Spring Cleaning

Spring cleaning is here at last! My closet had been needing a good cleaning for a while. Since we have been getting our house ready to sell, things have accumulated in there, and I had not gone through my clothes to decide whether to keep or sell. So today was the day I got it done! When I got up lauren said something about cleaning closets, and I realized I was in the mood! I started by taking everything out. That was a chore. Next I went through and took out things I had not used in several months. I knew I would not miss them if they left. (side note- if you have to much stuff, try taking out about half- things you do not think you will miss, then put them in a plastic container and hide it for a while. If you don't miss it, you don't need it. ;) next I went through all my coat hangers and took out the old plastic ones that you get when you shop at Target. Those went into the garbage. I had mainly white coat hangers, so I kept those and started putting all the clothes back in. I color coded the shirts, skirts, dresses, and jackets. (Color coded really helps me. I can locate a certain shirt much easier, and it is nice to have a rainbow of colors in your closet!) When I was nealy half way through Lauren, my mom and I went to Wal-mart. Wal-mart is the weird-est place ever. I can't describe it. We got some much needed groceries, and then looked at clothes/make-up/etc. We picked up 2 packs of white coat hangers for our closets, and the went down the shoe isle. I just LOVE the gummie shoes. Have you ever seen them? I don't know how comfy they would be, but when I have kids, mine will wear them!! hee hee....;) I bought my friend a birthday present, some sour patch kids, and a chicken bag. YUUMMMM!!!

When we got back, I finished my closet. Putting the rest of the clothes and shoes away. I think it turned out pretty neat, and you would never believe how much better it looks to have matching hangers!!!;)


I just had to show you a picture of my purse Lauren got me for my birthday. She actually found it at goodwill.Tonight Lauren and I watched a newer movie called 'My Sassy Girl.' It was a cute chick flick, only it had some 'iffy' conversations. It is now offically on my list of favorite new movies.

Hope you have a wonderful week!
