the urge to purge...

Yep, I've caught it, too,
that New Year's 'urge to purge' bug!
 My immune system weakens when I see spaces organized with color coordinated
 storage boxes, labeled, and stacked neatly, hinting of a clutter-free household.
 
 
The Remedy:
A healthy dose of my little obsession ~ Orange Nike Shoe Boxes
Missoni Shoe Box
A trip to IKEA for a few matching pieces






IKEA Kasset Series Storage Boxes
(so happy they match perfectly)


A cabinet with 2 shelves of photos, five boxes of ribbon, old school projects,
books, bags, boxes, folders, notebooks, preschool crafts, trip souvenirs,
scrap booking supplies (I did about 5 pages 10 years ago, not my thing!)


 My goal is to organize this cabinet so it functions efficiently for items I use often.
Purge, purge, purge, and make it pretty!

Stop by on Monday, I think I'll be feeling awfully chipper!
I was telling mr. simple how clever I was, he's watching tv and clearly doesn't get it!


Have a wonderful weekend friends, you're the BEST!

I have a closet that looks worse than that! I have to just keep the doors closed until I can get to it. I'm sure I don't even know what all is in there. I think the curse of crafters/DIYers is feeling the need to hang on to every little thing-never know what you will need for a project! You've got some great tools and inspiration, the after is going to be great!

"Just do it!" I can't wait to see what you come with! Inspire me, please.

Since the kids went back to school on Tuesday that's all I've been doing is purging and trying to get all the closets organized!!

I got that urge when I took the Christmas decorations back up to the loft. I looked around and the seemingly endless boxes and wondered what it all is. It sits there from one year to the next, why are we keeping it? I have decided to go through one box a week until it is all sorted.

Oh Mr. Simple...doesn't he know this is going to be wonderful?! I guess seeing is believing for some people. Can't wait til Monday!

Ah, great idea! I have those Ikea storage boxes. Sheila loves to destroy them :( So my next set (which I was actually considering about picking up this weekend for my magazines) will be out of her reach until she learns to not destroy as much. Monday will be a good day!

I love the feeling of wanting to purge! I can't wait to tackle my house... just as soon as I put it back together from de-christmasing my house! I can't wait to see what the end result looks like!!

Great project! I never thought of using the Missoni box! Great idea! And the nike boxes will be a great pop of orange. Best of luck and can't wait to see the finished product! it will look great. (And my cabinets look like that right now too!) I have the same goals too. :)
