Home Challenge -- the closet/storage

It's what you might call a work-in-progress still at this point. This is a "sort of After photo :o)

But, A LOT was purged and the rest organized as well as it probably get until I have the workshop building under control.

All in total, 8 of the large black drum liners left the house for the burn pile. I was as far from 'green' as I could get today, and gosh, my carbon footprint from that closet will never be offset I don't imagine.

But it's not half bad, if I do say so myself.

Tomorrow will be the bedroom. It's halfway as it is as we really trashed it to work that closet over.

I need some quiet time now. I came across a bunch of quilt squares in progress -- not mine, but from an elderly lady at our old church here. Her mother hand-pieced 60 bowtie blocks and has the remaining fabrics ready to finish the intended project. She noted needing 143 blocks for a queen coverlet. We need at least 8 quilts here for the beds, plus any extras for spare. Seems God rewarded our closet purging with a forgotten bonus :o)

Wow, you did great!!! It's nice to see that before and after, even though it is hard to bare all.

I have to admit, I'm really struggling. We just got in from church, and I still have half of that living/dining room.

I keep thinking, why don't I just start working on my routines and zone work. But it's so nice to see those immediate results, or at least results at the end of the day, I'm just not sure I can continue with this for the next 7 days. I think my eyes were bigger than my stomach, so to speak....We'll see, time for some prayin'...I need to think about what's going to better for the longhaul...

Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls.
