I’m still cleaning


In spite of the fact that I have not posted anything even remotely  “Deep Clean” related in awhile, I have actually continued to clean things. Yes, really. I mean, a little. So the other day, when I couldn’t jam anything else into the linen closet, I broke down and reorganized it. Here is a once-in-a-lifetime: a before picture of my mess. I know! This never happens!! Behold! THE CLOSET OF HORRORS!!

Tinkerbell decided to “help”.

I basically took everything out, folded it all properly, and separated everything into categories. It’s amazing how well stuff fits once it’s folded. I also put things we don’t need often, like beach towels, in the hard to reach places out of the way.

I did all this while rewatching old Friends episodes. Not too shabby!

    Put blankets and pillows in plastic bags and squeeze the air out to get more space. Dollar Tree has large ziploc plastic bags for cheap. We learned this trick while traveling.

      I have some blankets and clothes stored in those “Space Bags” that my mom got me. The stuff pictured here are things we use regularly, like towels, sheets, and blankets.

      I think it’s hilarious that Space Bag googles itself, but also, you guys read the actual blog post! I have several Space Bags that I’ve used, but a cat did rip one open. Kept away from malicious cats, they are great!

    […] the thrift store to stuff her poof. I think that’s genius, but I already have a plethora of blankets laying around; I just don’t want to permanently stitch them into a foot stool. What’s a Clever Chick […]
