Krista participated in the 2009 BPS class and she agreed to let me share her space pictures. To see more images visit her 2peas gallery, thanks Krista
She shares her top 3 takeaways from this experience
1. Don't keep buying canned tomatoes if you aren't going to eat them anytime soon. As you purge, think about what space you need to make just because you keep buying things and you don't know where they will go, and you don't use them. You get frustrated because you don't have any space, and then you don't even want to be in your space because it's so overwhelming.

2. In order to be most inspired, you need to know your own preferences and strengths. Your scrapbooking space is for YOU, and your preferences may be different that your friends or other workspaces you see. Be aware of how YOU scrapbook, pay attention to the things YOU do, the way you go about creating a page. Keep those things nearest to your workspace, to make them easy to find and easy to put away.

3. Organization is NOT storage! Organization is how you place the items into the storage container in a certain order. Before you go buy any storage piece, take everything out and know how much stuff you have to store, then organize it according to your preferences, and then go get the storage containers to fit what you need. When in doubt whether to purge or store it, try putting it into cold storage for a short while and see if you truly miss it or need it. Be sure to follow up on it after that time, and keep filters in place so that you don't stock up on those canned tomatoes you aren't going to need anytime soon!
