Home Organnization - Zee Garage and Studio

While it's been great reliving my New England vacation thanks to blogger land, the majority of my past week has been spent on that home organization project. 

Thanks to Toni at A Bowl Full of Lemons there is a blueprint to follow.  Check out her Blog Series called Home Organization 101.  I'm skipping around on the sequence she suggested as I needed to tackle the garage first while the weather is cooperative to an open door and hauling things out on the driveway or into the trunk for the Goodwill.  The other big area is my studio -- it has become a second storage area and is just as overwhelming as the garage.  So I'm tackling BOTH of them.  Glutton for punishment here.

Did you know that four banker boxes of paper fluffs up and E-X-P-A-N-D-S  to 10 large trash bags of shredding?  My trunk, back seat and front seat were filled to the max as I left for the county recycle center yesterday!
Glad that's over!  Another trunk full of old printers and miscellaneous stuff was donated to the Goodwill (second trip in the last week).  Feels so good to get all that stuff outta here!  And I am making headway -- look at the freshly polished computer desk sans stacks of file folders which were on each side of the keyboard.
Seeing a nicely organized and cleaned area is so motivating to carry on.


  1. You go girl!! I'm having my own garage and studio issues.

  2. But you are my inspiration! From glimpses of your blog, you work circles around me on this kind of thing! What helped me was being ruthless in tossing/donating stuff -- if I haven't used it in the last 3 years chances are I won't or that it won't even be any good when I do (like envelopes that lost their "stickem"). Lining up boxes for trash, shredding, recycle, donations, taking to another room, and filing helped. No stopping to file or put away -- toss it in a box and deal with it later. Really helped me move along at a quick pace. This morning I took care of the file box and that felt great! The room is almost completely done already! Still have to finish the garage... ugh.
