The winter months in Iowa, which, thankfully we see the end of, can get long! The last couple of winters have seen below zero wind chills and many, many storms. Personally, I do enjoy winter; being forced to stay indoors can be a reprieve after all the spring, summer and fall work on The Farm. But even I can go stir crazy and love to find projects that I never seem to get done during the months I am working outside! I find I don’t always have time for the intense spring cleaning I want to do, so I start it earlier and finish many organizing projects as the wind howls.
Organizing is a passion of mine. And while I may come off as over-the-top, I find that having a place for everything with correct labels and storage makes a home so much more enjoyable. When you know where things are kept, it is easier to use what you have and so much simpler to start and finish home improvement projects.
