Sarah’s Organization Project: Nightstand

It’s been a little while since I’ve tacked an organization project, but this one has been on my list for a while.

My nightstand became a hold all for books, and bits and bobs and honestly I didn’t realize how messy it was until I took the photo. I was wanting to reorganize it because I needed to make room for water bottles and tissues, 2 things I always realize I need right when I’m snuggled up and comfy and hate to get out of bed. So I fixed it…

I did the usual detox and putting things in their proper home, then I made proper homes for the items that belonged there; like: scriptures, journals, and books. Then I added every day kinda items that are handy to have close by: water bottles, tissues, pens, notebook, flashlight, glasses and foot cream etc etc…

Since my nightstand is so dark inside, I lined it with this paper to brighten things up and protect the shelves.

There’s somethings luxurious about having things at your finger tips, I like that!


Project cost: $1 for draw liners

Project time: 1 hours

Project reward: feeling luxurious, and as always happier to have another nook all neat and taken care of. :)
