Deep Cleaning our Abode

 I'm not the only person out there who wishes their house was more clean and organized. I've decided to do something about it. Our apartment doesn't have a ton of storage, but I'm finding ways to get everything put away. It's just taking a bit of rearranging.
Unfortunately I didn't take any before pictures, but I really should have. Imagine a lot more things stacked and one less tub and a lot of loose screwdrivers and other tools.

What I moved elsewhere:
Nathan's hammock is now in our laundry closet with our camping chairs.
Nathan's football and rugby ball are now in Mack's closet.
Our Christmas tub will hopefully find its merry way under our bed. Currently it's in my closet.

I didn't have to get rid of anything to get this closet organized. Which is lucky because Nathan didn't give me permission to get rid of anything.
 It only took me a week to get this done.
Yes, I know, a week is hardly impressive.
Suffice it to say I started a project I wasn't ready to tackle and then I ended up putting it off and dawdling.

I hope I never have to do this again, somehow Mack kept finding all the most dangerous things from the closet to play with. Saws, wire cutters, hammers, branch clippers, you know, those things that you definitely want your kid to play with. The funniest thing was when I had completely emptied out the closet Mack came over and poked his head in and got this look on his face that said, "what is this strange new room? I didn't even know this was here!"

The only downside to completing this project:
Now Nathan doesn't know where anything is.
And about 83% of the stuff in there is his.

Oh well.

Pin It!
