52 Weeks of Organizing: Week 8

This week I have been extremely tired.  That is what happens when you have a baby, you never sleep again....  No one tells you that upfront because if you really knew how little sleep you'd get you would think twice, maybe six times about having a baby!  But, I would do it all over again in a heartbeat because I am totally in love with my sweet girl!

So, I needed a really simple project for this week and last night I spotted it:

Cords, cords everywhere!  What a mess, huh?

So, I used a Sharpie to label the cords and then found a container to CONTAIN (hee hee!) them:

And now it looks like this:

Much better!


  1. Looks good. I have the same problem with cords. You made me realize that sometimes it is the small things that make a big visual impact. Thanks for the inspriation.

  2. Looks like a problem I have also. I might just tackle that this weekend! Looks great!

  3. Aaah much better! Hurray for sweeet baby girls!

  4. In this technological world, cords are everywhere! Your area looks very nice and you were still able to get your nap in. Way to go! :)


  5. Wow - love that! I have the same problem: cords everywhere. Good for you, sticking with your 52 weeks with a baby on your hip.

    My youngest is almost 4 and I remember those sleepless nights. Hang in there! It gets easier...for a while...and then she'll start dating and you'll have sleepless nights again! ;)

  6. Seriously, you inspire me. I would have never noticed the cords (in my own house), because of the big mess around me. You are making me see little things in my home that I can quickly do to make a difference. I just wish I could do them in the main rooms of the house without my 2 year old wild "Thing 3" undoing them.
