Keeping me honest

When Chantal posted her corner of shame I thought maybe I should do the same thing for my closet of shame. Maybe showing you how disorganized it is will help motivate me to actually do something about it. Because I'm having a hard time getting to my clothes. (and do you think I have enough? egads! And this is only MY half of the closet. My husband has is own, VERY VERY NEAT half.)

And while I'm at it, maybe I'll tackle this tiny closet off of my closet (yes, we have an enormous closet. be jealous. it's OK) that I used to scrapbook in, but it's just too dang small, and now it just holds piles of crafty stuff.

Will Painted Maypole be able to walk through the closet floor once more? Will she purge some clothes? Will she do anything about the boxes of stuff she meant to organize last summer?

Stay tuned....

That looked EXACTLY like my closet did (only smaller). I wish you luck. Posting photos on my blog seemed to motivate me. I am sure it will do the same for you!

Take your computer in there and put on a show that you love to listen to. Splendid Table or Prairie Home Companion maybe. Take a bunch of trash bags for the Goodwill donations. You'll be out in an hour or two. I should know. Mine gets out of control and this is my bi annual ritual.
Good luck this always works for me....

Can you get to Narnia from there?

Wow. Dude, that is a HUGE closet. Think of all the potential and adorable storage solutions! Seriously, wrap some shoe boxes in lovely wrapping or go and get some coordinating photo boxes at Michaels, baby food jars filled with butons and bobbles, sorted by color, your clothes lined up by color...ooh, I'm tingly all over!

Also, I have a post up about a neighborhood hero who was killed last week. Will that work as a MM?

I love it when people make me feel normal.

And DANG! That is a huge closet. When your closet has a closet, that is impressive.

Posting photos on the blog does motivate.

another good thing said...

Part of me got a little anxious to see that, while the bigger part of me got really excited to think of the possibilities.
You go girl. Toss, donate and fold.
