Sweet Pea helped me with my closet recently but there were still boxes to unpack. They had been shoved in there to get out of the way (and out of sight) for awhile. Plus then I piled up a couple more boxes in sorting. I have one gift box & one box for clothes that need to go into specific bins which are presently buried in the garage. I'm glad to have the gifts all in one place. It was very handy for Sweet Pea's birthday. Of course in addition to the boxes are the piles I am busy sorting. How come when you try to clean it ends up making a much bigger mess than you started with? Eee gads.
Today I couldn't take it anymore and dug in. I'm proud to say I worked on my room every minute I was conscious. Lol. Yes, I did have to take a short nap or I wouldn't have made it. Sweet Pea & later Boo Bear did help me a little. Mainly running things to different rooms. I'm very happy with the results. I still have the 2 boxes that will need to be put away later (the clothes & gifts) but they have to wait until the shed is built and the garage is sorted. A domino effect if you will. Other than that I have only one, big box to unpack, a paper bag full of papers to put away (ugh), some wrapping paper to stick in the attic, and some shelves to find a home for and have Dave put up for me. Not bad at all! I'm a little afraid of the big box as I have no idea what's inside waiting for me. I'm praying it's not a ton of odds & ends. Oh, I forgot to mention I also dusted & vacuumed in here tonight too! Yay! And I can even see surfaces of furniture again! I'll post finished pics when all is complete. For now here are some of the "in progress" pics I took earlier in the week.
Of course the cats HAVE to be in the middle of everything. Here is Pixie/Romeo checking out the wire cubbies.
Sassy enjoyed hanging out in the unpacked box.
Thank God Sweet Pea can think in the abstract. I am completely lost when it comes to putting these cubbies together. Aren't I sad?
We even had enough for her to set up some in the other side of the closet. They are awesome of inexpensive storage.
All ready to be filled with organized things.
My gift box & clothing box I mentioned. The smaller box is breakables that I have no place for until I get shelves up. The giant box is the one we unpacked today. Full of odds & ends! What a hassle! It has a matching twin and I was using both for nightstands these past months. How glad I will be when they are gone for good.
