I Need Organizing Again

I can't believe it is 2013 already. Looking at the last time I posted to this blog it has been several months. Wow, I apologize for that, I hope to do better this year.
 
I seem to have accumulated way too much stuff for scanning. That is a good thing, so many people have nothing from their family. But I seriously need to get organize. I have lost focus of what has been scanned and not scanned.
 
  On March 6, 2011, I shared photos of my boxes of family goodies.
Well sadly instead of it getting better, it is really a mess now.

 
I moved everything to a different room in the house, one of our spare bedrooms.
 
 
My desk is buried on top and stuffed underneath!
  
 
More stuff and the big cabinet is my sewing cabinet.
All sewing is on hold at the moment.
  
 
More! 
 
 
A tiny peek into the closet, there are boxes on the floor too, but you get the idea.
 
I found some nice photo boxes on sale and bought a few and also found some archival sleeves.
Now to dig in and get things sorted.
 
 
I also need to organize my bookmarks for researching here online. I am thinking of adding a page to my blog where I can paste the links in some sort of a order rather than a long list in my browser.
 
I think it may help me to put my Kansas research in one group and Iowa in another, generic family history sites in another.
 
 
How do you organize your research and scanning?
