Cleaning and Organizing

By ben  

Jenelle and I are going through every nook and cranny in the house to get rid of old things and stay organized. Our plan is to visit one area of the house each day over a 40-day period. So far, it’s going well, but we haven’t got to the really cluttered places yet.

Today, I went through the closet in the bedroom that has become “Ben’s room”, as it has running stuff, music stuff, and lots of other stuff that is used almost exclusively by me. We also have a file cabinet in there with a bunch of paperwork.

Anyway, inside the closet were multiple items from high school. I am keeping my letter jacket and a tennis sweatshirt, but these other items have to go. The shirts are really dingy, and the blue warm-up suit is, in a bit of a surprise, too BIG. I’ll always have the pictures and the memories. The stuff can go.

    What a great idea! I have soooo many PILES everywhere and in cupboards and drawers. I need to clean them all and it seems very daunting. Breaking it down to one nook or cranny a day really makes it less overwhelming. I may try this in the fall!
