Let's get organized!!!I saw this closet organizer last weekend at Ross for $8 and thought alright, a cheap way to bring some order to my messy closet. I got it home and tried to figure out what would leave me the most room after I stacked things in the organizer. I decided that putting all my jeans, capris, and shorts on the shelf would work best. I had started pulling out my summer clothes during this process and putting away my heaviest of sweaters hoping and praying that this SPRING will be a warm one!!! This little side trip added about 2 hours to my chore though, but it was worth it.
Now that night I got to thinking, if I added a shelf to the top of my closet I would have even more room-YEAH! So yesterday I went to buy a shelf, only $20, and got to work.
Hanging the shelf took me a while and I had to call in reinforcements (Thanks Dad),
after tearing everything apart and reorganizing everything I finally finished 8 hours later! I can't believe it took me that long, but it looks so much better.
I will not show you the other side because it still has about 8 boxes of things I want to keep. 2 boxes of movies, a box of my favorite paperbacks, a small box of cassettes which will become obsolete soon I'm sure. Then I've got a box of yearbooks and HS school stuff and 2 boxes from childhood. I know it sounds like a lot of crap, but it's not crap I'm willing to part with yet. I have to say on my behalf, I did throw a lot of stuff out yesterday and have a big garage sale pile going. I would like to get some matching storage bins down the line, budget permitting, to put the rest of my things in, instead of cardboard!!!
Now I have to tell you I'm not just in the mood to clean my closet. I'm also getting to revamp my blog in the next week and yes I'm going to go public. So hold on to your girdles girls and watch for my relaunch into the public domain!!!
