Last Post - 20 Days to Organize

Thank you, Anne of Domesblissity , for the initial inspiration!
Thank you,  Katrina at The Organised Housewife   who began the challenge...
 



...And WOW!

Katrina gives lots of direction on what to do each day and even allows weekends free!

The 20 Day instruction list actually ended a few days ago.  I stumbled across the challenge on Day 6 so my chore list had a little different timing! 

What is my proudest achievement of the last week?

 
Thread!


Most of my craft room is pretty well organized, but the thread was in three shoe boxes all tangled together.


How does one spool lasso three others?

 
There were two silverware organizers and a bolt organizer in the "To Be Donated" box retrieved from tidying the kitchen.  They don't match at all but are about the same size.  See how nicely they stack together?


Organized, color coded thread.  Yep!  It brings a happy tear to my eye!  ;-) 

Thanks again, Katrina at The Organised Housewife !  What a wonderful challenge!

    1. Oh, how funny! As much as I like to snoop through craft supplies, it would probably be worth it just to see your stash! -Marci

  6. Wow, you have a LOT of thread! I keep mine in a plastic tote and then keep the matching bobbin in a little plastic bobbin box. It works out so well to have everything right where you need it.
