I finally decided to join in on today's assignment, complete with pictures. I plan to go back and do all the other assignments as well. She started this series right after I came home from the hospital with Jacob, so I was on light duty for a while due to my c-section. Now that I'm feeling back to normal, I hope to do more of these tasks...and post my pictures for motivation/accountability!
So today's assignment was to clean out closets. With a newborn on an every-two-hours-chow-fest, I only got one closet done, but I'm motivated to do the rest.
I cannot believe I'm going to post this, but here goes.
This is my coat closet by the front door. As you can see, it tends to accumulate shoes and coats.
MoneySavingMom also asks that you find at least 7 things to get rid of. So here's picture proof! I got rid of all the wire hangers, a few plastic ones that had broken, a mesh bag of some sort, the two pair of shoes I thought were already gone, and 3 pairs of steel toe boots that we used to use at the fire station. (For those of you who don't know, Buddy and I volunteer at our local station!) When Buddy got home from work, he also purged 2 more pairs of boots, but those didn't make it into my picture.
Finally, I swept out the closet. Then I got down on my hands and knees with some cleanser and hand-mopped the closet floor. Then I hung up the coats so all the hangers were facing the same way (pet peeve) and put the shoes we were keeping back into our closet where they belong. And the closet has become the new home of our vacuum, rather than keeping it in the garage.
