Reclaimed my closet!

Woohoo! Yesterday the kids and I did some reorganizing. Moved a couple heavy duty shelving units to my son's closet. His is the only one big enough for extra storage. Anyway I badly needed somewhere for my canning jars to go. Now they all fit neatly. Then went through the stuff we pulled out.

Being on a roll I then got started on my closet. While probably the size of my son's closet my husband, younger son, and I share it. By the time we were done with both closets I tossed two garbage bags full of faded, worn, outgrown clothes and other misc items. Then had space to store my yarn and fabric. We can now comfortably close the closet doors!

Now to do my kitchen and dining room. The shelving units were in my kitchen. So must go through what was once on them.

Once done with the kitchen and dining room I will almost be down to only what I plan on keeping for one reason or another. Just cannot have anymore hobbies.

Right now I knit, crochet, sew, can, and homeschool. Okay homeschooling is not a hobby but it does require 'lots of stuff' just like my hobbies. I am resolving to use the library more. That way we have less stuff we need to find permanent room for. Oh, and no more craft or cooking books right? Umm, well I will try at least.

Re: Reclaimed my closet!

We don't celebrate Christmas. But, with it being Christmas everything is closed. Therefore perfect time to declutter as I have no errands that 'must be done right now' and pull me away from much needed housework/decluttering. Good thing too. My mother just called. She said my brother will be dropping by next weekend. Sooner I get done the better.
