Tackle It Tuesday - Week 2 Challenge

Welcome back to another challenge week! I hope that some of you stopped by and saw last week's challenge to tackle a dumping ground spot in your house. I am happy to say that I have a nice, clean table and I'm hoping that my boys and I will be able to sit down at it this weekend and enjoy dinners together. If so, it will be the first time in 4 years since we've sat down at a table and enjoyed a meal together.

Now, part of the fun of all of this is that I get to share my after picture with all of you.  This is good because it holds me accountable to actually tackle my own challenge! So, here we go, one cleaned off table:

For those of you might wonder, yes, that is a rocking chair pulled up to the table. It's actually an antique that was passed down to me that won't fit anywhere else in our house and I can't stand the idea of putting it out into the barn. It sure came in handy the night my nephew was here and teething!

Now, who's ready for this week's challenge? I am! I hope all of you are too. This week, we're going to be tackling what quickly becomes another overflowing area for me. My bedside table. I only have one because well, that's all I have and I can't afford to buy another right now. On the other side of my bed, I have vintage suitcases stacked and they hold magazines I haven't had a chance to read and out of season clothing. The bedside table, however, is covered with who knows what! Plus, I'm an avid reader and have this bad tendency to drop the books on the floor by the bed when I'm done. So, since the move is coming up, I'm going to be clearing that stand and sorting those books so that they're either ready to be donated or ready to be packed! Let me show you what I have in store for me this week...

Yuck, right? Books stacked taller than the stand, wrappers, more books, kids' water bottle and yes, that is a box of cookies. That poor teddy bear looks like he's hanging on for dear life! I guess not only am I going to clean, I'm going on a teddy bear rescue mission! Who will join me?
