(Right Side)

So again, just like yesterday...shelves in need of clearing out!
The top shelf was chock full of glass serving pitchers and miscellaneous linens in a color scheme I no longer care for.  The bottom shelf was the rest of my vase collection.

A much more organized display of pitchers on the top shelf and the bottom shelf now houses my wine and champagne glasses (next to the wine of course, duh!)

I ended up with a nice pile of linens, vases, candles, etc - some for donation and some to toss!

(Left Side)
This piece of furniture is a great way for me to decorate and have some useful space for parties when needed especially since my home is quite limited when it comes to useful space.

Still, these shelves tend to become a cluttered mess of things I don't often use (or simply have too much of!)  This left side was a jumbled mess of vases, candles and candle holders.  It was well past time to thin them out.  I was able to eliminate several candles that were past their good burning hours, holders I don't like anymore and vases that haven't seen flowers in years (Ahem...Justin!).

I was able to make the top shelf vases (still in need of flowers!) and the bottom shelf candles that may get used.  I'll revisit this space again maybe 6 months from now and whatever hasn't been used is... outta here!!

The Bookshelf:
Somehow this space just turns into a giant pile of toppling books.  I guess that's a good thing...it means we're reading together!!  So although it's now clean, this is one space that will require constant upkeep and reorganizing from time to time. 


Some books for Lainey's room...

Some books for Kenzie's room...

And some ready for donation!!

It's day ONE of my challenge so I decided to start small...

I'm starting with #1 on my list but won't necessarily be going in any particular order as I continue.  Since I can't tell from day-to-day how much time I'll have to accomplish the spaces on my list I will skip around depending on the day.  Some of my spaces are quite an undertaking while others are much more manageable and may only take 10 minutes. 

So, today's space was: pantry cupboard!


...organized, LOTS thrown and much easier to access what I need when I need it!
