DVD binders (I know, no one is surprised) and I have these handy apps to help organize and keep track of DVDs and books: For books and for DVDs.
With the house process, we started in the basement and completely re-did the closet downstairs. It's where we store all of our camping gear (and there is a lot) but was difficult to access and we didn't remember what all was in there. So everything came out.
|Some of what needed to fit back in, we have lots of camping gear, but I promise we need it all :)|
|The rest of what needs to fit back in, with Aria laying in the middle of everything, as usual.|
Then we put new shelves in and now it's wonderfully organized! We were lucky that my parents had extra wire shelves from the pantry they took out of their new house, so total cost for this project $0! As always, Aria was a huge helper and thought she needed to be in the center of the project at all times. Here's the difference between a 1 yr old dog and a 12 yr old dog; the 12 yr old (Cassie) lays patiently out of the way while the 1 yr old climbs on everything and wants to be the center of attention at all times. Really, they're both sweet and well behaved, Aria just likes to be a part of everything!
|New shelves are in|
|Everything but backpacks and sleeping bags in|
|Aria is helping, again.|
|And now everything's in.|
|Including Aria, she really wanted to be in the picture.|
We also got rid of our old desktop (it was 13 years old and time for it to go) so we no longer needed the desk in the office. We've re-arranged a bit and now have a nice, cozy reading area in place.
|New reading area with electric fireplace.|
|New cabinet by the window, now it's really finished!|

It is so nice to thin out and get rid of so much unnecessary junk! We have the garage and shed to go yet, but we're waiting for the weather to warm up a bit, with 6 inches of snow it's a bit chilly. We also listed several things on craigslist that we no longer need and are ready to get rid of. After a week and several things sold, there is still lots left. Here are the links, if you are interested please let me know!
