That’s the rug. The same rug I cleared off last week for Tackle it Tuesday. It looked great until the moment when I was frantically looking for something a little more warm-weather-appropriate to pack for my daughter to wear when she went to spend the night with my SIL. Of course, I had waited until the last minute to pack, so much throwing-of-clothing and distress was required.
And the big box? It was there because I’m just positive I’ll be able to fill it up with unneeded stuff as I declutter the master bedroom this month.
This morning I had planned to work on the end-of-the-bed pile that is also the site of an avalanche from crazy weekend searching. But in honor of the progress I made last week on the rug, I decided to go for this area. And here is the result after 32 minutes of work.
The cloth no longer covers the whole “table” but it’s better than the before picture. See, yesterday as I folded laundry, I set aside all of the too-hot-to-wear clothing. I then put it in this box/table to wait for next season. After all, it was pretty much empty. But then today, since I replaced all of the stuff that came out of it last Saturday, it’s very over-full. I took out a few short sleeved shirts for everyone, but I’m not ready for a full changeover of seasonal clothing, so this will have to do for now. Normally, I have a large suitcase that I keep in my closet for more off-season clothing, but it is currently being used as a prop and I won’t have it back until next week.
Believe me, it was tempting to make excuses and put this off until next week when I could “really do it right” but I’m very glad that I didn’t.
As for the big box – I moved it to another disaster area on the other side of the room.
I’m linking this up to Tackle it Tuesday over at 5minutesformom.
