Organizing Challenge: Study (Week 3)

Is it week 3 already? If you're just now joining me, I'm participating in OrgJunkie's 29 Day Organizational Challenge, and I'm attacking our study.

I was pretty productive at the beginning of the week and got rid of a bunch of junk. I didn't get a picture of the piles that have now left the room, but I feel better already! The progression pictures aren't that drastic today, but since I only have a week and a half left, they should start looking more complete at the next check in!

Last week was the major bookshelf overhaul, so the only thing I really changed in the bookshelf this week was to add the magazine files on the top shelf. I still have some wayward items on said top shelf, but it's already looking way better than it started.

Ugh, not much has changed here this week.

This was where I spent the majority of time this week. I bought some green baskets at Dollar Tree to put on the top shelf to hold our rarely-used-but-still-sometimes-needed items. I also found better homes for the magazine files and sorted through a lot of junk on the desk surface.

Three of the big to dos left in this room are 1) to organize Matt's sheet music, 2) to sort through (and purge) the three stacks of CDs that contain who knows what, and 3) to organize Avery's "office" (I have some ideas, but it's what I'm dreading the most since I know it'll be harder to keep orderly because, well, she's only 2). Sounds like I'll be busy this weekend. Wish me luck!
