Everything fits real nice in the cart until you go through checkout and everything gets organized into bags. Then your groceries no longer fit in the cart and sometimes it takes two carts to get it out to the car.
That's how I feel about closets. If I started taking stuff out and organizing it, I would never be able to fit it all back in again. I'm sure if I relate my analogy to DH, he would agree that building another closet is out of the question. In fact, next time he complains about the bedroom closet, I'm going to do just that.
We have to empty 2 bedrooms and the closets by next Tuesday morning for the floor sanders. What a mess! I'm determined that half of it is not going back in! Would you all like surprise packages in the mail?? lol One of the rooms is my sewing/ebay/craft room/office, and it is full. I did the DIY thing and put shelves up all around the room, made work stations. Looked really cool the first week. haha
I may take first place with children's color yarns and fabrics. I love bright colors, polka dots, daisies, turtles... My husband is going to faint when I pull all the yarn out of that room. Maybe I'll stuff it in pillow cases and he will think we have lots of pillows, teehee.
Kathleen, I really enjoyed reading your article. I can certainly relate, but the "Winter blues" won't hit me for another couple weeks, when it does I'll blog about it. In the meantime I posted an article entitled The Joys of Winter. I would like to invite all of you to read it, I think that you will enjoy it. http://ozarkimages.blogspot.com . Thanks again for the article.
