My June goal...not so much

Sunday, July 01, 2012

I set June as the month I would tame the monster that is my closet. It has a nasty habit of swallowing everything within reach of its maw. I frequently have to rescue the cat from its bowels, and that's not a pretty image. So here is how I did (or didn't):

By the end of June, I want to have accomplished the following:
1. All too-big clothes out of my closet
"All" was a tall order. I got some out, and the up side is that I'm starting to see space in there.

2. Clothes packed for donation, with donation spreadsheet completed.
Part way. I set up the donation template and have 3 bags ready to go.

3. Clothes donated or pick-up at least scheduled.
No half way here. Didn't even schedule the pick-up. Last year I scheduled a pick-up to get me into gear. Guess I'll have to do that this year, too.

4. Travel supplies cleaned out, and international travel gear consolidated and
But I didn't get this part done till July 1.

5. Old bags discarded.
emoticon period.

6. Closet neat enough I wouldn't mind company taking a peek.
I even hate peeking in there.

Soooooo, slipping the goal into July.

    Thanks for asking EMGI. I finally declared victory and loved seeing those donation bags go of our living room and onto the Vietnam Veterans of America truck!

    You're doing way better than I am! Now you've reminded me that my closet needs a good hoeing out, too! You have 31 days in July! emoticon

    For me, it is an entire big room, with bathroom and closet. Got most of it done in June, really needs finished in July. Let us all celebrate all the De-Clutter Queens (and Kings).

    Sounds like maybe even a "slipping into August and September" goal. I can relate all too well. Bag by bag, maw by maw we go!

  The closet is such a task, I have the this sister to your closet. Last year I put all my clothes on with the hangers backwards and hung them with the hangers backwards. When I wore my clothes I would hang them back properly after I washed them. If they were still hanging backwards after a year, get rid of the them. I still kept a few things, but it helped a lot.

    This is my summer goal too but I haven't even starte yet except for buying some new coathangers. I'm going to give myself until the end of July to get it done. Maybe I'll have lost some weight by then.
