A Progress Report... I Am Really Not Lying Down On The Job!

Things are coming along. I have some pictures to go along with this progress report so you can see for yourself! I have to admit that Himself appears to be making more headway than I am, but I assure you that I am not lying down on the job!

I have been throwing things away and boxing things up to give away. This takes time... at least for me. I have too much "stuff" for the size of my closet, so I have had to rearrange some things and get creative about my storage space. One thing I am having trouble with is deciding whether to keep or get rid of things that require ironing when washed. It's not that I refuse to iron. It is just that I find it easier to choose those clothes that are ready to go. I have some things that fit and I like, but they require ironing so they sit in my closet. I have started to iron some of these clothes as I put them away. If I find I am not wearing them then they will have to go. Might as well be used by someone who will iron and wear them.

Below I have posted some pictures taken yesterday and today of what has been accomplished by Himself and by me.

I have to say that I am impressed with Himself, is he available to clean up mine? ;)

I can see that you are making headway, but it must be exhausting for you.

Don't forget to take a break and enjoy this glorious Spring weather.

Hooray for you! I relate to the challenge of rearranging space as if the closet (or room) is a giant puzzle. Our closets are tiny. In fact storage space in our entire home is quite limited. Isn't it rewarding, as you make progress, though? When we've been able to make "clutter headway", the exhiliration outweighs the exhaustion. But please do reward yourself w/ breaks, like doberman suggests. :)
