I still have a huge container of pictures that I need to identify that I've taken over the 20+ years that I've been married, not counting the 8 years I've been digital. It's considerable. But that's another project.
I got rid of 2 empty boxes and 5 bags of trash/recycling at the dump today. There are 6 bags of donations waiting for JJ to take upstairs and into the garage.
Here's the closet now...with a couple of containers added.
There are many blankets on the shelf. I may put them in a container to neaten things up a bit.
On the advice of my friend Brooke from Cleansweepers, I got a container for the many overnight bags and totes. Only the most-often suitcase and my overnight bag is out--laying on top. It looks much better. Thanks, Brooke! Plus, I decided to put the box of Beanie Babies in a container. It looks better without the overstuffed cardboard box.
Here are my archive boxes with all the old pictures. The boxes to the right are old newspapers. I thought I had bought archive boxes big enough for newspapers, but I was wrong. Next time I'm in Rockville, I'm heading back to the Container Store!
A couple of treasures I found today:
My Cabbage Patch kid! This one was special...she was handmade by the mom of my brother's best friend. I don't remember if she ever had a name, since i was in college when I got her. But I loved her so. I just found her shoes tonight, and I'll make sure she gets them on in the morning!
I also found some Thanksgiving fabric with turkeys that I intended to make an apron out of.
I already made it! Completely forgotten that I had made this apron already. How sad that's it's been in the closet how many years? I could have been using it every holiday.
I'll be sure and use it this year!
It's slow going, but it's progress!
