  • Project: day 84: organizational chaos/ 40 bags in 40 days challenge/ spring cleaning/lent, part 1
  • Difficulty rating (1=easiest, 5= way too hard!): 2, hard to part with a few things, but you can always get another one if you need to!
  • Would I do it again? yes, and hope to do this every year, if not every 6 months!
  • What I would do differently: nothing! This is a perfect activity/tradition for out with the old, in with the new. Spring is around the corner, we’re moving into a new house n a few weeks, and we really need to weed through some things. I’ll post a part 2 at the end of the 40 days (when we’re in out new house with less clutter!).
  • Items used: black Glad trash bags (easier to hide what you’re getting rid of, and less questioning 😉

  • Project: day 69: organizational chaos/ kids seasonal book organization/storage idea with free printable labels!
  • We’ll keep the off-season books in the garage so the books are fresh for the girls when we rotate them through. There will still be plenty of books that didn’t quite fit into the seasonal category, which I will most likely organize by genre/theme, but at least this keeps them a bit more manageable! Thanks to my best friend Jackie for this idea, as well as Pinterest! 🙂
  • Difficulty rating (1=easiest, 5= way too hard!): 1; easy to do, but you just need to dedicate the time, and be willing to get rid of some books while you’re at it!
  • Would I do it again? yes. I will definitely try to go through each bin once (maybe twice) per year. We LOVE books, so it’s hard to part with some of them, but necessary to keep our life a bit sane!
  • What I would do differently: should have done this sooner! I started out a while ago organizing by author, subject, theme; which is great to do, but when you have as many books as we do (see the picture with our overflowing bookshelf), not to mention all of my teaching books from 9 years of teaching, you need another organizational tip to keep track of it all!
  • Items used: free printable book labels (which can be used for anything you want to organize, really!) from: http://www.bhg.com/decorating/storage/organization-basics/free-printable-storage-labels/?rb=Y#page=25
  •  Avery sticker sheet labels, Rubber Maid Totes, and trash bags for donating any extra unwanted books!

Difficulty rating (1=easiest, 5= way too hard!): 1
• Would I do it again? yes, it was very easy, looks cute, and hopefully she’ll use it!
