Two sources of inspiration this week: My friend, Randi, blogged about simplicity, and my friend, Laura, spoke to our MOPS group on Friday about organizing your home…both of which lit the fire under my tushie to clean out our bedroom closet. I paid each of the kids $1 to help me take out everything but clothes and shoes so I could sort through it all.
The irony is that we got our first draft of our new house plans on Friday afternoon, and it includes several large walk-in closets. I’m thinking – ditch the large closets, save the square footage, and just get rid of all the junk! We dragged out things from our closet that should have never, ever been there in the first place. But it feels so good to get rid of all we don’t need! (And, yes, Gretchen – if you look closely, you will see the glow-in-the-dark Winnie the Pooh pajamas that are finally leaving my house and taking all the baaaad Christmas morning memories with them!)
Maybe next week, we’ll tackle the clothes and shoes, then the under-the-stairs closet. Good-bye, worthless junk. Hello, clean & simple!
