No doubt you've heard the best way to organize is the three pile method,
I set out to organize this large storage cabinet in my laundry room.
(1938 laundry room in the basement explains the poor light for photos - sorry!)
Actually, it's a big laundry room, and I love that it's downstairs.
Remember the two shelves of photos...I spent more time sitting on the
floor looking through them than I did organizing.
It was a snowy day, I had my coffee and my memories of a sweet baby boy,
family vacations, a cute toddler, weddings, 3 year old soccer team,
neighborhood friends, first day of kindergarten, Field Days, ski trips...
get the picture?
I quickly covered some storage items in scrapbook paper I had,
(this dish detergent tub now holds boxed chandelier bulbs).
Other light bulbs are in the box behind it.
Since I had whiled away my day I only covered the fronts of the boxes...priorities!
The photos fit nicely in my Nike Shoe Boxes.
The basket on the bottom holds gift bags.
Other containers hold school supplies, cards, small gifts to have on hand.
Spools of ribbon are organized by color and type in 3 different boxes.
My magazines that I like to save are on the top shelf,
instead of piled next to my bed (high enough to serve as a nightstand!)
I decided it was time to part with 8 years of Bon Appetit magazines...finally!

Did you notice the pre-school artwork I found, it's on the inside of the doors. :)
It was a good day!
