Time seems to have slipped away once again. Today I thought I’d blog about my closet that I cleaned out last week. Actually I took the photos meaning to blog it and then realised I hadn’t…old age setting in I guess.
Anyhow people were amazed when I told them that I spent “3” days organizing the closet but I have to admit that although I worked at it steadily it was in between breaks and daily stuff. I managed to get most stuff off the floor and clear out some space for the clothes hanging in there. I had an incredible amount of stuff on the floor because there was no space up top so once the stuff on the floor was gone I had about another two foot section that could be used to hang clothes on the rack.
I basically put back everything that was in there but did it using plastic storage boxes ($230.00 worth of them). Hmm…I lie, I did buy three under-the-bed storage bins so I guess not everything went back in. I didn’t take a before picture so can’t give you perspective but I do have the afters to give an idea.
One huge bin of the remnants, discovered some full balls in there. I was going to donate this stuff to the church group until I realised that I had enough to make several afghans so decided to work on it myself.
The thing with the bins is that you can stack stuff in them that would otherwise fall out or down off the shelves and it looks neat and tidy so it does free up more room. Another bonus is that it’ll keep the dust off. I had to vacumn some dust off of one unfinished project at one point of the clean-up. I found a lot of usable items that I had forgotten about. All in all you’re looking at about 30 years worth of collected craft materials. Some of the yarn left-overs go back to when I was 14 years old. I’m hoping to crochet some of those granny square afghans, lol, I just bought four more balls of black to do this. More yarn to use up yarn? Works for me.
