I’ve been working on my Fall Goals for the past few weeks. Some of them were quite easy, and others have been much harder. I’ve gone through the clothes boxes under my bed, and it was surprising to me how many of them were full of really really old clothes. I mean clothes that haven’t seen the light of day for many years. Some of these I kept (since I now fit into them), but the majority of them were given away.
I’ve cleaned out the shower in my downstairs bathroom, and it’s usable again. That was a huge undertaking, since this meant that I had to empty out the bottom of the closet in there in order to store my many large bottles of water (in case we lose our electricity for weeks again). There is nothing wrong with being prepared. That closet still needs to be cleaned out, but the bottom of it is done. Yay!
None of my closets are walk-in. Can you imagine the mess I could make with that much space?
The closet in my upstairs bathroom is cleaned out. I’ve taken loads of white (white!) towels to the donation box along with sheets that don’t fit any beds we own. I don’t know how I end up with this “stuff”, but I do. I’ve also gone through all my shampoo, conditioner, toothpaste and soap. This is now organized, and I know what I need (nothing), and where all the accumulated extras are. I don’t need to buy any of that for quite a while. Also, I’ve got tons of shaving cream and Q-tips and cotton balls. All set there!
On the other hand, I still need to have a go at my bedroom closet, and the rest of the downstairs bathroom closet. I’ll work on the bathroom closet this week, and maybe even the bedroom one, too.
It’s amazing how good it can feel to have some of this done. Windows still need washing, but my list is getting a little smaller. How have you been doing with your goals list? Let me know in the comments below. And, don’t forget to celebrate what you have gotten done!
