Surface/Shelf Organizing Round-Up!


So here we are at the end of another month, hard to believe isn’t it.  Last month we had over 50 people participate by organizing their closets and cupboards which was just awesome to see!   Let’s hope the momentum continues with our surfaces and shelves.

To participate in this month’s organizing round-up all you have to do is link up below to a post on your site telling us about the surface/shelf you organized.  Don’t forget to include your before and after pictures.  Remember to use the direct link to your round-up post and not to your homepage.  That’s helpful for those of us who might not get a chance to take a peek at your post until later.  Also, as a courtesy, if you are going to participate please be kind and link back to this post within your post.

Those that link up before Wednesday, June 3rd at 6:00 pm PST will be eligible to win one of FIVE copies of Gail Blanke’s book Throw Out Fifty Things.  Winners will be chosen at random from the Mr. Linky list below.


**Please note it may take a little while for your link to appear after you’ve entered it**

For extra entries, it’s totally acceptable to link up to more than one post if you’ve worked on multiple surfaces and shelves over the month.

Of course the biggest prize is the newly organized space you’ve just created and the peace of mind that comes with it.  Way to go and congratulations!

Finally, I’m always intrigued to know whether or not there were any lessons learned during the course of the month.  This can be very encouraging and motivating for others to read as well so please feel free to share in the comments the obstacles you battled and won to get the job done.

Next up…..our vehicles.  Join us!

    I am totally laughing because I got to exactly two shelves (of five) in one closet and that’s it! Still, it’s been maintained, so that’s something, right?! Hope others had more productive months than I did!

    Thanks so much for hosting this! You motivated me to finally clean the piles off the top of my dryer.

    Hi Laura, I just posted my mini home office project. I have to apologize though for linking twice. My computer was acting up, so I thought my first entry didn’t post. I hope you can delete #10… so sorry!! :S

    Excited because due to family visiting I got to clean 2 closets and clean out the kid’s room. Love the reward at the end (cleanliness) and the thought of maybe winning.

    I organized my office and totally remodeled it this month. I did learn though that the more surface space you have, the more room you have to pile papers on. I’m trying to keep it organized though.
    Thanks for hosting!

    Darn, I always seem to be “off” with these monthly challenges. I haven’t been blogging or reading blogs as much lately so I keep missing stuff. Or I’ve just finished the task but didn’t think to take pictures. Though, I *cleaned* my car out (vacuum even!) I haven’t *organized* it so maybe there’s hope for me after all!

    Well first time commenting on a blog… In May I cleaned out my kitchen and my bedroom. It feels so good. The only thing I wish I had of taken pictures of before and after. I guess though in my mind the before pictures are burned in my brain. I am a first time blogger and I have finally posted my first post. I want to give a shout out to you, and all the other blogs I have started to read to cheer me on that I can have my life together and in order! Thank you, thank you, thank you! God bless and have a wonderful-organized day!

    I dejunked my computer desk by making sure most papers I don’t look at are gone. (The ones I kept to look at someday!!) Just photos and a few craft instructions kept. Still working at it…desk top is next. I need to work at keeping this paper stuff to a bare minimum, as that’s my downfall!!!
