A ray of sunlight

The start of a VERY long organization project.

This box represents the only part of the entire closet that is not in utter chaos. In order for Abigail to not absolutely hate cleaning, I had to present it in a way that would make it sound less like work, and more fun. Right now the "in" thing for her age group is the "My Littlest Pet Shop" toys, so I told her it would be a good idea to make a place for all of her "LPS" stuff to go, that way she wouldn't lose any of them! We found a box at the Christmas Tree Shop here on Cape Cod for $4 and it fit everything in there perfectly. Best part was that she wanted blue over pink. That fact alone made me more giddy than I probably should have been. So here it is. The start of a long project. Honestly, I don't think it'll ever look perfect, but it doesn't hurt to try :)

  1. You go girl! I've had my share of helping people get organized... some who've asked for the help, and some who just flat out had to have the help (not necessarily by their request...). YES-- seems like the key (or sometimes "trick") is to find a way for them to connect with the purpose of doing it at all. If their things are in an unorganized state, well, that's usually b/c being orderly isn't on top of their priority list. In the end, everybody likes to HAVE their stuff organized..... but some just don't like DOING the organizing. :-)
