This week I thought I'd tackle the upstairs closet, with no expectations of finishing it in one go since a third of the space is taken up by stuff belonging to my better half. Here is the naughty cupboard in all it's chaotic glory:
And this is only half of it.
I started to pull things out and make the usual piles : donate, keep, bin, lives elsewhere. Small progress before my little monkeys needed feeding:
Phew, beading break required!
But when I got back to the task at hand, I found that this bunch of blankets and pillows oh so recently removed from upstairs cupboard ...
... needed to somehow fit in this oh so over-stuffed linen cupboard.
Upstairs cupboard duly abandonned I emptied out all the linen and produced sacks upon sacks of old towels, sheets, duvets, curtains, and so on. Most not good enough to give to charity so the local animal shelter will get first dibs.
Now while the linen cupboard may currently be an awesome oasis of tidiness ...
... this is what has been put aside for my other half to peruse. Heaven forbid I get rid of anything remotely connected to him, no matter how grotty and old! (Still, that means he'll be keeping me for a while yet)!
One small step at a time.
How are my fellow de-clutterers getting on I wonder?
