Organizing Your Life with Shelves and TFT #377

It’s time for another Thursday Favorite Things weekly link up today. Welcome to new contributors and to our faithful regulars.  I’m looking forward to all of your wonderful posts!   I’m glad you’re here today.

Given the time of year and all of the great organization and decluttering posts I’ve been enjoying, I’m in the mood to purge and organize. We recently emptied a storage unit we were renting and deposited all of the stuff into our basement.  Most of that stuff was my kids’ old toys that they couldn’t bear to part with, some furniture that didn’t fit into our previous, smaller house, and various sentimental old knick-knacks.

Dealing with all of the STUFF has brought out my minimalist side.  Well, and also, Marie Kondo. (I haven’t actually even watched the show — I just like the idea…)

While I want to discard things, I also want to find ways to display the things I do want to keep.  I’ve often thought, “If I just had shelves.”  Lots of shelves.

So, for my features from last week’s party,  I was hyperfocused on the posts about decluttering, organizing, and well, shelves.

Features From Last Week’s Party:

I love the simple open shelving in the kitchen at My Wee Abode.

Sunny Side Design shared this wonderful teen room with amazing industrial shelves.  I would love this room for my own office.

Here are more amazing shelves from Sunny Side Design. Car display shelves!

Finally, I enjoyed this post from DIY Adulation about decluttering books because books are so hard for me to let go of.

  1. Thanks so much for hosting each week!! My link up this week is # 64!!

  2. Thank you so much for the feature, Pam! (Did I see you at HG this week? I'm going to be visiting posts tonight!) I'm at 124 and 126 this week! Have a great one!

  3. I too am in an organizing place lately, but instead of shelves, for me it's drawers! We moved into our old farm house nearly 6 years ago and began renovations. I have to admit that there are still some boxes in the attic that I never even opened, let alone unpacked. There just isn't anywhere for it to live yet. Slowly the things I stick in the attic to "quick declutter" the living space creep back down, and I'm so over storing everything in stacked up totes. Lately I've been collecting plastic drawers for the things we want regular access to but don't want stacked all over the house. 🙂 Someday there will actually be closets and cabinets. It's the dream!

    Thanks for hosting this week! I'm linked up at 86-88.


    1. Drawers are wonderful too! I love drawers, storage boxes, and baskets with lids. Sometimes it's a challenge to keep the shelves I have decluttered, (but I still want more!) Thanks for being here today!

  4. Hi Pam! I need all the organizational advice as I slowly but surely make progress here. Thanks so much for hosting. I'm joining you today with a story about hardwood vs. engineered flooring at #144, and rustic farmhouse country decor inspiration at #145 & #146. Hope you are having a wonderful week and being gentle with your lovely self.

  5. Thank you so much for hosting again this week. You always do so much for bloggers! Have a relaxing week! I am off to see some posts. Looks like a lot of inspiration tonight.
