super clean saturday

Posted by nonnasnonsense on January 31, 2009

Yea!! I did it and all by myself too! I removed one of the shelves on the left, which let me hang the coats there and still have room underneath for our shoe box. notice I left hubby’s boots on TOP of the shoe box knowing that he will never put them in and out everyday buy hey, at least they are close to where they are supposed to be and out of sight. I have easy access to my toolbox and ahhemmm my roller blades should I ever convince myself they will do more good than damage should I dust them off and head to the roller rink.

on the top half of the closet we have a game section, a shelf where I can actually lay out my pool cues flat to prevent warping, a box containing various dog grooming items that I probably won’t use, but you just never know. oh, and there is a pump to pump up my airless mattress that went to mattress heaven. it had a little hole in it and so industrious me decided to patch it with the kit that CAME WITH IT. Well I patched it and it looked good so I aired it up. Then POOF! A big ass whole on the other side of where I patched it appeared. Seems like their glue works really good at soaking down through both sides! I digress, so the Wally-world bag is filled with winter necessities such as gloves, toboggans, and scarves. I need something prettier to store that crap in, but I have no idea what to use. What do y’all Yankees do with all that junk?

you should see the pile of crap hubby has to haul off to the dump! hey are you supposed to recycle vcr tapes? My stupid chamber of commerce can’t even tell me what to do with my LCD computer monitor that died! I feel bad about just hauling this stuff to the dump, but I am totally not letting it sit around here after all that work I spent cleaning the house up!

    Congrats! Very industrious of you! I read that you can turn computer parts in to staples – and some other stores. If you have any of those near you.

    The closet looks amazing. I use a cloth bag that holds all our hats and gloves. I have one for me and one for daddy that hangs on the coat rack by the door. A pretty basket would be ice I might have one you could have. Love momma

    Plastic stacking storage baskets are what we use for the hats and gloves. Nice work. Can you come over here now?

    I am impressed with your space saving ideas. I will probably steal some of them.

    Beloved Wife has found all kinds of things (not me I’d never work that hard – I’m a guy remember!). Stacking plastic baskets are real good. She also found these plastic bins with covers of various sizes that are really good both with and without covers. I will have to ask her where she gets them but I think likes Lowe’s
