So procrastination set in. I had taken everything out of the closet that was frustrating me, and I decided to bake. I baked the most lovely raspberry chocolate oatmeal muffins ever off of Simple bites. So addictive! So addictive in fact Brendan and I ate the whole batch. Usually when I bake anything I save a few for Brendan and I and then I go give the rest to friends and family. I love to bake but its hard when its just the two of us eating it. While my amazing muffins were baking in the oven I decided to check out more of Simple Bites , great recipes, great articles and very inspiring. This lead me to Simple Mom where the challenge to declutter was happening. I loved the idea moms all over the world taking time to declutter their homes! Right up my alley. Unfortunately their first hot spot was the master closet, I was already in the middle of clearing it out. (I love to purge) So here are my sort of before pictures:
This is the shelf of chaos as I like to call it!
To give you some perspective this is half of the stuff I took out of the middle of the floor.
So what does my closet look like now. Not terribly different but I have donated several blankets to the Goodwill along with a garbage bag full of baby clothes and garbage bag full of Adult clothes. Here are some photos.
I also relocated all guest bed linens to a under the bed storage container.
