spring cleaning

In honor of spring, I have been doing some spring cleaning.  I definitely did not want to spend my entire spring break cleaning my house, so I have been focusing on one small area of my house at a time.  I decided that the first area of cleaning focus would be my living room, since this is the place everyone sees the most of.  I started by cleaning all the extras off of my ladder bookshelf.  
A ladder shelf is great because not only can you place items on the shelves, you can also place items on the floor behind the shelf and no one can even see what's behind there!  On my ladder shelf, I placed three storage bins.  One holds small games, one holds books and one holds nothing currently, but will be a great place to quickly stash stuff when company is coming! 
I also placed a small wine rack on one of the shelves to store magazines. 
The top shelf holds pictures and the shelf just below that holds my dvd player and satellite receiver.

What do you think?  I am feeling better already!
