Cleaning/Purging/Organizing - Starting the bedroom closet

July 9th, 2012 at 07:39 pm

I added a new catagory to my blog today. "Cleaning/Purging/Organizing"

Lately I have been spending a lot of time at a friends house that runs a very small daycare from home. The house is crazyness. Every inch is packed with toys, clothes, craft/art supplies and misc everything. It drives me NUTS when I am there cause I just want to organize the crap out of it....it's near hoarders status (without the dirtyness of it). So it has really got it in my head about organizing and having too much stuff. I normally do pretty good with purging things as I like to constantly be weeding out for the rummage sale and throw things away pretty quickly once their worth is gone. But I could always do better and have been feeling overwhelmed with the amount of stuff in our house lately. So I am going to try to go room by room, drawer by drawer, closet by closet to get rid of things, rediscover the forgotten, and organize and clean my home!

I actually tried to start this a few weeks ago, but I already know it's going to be a very long process as I want to do it right and completely. So I started with one of the fullest places in the house...My closet. I took all of my tank tops out of my closet and tried on every single one....then a few weeks later I did this with my nice shirts. Very exhausting!! Once I had gone through them all I folded them all neatly and put them back in color coded rows (DORK ALERT!). I already have a whole shelf cleared off just from doing those.

Here is what I ended up with so far

Sick how much clothes I have...and that doesn't count the T-shirts, long sleeves, cardigans, hoodies, sweaters, or any of my hanging clothes..etc
So that is where I am at. Already have 35 items to get rid of at the next rummage sale.

Next I am going to tackle my shorts since it is hot as heck here and I need to see what I have to wear!

    Whenever we watch Hoarders I always want to clean house...it is good motivation.

    Just this weekend I took 7 trash bags filled with clothes, belts, shoes and toys to the Goodwill. Living in Katy, TX I don't make much at a garage sale maybe .50/shirt so it makes more sense for me to fill out the inventory list that is linked to TurboTax and I get all that money back in taxes for donations. Now I need to vaccuum my closet and get in the corners.
