I didn't take a "before" picture...

... but here's the "after." The school closet is finally cleaned out! And, y'all. It took me all. week. My sweet family patiently stepped over boxes and files and books in the hall all week long while I moved things around. Looking at this picture, and looking at it in real life I think, "SO... what's the big deal?" Well, the big deal was why I didn't even take a before picture. Oh, my word. It had gotten completely out of hand.

And in the interest of being honest, I might as well tell you where this closet is. You might be imagining it in a school room or off of a hallway. Maybe in your mind's eye I have a wonderfully spacious home fraught with closet space and this is perhaps one of the closets in a spare room. No. This is the linen closet (I suppose that's what the floor plan meant for it to be) in our small powder bathroom downstairs. The "study" (our school room) is in the next room, and this space made the most sense for me. We keep towels and sheets, well, elsewhere. I actually had a homeschool friend use our powder room once while she was here, and she counted the Delta Science kits (in the top of the closet) while she was in there! LOL That's more interesting for a homeschooler than going through someone's medicine cabinet, I suppose. Now that I know my friends do this (and I don't mind.. I'd probably do the same!) it'll be easier now that it's all organized. (I'm here to serve...) Oh, and since I'm being so honest, need I tell you where I had to, um, perch while taking this picture? I'll let you guess. :)

So, there you have it. Last week's project. And, since order in one place creates disorder in another, I've got boxes of "stuff" out in the garage to file (I've got filing cabinets in the garage) and sell in our homeschool group's used book sale. More projects!

Oh, I am loving that closet! My little homeschool storage area is somewhat out of control at the moment too. But my most pressing project at this moment is our taxes! :-)
