This week I decided to go through my closet and pull out the winter clothes. I laid everything on my bed in different piles. I had a pile of summer clothes(that came out of the storage containers) that I needed to hang up, a pile of winter clothes to put in the containers, and a pile of give away clothes that no longer fit me. The piles may not be very noticeable on the bed but there was a method to my madness, I promise.
All my winter clothes got folded up and put in storage containers. I was actually surprised that all the clothes fit in the 2 containers that I had designated from last year. The reason I am so surprised is because Kathy (my wonderful sister) is always buying me clothes, so I really thought I would have a problem fitting it all in. I think one thing that helped is I only put away those items that were heavy duty winter. I have many shirts and skirts that I can use winter or summer. So my closet is well stocked with clothes from my sister. Here is the finished product... 2 containers to put in the basement and I bag of giveaway or garage sale items.
This week I was even able to tackle my coupons. I went through all the coupon booklets I had from January and February and cut out the ones that weren't expired.
