Mission Organization

I have spent this entire day working in the boys' room "cleaning out" while they ran rampant! I am too embarrassed to post "before" photos. Let's just say that it took me a good six hours straight just to get through storage bins and totes of toys.
By 5pm, I was frazzled! My awesome husband, TheDentist, was so kind when he got home, and insisted that I take a break! I went to Target for more totes!!!
Unfortunately, they didn't have everything that I needed so I headed to Home Depot. I have to admit that I didn't even make it in that store since I passed the 75% off sign at Pier 1 Imports. Had to stop there! I LOVE their 75% off sale after Christmas. For the past two years I have been able to get all of my teacher gifts and hostess gifts from Pier 1 at 75% off retail!
Gotta love a good sale!!!!
Back to the grind tomorrow...will post the pretty "after" photos - promise!

Way to go! We were in the same boat today. We spent the entire day organizing our toy room and storage room. We went through lots of Rubbermaid too! It feels sooo good to declutter and get organized!

Have a great weekend!

I also did some cleaning out yesterday and visited Goodwill afterwards!

I know how hard boys can be sometimes and they are so hard to "get" for me. I mean, why can't they just sit and color or play barbies for awhile...hee hee! So no words of wisdom from me besides praying for patience and warmer weather!!

I started laughing b/c I went to dinner with my parents on Thursday night and we passed a Pier 1 store and saw the SAME sign in the window and of course had to stop too :). My dad did not understand why but what man EVER understands why we go into stores that have "sale signs" in the windows! :)

Can't wait to see the pictures of all your hard work!

LOVE Pier 1. I need to go there now to see if their diffusers in the chocolate mint scent are 75% off.

It sounds like a lot of hard work! I love Pier One also.
