I shared with you last week the dreadful before pictures of my basement. Well, I made SOME progress this week. I was hoping for a lot more, but I have come to the realization that I have Adult ADD. Let me explain...
First, I started with the closet in my basement by taking EVERYTHING out. Then, I put back in what I wanted to stay.
The hard part was doing something with the "stuff" that I took out. This is where my ADD started kicking in. Once I started putting everything away, I found NEW places to organize. For example, I found a bunch of CVS bags with toiletries that I had gotten super cheap and needed to put them with the rest of the stockpile in my bathroom closet. However, this is what I found in my bathroom closet:
What did I do? Well, I started organizing this area. While organizing this area I had a great idea...why not get ride of some of my stockpile and put together a care package for my niece who just moved into her first apartment? So....I started creating a care package. Do you see my ADD kicking in?
Well, at least something got accomplished. I did end up getting rid of excess clutter by creating the care package, but I now have another project started that I must complete! Oh, and my niece was thrilled and I am now the #1 Aunt!
Now...back to my basement! I am going to get my butt in gear for Week 2!
