Getting Organized Part 1

At the beginning of the year I wrote a blog entitled  "A place for everything and everything in its Place"  well, because I have been so sick, I hadn't accomplished much.  But finally I can show you some progress over the last week.  It doesn't look like the pictures in the magazines but really, when does it ever!

My husband and I live in a house built in 1947.  We have since remodeled it inside and out, but the rooms are small and so is the amount of storage space, this is my laundry closet (not room) but closet.  We do the best with what we have.

The green containers are not the most flattering, but they are what I had so they work just fine.
This is the famous junk drawer in our house, always needing upkeep

I have a little coffee center because I absolutely LOVE!! coffee,  and this is my go to drawer. 
One more drawer with whatnots all in there place
This drawer still needs some purging, but we are getting there
Books are being reorganized, OH SO MANY books!!, but I just cannot bring myself to pair down too much in this area.  This is just a tiny sampling of what I have.

I know these are not the most flattering pics to put on my blog, but what constitutes real life is not always pretty.  It is so easy to get discouraged by the way the movies look, the magazines read, the books tell us.  But wait, just doing the best with what you have, is the only thing that matters, especially in the Lord's eyes.  So remember that whatever you accomplish today, no matter how small or great, it is exactly what was meant to be for you.

Hey there! I'm so sorry you've been sick:( That's the worst...But girl you've been busy! It all looks great, I am talking myself off my booty to start doing the same today. I have to tell you, my dear husband volunteered me;) to coach our middle daughter's basketball team, so I can't go to Portland on the 5th:( I'm sooo sad! BTW I have no idea what I'm doing as a coach! HEHE!
