Team DIY Storage Challenge 2010

Are you up for the CHALLENGE? I am! In fact, I am submitting three of my trouble spots: my craft closet, under the stairs storage closet and master closet!  What will you organize this month?

January is Get Organized month for all of us at, and we’re on assignment to tidy up at least one space at home or work that’s cluttered, unsightly, or otherwise not acceptable. Editor Beth Eslinger will tackle her basement, associate editor Bethany Kohoutek has her eye on her work space at the office, and designer Katie Laporte plans to create a storage-packed craft/studio haven (go Katie!).

What about you? What will you organize this month? DIY challenges you to join the Get Organized party by sharing with us your best organizational endeavor. We’ll chose one reader’s space to feature on Team DIY Blog, and!

Here’s the skinny:

1. By January 15 (that’s next Friday!) identify your trouble spot (a room, a drawer, a closet, piles of paperwork), snap a digital photo, and upload it here.

2. Whip that space into shape. Use baskets, bins, labels, shelves, or other storage-savvy tricks to gain control of the mess. In the meantime, visit the gallery to view and comment on other readers’ storage headaches.

3. By January 31, upload a photo of your now picture-perfect space.


Here are my challenge BEFORE pictures:

Seriously adorable pictures!! I love the color and it is very organized. Looks like a wonderful space to work in. Personally I have made serious use of Tupperware containers particularly the ones with drawers. I have a store all of my craft supplies on three separate IKEA bookshelves.

Best Regards,

You're grounded for having such a messy master closet! The under stairs one is pathetic too. Maybe Hoarders or Intervention will pick up on this and help you!:)

Neat idea for an online challenge. :) I'd be scared to show my closet is much much worse than yours. ;)

Can't wait to see the finished product and what you used to organize it.

Oh goodness girl, I guess you don't have any skeletons in your closet. I'm not sure I have any projects I'd be willing to closets are kind of messy.
I nominated you for the Kreativ Blog award. Stop by for the info:) Lisa

Thanks for being brave enough to share your closets. I can't wait to see the after photos. Except for our master bedroom closet, all the other closets in our house are so small and packed with stuff. I really need to work on organizing them better.

Great idea.
I am going to try to participate in this. My submission will be the kids craft cupboard which is a total disaster area. If my after photo looks as good as your before photo of your craft closet I will be very pleased! lol.
