Mama is on a roll!!
Craft nook ~ Done!
I picked these shelves up at target last week
one was intended for my closet but I ended up needing it here more.
Everything has been thinned out and each bin and drawer neatly organized.
One of my favorite things that grace the shelves is this old photo of my girls..
such sweet little faces!!!!
I've got my romance manuscripts handy and ready to work on.
There are about 600 pages in that white binder that need to be edited and finished before this year ends.
Sheeeesh... one job down!!!
Before all of my secrets come out of the closet and you get the wrong idea...
I am always cleaning.
I just don't tend to spend to much time on the stuff that people can't see.
Like cupboards, drawers, closets and basements..
I promise you
I am NOT a HOARDER!
Having said that..
all of this stuff came out of one little closet.
This was a job that I have been dreading for
a while years.
I find my closet overwhelming
So.. I just close the door and ignore it for a while.
Or until I need that one shoe that is buried on the bottom somewhere.
First thing I did was start pulling everything out.
Piles and piles of shoes, purses, clothes, scarves, and more shoes and purses and scarves.
I'm starting to see a pattern here.
I think I like shoes and purses and scarves.
Once everything was out and I nearly killed myself tripping over everything
(Ok.. I'm exaggerating ~I only fell once and twisted my ankle twice.)
I realized that there was a lot of wasted space above the rod where the clothes hang.
And that rod, by the way, is a peace of crap.
No wonder the hangers always fell off.. It's a fence post.
and yes, guilty again.. it came with the house 30 years ago.
Leaving my bedroom a huge disaster,
I was off to my favorite store, Home depot, in search of new rods.
I bought two, the first one hung close to the ceiling and the 2nd midway down.
I also picked up these colorful Martha Stewart bins for small accessories.
scarves, swimsuits, purses and hats, gloves and mittens
keep, trash, goodwill ~ that was my method.
I told myself that I didn't need any more then 10.
10 pair of shoes.. 10 purses.. 10 sweaters..
I ended up with 2 bags of garbage
and this stuff for the goodwill.
Of course I had to keep the hot pink leather jacket and the faux leopard print coat
and all of my trade mark polka dots! : )
Cue the white christmas lights..
The closet is clean and organized!!
And holy cow..
I can actually open the door all of the way!! : )
Happy Organizing friends.
My next target.. the cupboards.
