One of my resolutions for 2012 was to try to be my organized. I am sorry to admit that I am not very organized at all. I try to be, but I usually fail miserably. I think that Pinterest is going to help me with that.
I have found so many great ideas on how to organize everything. This weekend, I put a couple of those ideas to work. Below I bought a pegboard from a nearby chain hardware store. The whole piece cost $15. What you see here is about 1/3 of it. The rest will find a use in another room, or possibly the garage. I was able to remove a lot of clutter from my desk. This has made it easier to find things when I need them. Yeah. I also feel more productive when I can find the desktop. Previously I (accidentally – still learning this blog stuff) posted a picture of my new folder organizer – a dish drainer. It is such a great idea and I had one that I had bought, but was too small to hold the amount of dishes it needed to hold. Yes I keep everything, just visit my basement sometime…
Another idea for re-purposing items, is to make a purse out of a place mat. I got the idea from my sister in law. You really do not need to have much sewing knowledge to to this. It is so easy a beginner can do this without a problem.
Enjoy! – Michelle
