Attack of the Winterwear

I generally think of myself as a fairly organized person. The areas that can be seen in my house are always neat and tidy (though not necessarily clean). However, in my efforts to clean the seen, I tend to have to shove the stuff into hidden areas...such as closets.

February is my annual closet cleaning month. I give myself 28 days to sort, organize, and toss out what has been shoved in over the past 11 months. So far so good! I have to be honest though; the closet space is this house is seriously lacking, and for once, I'm actually kind-of happy about that!

Throughout the month I've tackled each of our bedroom closets, and have relished the long, proud 'ahhhhh' afterwards. One closet stayed closed and avoided though....until yesterday. Our hall closet seemed to be spewing winterwear. Gloves, hats, scarves, and earmuffs had formed a small, damp mountain on the shelf above the coats. Chances of finding a matching pair of gloves were slim...especially if you happened to care that they match each other, your coat, and were not half frozen. I was dreading the task...but, it is February.

So, I bought an over-the-door shoe organizer. And, viola! Why didn't I think of this before?

Winterwear, you've met your match.
Hall closet, Happy February.

We're more alike than you think, Sister! I have the same thing on the back of my laundry room door!

p.s. Just move to Texas, and then you won't need all those winter clothes!! You could use the organizer for flip flops instead :)

I bet that I know the sabotaging culprit...a certain Boyheaded husband (Jeremy James)! I'm usually the victim. You wouldn't believe the text messages that he has sent from my phone!!
