Those are just his tops. His heavy jackets are in "his" room and the second drawer in the dresser is his PJ's and bottoms. He only has 5 bottoms and 3 pairs of PJ's. I try to do a load of laundry everyday so I don't feel like we have too little. I actually can pair down his clothes even more!

The rest of the food is in a small pantry. Nothing much in there since we have been on vacation! It also holds my canning jar and my son's lunchbox with reusable baggies. We don't use paper towels just black microfibers and flour sack towels from target. I have lots of my food in Kerr jars since I use the bulk section mainly.

I purged yesterday, but am purging more after seeing these. I loved the simplicity, thanks so much for posting these, what a breath of fresh air.

Well that explains it. We lived in Deluz for three years

Re: Picture Overload =)

Someone slap me, I keep looking back to this and want to get rid of more! Grrrr, I'm out of town now and won't get back till Tues. and I'm just overthinking every item I own! I still have to fold my linen closet I have two pairs of white sheets for each bed, two extra pillows for guests, and my quilt my grandma made. Then my coat closet needs to be purged! OCD! LoL
