This is the year...


... for purging. Hopefully.

After the long holiday break... Happy New Year y'all!!... we began with Christmas stuff. We have boxes and boxes and more boxes of Christmas decorations. Indoor, outdoor, all around the door-door decorations!

So, before packing it all away this year, we added more boxes to what we already had!! Not really, but it sure seemed that way. We bought some plastic storage boxes (red ones!) to reorganize and purge things as we went, and in the process managed to dispose of several cardboard boxes and stuff we no longer want or use. For the moment, everything has a place and is in its place on a designated shelf. We'll see how long that lasts!

Next up is the overflow linen closet downstairs. And the bedroom closets. And my dresser drawers. And the books...
oh lordy, the books! The seniors home will have plenty of reading material this year!

I think I feel a headache coming on ...

That's funny Marianne, I was just saying this morning, after storing away everything in new RED BINS!...that I really need to get the linen closed cleaned out, it's such a disorganized mess! Oh well, great minds think alike!

I was on an organizing kick myself recently. It sure looks pretty when it's all neatly stowed! I am trying to be disciplined about putting things back in their new homes. So far, so good... My incentive is that I love the way it looks all tidy.
