Project: Getting My Life Together...

Last week was our Spring Break... Oh how I miss you!
But we do not have much longer and it made me SO excited to spend the entire summer with my little buddy!
During my time- off,  it was my goal to get our home back to our "Pre-baby home" if you know what I mean. Let's just say, you have to clean at a different pace with a 6 month old! It took me ALL week to complete my list.
I love to be organized but when you become a full- time working mommy... Your priorities change...

Do not judge... BUT this is our closet before... EEEKK!

After 4 big garbage bags full of STUFF... this is what we got!
I know, it's not the beautiful Pinterest closets that have velvet hangers and matching baskets, but THIS girl refuses to spend a lot of money on all that non-sense. These are baskets from our Basket Shower that was given to us before our wedding...

I organized our bathroom...
I've always had a make-up bag but decided I would try a make-up drawer. So far so good!

I then moved on to the "butler's pantry" (since we have our very own butler, you know;)
I printed some free labels from Pinterest and laminated them...
I put Gage's babyfood in the drawers... it works great!

It felt SO good to mark the last things off my list!

Linking up for SAW. PINNED IT. DID IT..

I even completed a Pinterest project!

I saw this...
Inexpensive scarves holder idea made of a hanger and shower curtain rings

I knew I wanted to do something easy and of course, cheap!
I had the white hangers and bought clear shower curtain hooks from Walmart for like $2.
I just doubled up scotch tape to secure each hook and this is what I got!
I decided to do one row of hooks on two separate hangers.
So far, it works perfectly. Cheap, convenient, and it only took about 30 minutes!

I also organized all drawers, the pantry, kitchen, and even the medicine cabinet... 
ALL with this little helper by my side the entire time! :)

Have a BLESSED Thursday!
