Cleaning & Organizing!

I’ve definitely got the “Spring Cleaning Fever” right now and it is being fueled by the blog I{heart}Organizing! I think Andrea posted something about following this blog and so I had to check it out! She has some really neat idea’s that I might be able to use in time!

On to my project! I told you recently that I was going to be organizing and purging my stuff before Kenny and I get married. I don’t want him to get overwhelmed with my junk, (if you ask my Dad he’d tell you “its not junk its valuable merchandise”) whatever you call it its got to go! Saturday evening I got the bug to clean out something so I decided to start where it was worst… my dresser! I decided to only tackle the top of the dresser and the top 2 drawers.



I’m kind of embarrassed for you to see how bad I let this get :s

Since our house only has one bathroom I try to do as much as I can in my bedroom to get ready each day and the top two drawers of this dresser is my storage space for a lot of my gettin’ ready stuff! So first I took everything off and out of the dresser, dusted and cleaned the mirror.P3050040

Now with a clean slate to work with I put everything into categories; Curling Irons, Hot Rollers, Vitamins, Hairbrushes, products, and trash. And put everything (except the trash) back inside. Drum roll please!

Isn’t that like a gazillion times better!

I put the products I’m not using right now in a clear, zippered bag at the back of the drawer, a gift box for all the other products, vitamin bottles standing up along the side, and a basket for my hair brushes in one drawer. In the other drawer – its pretty much self explanatory! My project didn’t cost me a dime because I just used things that I had on hand to make this work. I love being organized, especially when I don’t have to buy anything to do it! I think my next project will be… filing my business stuff!

Here is a link to Random Issues, Andrea’s blog, that got me started on I{heart}organizing and my Spring Cleaning spree! Maybe you’ll get inspired to join me.


  1. Hey good job! I've been so busy I haven't been over to the blog for a while, or to I Heart Organizing. Gotta get back wtih it!
