Tackle it Tuesday - The Bookcase

5 Minutes for Mom makes housework bloggable!

My bookcase was in serious need of attention. I decided to take every single book out of the bookcase because there were entirely too many books than there should be on this small bookcase and it needed a good dusting, too! There were papers that needed to go into binders, and it just generally looked sloppy! Athough it took a while to sort through everything, I now have a huge bag of books to donate, the pictures and papers are where they belong, and there is order.
I decided to make the top shelf for fiction, the middle shelf for nonfiction, and the bottom shelf for reference and scrapbooks. Wouldn't you agree that it looks much better? What did you tackle today? Click the link above to go to 5 Minutes for Mom to see what others are tackling, too.

How funny. my bookcase got a remake on Sunday when I had to move it to make room for the xmas tree.Ya know I had to stop and check out all the books before I put them back up.. That tends to slow things down.. lol

Looks great! I have a real problem when it comes to my books. I have 5 different shelving units full of them, and I can not get rid of any of them. I know I need help, lol!

We have a ROOM full of books and that's only the half of it. I'd need to do a Tackle it February.

But I did get that library clear enough so dh and I could get our usual kitchen table into it so we have room for a tree in the kitchen.

Great tackle! I love when the books are in order and you can actually read the titles.
