Spring has sprung! We mention spring so often in our posts that you’d think the only thing we did around here was wish for spring [only partially true]. While I’m not particularly in the mood for spring cleaning, I am in the mood for an organization project which is great seeing as it is my #3 item from my 2014 Bucket List: Select a space in my home to [re]organize every month.
However, I have a dilemma [imagine that], I cannot decide which space I would like to tackle for the month of April: the front hall shoe closet or our garage. You may ask, why not do both? Because my friends, I’ve been stripped of my superwoman cape and for the sake of my sanity must only select one project this month.
The current state of our shoe closet = not too bad, maybe an hour of work. Also, I like cleaning out the closet to make room for new shoes [ulterior motives?].
The current state of our garage = disaster. Being a former Midwesterner in the South, our garage has turned into our basement and no longer a place to park cars. We’ve got lots of “stuff” in there, most of which is no longer useful to us. In fact, as of late it has become our dumping ground for when we organize all the other spaces within our home. Perhaps it’s because it’ll be easier to get the stuff to Goodwill®; completely justified.
Just some ideas …
Either project I select I know I will be making a trip [or five] to Goodwill® which supports my #5 item from my 2014 Bucket List: Give back to the community once a month. Two birds, one stone? Yes please. I know that the items I bring to Goodwill [shoes, clothing, household goods, etc.] will help create jobs in our very own City of Oaks.
