Giveways Galore

There's two giveaways that I need to make sure to mention.

How many of you love jewelry? How about a Valentine Bracelet? I have many bracelets and try to wear at least one daily. Check out Jennifer's blog at Rundpinne & the Romance bracelet and also check out Twisted Sister and check out all of the jewelry they offer.

Now how many of you take a drink to work everyday or grab a travel mug when you're running errands? Over at monogram chick, they have the cutest travel mug with polka dots. Stop by & check out their items. Leave a comment and say you heard about this from me - and if you win, I also win!

On to my most exciting, DH said - "what do you want to do today?" Since it's so cold out, I said we could stay home and organize the closet that's supppose to be the linen closet. (We don't have anything that you would typically find in a linen closet.) He was up for the job and said it would only take 20 minutes and why did I need his help? And my response was that I know I can't throw anything away, I needed him to help me declutter. (20 minutes, seriously? - I told him he might want to try it on his own and see if he thought this would be that easy - he declined.)

I was curious how long it would take to clear out the linen closet so I took a picture of the clock just as we started.

Here's the before - sad but true...

I know, I know - it's bad...

We got everything out and turned my back and Charlie jumped on one of the shelves!!

We filled our kitchen garbage & one large Rubbermaid, I found a Christmas magnet I looked for last month not to mention - I think I have enough Bath & Body Works hand soap and plug ins, probably can stay out of that store for awhile...

Easier on the eyes now..although I do see I need to switch the basket on the bottom shelf to the top since their different..details...and yes, these pictures are blurry - I think it's because I removed so many things - felt good but what if we need some of this stuff later on?

And the best news took 45 minutes!! WOOO HOOOO

As we were sorting through everything, DH said - this probably isn't something to blog about..WHATEVER.

What does this mean? I love to read your blogs about organizing and seeing your beautiful and messy homes and theres a connection?? I leave it at that, wishing everyone a safe week!

You have probably found many other s who have blogged about cleaning pantries and closets. We can get ideas from each other on how to store and organize things. It is a women thing. Right? I did blogged about my pantry not too long ago. I don't know if you have seen that yet.
