AS ALL THE HOLIDAY FUSS WINDS DOWN AND THINGS GET BACK TO NORMAL . WHAT EVER THAT LOOKS LIKE FOR YOU . I FIND THAT THERE SEEMS TO BE HIDDEN MESS IN EVERY DRAWER OR CLOSET IN MY HOUSE . LIKE THEY ARE JUST TO FULL. I JUST DON'T KNOW WHY BUT IT IS WITH OUT FAIL MOST YEARS THEY ARE MESSY. IT REM IND'S ME TO WEED OUT STUFF I HAVE NOT USED ALL LAST YEAR OR IN SOME CASES FIND THAT SMALL GIFT I BOUGHT AND PUT IN THE DRAWER BECAUSE I OPEN IT EVER DAY AND I WILL REMEMBER ITS THERE.
WELL I DIDN'T AND I DON'T IN MOST CASES.
HERE GOES! YOU HAVE TO MAKE MORE MESS TO GET TO THE ORGANIZED DRAWER AND CLOSET YOU HOPE TO KEEP ALL YEAR. START SMALL I USUALLY START WITH THE NIGHT STANDS . WE DON'T USE THEM FOR CLOTHES . THEY ARE MORE LIKE HIS STUFF OR MY STUFF DRAWERS , HIS AND HERS JUNK DRAWERS YOU COULD SAY.
TAKE EVERY THING OUT AND SORT IN THE NORMAL FASHION KEEP , TOSS, GIVE AWAY. THAN RETURN THE KEEP TO THE DRAWER,(THIS IS WHERE YOU CAN GET REAL DETAILED AND GET ORGANIZERS FOR EACH SPACE . I DON'T CAUSE IN MOST CASES I HAVE SOME ALL READY AND YES IT GETS MESSY AND IN OTHER CASES I DON'T FOR A REASON ). MAKE A BAG OR BOX OF THE GIVE AWAY STUFF.
TOSS IS EASY , TOSS IT IN THE TRASH.
I TRY TO DO ONE ROOM A DAY THAT WAY I AM NOT OVER WHELMED. IF YOU ARE BRAVE GO FOR IT AND JUST KEEP GOING THROUGH EACH SPACE TILL ITS DONE.
SINCE SOME DRAWERS HAVE CLOTHES IN THEM IT BECOME A FASHION SHOW OF SORTS ( WHY I DO ONE ROOM A DAY) WHICH MEANS I TRY ON EVERY THING IN THE DRAWER (OR CLOSET) THIS PART IS MOST FUN WITH A HONEST FRIEND , OR FAMILY MEMBER THAT YOU WON'T LOOSE IN THE PROCESS, ITS LONG OR IT CAN BE TRYING EVERY THING ON. SOME TIMES I KNOW THAT I REALLY LIKE SOME THING AND I KEEP IT THAT IS WHEN THE HONEST HELPER IS THERE TO TELL YOU YEAH OR NEH ON LOOKS THAT YOU NEED TO LET GO OF. IT CAN BE FUN WHEN YOU KNOW AT THE END YOU WILL HAVE YOUR STUFF ORGANIZED AND ALL THAT CLUTTER GONE.
HAPPY WINTER TIME CLEAN UP.
OH AND FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO WONDER IF I REALLY DO THIS JUST ASK MY KIDS OR HUBBY SOME HAVE HAD THE PLEASURE OF BEING THAT HONEST HELPER . HUMM THAT MIGHT BE WHY THEY ARE ALL BUSY WHEN I BRING UP WINTER CLEAN OUT. HA HA THAT'S OK THEY HAVE THERE OWN HOUSES TO KEEP UP WITH NOW ANY WAY . BUT MY HUBBY SOME TIME STILL HELPS .

We also got new toothbrushes an they did not fit what I had been using before. Though I will keep it as I do change toothbrushes more often. I like the old tooth brush container so I cleaned it up and stored it away it worth keeping to me. But the new container had to fit the big bulky bottom of two toothbrush's simple. For real we did this picked up the two tooth brushes and a tube of toothpaste just in case!!! I found a container in the office supplies I liked and others here and there till we ended up in a row of bathroom containers we tried each one I liked out with the brushes ( had to be a little creative)
as they where still in the plastic wrap. But we got it to work enough to choose a stone box, with a lid that I don't need but will use as a pedistal for a figurine I have in the bathroom. The only thing in common to my original holder is they both are stone. But it looks ok and it fit the job it needed to do.
Happy puzzle solving!

As i get all the Christmas decorations gathered up to pack up I'm finding that I need to sort out some stuff this year.
It's kind of like the clothes. Buy if you haven't used it in a few Christmas 🎄 I'm guessing your not going to. With our move to Ga. I have had to get rid of some lights that would not light an now I'm seeing that there was some things left over that never made a showing. Time to go! Yep get out the sorting boxes 📦 keep,sell, giveaway, an the all famous throw away. Hopefully my tomorrow or Wednesday this crazy mess will be packed away till next year. Believe me there is a system to all the piles you see here. From lights to ornaments it's ready for me to did in. Now I just have to carve out a few hours to do the next step. Weeding out. Last step will be to pack it up and put it away.
