)

  3. Almost always the "junk" kitchen counter!

  4. You are inspiring! and must be in a nesting state... I just had a baby, #3 is a month old and I really need to get my normal clothes out of the big bins cluttering the bedroom and pack up my maternity clothes. I keep telling myself I'll get to it but still haven't. I feel like Scarlett O'Hara and keep saying "tomorrow". My big problem is that I'm not completely in my normal clothes again yet... and with 3 kids now too I can't seem to find enough time in the day. #1 is 5 1/2 and in Kindergarten and #2 just turned 3 yesterday.
