Spring Cleaning

I am starting off this Spring with a super duper thorough Spring Clean.  I read this fabulous book back in January and it inspired me.  Tsh is running a hot spot declutter challenge over on her blog so I thought that was a great place to start.  Today, I had my carpets cleaned so these are not "true" before photos, but this is what I've got:

My side of the closet (I'm not touching my hubby's side.  He just did a major declutter a few months ago)

Imagine all this on the floor of my closet.  That's a more accurate before picture

The shelves.  I have got to do something with the shelves.

This is hubby's side.  It's normally a bit prettier, but I shoved the dry cleaning up there so it wouldn't be dragging on the carpet.

The plan is to tackle it this weekend.  This is the weekend between basketball and soccer season so if I don't take the time now, I can't guarantee it will get done.  

Stay tuned!


  1. Now compared to Michele and I's closet that's organized and cleaned! ha ha ha ha

  2. Love the blog! ;) Looks like we were both thinking the same thing about closets. I'll add your blog to my list so I can see the "after"!

  3. Steve, if you would have seen it before Frank's major clean was bad news!

    Thanks so much, Sam! I'm looking forward to the after as well. Really looking forward to the after! ;)

  4. OK, this is a sad admission, but your before picture looks a lot like my after picture would look. My house is a little out of control. We've been cleaning out the toy area today--the toys are so much happier!
    I just found you through Sweet Simplicity Designs. Your site is so cute--love it! Janae

  5. Janae, nice to meet you! :) If I took a picture of my kitchen counters right now it might make you feel better. ;) We are all a work in progress! So glad to hear that you have happy toys.
