We’ve been in Ohio for almost seven months now. And to be honest, I’ve done about zero organizing. Things just kind of got plopped where they are when we moved in. Getting adjusted to a new place, working from home, and my husband starting a new job all kind of took priority. In fact, there’s a room in our house that’s still got boxes and is a general dumping zone. Hoping to get to that sometime soon.
I’m of the “baby steps” mentality though. Every big goal or task I have, it’s just nature for me to break it down into littler pieces. It keeps me from getting overwhelmed and stressed out (I’m also of the “high-strung” variety).
So I’m starting small. I hope to get to every single nook and cranny in the townhouse by the end of the year, organizing it and making it over, but today I’m starting with the linen closet.
Here’s our linen closet before.
Basically, everything is just thrown in the closet. You can see that I kind of thought about organizing things – there are plastic bins there with semi-like items grouped together. But it’s still just a jumble of stuff, and it was making me frustrated.
