Here are the excuses. We've been super busy. Step-sister got married in Aug. Brother got married in September, We got married in October. We have a two-year old. The holidays. I lost my grandmother. We have a two year old. In the midst of all of that we both took on freelancing jobs that made us even busier. And thus our previously organized place became a lot less so.

Kitchen utility shelf-- dumping ground
Top of the refrigerator YIKES!!
|Hall linen closet--looks great since I spent 2 hours on it, now just to make it even better|
Medicine cabinet -- wasted space
Below the bathroom sink= Keenan's area & where I hide the tampons...help!
|Sloane's closet, the floor of it is littered with diaper boxes full of clothing that she has outgrown|
And the shame-de-resistance: the current state of our bedroom. DOUBLE HELP.
I wanted to attack the clutter in our home and get back to some normalcy, but I knew I just didn't have the gumption to do it without a little more motivation. Thus, this blog series was born. There are even more things in our house that need organized (gasp, I know it's shameful). So each week I will post one of the shameful sins and the progress I am making. Until I can too be called one of Oprah's Highly Organized saints.
Of course every battle needs weapons and I have mine.
(Semi)Public shame = motivation
Pinterest = inspiration
I'd love to have any of you join me in my shame, misery loves company. I will be having a link party on Tuesdays and would love to
For this week I will be perfecting the linen closet, because I believe in immediate gratification. Here's a cute idea I saw on Pinterest (duh).
