Becoming Organised

Being organised doesn't come naturally to me; it just doesn't fit my sanguine temperament, but I do love being organised, because this means less housework and more me-time.  
I've cleaned our local library out of books to help me along my way...



I'm sweeping through the house, room by room, and one of the spaces that is sorted is the books.  We don't have a bookshelf at the moment, so the books are in storage and the 'use regularly' books are now shelved in a box.  I think this is a great idea and I will be doing this with the children's books with a circulation system, so when the baby-girl-child reads, there will be less books sprawled across the floor.  


I'm also whipping up an over-supply of draw-string bags because this is another great way to store or carry odds and ends.
This was Emma's bassinet sheet and it's now a laundry bag for when we go away.  I'm very excited about this because I really dislike scrunched up dirty clothes thrown back into the suitcase next to the clean clothes.


A linen tree print which is great for carrying cheese and bacon scones for this afternoon's picnic...


Another small bag for something small (like garlic)... 
(a great way to use stamping experiments)

This was another stamping experiment just because I love dots.  The photo is misleading but this bag is as small as the palm of my hand and holds the nail care set...


We're off for a picnic to catch the last of the Art Deco happenings.

Oh Kimmy.... I'm on the same train! I really need to get more organised. I love the idea of a book rotation. The kids have got heaps of books, on a shelf and all, but they end up looking extremely messy. Would love you to do more 'organising' blog posts. I am in desperate need of some direction and inspiration. xoxox
