Project Simplify/Project Complicate Weeks 1 and 2

I did not get as much accomplished this week as I would have liked to but between a sick child and spending most of my waking hours in the kitchen cooking for myself....I am surprised I got this much done!!

So let's go back to Week 1--Shelves and Drawers. I decided to tackle my night stand (in and out).  Here is what it looked like before, a big pile of books and such with no organization.

And After: much more relaxing to sleep next to this rather than the other one :)

Ok, onto this week, "The Pesky Closet".  I so wanted to do Lil'C's closet and I will get to it soon but instead I worked in the room I have been spending the most time...the Kitchen.  
Spices and Baking supplies were constantly falling on my head and my essential oils were a mess.  I also had no idea what was in there and think there were some spices and flour that was way past due.  I know I just did this cabinet last year but I think it is important to revisit it at least once a year.  So I took everything out and Voila....
It is now so much easier to find things and I even have room for more ;)

Yes two simple projects but much needed to make things a little smoother around here.  Next week I focus on Piles....Oh the Piles!

Scott decided to do his own version of Project Simplify, but I like to call it Project Complicate.  Check out our downstairs bathroom :)
He took down one wall of the yuck wallpaper (we have been wanting this down for 7 years!!!), the ugly light fixture, mirror and everything else on that wall.  Someday it will be a beautiful bathroom but for now Lil'C just opens the door and yells, "Daddy fix this?!?!"

Happy Weekend!
