I rolled all my husband's t-shirts so that they will fit into one drawer.   And I rolled all his jeans and shorts.  Now nothing is buried and he can see everything he has in one shot. I also bought drawer dividers and rolled all his skivvies.  Everything is rolled!  He loves it!  Oh, I also purchased an over the door hook rack for my bedroom door so that we can hang things that don't really get put away everyday, like my robe and his work hat, etc...

Hey Everybody,

I'm giving you all a short update of what's been going on in my life.  I've been bitten by the "Spring Cleaning Bug".  I've cleaned and organized before, BUT never at this level.  I don't  know what's going on with me, but my passion right now is to get this house in order.  I've cleaned and organized, my kitchen cupboards, the pantry, my linen closet, my closet (no small feat there), the bathroom cupboards and my bookshelves.  I've purged boxes and boxes of stuff, thrown out bags of garbage and purchased bins and containers to organize what I've kept.  And I feel great!  I haven't touched some of those places in 20 years, since we've moved into this house.

I feel much lighter and I've found things that I forgot I had and didn't even know that I had.  I know where everything is and it feels wonderful.  I recommend you take a cupboard or closet and go thru it, it's fun.  Keep only what you love.

Oh, I also purchased a planner, calendar to get my time under control as well, since I can't remember anything.  I'll post of video of what I'm using soon.  I also started a home binder (found this idea on youtube, look it up).

I'll post some pics of the after shots soon.  I was so on fire to do this that I didn't stop long enough to take before pictures, just imagine utter chaos and excess and you'll have an idea of what it looked like before.

I'm hoping that this Spring Cleaning episode will lead me to a higher level of creativity.

See you all soon.
