So in keeping with my organizing resolution for the year my first plan of attack is my Scrap Area. Yes it is already pretty organized, but I would like to go through and do some purging, get rid of old out dated things I will probably never use. Now this is pretty easy for me to help others do, but getting myself to do this is a challenge.
With my upcoming Scrapbook retreat at the end of the month I thought now would be a good time to do this so I can see what I still need or want to get before the trip.
Here are some before pics, yup I took these this morning and it really is this messy. But messy is good right means it's getting used.
-Each basket will get a go through to see what I still want to keep. Stamps, ink pads, punches, ribbons, etc. There is stuff on here that doesn't get used very often, but I will keep because it will one day get used, like my chipboard items.
And trust me NO Thickers will be hurt in this cleaning. I actually need to make room for another box of them.
-I will go through this bookshelf and see what can get tossed.
-I will go through my paper box and get rid of unwanted paper that I will proably never use.
-Each drawer in the plastic boxes will get a go through.
-Most paints I will keep because they do get used eventually, same with ribbons.
So I hope this will inspire you to go through your stuff and start the year fresh and new. Umm and hello it just leaves room to buy new stuff. If you do organize a space in your home I hope you will share it I love seeing this it totally inspires me, or if you have a website/ blog to share please do.
Thanks for stopping by.
