Seeing as my darling Hubby took care of the Week One challenge, I thought I would get a jump on next week's challenge. Except I forgot which one it was, and dove head first into The 'Dreaded' Challenge this morning.
Before pics (please be nice):
First half of the bedroom closet. Notice the boxes and clothing piled in front.
The other side. Lots of space to hang clothes....
My little helper.
So I got down to business. I picked up all the laundry that was just laying on the floor (I spared you all a picture of this). I pulled stuff out bit by bit, and started sorting, purging and generally being disgusted with myself for letting it get this bad.
- 3 and a half garbage bags of clothing to be donated
- 5 grocery sized bags of garbage tossed out
- 2 dressers cleaned out
- 1 box of summer clothing set aside for me & hubby
- half a small box of items to be donated or given away
- yarn and plastic canvas stash gone through and sorted
- 8 loads of laundry to be done this week
I can see the floor of the closet! Yay!!
Utilising the space as was intended.
Donations, donations. :)
Boxes; 1 full of junk, 2 empty that were just taking up space, now gone.
As an added bonus, I got the top of hubby's dresser cleaned off. My yarn and plastic canvas stash is to the left of this dresser, now in a much neater state. I will be able to find stuff when I want to, cuz now I know where it all is. :)
The top of my dresser cleared of the stuff it had accumulated.
The inside of my dresser is cleaned out as well, so I will have somewhere to put all my clothes once I am done the impending laundry marathon.
Once I got the closet done, I was feeling so good about this accomplishment, that the entire bedroom got the same treatment. I purged, dusted, sorted, tossed garbage, vaccuumed, cleaned the mirror and even pulled out junk from under the bed. Part way through, hubby came in the bedroom and cleaned out his dresser as well. I now believe in miracles!
In summary, it is now the 6th of February, and I already have completed 3 out of the 4 weekly challenges. This makes me so very happy.
I think I'll wait until the laundry is caught up before I start in on the kitchen.
