Coming Out of the Closet

May 15, 2015

I have a confession:

My wardrobe is a disaster. My walk in closet contains every item of clothing I own, regardless of season. I have a collection of tee shirts with holes in exactly the same spot. Until I can figure out what is causing them, the pile keeps growing.  I have stuff that has become dated and unappealing. Many things that started out beige have miraculously turned grey after a trip through the washing machine. Amid the randomness of the clothing is luggage, linens, and boxes of “stuff.” While everything else in my life stays relatively organized, my closet houses the dirty little secret of my chaotic ways.
With a break in my work schedule aligning with a break in the weather, I plan to weed out my summer wardrobe, once and for all.

Will I really do it? Will I whittle it down to the bare necessities? What is that “stuff” and what do I do with it? How did all that junk fit into this little room? Stay tuned as we embark on Operation Coming Out of the Closet!

Kitchen Cure

October 4, 2013

4119300150-1

This week, I signed up for the Kitchn Cure, sponsored by the fabulous food website The Kitchn. Each day for 2 weeks, I am emailed the task of the day, which should culminate in completely cleaning, organizing and tweaking your kitchen into the cooking haven it is meant to be.

This week’s tasks included cleaning out the refrigerator and freezer; getting it purged, organized, and scrubbed to a squeaky clean.

The next challenge tackled the pantry, followed by the drawers and other cupboards, including appliances. Today they had us cleaning and scrubbing where the sun don’t shine. I don’t know  what could possibly be left for next week, but I am sure they have something major in mind.

Although I keep my kitchen pretty clean and user friendly, there is always work to be done. Truth be told, when I signed up for this, my schedule was fairly light. Of course now that it is here, I am working everyday,and can’t face doing this at 9 pm. Today is Friday, and I haven’t done any of the projects required yet. I plan to make up for it this weekend with a massive catch up plan to do all the required work for the week all at once.  And I plan to share the entire ordeal process with all of you.

Stay tuned as we scrub, purge, organize and beautify our kitchen. If you would like to participate, or see how others are faring, look for the hashtag

See you with before and after photos of week one’ s challenges soon!
