I did all of these in one night. Steve watched a movie, and Emily & I scrapbooked together. It worked so great! When I went through my scrapbooking stuff, I sat aside things I didn't think I would use and some of the pictures I didn't really want to scrap (some that were out of focus or I had doubles of). And I put together a basket for Emily, that way while I'm scrapping, she can scrap too.
This is scrapbooking area (of course not complete) as of right now:
It's still a little cluttered for my liking, but hopefully once I find a desk and bookcase, it'll look better.
This is what I accomplished in the Bonus Room closet:
Before I did this, our movies were a little bit of everywhere. Some downstairs, some in the closet, some sitting out. So, I have sorted between VHS, DVD and video games. And yes, they are all alphabetized.
And finally, this is the last thing I want to accomplish:
These are all of bills and things, in the bottom of the Bonus Room closet. I'm going to try to find a CHEAP bookcase and organize all of this. And then I should be done for a while! The flood of '09 has really made me realize how quickly all of this we think is so important can be taken away. I definitely feel very blessed with all that Steve and I have. Although, if all the "stuff" was taken away, I still know my God would provide for my needs!
Here's some websites that I check out every once in a while for organization ideas:
