Living Room Organization

posted by Ashley

Is it really Thursday already?? I apologize for being absent on the blog lately. I have been incredibly busy with ministry-related activities and some changes that have taken place at our church, but I'm hoping to get back into my usual routine! This past weekend, Nate and a few of his friends went to the Arizona Cardinals game, which gave me a little free time to do some organizational shopping with my mom. I received a Michael's giftcard back in July for my birthday and decided I would look around the store for some organizing inspiration. We chose the perfect time to go because they were having a 40% off sale on ALL baskets! I've been looking for a way to organize all the junk around our entertainment center and coffee table in our living room and I found some super cute baskets!

I failed to take before pictures of the mess known as our coffee table, but believe me, you would thank me for not sharing :) Now, all our Wii & XBOX 360 controls, accessories, batteries, and remotes are neatly concealed under the coffee table! It looks so much more streamlined and I absolutely LOVE it! It's amazing how a few baskets and about 10 minutes of going through a mess can make your whole living area more... well... livable!


This is my challenge to you: If you've been putting off that area in your house that needs a little TLC and organization, take a few minutes to go through it. You will feel a whole lot better!

Happy organizing!

Ashley, I love!! We just went to IKEA and I picked up a little plant for the kitchen and an organizational container for all of our mail. It works wonders :)
