I really do love organizing. If I could spend ALL day organizing I would…..but I’d bore everyone. We spent the whole weekend cleaning out the house…..getting rid of things we don’t need and organizing closets and cabinets. Lisa walked in this morning and asked where did everything go? Success!
Boo and I cleaned her closet and drawers out. Then we moved her desk from the playroom into her room. She was so excited….and spend a few hours organizing her desk drawers. The horse lamp was mine….my dad brought it back from overseas when I was little:
I attacked the pantry and couldn’t believe how much food was expired. Now it looks bare:
Best thing I did? I got rid of about 100 magazines finally…..clipping and saving things in my inspiration books. I always use computation books….because the paper is thick and they are the perfect size at 11.5″ x 9.75″:
A few years ago I ordered custom closet systems from Easy Closets. A UPS truck showed up with 54 huge boxes of supplies. I put them all together myself while Mr. LBB was at work to surprise him:
Here’s how I organized my handbags…..I purchased some roller rings and 3″ large binder rings:
This system keeps the handles of of the handbags from being twisted:
Boo’s desk was a battered old desk from the thrift store….they said they almost didn’t accept it when it was donated! Instead of refinishing it, we took spraypaint to it for a quick redo. You can visit the tutorial below:

Wow, great job! I love your idea for hanging purses using roller rings and binder rings. So smart!!!
As my gift to you, I will let you organize the closet of your choice at Casa de Dimond. No, no, really, it would be my pleasure.
can i ask what type of glue you use for your clippings in your computation books? a good glue that won’t make the flimsy paper of some of those mags curl up and bubble?

I just use tape runners….basically just double sided tape. Sometimes I get them at Marshall’s for really cheap!

Love the organizing tips. Must get some chalkboard paint. And great way to store purses… I’m not a purse purson (hehe) but I wonder if there’s something in there to store scarves because I am a scarf whore. And your hair!!! OMG it’s grown so much. Are you fertilizing it?? I am so disappointed in my own damn hair that’s about “maybe” an inch long now!! After 7 fricken months! What’s your secret?
