Out with the old....

This weekend I was in one of those moods.  Where everything in life seems messy and out of order.  The only thing that gets me out of one of those moods, is cleaning and organizing. & so that's exactly what I did. I said goodbye to the world and did some major damage to my nest.

Armed with new (stylish) storage bins $4.00 each at Home Depot
Nicki Minaj's new CD Pink Friday downloaded onto my ipod( It's great, buy it) ... I hit my walk in closet, which was previously being used to store useless crap I was holding onto for no good reason.

It's a little embarrassing actually...all this crap that I just let pile up over time.  It felt so liberating to throw a large percent of it away (and donate). Once you get me started, I'm like a machine.

I would love to do something really neat with this walk in closet, but the slanted wall makes it hard to put in shelves or more hanging space. Any suggestions?  Hmm, definitely a future project...
until then, it is a organized storage closet.
Here's a before an after
(can you believe all that stuff came out of such a tiny closet?!)

Like I said...... It feels so good.


  1. Wow. Awesome cleaning and organizing! I've been doing some cleaning and organizing lately as well :)

    It's crazy how much crap we collect over time.

    Your storage closet looks great now. You can see the floor in the *after* !! ^_^


  2. Ahhh! Your rom reminds me of mine! I need to get some organizing done too seeing as how I'm moving to a new country in 8 days! Yayyy! xD

  3. OMG! I love those days! I thought I was the only one who had stuffed my closet and made my room a disaster when organizing! But its totally worth a messy process to make the end result a fabulous thing!

  4. There is never a better feeling to me than letting go & throwing away or donating a bag full of things that I never use! I especially get in the mood after watching hoarders!

  5. I'm the same way. Cleaning and organizing always makes me feel so good!

  6. Good for you!! I love that feeling. We are getting rid of useless stuff too since we just moved. I am not unpacking crap I don't use/want!

  7. feels so good, and looks so good! :D X

  8. wow! you got the urge to purge! :)
