I guess that Spring cleaning fever skipped me this last year, or maybe I was just busy being over due and having my fourth baby! Anyways excuses excuses! Lucky me though the fever has hit, and it's not H1N1, but fall cleaning at our house. Even Kent has the fever so it really is quite perfect! Kent is working on getting the garge winter ready for me to park in and super organized! There are shelves, lots of them!!
We just got the Vanna unit from Ikea for our back entry. It's regularily $299.00 and I got it for $55 at their birthday sale. I stood in line and threw a few elbows, then enlisted the help of another lady just as desperate as I to get one of 16 shelves. I'm not necessarily proud of that, okay I kinda am! I got it!! Anyways it saved us a bundle and makes my backdoor look Bee-u-tiful! We are hanging hooks for the kids jackets at their height next and then we'll almost be organized back there. PICS TO COME!
I've also been sorting through bins of the kids clothes for hand me downs etc... as it turns out, not counting the clothes in their drawers, I have 8 bins of boys clothes alone!!! I still need to sort Vienna's from keepsake and giveaway (another 5 bins).
I have a whole bin of clothes to sell at the second hand store, and a garbage bag full of Kent and I's old shoes that have not been worn in years to donate!
Still on the list:
Make bags for kids to sort toys and hang hooks for bags
make blackout curtains for our master bedroom
Sort Girl clothes
Hang pics of my family
Finish organizing our office
make bench seat covers
Keep cleaning during all of that
and I am sure a million other things that will pop into my head as I go along!
How are you projects coming?
