Tackle It Tuesday Meme

So, this is my third TT, and I'm so excited because I have conquered Mt. Washmore. Well, sort of. I'm not sure I want to be this transparent with y'all, but here, take a look....

Yikes!!

And then here's the after!

Now, I know it doesn't make sense to a lot of people that we have a shelving system in front of our fire place, but it works for us. I can throw everyone's laundry on there as I fold it and they can whisk it away to put it where it belongs. Before this, I made 7 plus piles on our beds or all across the furniture. Now I can fit it all in one place, saving myself time and space!


And here are the kids putting the poor old recliner back to use the way they think it's supposed to work...

You rock!!

Y'know, folding and putting away laundry are not my favorite. I'd rather scrub the kitchen floor.

That looks amazing. What great work. I really like your shelving idea, anything that makes it easier for the kids to put away works for me!

Muther, that was about a day and a half of laundry. ;)

Michelle, I'm so picky about my laundry, and I have to fold it myself. When someone helps, I do my best to resist the urge to redo it! I hate floors. Wanna move in together?

Audra, my sweet hubby brought that shelf home and asked me if I knew what we could do with it. I said I'd figure something out, and about 2 weeks later as I was trying to find enough surfaces to separate the clothes as I folded them, I looked up and saw the shelf. It was a God thing!
