Quiet But Still Editing

I haven't posted in a couple of days because I've been working on actually getting ahead in my school work.  Even so, I'm also working on more home editing projects.  Today's project was the place I call the "pet closet."  It's a closet in my laundry room that is pretty much dedicated to my pets, although I also use it as a broom closet.  This closet had gotten out of control and I decided enough was enough.  I had a number of items that didn't belong in the closet or that I no longer had use for.  Since we live on a farm, I also keep a few items for goats in this closet.  These items are seldom used and mainly consist of various medications for when we have a newborn or a sick goat.  I needed to edit and arrange the closet so that it made more sense.

Editing the closet really didn't take much time.  There are a few items that I kept but will probably eliminate some time in the future.  But for now, I feel there's plenty of room to breathe and I can actually see and get to what I need.  Although I don't like the changing season (from hot to cold), I do enjoy how it motivates me to tackle household projects which makes my home more enjoyable during the cold of winter.

I was searching for something in my junk drawer recently and couldn't stand it anymore. So I stopped whatever else I was doing and completely cleaned it out. Couldn't believe how much stuff I threw out!

Editing the closet is easier during seasonal changes. This is not a revolutionary statement, but as I pull out fall clothes I've already filled ANOTHER bag for donations.

Linda, I find myself doing the same. And it's always so rewarding when I'm done.

Shona, it does make sense that this editing occurs when we're pulling out clothes for the new season. I keep a donation bag in a corner of my closet. As I pull out and try on items, those that I find to be less than ideal are now going into that bag.
