Organizing and tossing....

Yesterday and today I have taken EVERYTHING out of my bathroom cabinets, and off the top.  Yes, I am a clutter bug so there was LOTS of stuff.   I also am a pack rat so I had lots that needed tossing.    I feel I did a good job of tossing and redistributing.  I had about 10 boxes of various sizes, now I have 4 that are going back in one form or another.   I had one box of stuff that I will let the girls go through.  It is shampoo, hair stuff etc.   A few things for the camper and about 1/2 or 2/3s of a garbage can, (The big black outside kind.)  

Maybe tomorrow I will tackle DH closet.  That is really my goal, but I couldn't do it until I did the bathroom, his closet is in the bathroom.  It is wall to wall ceiling to floor full of stuff!   Again much of it I know is stuff he doesn't want or that has gotten lost in his closet.  

Does anyone else end up with odds and ends of stuff lost in the back of cabinets that you "knew" you bought but then couldn't find?   I think I had 4 or 5 BIG bottles of peroxide and 2-3 of alcohol.  Band-aids?   I had a zillion 3/4 used boxes.   I combined them all into 2 of the old metal boxes and a tool box that I am making my first aid kit.   I may have room for towels in my cabinet now.   I would just have to buy some spare ones to put in it.  I do have a bunch of wash rags that I didn't know I had.  

I do feel a nice sense of accomplishment.  Maybe I will keep it organised for a while.  Maybe I will stay on top of it and it won't ever over grow again.   I do keep a better house than I did years ago, but I am sure not a house keeper.

I am so with you on the house keeper bit, definately not one of my talents. Clutter, I have too much as well. However, I never seem to have bandaids, Larissa finds them and puts them to good use.
