Many bloggers have listed organization as a goal for 2011. My house is definitely not as organized as I would like to be, but there are some areas in our house that we’ve come up with systems that work that I thought I’d share.
We have a lot of sports equipment: boating stuff, biking stuff, running stuff, tennis stuff, skiing stuff. All of this stuff takes up a lot of space. Mr. SP designed storage areas on walls in our basement to contain some of it.
This wall holds our biking, tennis, and skiing equipment. To be completely honest, we both keep our tennis bags in the formal living room where they are handy. I only hang them on this wall when company comes over! The tennis things seen here are extras that we aren’t using now.
Seasonal decorations take up a lot of storage space. Mr. SP helped out with how to organize these things, too.
Mr. SP built shelves for seasonal decoration boxes and for his boxed models. It’s so nice to be able to get to my boxes without having to dig them out of our crawl space attic.
(Did you notice that there are three more bikes in this picture? The red bike is on a trainer so that Mr. SP can ride it indoors.)
Tomorrow I’ll share some crafting organization on the other side of the basement.
My next organizing project will be a sewing room. It may not be a beautiful space, but I’m hoping to make a functional space where I can sew and shut the door to hide the mess.
What are you working to organize?
