The title of this post is "Spring Cleaning Part I" in hopes that there will be a part II, III, and possibly even IV.
Before I get into the spring cleaning part of the post, however, I'd like to share this picture of my little lady:
I know some of you only look at my blog to see pictures of Shyla so here you go. I like to call this picture the "I'm practicing this facial expression as a toddler so it is perfection by the time I am a teenager" look.
Okay, now to toot my own horn for a few minutes!
Technically today is the first day of my spring break. I'm not teaching inter-session this time because I am pregnant and getting tired very easily. Also, I want to spend this time with Shyla and also preparing for Fetus to arrive in a few months.
When we moved last July we totally downsized in our master closet. In addition, with the upcoming arrival of Fetus, we can no longer use his/her closet in addition to our own. This meant I had to get organized and purge. And purge I did.
This is what our closet looked like last Saturday morning:
- I own way too many clothes
- I should have bought stock in NY&Co. and The Gap years ago
- I have way too many clothes
That being said, I went through every piece of clothing in the closet (except Stevie's, of course) and organized!
The end result was a Trailblazer full of 4 huge bags and 5 medium sized bags of women's clothes for Goodwill. I dropped them off today.
Tada! Now my clothes can breathe and I can see the carpet!
I'm not quite done yet....I'd like to get a small set of drawers to put to the right of the jeans rack to utilize that empty space.
So, Spring Cleaning Part I down. A few more to go! Stay posted!
