I got half the day to myself yesterday, and used it to actually get things done. I did. I didn’t sit on my tail all day, and I didn’t waste the day away. Nope. Instead I organised my dresser. By doing so, I was finally able to take all the clothes and shoes to the donate place, and get them off the floor.
First thing I did was go through my underwear/sock drawer. I’ve hated how mashed together everthing is in there for a while, and decided to finally do something about it. I pulled out my trusty xacto knife, some straight pins, and some of that left over foam-core, and made dividers. I now have a place for long sock, short socks, and everything else. No more digging! Everytime I open the drawer, I smile and sigh.
My t-shirt and sweater drawers also got makeovers. I sorted through them all, and the shirts that I wanted to keep for sentimental reasons – but will never wear, I boxed up, and put away. I then realised that if I folded, and then turned all the shirts on their edge, I’d be able to see all the shirts/sweaters at once, instead of them stacked one atop the other.
I’m quite pleased with the results, and will be even more pleased with the tax write-off come April. Yay for donations!
