Tackle It Tuesday #15

Tackle It Tuesday Meme

Wow - it's been a while since I've done a tackle! Well, not actually that long, but it's been a while since I posted one.

I have a couple for today.

The first one doesn't look like much, but it really was a lot of work. It's this:

This large stack of boxes represents a few hours of work. What's inside them? A bunch of stuff going into a yard sale next weekend. Everything in there has been priced and is ready to go. The little pile of "junk" you see right beside them is more stuff I came across and was too tired to deal with. I still have quite a bit more stuff I need to go through. My friend is having a sale, and I'm putting my stuff with hers and a few other people. Hopefully I can make a little extra cash!

And for the second tackle. I can't believe how bad I let this closet get. I've shown this before, but it was much worse this time. It is the "catch all" closet. It holds lots of books, scrapbooking things, boxes and packing materials, odds and ends - just lots of things that don't have a home anywhere else. Here are the befores. I'm warning you, this is NOT pretty!!!

The bottom

The middle

The very top

I got rid of some things and moved the rest around. I moved things I don't need as often to the very top shelf. My phone books were up there before, and I had a difficult time getting to them. Now they are much more accessible, and the best thing - I'm not worrying anymore about things falling on me when I open the door!

And the Afters:

The Bottom: (Please ignore the awful floor - we never finished the inside of the closet when we put hardwoods down!)

The middle:

The top:

Much better!!!!

    This looks great! I have a couple of scary closets too. I'm still working on getting my desk/work area organized. Perhaps a closet next week . . . next month . . . well, I'm at least inspired! Good job!
