So, during Geddy's nap time, I buckled down and decided to take care of business. Sadly, it was a much bigger on taking than I realized. So much so, that Geddy woke up and "helped" me (I am pretty sure it took twice as long because he was so helpful).

When I started this project, I was thinking it would be 2 hours long but once Geddy woke up, we had to take lots of breaks or he would get upset. That meant this became an entire day project. I ended up donating a giant garbage bag full of clothes, which I was proud of because I struggle to get rid of clothing. I also donated 4 pairs of shoes. Huzzah! It was actually a big relief to free up a bit of space. And as I mentioned before, I was pleased with how much I got rid of, it was a big step for me (I only seem to be a pack rat when it comes to clothing, so odd).

The biggest problem with this project, was that it spread like wild fire into every room. We have such a small space that it seems cluttered so quickly. So during our breaks, we would be avoiding large piles of clothing or shoes. I was definitely relieved to put them away.

I was incredibly happy with the results. I have so much stuff because of my past years of working retail and, like I said, I rarely get rid of clothes (it's a problem). Even though I don't shop like I used to, we're still jam packed. I try and color coordinate my tops and such but it still looks fairly jumbled. With my shoes, I try and make it so I can see all of them or else I wear the same pairs over and over again. I still have some shoes in boxes on the top shelf but I label or know which pair is which.

There you have it! You may have hated this post but I get a high from organizing crap like this so I thought I would document it.
