But there are some nice features that you normally don't find in a house as old as ours. One of those is the fact that we have 2 closets in our bedroom. They aren't huge walk ins, however, they are really spacious as compared to other homes of the same age. We installed a closet organizer in Jeff's closet shortly after we moved in. He really owns a ton more than me and it was nice to get his closet somewhat organized. I would like to replace it with something different, but it works for him right now.
My closet is just a rod and a couple of shelves above. I'm not a big shopper and so most of my summer and winter clothes will fit in this one closet. So does a lot of other junk!!
|Full view of my closet- Jeff still needs to install the bamboo flooring in both closets. It's|
been almost 2 years since we did the floor- hahaha!
As you can see, I store a lot of my magazines on my shelf in the closet. I need to go through them and get rid of most. There are a good many that I do enjoy re-reading, but I think many got put there because of sheer laziness. My wedding album is in the big black box on the top shelf next to all my breast pump accessories. I am just not sure what to do with my breast pump. I haven't used it in 8 years, but it kind of grosses me out thinking that someone else would actually want to use it! Any thoughts??
The last thing about my closet is this dress. It's Paige's First Holy Communion dress. It's very similar to my wedding dress (minus the sheer jacket) and when she said it was the one she wanted I was thrilled!!
However, it's been hanging on this hook for about 4 years now. I need to get it cleaned so I can box it up with her baptismal gown (which is probably in a pile of clothes in the attic!). I'm just so afraid of it getting ruined. So it's just hanging there collecting dust until I can get the courage to have it dry cleaned.
Because I can easily shut the door, I tend to just ignore the mess. But this morning, I decided it was time to really go through my clothes. I took down all the containers so that I can pitch winter and summer things of mine. I also need to see what winter clothes the kids have (or need) as well. I may have some after pictures later today or tomorrow.
Here I go!
