What does a mama do after getting up too early to make sure everything was packed, sitting in the airport for 2 hrs with 3 jittery kids, listening to Simon talk back about FIVE times, and fighting DMV traffic after not getting any sleep on a flight when she gets home from vacation? She clears out her closet for the biggest purge to date that’s what.
Before the clearing….
I should have probably taken more pictures of the floor. It was lined with boxes of junk, clothing, shoes and art supplies. I also found a folding table, an iron and sooo many other knick knacks I didn’t know we owned. I happily packed several bags for Goodwill.
Alvin helped me clear out the clutter and all of us danced around the empty space. Even though I’ve always thought the space was a decent size, I couldn’t believe how spacious the closet truly is. The kids begged for an art or play room to occupy the newly empty space. It sounded like a nice idea but The Hubs and I decided to dedicate it to storing clothes (I reduced my wardrobe by nearly 50%!) and a mini office for our writing.
I still have a lot to do and will reveal the pictures in a later post.
