There is an episode of the sitcom “Friends” that is about Monica’s closet. Monica is super organized and obsessed with cleaning but she has one secret closet that no one has ever seen because it is her messy closet. I realized the other day I have one of those. I have been slowly getting our house ready for back to school which is kind of like my fall cleaning. I realized that this closet which is in our spare room/my office is the one spot I never touch. Things go in there but never come out.
It houses all the bins of old pictures, craft supplies, school supplies, and things all of us have stuffed in there over time. So, it is now time to fix it. I almost never go in this closet and the doors stay shut so I really don’t think about it until one of the kids leaves the door open after looking for school supplies or want to look at old pictures. See all those bins and boxes at the bottom of the closet? They are pictures. Tons and tons of pictures.
I am putting this out on my blog so that I will fix this. This is my challenge to me. That by the end of the first week of school on September 8th I will fix this closet. I am giving myself plenty of time so that I don’t overwhelm myself or make an unrealistic schedule especially with a vacation planned in the middle of all this.
Anyone out there have a spot they need to take care of too that you have been putting off or never really noticed?
