Decluttered Closet

Today I decluttered my linen closet. It took me about 45 minutes, but most of that time was deciding what was going in the give-away bag and what was going in the throw-away bag. I'm using Freecycle for my give-aways, and the throw-aways are reposing in the dumpster. This is the finished product. Before, the comforters and sheets were folded, but jumbled up; the suitcases were falling off the shelf; two packs of toilet paper were open, but in different places; quite a few sample size toiletries were scattered around; notebooks and books lived in there too; and there was not definite place for anything and no one could tell where to put like things, because they were scattered all over. I plan to check it weekly for things out of place, and hopefully we won't have to deal with the former disaster again!

Is that a Winnie the Pooh blanket I see on the top shelf??? I think I have the same blanket! I use it in the car, because *someone* thinks that anything over 65* is HOT! (that would be my husband!)

Tammy, that is a Winnie the Pooh comforter! Beth had it on her bed till just a couple of weeks ago. I think she's outgrowing ol' Pooh Bear just a bit - but not enough to totally get rid of him! I'm keeping the comforter for a while, just to make sure she's done with it. I may eventually Freecycle it.

I love Winnie the Pooh! I just bought Winnie the Pooh socks. My hubby doesn't understand my obsession with Winnie the Pooh! LOL
