Well, I was able to enjoy a three-day getaway to Houston for Spring Break. Why Houston? Well, it's a relatively short (4 hours) drive and is home to a plethora of antique malls and shops.
My boyfriend and I enjoy browsing (and buying), and have pretty much shopped out the few-and-far-between places near our home. We have amassed quite a collection of our own, so we are quite particular at this point. We visited Houston a couple of years ago and were pleasantly surprised at the number of antique shops and the kind of unique treasures we discovered. So, we decided to return.
Here's what I found on this trip:
Can you see a theme? Which leads me to my next point: home organization. A fellow blogger shared her love of IHeart Organizing and I quickly became a blog stalker. Jen has great tips for those on a budget (I am a teacher - hello!). I decided to finally act upon one of my New Year's resolutions to start organizing my house.
So, I began working on small projects - small space by small space. I purged, cleaned, and organized my hall closet first. I'm quite embarrassed to show the before pictures, but if it inspires someone then it will be worth it :)
I have to admit, I looked in the closet everyday for a week after I was done. It still brings a smile to my face :)
My next project was my kitchen pantry. It is still a work-in-progress, as I still need to label and get a few more storage containers, but I'll share it in its current state. We have sooo much more room now :)
I think I just might be ready to conquer the living room next.
What did you (or will you) do for spring break? What organizational projects have you conquered?
