Organizational Progress....

Here I posted about how out of control my clutter was getting.  

Here's a few before and afters---several more areas to go!
Ugh--office supplies Before:
 And After:

 I moved this entire set-up out--this is my Living Room--the computer went to the  kitchen desk, and here's what is in that Living Room space now:

(Un) Control Center Before:
 After, ahhhh:
Lazy susan cabinet Before:
 And After:
Area next to sink Before:
And, After:
 Each of these projects took no longer than 15 minutes to complete. I find staying organized is a commitment, you need to do a little something every day to keep it under control. 
My Rules for living (almost) clutter-free:
If you buy something, donate a like item you already have
Don't keep something if you don't LOVE it
ALWAYS have a "donation station"--an area in your home or garage accessible to all that corrals things to be donated--when full, call them for pickup.
Don't accept hand me downs unless you LOVE it and can USE it
Make it a Great (more organized) Day!
