I recently cleared out a bunch of too small clothes and passed them along to the girls who live upstairs but I now know that I need to do an even more extensive purging. The problem is likely amplified by the fact that I unpacked all of my spring/summer clothes before I packed for my trip and did not yet put away the winter clothes. So, yes there are way more clothes in my room than on a normal basis since I usually put the off-season clothes away in storage. Excuses aside, I have too.much.crap.
So, it was two days before my trip that I decided I would be doing some minimizing when I returned. Today is the day, folks. Well, more like this weekend is the weekend. The fabulous dude is heading north to his folks place this weekend to help replace their roof so it will just be me, my iTunes and a couple garbage bags.
It is not only my clothing that needs to be revisited. The organization of our home really got away from me over the course of the past four months. The busiest semester I have ever had got the best of me and things got out of hand. But, I will leave that be for now. You'll see what I mean as I go.
The lists of areas I am planning to tackle are as follows (in order of importance):
~ Bathroom Cupboards
~ Kitchen Pantry and Spice Cupboard
~ Both of our dressers
~ Both of our closets
~ Spare room/office
I am telling you all of this as a way of holding myself accountable. If I promise you all that I am doing some major spring cleaning and that I will be letting you know how it goes along the way, then I know that I will be motivated to actually make some progress. I have been snapping some before pictures and will be sure to get some during and after photos as well.
I am putting my pride and embarrassment aside and will be showing you
