Baby Steps to Organizing my Stuff...

I just got out a few things that I want to use as storage.  I figured that if I have a plan set out and places to put things {when I drag them out of the corners of the house} that the process will go smoother than my normal chaos.
My mom-in-law gave me this beauty for Christmas {from Tai-Pan Trading}.  It can hold cards, pictures & just about anything.  I am thinking of putting it here.
I want to make liners for the old footlockers {like from Pottery Barn, click here}.  I got the red and white magazine holders from IKEA for way cheap, I need more!  An old collander holds quite a bit of this and that.  I got the little red organizer at REAL DEALS while visiting my sister in Texas.  I can just go crazy in that store!!  The small wire baskets are from HobLob and I got them for about 50 cents.
I have no idea what this piece of furniture is supposed to be for, but it fits the photo boxes perfectly!
I know that all of this will change about a dozen times before it is workable.  Most of all I hope that I remember where I put everything.


  1. I really like your card holder! Tai Pan is such a great store. I've only been there once, but I loved it.

  2. oooh, do you want to come to my house and work your magic here as well?

  3. I am debating going to Real Deals today... :) Thinking of you! :)

  4. You are making so much progress--it is beautiful!

    I couldn't find an email for us so...
    I was "tagged" by a blog reader and decided to partipate since she introduced me to so many fun blogs. I am passing on the favor (sorry??).

    You can go to my blog to get the instructions.

    It is easy and kind of fun and may introduce a few new people to your blog.
