Why I hoped no one came to the front door this weekend…

I can use the “new baby” excuse no longer. This mess must go!

After a busy week of running in and out and not picking up after ourselves, our front room looked terrible! There was stuff everywhere – and at some points even a stroller parked in the middle of the room. Yes – I really hoped no one dropped by unexpectedly to visit.

But I couldn’t bear to live with the mess any longer. Plus, with Halloween trick or treaters arriving on Wednesday, I simply needed to tackle this chaos.

Here is the disaster before:


There is still a box of stuff waiting to be donated under one of the coffee tables, and some of the clutter will quickly return I am sure, but here is the after shot:

We’re making housework blog-able!

Each week on Tuesday, we are posting before and after pictures of a project or trouble area that we tackled this week.

The project can be little or big – whatever you want. Basically, Tackle It Tuesday is about giving ourselves incentive, deadlines and satisfaction in getting our household tasks done. (It doesn’t even have to be housework… just whatever is on your To Do list.)

    Today, I have no idea what I am going to do. But it’s going to be something and next Tuesday, I’ll have pictures to prove it! Thank you so much for the inspiration!

    Looks fantastic!

    (I still use my 17 month old as an excuse… and will use the new baby soon. *wink*)

    I love that you can look down into your living room — is that a landing upstairs?

    Blessings, Beckie :O)

    I did it! I actually set my mind to it and ORGANIZED a whole room (okay, technically two, but I always consider the entryway to be part of the living room, even with the doors).

    OK. I’m in. Lord knows I need SOMETHING to motivate me. It’s Wednesday, so I can have time to figure out which mess to tackle first. Guess I’ll run around the house and take pictures of all my messes first. Can’t wait to post the afters next Tuesday. Good luck to all of you. Please INSPIRE me!!!
