Hello, hello! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend, and aren’t suffering too much from the loss of an hour! I had big intentions for my weekend, but something happened to derail them.
So I had a few hours that weren’t dedicated to a soccer game, birthday parties, piano lesson, laundry, wondering who the Bachelor would choose and trying to finish Season 2 of Dexter. I wandered towards Babygirl’s Room to see what project awaited me, and passed by the Linen Closet in the process. Or the strange corner cabinet that doubles as the Linen Closet/Hoard of All Random Things. For some reason, I felt the urge to just peek inside.
Two minutes later I had this:
Actually I had about twice this much stuff pulled out, it just didn’t fit in a single picture. What is all that and why is it in the Linen Closet?! And why did I chose this weekend to clean it out?!? That’s the problem, I didn’t make the choice, it just happened.
Now that Babygirl has a big bed too, there are five beds in my house, all different sizes, and the mounds of sheets were just too ridiculous to navigate. With projects for Babygirl’s Room forgotten, my true
anal organizational nature kicked in, and thirty minutes later I had pretty, glorious piles!
I simply wrapped each set of sheets in string and tied a tag differentiating their sizes. Purging is one of my favorite activities, so I had a party tossing all the unused items in a bag for donation. After finding proper places for everything, my Linen Closet looked like this:
Does a view like this bring you as much satisfaction as it does me? I’m feeling a little vulnerable exposing my OCD side to you, not to mention the
skeletons inside of our closets! But I was fairly proud of myself for resisting the urge to paint the shelves or doors or something, anything!!!
And these urges typically don’t die quickly, so I went ahead and cleaned up the cabinet in the Master Bathroom.
It’s quite possible I’ve scared a few of you away with my compulsion (one time it struck and I ended up with a pink Coat Closet), but for those of you who share my illness, let’s gaze upon some deliciously organized Linen Closets!
Maybe it’s because Spring is in the air, but I’m feeling the urge to simplify and organize! Please tell me you can relate?!
