Camy here, talking about Spring ... er, Winter cleaning.
Yes, my house is SO MESSY that I need to start in Winter to finish my Spring cleaning. Oy!
Actually, this was started because we have to enter that spider-infested domain that is THE ATTIC in order to get our Christmas decorations out. And in order to even put our Christmas decorations up, we have to clean up.
I am chucking junk with a vengeance.
Do we need this anymore?
Have we ever used this? (alternate question: Have I ever worn this?)
Is there a reason this was put here or was it because we couldn’t think of anyplace else to put it?
What in the world is this?
I think the rust means it no longer works.
Ew! Ew! Ew! Spider!
After chucking junk, though, I have to organize the junk—er, stuff we do have.
Some things are easy to organize. Books, for example. They go on the shelf or in plastic bins (I have a super anal Excel spreadsheet that lists all my books and which box each one is in, and the boxes are all numbered).
Yarn is another easy thing to organize. I sort them by size and/or fiber content and put them in those nice plastic bins from Costco.
But what about all the odds and ends? Extra parts for the telephone? Extra cable for the TV? Extra dog toys and leashes? My husband’s keychain collection???
Any ideas? Right now, I am sticking things anywhere I have room that is an even halfway logical place to put them.
But the good news is that I can now see the floor! LOL
