Cleaning out Our Closet

I literally spent an entire afternoon just cleaning out the closet my husband and I share. I've been putting off this task for days, and today I finally forced myself to do it and be done. I even restrained myself from using the PC just so I could finish the monumental (or so I thought) task ahead of me.

There are a couple of things I do like about cleaning closets. One is that I'm able to find clothes that I like and haven't worn in months, primarily due to the fact that I don't know where they are and I'm too lazy to dig them from underneath the closet.

Second, I also find some odd stuff that my daughter Keisha has kept hidden in the closet. There was even one time we turned her room upside down to find the tv's remote control, only to find out weeks later that she hid it in the closet.

Third, now that I have everything organized, everything is so much easier to find. I know where things are and have an easy time finding them. I also have no trouble looking for a pair of socks for Henry's trips, my shorts, or a shirt to wear when I go grocery shopping. The only question is, as my husband asked, for how long will we be able to keep the closet as organized as it is right now? We have a bet that 2 weeks would be at the most, but we'll keep you posted just in case. :-)
