Let’s Get Organized ~ Week 8!!

Welcome to Week number 8 of our organizing challenge!! I am super excited about this week. I am working on my Laundry Room, more specifically, I’ll be organizing all of the food. But to start out the week I need to get a little bit of the chaos under control. We have accumulated A LOT of boxes in the past few months and for some reason we just can’t let them go. They have spilt out from under the stairs into the laundry room and are invading my laundering space. I hate it!!! So, once I finish this post I’m off to conquer that jungle!

Pretty scary, right?

The rest of the week I’ll be working on organizing all our food storage. I have 4 boxes filled with baking goods from the cannary so I’ll take those out and organizie the shelves into different catagories.

This is how I’ve planned out my week of organizing:

Day 1 – Clean out under stairs and break down boxes. Put everything back under stairs neatly.

Day 2 – Take everything off shelves and wipe them down. Start organizing into groups.

Day 3 – Organize food groups (Baking goods, cereal, soups, crackers, juice, condiments, etc.)

Day 4 – Finish organizing food. Organize toiletries into one area.

Day 5 – If food is still needing some work continue organizing that. Make a place for toilet paper and paper towels. (we always keep our extra tp & pt in the laundry room so I want a shelf dedicated for them so the kids can go and grab them without needing help.

Notes: Have Fun!:) Complete 1 craft.

So, I’ve got a good amount of work cut out for me this week. I really want to get started on my sewing craft so I’ll try to start that this week. I picked out the fabric and I’m SO excited about it!! I can’t wait to show you the finished product!! I want to start and finish a craft this week, too, so I think I’ll work on a scrapbooking page. There’s a cute sketch on the Silhouette blog that I really want to give a try so we’ll see how that goes.

I hope you had a wonderful weekend and good luck with your organizing endeavors this week!:) Thanks for stopping by!!
