It's the weekly organizing challenge at Organizing Made Fun!
This week? The living room!
What great motivation to tidy things up! (It really needed it, and I'm not showing "before" pictures. Definitely the "lived in" look with books and laundry and...)
|One tall bookcase,|
one of many in our home,
is organized by genre.
Antique books on top,
then nature guides / easy science books,
then fiction chapter books,
then Bible & character building,
and finally picture books at the bottom.
(Our other bookcases throughout the house
hold other kinds of books.)
On the floor, I keep a bin for books
that are too big to be shelved,
or that need to be put away.
I found the automated kitty cat
at a yard sale for 50 cents.
|A large basket holds|
and current selections.
I just finished reading
A Bear Called Paddington
with my youngest daughter.
|A little reminder, not yet a reality.|
|I found the area rug for free |
at someone's curb.
All I needed to do was clean it!
Our gray carpet has a lot of
permanent stains on it.
Next time, I'll go for easy-to-clean ceramic tile!

Well, that's that with reorganizing the living room today!
