Tackle It Tuesday

Yes. I know it's not exactly Tuesday yet, but my mom and sister are coming to visit tomorrow and I'll be busy doing other stuff. And I wanted to make sure this got posted. After weeks and weeks, and weeks of saying I was going to CLEAN out from under my STAIRS, I finally. got. it. done. I am super proud of myself [Thank you, thank you. I can hear the applause all the way through cyberspace. :) ]. Honestly, it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be, but it was still scary. I was a little bit unsure what was under there. When we moved into our new house, everything that I didn't want getting dusty in the attic went under the stairs. Problem is, so did all of that other junk that we didn't know 1)where to put or 2)If we even wanted to keep it. I ended up finding some stuff that I had actually been looking for.
For instance-when Noah was born someone bought us a plaster hand print set. That's originally what Josh was supposed to be getting for Father's Day but I couldn't figure out where I put the thingthen I came up with a better idea to use paint and scrapbook paper and make my own. Oh yea. I also found Noah's "I'm a Little Roll Tide Fan" bottle that he got before he was born. He couldn't use it when he was on formula because he was so colicky, but now that he's off and is using the el-cheapo bottles, he can. I found his baby bible, a bunch of those $.97 but still super fabulous travel wipe containers that I had been looking for. And...I found Josh's High School Graduation photo that he has absolutely forbade me to show you or to put up in the house. Even though I think he was super cute.
So, ya. This is before. Pretty scary right?

And this is after. Yay me :) You see that? That's a FLOOR! Anywho. Wanted to share my accomplishment with you guys. This is also my "Operation Organization" Week 4 Goals. I can now check this off of my list of things to do this week.

Great job, Courtney! Those little "out of control" places are often the most challenging to tackle. All those little odds and ends that you don't know what to do with can just drive you nuts!

I'm tackling my pantry this week!

Way to go...doesn't that feel so nice. I do remember you talking about this because it made me think of that movie People Under the Stairs. Have fun with your mom and sister.

Awesome!!! It looks great! I just love the feeling of tackling a big project I've been putting off. (Speaking of which, I am behind on my organization challenges and really need to catch up this week...)
