First thing on the agenda of cleaning was to clear everything out of it. And I mean everything. What a mess. Secondly, I decided that if I haven't used it in a year it goes, eccept for heirlooms. I filled one box with garage sale items and a garbage bag with the rest. As I was refilling the shelves I had to decide once again if I really wanted to keep each item that I had decided to keep. If not, it went into the garage sale box.
Deco items went back on the top and middle shelf along with hobby supplies. Tablecloths and bath and kitchen paper supplies on the bottom shelf along with odds and ends. On the floor of the closet is my sewing machine, and more deco items in boxes.
I'm really proud of myself for getting this done. Last summer was the last time I cleaned it out and boy did it need it. I know this isn't a very interesting post and you're thinking that I must be really hard up for anything news worthy. You're right. But maybe, just maybe, I've inspired you to clean out one of your closets. I know one thing, I wouldn't want to clean out closets for a living.
