The kitchen, living room, and bathroom actually stayed pretty clean over the weekend. A nice benefit of participating in this challenge, I guess 🙂 .
Benjamin’s room wasn’t too bad. We have been working on implementing “clean up before bed”, which usually means mom and dad are putting away the toys while Benjamin watches. We’re working on it ;).
But I still did some general straightening, dusting, and vacuuming of the floor, as well as vacuuming the edges of the room (which REALLY needed it!).
Here’s the Before of the bedroom:
I also decided to tackle the bedroom closet. It really is a hodge-podge place to store anything and everything, not dissimilar to the hall closet, except for the addition of clothing. I kind of did everything all at once, so here goes.
This is our DVD collection, which used to be twice as big. Since we got rid of our TV last spring, we have thinned the herd a few times. But we still want to keep these, at least for now. We do watch movies on our computer, so they aren’t completely useless (yet)! One of the reasons I decided to tackle the closet today is to empty these bins and put them in to the closet.
Which I did :). All alphabetized (of course!), and very accessible.
All the diapers and wipes got moved to the empty wicker hamper in front of the sliding doors to free up room for storing clothes that are too big for Benjamin. Not loving the white basket for storage, but it’s all I have for now. And as you can see, we have some room left over too – yay!
It was such a productive morning that we went on a walk through the park to celebrate.
What did you do today? Clean out any closets? Do you have any tips for closet organization?
