Tackle it Tuesday

On Sunday while the kids were at Rondell's mom's house, Rondell and I tackled a few things on my To Do list. It was fun because Rondell was the one who initiated our cleaning. Thanks Ron!
The first thing we did was clean out our front closet. I've been wanting to do this for a while and I'm so glad it's done. It only took us about 15 minutes to clean out, so that was good. Below is the after picture:

Nothing fancy, just cleaned out. We threw away phone books, papers, shoes that were too small and damaged, and we took off all of the coats so we can wash them (that's why you see a bunch of empty hangers). In the basket I keep hats, scarves and gloves for the winter. It helps to keep things in order.

Here's a picture of all the trash we threw away.

I'm so happy to have been able to tackle another To Do item. Go to 5 Minutes for Mom for more.

Nice job. I'm big on cleaning out and throwing out. We are moving, so once again we are thinning out. I just refuse to pack those things we don't use.

Doesn't it feel great to get things clean and organized? Yesterday was spent cleaning carpets, mopping floors, and generally cleaning. And how wonderful for your husband to help you! :)
