I love our home. But it does not have a space for me to:
-organize and clip coupons
-write out bills (correction: my hubby does this, maybe I would do it if I had the space :)
-anything else my little heart desires.
I gave it up and decided to turn my dining room into my multi-purpose space. We don't eat in there often anyway so why not?
The dining room hutch has always been used for decoration. I needed space. The table is completely cleared off and we rarely eat on it. I needed a flat surface.
Dining room with carpet + 18 month old = I am not willing to go there (often).
I used the empty space on the top of the hutch to house cookbooks, bible study materials, and a basket that holds pens, notepads, coupon books, and other random needed materials.
I have a 3 drawer organizer on the bottom shelf of the hutch (not shown), along with a basket of cars to keep Wookie busy if I am working here while he is awake.
Its not the bonus/multi-purpose room of my dreams, but it WORKS FOR ME!
