Challenging Myself!

Hey!
I'm soooo excited, and I'm  totally going to contradict my last post, but........ today was my Wednesday and tomorrow is my Thursday...... you get the point! I have Friday off!! Jon has Thursday and Friday off! Lucky guy! We have been doing tons of spring cleaning, trying our best to get our house back to some kind of manageable order. My head just spins when I don't have control over my house. Messy house = overwhelmed mom! I have finally gotten control over a few rooms, Now its on to our bedroom and closet! OK soooo I'm some what of a sentimental hoarder with my things, if someone gave it to me I feel like I have to keep it forever. I have clothes from the 10th grade things that Jon gave me as gifts, that I will NEVER wear again, but I cant part with and things from my mom. I know its crazy, but for some reason my brain cant rationalize getting rid of clothes and shoes!

We have very little closet space in this house!
It was built in 1968, its pretty obvious that the people who built this house didn't need or didn't have lots of clothes! Our dresser and closets are STUFFED to the max, and we have tubs full in our basement. I know that there are several rules of thumb out there for getting rid of clothes. If you haven't worn it in a year get rid of it ....ect, ect....

So I have made a decision, I'm going to do this! I going to clean out my closet, I'm getting rid of anything that isn't the least bit stylish, I'm getting rid of the size 4's that Ill NEVER fit into again! Its gone, its out!!! Its going to be hard, but I'm going to do it! I'm imagining myself taking a deep breath stepping back and saying awwwww.... when this is all over and done!!!

 So for your viewing pleasure, I'm going to show you the before!!! DON'T laugh I told you its tiny and crammed!!! DON'T LAUGH, but I will allow you to feel sorry for me cause its so small!


 Ill share with you my progress. Hopefully Ill get it done with in the next few days!!
So  what are your secrets for organizing , and how long do you typically keep your clothes, whats your rule!?

 You have a few hours left to enter my giveaway!!! Hurry!!!! A winner will be chosen tomorrow!!!!

  3. My hubs and I don't share a closet, he has the closet in the master bedroom, and I took the smallest closet in the house, in the guest bedroom. He is such a messy closet person I just couldn't stand the thought of guests seeing his messy stuff all over! But we both have so much stuff there was no way we could share.

    I am opposite than you in regards to keeping ... I'm probably way to quick to get rid of stuff. And then a couple weeks later I'm kicking myself because I took *that sweater* to the goodwill. I hate clutter!

    Isn't it weird how out of control we feel with the house is messy? When the house is clean I just feel so much better about life, haha!

  9. So funny - this is where I was at last week. I had a full-on breakdown looking at all the clutter that needed to be organized. It really is overwhelming!

    We started with clothes and I just got rid of anything that didn't fit or that I didn't ever wear. We've got a huge pile in the garage waiting to be donated.

    You can do it - and you'll feel so good once it's done. :)
