More Cabinet Organizing

Yesterday I organized the top of my TV armoire, and today I organized the bottom half! Here's where I started...

I decided that we're done with VHS tapes. BUH-BYE!

You can see I had to keep a few of my hubby's VHS tapes.
Star Trek and Star Wars tapes couldn't be thrown out.
Can anyone say "nerd"? Haha! :-)

Then I organized all the game systems into baskets. One basket each for games and cords, then 2 baskets for controllers. I used to have them in bags, but that system failed me.

On the bottom shelf, I put kid stuff that needs to be accessible, but doesn't need to be out all the time, like blocks and stuff. The bumbo is also down there, but it really needs to make a trip to the attic.

I love cabinets because I don't have to look at my clutter, but my living room really does feel more peaceful to me when I know even the stuff behind the doors is organized :-)

Does anyone remember what our living room looked like before I made about a trillion New Year's Resolutions and started this blog? Well, I do because it wasn't that long ago. And here I am, 3 months later, cleaning things that are hidden (a completely foreign concept to me). Before, I was just lucky if I could walk through my living room without tripping. Yay for progress!!!

Don't forget about our upcoming Cabinet Powwow! Come here April 1-5 to link up your cabinet posts!

What great progress you've made! Don't you feel so much more at peace when your surroundings are clutter-free and organized? I know I do. Peace be with you!

It looks wonderful! I HAVE to get something done for this powwow, or I'll feel like such a failure!

p.s. I like Star Wars and Star Trek.

Awesome organization makeover. I like the idea of putting the gaming stuff in basket. And, yes, a cupboard/closet to close is always a good thing, but an organized one behind closed doors is even better! ;)
