This one took a little longer

I got to cleaning things out again like I did a few days ago. This time the project took a little longer than 30 minutes. The hall closet has been hanging over my head for a long time. I finally tackled it today. And it felt so good. It is like a boulder has been lifted from my shoulders.
Do you see this disaster? Oh my word! Every time I opened this door I would literally hold my breath.
The great thing about this closet is that there are tons of built in shelves. The bad thing is that it is so easy to just dump stuff onto these shelves when you are in a hurry.

I took everything out and organized stuff into piles. Like last time, I just used bins and organizational stuff that I had. It took me about an hour and a half but that is partially because there was a crying baby that needed tending to several times.
 Toys stacked neatly onto a shelf.

This is the pile of stuff that came out of the closet to sell. It is mostly onesies and tshirts that I had stocked from when I did custom work in the shop.
In other news, I started our tax return yesterday. I use Turbo Tax online and have for several years. I really like it. We are still waiting for a couple small documents but overall it is looking like we will get a nice refund (it helps that we had a baby and did some energy efficient upgrading this year)! Too bad the tax return money is already spent before it arrives. Isn't that always the way? I sure wish I could use it for an exotic vacation....

Purging stuff is always so fun. It's like a great weight is lifted!!
I wish that our tax return was going to be used for something fun too-but it always goes to good old student loans. Can't wait for those to be gone!!
