Tackle it Tuesday






Tackle It Tuesday Meme

When we bought our home 2 years ago...everything in this house was an improvment over our last house...except the bathroom. Don't get me wrong the bathroom is fine, but it could be better, and what we had WAS better. It's been hard to get use to. Our last bathroom was large, had a big vanity,w/ 2 doors and 3 big drawers, and a full size closet. This bathroom has a big vanity w/ 4 doors, but NO drawers, and NO closet. It's a good size, w/ double sinks...but having no drawers is a problem, and no closet...also a problem. About 6 months ago I finally organized the bathroom. I bought bins for each person to store everything they use in the morning, and I bought slide out drawers...and life was great again! BUTTTT...in my efforts to allow things not to be so perfect, and to let go and let others help...Tierra has been cleaning the bathroom as her daily chore...which means, instead of things going nicely where they belong everything has been getting thrown under the sinks...so when someone gets ready in the morning it's chaos...in turn, my bathroom, every morning looks like a tornado ripped threw it....so this weeks tackle was the bathroom!!!!

I reorganized it again. Everyones stuff is back in their own storage bin, so when Tierra gets ready in the morning, all she has to do is pull out her bin...and all her stuff is in it...then put it back away! AHHHHHHH I LOVE organization! Let's hope it lasts!!!

What a great tackle it job! I love the idea of personal bins for stuff. That has a lot more benefits than just saving time. It also helps each person make the tough decision of what to keep and what to let go of. I find that more space leads to more junk!
