Done. Now on to the Bookcase

Much better. It's so nice to come home to a tidy area. Even if it is the only tidy place :) Here are the things we (I) do to keep the area clean:

1. Put shoes away as soon as we get home
2. Hang my purse up as soon as we get home
3. Take recycling out every day

That's about it besides simply throwing away trash and putting everything else in its place. I bought 3M Command hooks. I love these hooks! They're especially great if you live in an apartment and don't want to drill into the walls. I put these hooks up to keep my purses and hat out of the way. You can see I also made room for our library backpack.

Here's a close-up of the hook:

Here's the next project - the bookcase. It's a mess. I can't help but buy a book every time I go to the library because the paperbacks are only $0.50. It wouldn't be so bad if I actually read any of them. I've read exactly three books this year. Quite sad.

Looks like you have been BUSY! What a great clean area you have now! It is nice to walk into a CLEAN place. Good luck on the bookshelf, I know that feeling, I can't wait to see how great it looks after! By the way I love those hooks, we have them all over our apartment too, cause then you don't have to worry about painting the holes before you move out! They are pretty heavy duty! Happy cleaning to you!

I don't feel like I've been busy since it's been a week since I first talked about cleaning that area up. I seems overwhelming to organize the whole apartment, so maybe if I just do one area a week it won't be so bad.
