Getting Organized in the New Year.

Getting better organized is always on my to do list, but I tend to tackle more "major" organization projects at the beginning of the year.  Thankfully, Container Store always puts their elfa on sale this time of year.  I got Justin on board, and we headed over to Container Store on New Year's Day -- nothing like getting the New Year started off on the right foot!  Here is the back of Justin's car loaded up with our goodies.

We went back to Container Store a couple days later to pick up some additional things.  Stay tuned for what all we've organized around here!  

And you don't know how excited I was when I walked into the kitchen the other day and saw that Justin had made a list!  He is not much of a list person (gasp!).  I love lists and am thrilled that my husband finally got in on the list-action!  Of course, I couldn't resist adding a few items myself. 

(excuse the blackberry pics)

I'm happy to report that he has crossed off almost all of the items on the list! 

While I'm telling stories about Justin, we were on our way home from grabbing dinner tonight and the song Paul Revere by the Beastie Boys came on.  Since we were almost home, he proceeded to drive around longer just so that he could rap/sing all of the lyrics.  Very impressive!  :)


  1. I only wish I had a container store nearby!

    There must be something in the water this new year. My hubby came up to me the other day and mentioned making a list of things we need to get done. I almost fainted because he to, is not a big list person :)

  2. cute :)

  3. He raps AND he makes lists? I love him!

  4. Love the list!! And the container store!

  5. You guys are too cute.. sure he raps, but can he dance?:)

  6. What a great way to start the New Year. I wish we had a container store closer because I would go to it A LOT.
    Love the BB and Paul Revere. Ha.. Happy New Year Emily.

  7. Here's a little story I've got to tell . . . :) ha!! I love that Justin put the kitchen and pantry at the top of the list! And I would've totally done the same thing and added a few items of my own:)
