our closet is done

I cleaned out the closet and I am still here to talk about it. That is amazing! I started pulling boxes off the top shelf. I thought I have no idea what is even these boxes, so should I just pitch them? One box had a bunch of nice lady suits in it. Won't be needing those. So I threw that box out the door. The rest of the boxes were all Rusty's stuff. I asked him to go through them, but he just said that he wanted all of it. How can you tell you have even touched this stuff in two years! No sense in arguing, they went back into the closet.

I sorted through more of my clothes and got rid of another lawn and leaf bag full of stuff. Then it was on to sorting out my shoes. I have this huge box that I just throw all of them into. I dumped that on the floor. Anything that I did not wear last winter got pitched. Then I actually sorted the shoes by summer and winter. I figure this way it will be easier to get rid of them at the end of the season. Lets face it, if I did not wear them this summer then I do not need them.

Am I the only one with the black hole of a closet? Am I the only one who has a pack rat for a husband?

We finally got a letter from the irs and our bank. the irs is only suppose to hold x amount of dollars. So now Rusty is pissed. He was on the phone with the bank demanding that they release the rest of our checking, savings, and mutual funds. I however am not stressing it. I guess it is different for a guy. Who Knows.

Amber got her first response from some of the sponsor letters that she has been passing out. Amber was so excited to see the check! I was happy for her. It restored some of her faith.

I have to take Nikki shopping to go get the rest of her stuff for her trip. I need to buy her some sandals, hard candy, and some odds and ends for first aid kit. CJ said that he has a complete first aid kit that she can have, so we just need to add a few things to it. Oh I have to go to the avon store and buy their bug repellant. Then I will be done!

Amber asked Nikki yesterday if she had enough skirts for her trip and Nikki said no. Amber said " Well I get paid on Friday, I will take you down to the good will and buy you some outfits for the trip". I was blown over. That was very nice of Amber.

So, today I am hoping to work on cleaning out the garage. Maybe, if I get up the energy!

I live with a reformed pack rat.  Now he is the extreme opposite.  Just chuck it has become his mantra.  He still has some stuff he can't part with.  Good for you for getting it done though!

Thanks for visiting my blog - hope to continue to talk with you. I cant thank Lisa enough for sharing. I havent navigated the web in years. I've started selling Avon and have met people on line and I really am thankful for the military and all they do. My dad was in the Air Force, my step dad was in the Army. I appreciate all the troops and everyone - even those who just want to keep in touch with me and gab. Roz

Wow, that was nice of her to offer to buy her some things!! I think most people have closets that are full to the rim!! Mine was before I moved, more than one closet in fact. I have managed to keep them pretty clean now. Have a great weekend.

Yep John is certainly a pack rat. He has two boxes of shirts that he hasn't even looked at in years. Who knows if they fit, probably not. Plus a closet where the rack could fall down any day due to weight. I think his comes from growing up in a large poor family for him. You know I have to analize everything. lol Paula

I am no pack rack but yep my hubby used to me. Since being married to me, I won't let him. LOL. Hope Nikki has a good time on her trip.

I'm afraid I am the packrat in my house, although I'm getting better about it as I get older.  Actually, hubby is a bit of one, too, he can just be ruthless about getting rid of stuff when he finally decides he needs to.  The kids take after me, I'm afraid!!
