Master Disaster!

When the day started you could see the bed...

and then I got a big idea....
I'm going to clean out the Master Closet!
Scott is out of town so I knew that I wouldn't have to
have it COMPLETELY done before
he got home...

I couldn't get to the back of the closet cause there was
a whole lot of junk in there...

You had to turn one way to miss the things hanging on the door
and then turn the other way once you got in...
and don't even think about shutting the door!

There were boxes on top that were storing things that I
no longer needed....

Some boxes on top of Scott's side have not been opened
since we moved in....

Shelves with space that is not being used wisely...
So I decided to take it all out!
At one point Jackson was standing on the bed
behind my clothes saying
"whoa...I can't see you..."

I have a lot to do today...
good thing Scott's not going to come home
to this!

Out it came and I vacuumed around all the
baseboards and wiped down all the shelves.

It's amazing the things you find when you clean out your closet!
Clothes with tags still on them...
mysterious boxes...
what do we have here???

Hmmm....let's see...
I think I bought this to give to Leisa one year
for her birthday...

Oh my!
I think I'll just keep it for myself.

As the day went on, I finally got back
to moving things into the closet.
If I had not worn them lately,
I immediately pulled them out.
I could still go through and pull out some more
but I wanted to get the bed cleared off so
I had somewhere to sleep tonight!

I tried to sort clothes by type...
sweater, jackets, pants, t shirts and so on...

It was hard to get a good picture of everything hanging
neatly, because I was straddling the large pile of
clothes that I had laid out to donate.

Still trying to figure out the best way to sort...
by type or by outfit?
What to do, what to do?

I still have my work cut out for me...
Shoes and shoes to put away...

The bathroom is a mess...

I have a stack of clothes to organize and donate

I also took my clothes off of the plastic tube hangers
and put them all on thin line, velvet hangers.
I had bough three or four boxes of them from
Costco a while back...
wish I had some more...
or maybe I need to clean out some more clothes.
Yeah...I think that would be best.

But in the end....
I could get to the bed!!!

I am trying to come up with some ideas
on how to store my jewelry and other
things in the closet.
I want to try to find some baskets
and other storage goodies to make happy little homes
for all that stuff I drug out today!

Once I am done with my side
I plan on hitting up Scott's side.
I don't think his will be as hard.

Hopefully, I will be able to get this all done
before Scott comes home on Friday.
I think I can, I think I can....

Our Financial challenge today was to create
a Budget Box.
I'm on it!
A place to keep all of your bills,
paid and un-paid,
check books, stamps, envelopes...
everything you need to keep your bills
together and make sure they are paid on time.
I had gotten all of these together when I made my
but, I was thinking that it was taking up
too much space in the binder.
I had thought about getting a second binder just
for financial things,
but I think the Hanging File Box would work better.
I plan on getting all of my things together tomorrow
while I am out.  Since gas has gotten so high,
I do find myself planning my trips out.
And after I cleaned out the closet today I realized that I
need a clothing envelope for me!
There is more than enough in there for me to wear.

Well, I am off to bed.
Austin is participating in a local symposium tomorrow
with his Robotics club
and we have to leave
in the morning.
