Saturday Puttering

I have ignored this closet for far too long
some things untouched for years!

I want to paint it 
since that won't be happening soon
figured at least I could clean it out

so today I'm alternating between cleaning
hooking little simple pieces
(about 6 x 6)
preparing invoices for my booklets...

tomorrow I will take the designs to make copies

back to the closet
it used to be worse
over time I have used up many bottles of polish and cleaners
shampoo, hand lotion 

but the light bulbs!
they never seem to end
my parents had enough for the whole neighborhood
I have been placing all "like" things together
so brought another 15 packages
of light bulbs in from the garage
will check and see if they work then donate

Hope your having a wonderful day
this morning it was cool and breezy
with windows open 
I could hear all the chimes Mom had around the house
of course it made me smile

It's a mess now, but what a wonderful closet!
It is a gorgeous day in northern Ohio :)

Messy or not, that is one enviable closet.

Oh Kelley....I just cleaned out my pantries, I have two but they are small, a couple of weeks ago. I completely emptied them out, washed down the shelving and then went to the Dollar Tree and bought some great bins....labeled them and so far I have kept them organized.....I even used Dollar Tree labels for where my broom, dustpan, mop, and hammer husband never puts anything back in the right place...I'm hoping this will help!! Plus...I dont over buy things anymore...I just don't have the room and most of the time, with the exception of toilet paper, it gets pitched after a while. So...good won't take as long as you think it will! For inspiration.....go to YouTube....tons of great videos on organizing!! That closet will be great once you have a handle on it!!

I wish I had a utility closet, our house is short on closet space and have to shove things were I can.
Nice to clean out though, always feels freeing and hearing the chimes is a nice memory of your mom.

Wish some of your energy would visit me. By the time I get the grass cut this morning will probably call it a day.

I hate cleaning things out...but do feel much better when I've done it. Have fun! xo
