Organizing Challenge!

I know that I already posted about my ridiculously messy/unorganized craft room, I even took pictures, but I'm too ashamed to post them. I'll work up to it, I promise!

But I just found out that A bowl full of lemons is hosting an organizing challenge. I'm way late to the game, but I'm going to try to catch up! My husband doesn't know it yet, but he's going to help. Although he probably won't be as much help as I need, lol. This Organizing Challenge is a 21 day challenge (not counting Sundays) that started on Jan 1, so I've got a long way to go!

Here's what I've missed so far....
Day 1 (Jan 1) - Junk Drawer - mine is awful! Can't wait to knock this one out, look for a post tomorrow!
Day 2 (Jan 3) - Computer Desk - we don't really have a computer desk, both my husband and I have laptops that we primarily use while sitting on the couch. We do have a small desk for our (non-wireless) printer, so I'll be working on that.
Day 3 (Jan 4) - Tupperware Cabinet - umm, I totally need help with this one - any suggestions on how to organize my Tupperware?
Day 4 (Jan 5) - Linen Closet - I don't have a linen closet, but I have lots of closets and they all need to be organized!
Day 5 (Jan 6) - Under the Kitchen Sink - fortunately for me, under my kitchen sink is pretty clean and organized. We keep our garbage and recycling under there and a few cleaning products. It does need a good cleaning (I spill coffee grounds A LOT when emptying them into the trash can)
Day 6 (Jan 7) - Dresser Drawers - oh Lordy, this is gonna be a big one! My dresser, not just the drawers but the top too is a disaster! In fact most of my clothes are on top of the dresser and NOT in the drawers...oops!
Day 7 (Jan 8) - The Pantry - this one might kill me. I LOATHE my pantry. I can not for the life of me figure out how to organize it. We only lived in our house 6 months and I have re-organized the pantry twice. But even I discovered this organizing challenge, I was planning to tackle the pantry yet again.
Day 8 (Jan 10) - The Coat Closet - my coat closet contains a lot of thing and most of them are NOT coats. Can't wait to work on this one!
Day 9 (Jan 11) - Toy Organization - since I don't have any kids, we just have dog toys are our house. Which are easily contained. Sierra only has a few toys that she likes and a couple of bones. A bowl full of Lemons suggests organizing your own hobby area (shutter) in place of toy organization - this will take me more than one day I'm afraid!
Day 10 (Jan 12) - Laundry Room (closet) - mine is more of a laundry closet and doesn't get a whole lot of clutter (Thank goodness!) but it could use a little work. My washer/dryer are stackables, and the only storage space is on top of the dryer. I have to stand on my tip toes to reach the soap! We really need to add a lower shelf or two in there.
Day 11 (Jan 13) - The Freezer - my freezer stock get rotated fairly quickly due to space, and I re-organize almost every time I go to the grocery store, so I don't have much to do here, but it could use a little help.
Day 12 (Jan 14) - The spice cabinet - this is a disaster zone at my house. Cooking and baking often result in swearing and crying because I can't find the spice or baking supply I'm looking for. This was also already on my list projects to tackle this weekend.

Whew! I hope I can catch up!
