Especially when the are looks more like a condemned dump site (or close enough to it!)…
Get excited about it! What do you want to do with the space, the time saved not hunting for things, the money saved not re-buying things you already own! What other reason make you excited to organize?
I want to create a room for our second child, an office where everything is organized and TOGETHER in one space, and a kids play area that has room to run.
That chore is going to require some organization and rearranging of furniture. I know that many experts say to try to find new pieces or organization systems to help you get excited and create a new system, but my goal is the opposite. I do not want to buy any new pieces. I want to reutilize what I have, organize, sort, throw!
I have decided a few things. The new office/play area is going to be in the unfinished basement, but…
- I want to WANT to go down there.
- I want my son to LOVE playing down there.
- I do not want to feel like I am in a dungeon. : )
And the random pieces of wood in my basement and garage, they are going to be re-purposed for good!
The goal is to be finished with the basement by the end of April and the second bedroom by the end of May. So, hold on because weekly updates are going to be coming. I’m sure some weeks will be more productive than others. Watch as ideas unfold and the progress becomes a finished project. Oh boy here we go!
I’ll post pictures when there is progress… but right now I’m not willing to show my complete chaos (in the end I’ll post before pics)! : )
