Holy crap! I’m pretty sure a bomb went off in there!
is was our closet under the stairs.
This is how my children “organize and put away”.
I wish I could say this looks like this “because we just moved in” (cough, six weeks ago, cough), but honestly, if I devote my time to one thing, the rest of my house ends up looking just like this closet.
I’d say I tripped over and pushed aside this crap for a good two weeks before I finally threw in the towel and cleaned it up.
Oh it was an undertaking! I moved all the games to another closet, I folded all the blankets, put all the nerf toys in a bin, and I even organized the DVDs into piles. I’d outline the method to my organizing madness with DVDs but this post would be too long and you all would discover I’m totally nuts and back away very slowly – and then run screaming.
Okay, so anyway, after like at least two hours or more, the closet now looks like this:
I would love some shelving in here for the DVDs, and maybe some more shelving for baskets and things, but for now
AT LEAST IT’S ORGANIZED.
Screaming? Me? I’m not screaming. I’m just excited!
And if you haven’t figured out already just how incredibly dorky we are, check out my husband’s home-made modified DDR pads!
I’m considering making a post about how to make these pads, because honestly they rock and feel like you are playing at an arcade, but really? Would anyone even really care? Are my husband and I (and my sister) the only three dorkiest people on the planet that we actually made mod-DDR pads?
(But seriously, they do rock)
So cheers to me for organizing the “Harry Potter closet” as my kids like to say.
Oh, and srsly. If you really do want a tutorial on the DDR pads, let me know in the comments section. If I get a good response I’ll type one up.
