The cookie sheet cabinet will be one of the first places to tackle
My house needs a good, thorough organizing.
I knew it before, but after seeing Sue Smith Moak’s photos (Sue writes the Rockinrsranch blog), that she shared on our Living Large Facebook page yesterday, which showed how neatly even her closets are organized, I hung my head in shame.
A couple of weeks ago, Dale and I found some see-thru plastic containers with a good seal at one of the Big Box hardware stores and we purchased six of them so I could begin organizing the basement of The Belle Writer’s Studio.
I store some canned goods, as well as other things I use in the kitchen that will not fit into the house there and it is a disaster. Most of the stuff lives in cardboard boxes that were moved here from the city and I end up having to go through these boxes looking for what I need. Other items are moldy and need to be tossed (this happened before we put in our dehumidifier down there).
I still haven’t gotten down there yet. While it isn’t as hot down there, it is still pretty toasty with no air in the basement and I’m going to wait to tackle that and the large storage building when it cools off.
Now, back to the house. I know for many, you will need to get kids back into school within the next month. It is also too hot in much of the country to do much else outside, so this is the perfect time of the year for an organizing party.
