Getting Organized

Happy Monday Loves!!

For the first time ever I spent the whole weekend all by myself!! Todd was off with the guys at a bachelor party and the kids were at my parents with their cousins. In my head I thought it was going to be just blissful. I had plans to watch lots of TV, drink wine, and clean out all the closets. But, I woke up on Saturday sad, missing my family, and feeling really unmotivated. So, I decided to take a little shopping trip for some new lamps for Taylor's room, which I have been on the hunt for, and grab a few things I wanted to start my organizing. I came home with my new goodies and dove into to my closet first. Well, after I put Taylor's new lamps up of course :) I love the way they look in her "big girl" (sniff sniff) room.




Holy, I've never busted my ass so much, batman. I kid you not, I started on my closet at 2:00 pm and I finished at 1:00 am. I am one of those people though, that once I get going I just can't stop. Then on Sunday I woke up early and tackled our bathroom (the drawers, cabinets, etc), the pantry, the refrigerator, Taylor's closet, and Carson's closet. 






Have you ever wondered what do to with all those cute little gift with purchase bags you get with your makeup? I put those bad boys to use and filled them with nail polish, tampons, hair rubber bands, and small travel accessories. Then I stacked them all pretty under our sink. 

Also, these little shower caddies hung on the inside of your cabinet under your sink are genius. It's such a great storage for all you bottles and lotions.


Needless to say I didn't have one glass of wine or even turn on the TV. But, you know what, it's Monday and I feel amazing, refreshed, and very organized!! And very very happy to have my family home! 




And this is just awesome :) 

Oh yeah, and I think I found my first new dress to replace all the old ones I got rid of. Plus, it's 40% off ;)

  3. Oh I would love this! I seriously think that I need to choose one thing a day to completely clean and reorganize on top of my daily cleaning routine. Our closets and drawers have all gotten a little out of hand. Lol

  4. I know exactly how you feel. We have big plans to accomplish a ton of things when our people are gone, but we are left feeling sad, missing them! I love the lamps you chose for Taylor's room, Alice Taylor has that same lamp in her room. You will never get tired of them. I cleaned out one tub this weekend, well basically dumped it in the floor to go through to sell ;)

  6. Great job! I need a weekend alone to do that too! It's hard to do that kind of stuff with the kids around. Glad you had a good productive weekend! :)

  7. I spent my Sunday cleaning out my closet, and it feels so good to get rid of stuff I don't need or wear anymore. Last weekend I did the toy closet. You are brave taking on everything at once. I plan one at a time. Although, I was juggling kids too :).

  8. Sounds like a dream weekend to me! Organizing AND kid-free? Sign me up! My hubby and I are in the middle of customizing our closet with built-ins (thank God for handy hubbies!) and my stuff as well as his is EVERYWHERE in the meantime. It's killing me. I can't wait to get it all organized in our "new" closet.

  9. So jealous of your time alone to organize, haha!! All of the closets in our house need a major overhaul and need to be organized! I think you've motivated me to start this week.

  11. Love that you got so organized during your "me" time this weekend!! I have been over-hauling my closet too and just ran a huge sale which felt so good! I feel so much better about purchasing anything new now :)
