Hey everyone!  Hope your week is going great!  I have been sorta lazy this week and have not really accomplished a whole heck of alot.  Some days are like that I guess.  I have been painting my little girl's closet and will post that when I am finished.  Also, today I finished organizing the bookcase that had been in my son's room.  I moved it into our living room area.  I am using it in conjunction with our desk.  Here are some pictures of the bookcase.

The top shelf has baskets for storage.  The next shelf down, I used storage boxes for mail and bills.

The next two shelves are computer stuff and camera items.

The bottom three shelves are office supplies, magazines and Bible study information.

I am really happy I moved the bookcase into the living room.  It freed up so much space in my son's room and gave us some really good storage space for our office stuff.  I just used storage things that I had already and did not spend any money to organize this space.  Reuse and recycle are always good to keep in mind when organizing a space.  It does not have to cost alot of money to be organized.

Parties I linked up with:
My Turn(for us)
a bowl full of lemons
The Shabby Nest

  1. Great tips to organize. I just feel so much better when everything is in its place. (and everything has a place) But the main thing, is that I can find everything easy. I am still following you and trying to organize my stuffs. Just hopping over to invite you to link up any of your ideas to my first time every blog hop:)

    1. I will totally be linking up to your new blog hop! I organize almost daily. Sometimes just a little or sometimes for hours. I love it though when I get a space just right and can leave it alone for a long time. That is an awesome feeling of accomplishment.

  2. Thank you for linking up to Freedom Fridays, my friend:) I am so looking forward to next week, this was ever so much fun!

  3. As someone who has gone for way too long without good office-type storage and organziation, I will attest that it makes a HUGE difference! And this looks pretty to boot!

    1. Thanks Erica! Knowing where everything is located makes things so much easier.
