Recently I was looking through the photos from our adoption file and found pictures of our house from the home study. I stared at them sadly..."this was my house before baby?" It was so organized, so clean!!!! Then yesterday as I read a few favourite mom blogs I noticed it was "Tackle it Tuesday". Everyone was doing all this organizing and I felt so jealous. So today, with Little Lady happily sorting through all the clothes and trash I chucked on the floor, I tackled my master bedroom closet. I know you can't really tell from the pictures but I'm pretty proud of how it turned out. ALMOST as pretty as before baby. Here are some before and after shots from today.
Here are some things you CAN'T see: lots of dust, loads of bedding on top of one shelf, extra boxes, wrapping paper piled on the floor, magazine clippings. a bag of dry clean only clothes on the floor, a pile of clothes that are torn on top of one shelf.
Here are some things you can't see: No dust, clean floor, no extra boxes, no bedding on shelves, no dry clean bags on the floor, Hangers and clothes all sorted according to style (jeans, dresses, dress shirts, sweaters, etc.) and colour coded, no clothes that need to be mended.
I threw one bag of stuff in the trash, got one bag ready for thrift shop, and moved several boxes of stuff into storage. I feel so accomplished!
