One Room Challenge Week 2

For just deciding to start the One Room Challenge last week literally on the day of the One Room Challenge I have to admit things are going pretty good. (Of course that's when things fall apart when you think you're on track.) My husband has been busy working on storage and organization for the closet. I have ordered whatever I needed to online. I've gotten confirmation that everything is on it's way except for the lights. Fingers crossed they're coming.…

We are right in the middle of our new master bedroom closet makeover and I could not be more excited.  Yes I'm an organizational nerd! This is a before photo looking into the closet.  (Notice the cat's tail!)  The space is probably about 10 x 15.  I thought I had paired down a lot of our clothes but by the look of everything on our bed that is clearly not the case. So where are we sleeping you ask? We…
