Whew. The yard sale for this year is over. Tonight I have to go pick up what's left and decide what to do with it. Funny how having a yard sale makes me want to sort out more stuff to get rid of. Yesterday I sorted out a good deal of the bathroom closet. I have a closet with shelves that I had loaded up with tubs of bathroom stuff. It was not organized and I couldn't tell when we were running low on different items without digging or worse...having to dig around when I needed something in a hurry. So...I purchased several clear shoeboxes (on sale now for the college kids) and sorted things out, labeling each box so we can find things easily. Makeup. Hair accessories. Deodorant. Razors. Manicure/Pedicure stuff. Toothpaste. Soap. Hand Soap. You get the idea. I also purchased a shoe organizer, the kind with pockets that hangs over the door. I hung this on the closet door, facing the inside of the closet and it is now full of bottles of hair spray, gel, mousse, shampoo and conditioner. The pockets are see through so it makes it a snap to find what I'm looking for. And right now, I don't need all those hair care products clogging up shelves or the medicine cabinet anyway! I still have some sorting to do and hopefully I'll get to that today.
   I already did a giant load of dishes and have the laundry started. Chicken is thawing for dinner, the baby is napping and I'm about to put some laundry away.
    Pete went back to work today after a 3 day weekend....had to have his car repaired yesterday. I always feel kind of a let down after having him home for a longer period of time. I love when he's home with us!
   Ok. Back to work for me. I have a yoga class tonight too...YAY! Have a great day everybody!
