Do you ever have trouble figuring out where to put things when you are organizing? I certainly do! We live in a Cape Cod style home and have crawl space attic storage under the eaves of the house that is full to the gills. I’ve been working hard this week to turn an upstairs bedroom into a sewing room and in doing so, it required moving some things out of the bedroom and into a new place in our home. One of the last things that needed to find a new home were our photo albums. We no longer print pictures, but we do have many albums from years past. I thought about putting them in the basement, but was afraid that it wouldn’t be a good environment for them. I suddenly had a thought…an empty trunk by the front door!
I can’t believe that I hadn’t filled this trunk with something years ago.
This is our mail area. You might remember it from one of Amanda’s Decorating Dilemma parties from last year. The basket on the left contains my mail and the one on the right is Mr. SP’s. I’m still looking for an antique box for my side.
I’m so happy that I had a light bulb moment and found the perfect place for these albums. I like this solution much better than putting the albums in yet another plastic storage bin in the basement.
What have you been busy organizing? It seems like most of us have tackled at least one thing in January.
