Top 10 Organization Projects of 2011

Well, I have decided to divide my 2011 “Top 10″ lists into two posts this year – one for organization projects and one for crafts and other projects.  2011 was a good organization year for me.  Although I didn’t complete everything that I was hoping to {my nasty garage pops into mind!}, I am happy to say that everything that I did organize has actually remained that way!  It really does pay to purge!!
So, here are my favorite Top 10 organization projects of the year {in no particular order!}:
1.My craft room.  This was actually the project that started my whole organization craze and is probably my favorite room in the house.
2. The laundry room. Although it is still organized, there is still usually at least one pile of clothes on the counter. {Oh, how I hate putting away laundry!}

3. The fridge was another one of my favorite projects.  This one does require a little upkeep but I really do like having the bins and I love the vinyl!

4. If you have kids, I am sure you have a ton of first aid gear lying around the house.  Our boo boo box is a great way to organize everything and it is easily portable.
5. Make some cute {and functional!} bathroom storage jars.  
6. And to organize those kids in the bathroom, make them their own Brush and Wash station. {This has actually worked amazing well!}
7.  Organizing the kitchen cabinets was one of my biggest purging areas.  I have not missed one thing that I gave away and the cabinets have actually stayed organized with very minimal effort.
8. Organize all of those photos with a fast and easy way to scrapbook.
10. And by far the most viewed organization post {with almost 40,000 page views mostly courtesy of Pinterest!} is our family binder.

Well, hopefully that gives you some organization ideas!  Organizing can sometimes be a daunting task so break it down into small, manageable projects.  If something is well organized {and you really have gotten rid of those extra items that you don’t need!} it really does not take much effort to maintain.  I’m excited to keep working my way through the house in the year to come.  And who knows?  Maybe I will even tackle that garage!

Happy organizing!!!
