It started, like all things do, when I could no longer fit the vacuum cleaner back in the closet. We all have that beloved kitchen junk drawer, or two.
I also have this…
A nice quant little hall closet.
That is until you open it.
Last week I had succumb to the realization that I no longer could allow this to go on.
So, while dinner simmered on the stove I proceed to remove everything form this hole- in -the- wall.
Yep, there is that never ending red burlap bolt, broom and junk in the bottom.
Fourteen winter coats, for two grown adults.
I will add that I live in Oklahoma where the weather is downright CRAZY!!!!
A large box stuffed with wrapping paper and bags.
And look at this… who knew if you didn’t move anything, out of a closet for 5 years, that little bunnies would make a home. Who am I to destroy all their coziness?
That’s the main water shut off for our home. It was in such an easy place to get to!
Needless to say, that in under an hour, I had donated 8 of the fourteen coats. Whittled the paper and bags down to a tiny little box. Stashed the burlap and junk where it needed to be. And moved the dust bunnies down the street. Parked my vacuum cleaner with enough room that I didn’t have to lean on the door for it to shut!
Now, only if it will stay that way. Don’t all kitchen junk drawers after a good clean out? Ha!
