Spring Cleaning Time

Man, I love her little smile so much!!

So I have been thinking a lot lately about our living situation, and things that I want to change. It's constantly on my mind, being home all the time. First of all, I will admit that I am not the best housekeeper in the world. I am trying to get better at it, but honestly, I guess I'm a little lazy. I have decided though, that here in the next couple of weeks, I want to do a dollar store/big lots/wal mart/whatever cheap place there is, to get a bunch of organizational tools. I want some more of those plastic drawered bins, a couple of plastic tubs, maybe some closet organizer stuff, some under the counter bathroom organizers, and some pots and pans organizers for the kitchen. I also want a humungous thing of cleaning products because I am sooo running low!

I figure, if I get some of those plastic tubs, I can easily stuff all of my extra pillows and blankets into one and save a bunch of room in my closet, or in the shed. Either one would be great. We have a kind of small place, but I really do like it. I just need to work on making the most of our space, and try to not let it look quite so cluttered. It's going to definately be a work in progress. Wish me luck!!


  1. AWWWWW!!! That smile is adorable! I have some hints for organizing in a small place! Those space bags are awesome for saving well...space! It's worth the price! Also using the "have i used this in the last six months, or if I lost this would it ruin my life?" rule. Wish I was there, I'd love to help!

  2. thanks =)

    I might get some of those, and the last thing is a pretty great idea.

    I wish we weren't renting or I would so build organizers into the closet.

    But since she's so little, whenever I run out of my big diaper stack in the closet, I might condense all of her stuff into one side, and use the other side for my blankets/ pillows/etc, or whatever would work well in there.

    You don't realize how much crap you hold onto until you move into a smaller space. ughhh..

    and babes have soooo much stuff! for real!!
