organizational projects for 2012

shaun & i have three main goals for the casa this year:



finish projects
[that are already started or that we have the supplies for]

in an effort to get this house in ship shape, i'm going to again attempt the 52 weeks of organizing initiated by laura at organizing junkie. she's not continuing this series in 2012, but it was great for me last year, so i'm doing it again. i fell off the wagon about the time we had our unique living situation & life got uber crazy. most of my projects this year are repeats from my hopes last year, so i apologize for any repetition to those who have been following a while. fortunately, this post will be the only repeat since all of my future posts will be about organizing things that didn't get done last year!

i'm going to trying posting every thursday a series called "organizED" with the idea of sharing with you what i got organized, but also showing HOW i did it, with generalized tips for anyone who needs a little more order in their lives. check back tomorrow for the first installment on organizing your luggage & travel items!

as with last year, i'll be exposing the good, the bad, & the ugly of the casa, so be warned & don't judge! ha! the projects are not in any particular order, & those listed in yellow are ones that will take more than one week to complete.

enjoy a peek into the reality of the casteel casa!
