Get organized ~ Beat the clutter ~ A shed in need : a shed indeed.

Like I said earlier, this year has to be about setting right our priorties, getting organized, and working around it to achieve the goals  .. No not trying. Trying almost makes it sound like an excuse even before making the effort. So with the Study  ” a  l   m   o   s   t ” done with the new shelves and new paper holder shelves, Samie ordered for the new Larger shed from Interplast. Now not only is this larger, it is 10″ x 8″, it is far more expensive too, but the silver lining is that they aggreed to have it installed the very next day !!!!!! Wow, could’nt have asked for more better news. So the boys came on thursday and have done a pretty neat job. check it out :

Finally its here .. ..

For all those of you who think, the second shed could have been avoided, plz look further :

Tons of RC cars packed, stuff stuff and more stuff.

no derth of stuff in our courtyard !

Now you know why the 2nd shed was a"MUST"

In the making..

Saturday night we started out with the spring cleaning. It seemed like it took forever, but after heaps and heaps of stuff had been disposed .. I actually felt so redeemed !!!!!!! It really felt good although I was bone tired. Sam did all the hard work while I just kept guiding him what to place where. It’s always fantastic team work between the both of us ..

Still we have a pile of toy boxes and cartons that need to be filtered before I pack some into the shed. Well thats for another week end or maybe even a week day. With that off our backs, we’ll now start re-organizing the furniture in the courtyard.

Both of us deserve a well earned pat on the back !

Storage Solutions ~ the year has begun with getting organized.

Well the good news is that inspite of all the chaos of the past couple of months, one thing that I “finally” got myself to do was :

Spring clean the boys toys !! Major job – Straight one week at a stretch – No breaks

Organized the boys study room – That was not such a huge effort coz they were there to help me out anyways, love that red and yellow wall, so bright and happy. Infact most of the furniture in the study is kept at white too. 

Started decluttering, organizing my studio –   Now THAT WAS SOMETHING !! It took forever and infact it isn’t still complete, I figure if I push in atleast another month or so, I’ll be able to start functioning — crafting abit in there .. cant wait for that. I know its been a real long time and thats coz I have been having small bites of this whole thingy.. The whole thing was so overwhelming that I decided to do one draw at a time , one  carton at a time. My room is not very large and with 4 study tables /work tables in there, I figured the only way to storage was VERTICAL !! So off I went to Ikea, to pick some large shelves and ofcourse my darling handyman cum husband was bribed into putting up those shelves up.. Now thats another story ofcourse becoz that took two week ends too ! The bribe was not large enough !!  Well a couple of boxes later and I have stuffed quite a few of those shelves with my crafting treasures. 

I know its a long way but we’re getting there…  

Now the tough part about all this is keeping track of what went where… Solution : LABELS OFCOURSE.transformation-studio-1
