My bedroom...the catchall for, well, everything. I often start to organize it only to stop and say that I will finish the next day. But then it doesn't ever get finished and we have another party or whatever and MORE stuff gets put into the room. I am so tired of the clutter. It is not restful and my clothes are always wrinkled.
I have employed a different system this time in tackling the clutter. I have realized that it will take more than one day, especially since I have a 3 year-old "helping" me. ahem. I have out away in one bin all clothes that are not the right size right now, but that I will wear again. If, for whatever reason, they are not clothes I will wear again (trend over, too short, too ugly) I am dividing into Vets bag and possible consignment bag. I have never sold anything through consignment, but I know lots of people who do. While you may not be making tons of money, there is potential to get some gas money or maybe a new lipstick. :) I need to use my dresser and my closet more efficiently. That involves actually folding the clothes and putting them in the drawers after they come out of the dryer. I know, it seems like the normal thing to do and I am probably making people cringe right now. Unfortunately, I tend to live out of my laundry baskets. It's not a great way to live. It is probably the main reason my room gets out of control. And plus my clothes get wrinkled and I "lose" clothes only to rediscover them at the bottom of the basket. So the goal is to get all the clothes put away and keep it that way. And every time I do laundry, the clothes get folded and put in the drawers. I can do it.
That is the plan, for now. I just took a little break so that I could sit for a minute. Back up I go!
