Bedroom Drawers- Project #2


 So today I decided to tackle a few drawers in my room. I definitely need a place to store school/office supplies. I have been keeping them in one of my dresser drawers. The one that wasn't broken that is. I decided that it couldn't be that difficult to fix the other drawer myself, I watch enough Handy Manny after all.
 My son helped me fix the drawer and it gave me room to put my T-shirts back in the place they belong, rather than mixed up and shoved with a whole bunch of other clothes. Next order of business was reducing the amount of writing utensils I had. I still probably have more than most people would think is normal, but I do not have anything in any school bags and I tend to lose pens daily. I even tested to make sure they all work. The ones that still work that I am not keeping are going to my friend who is a school teacher and she said they are always willing to take extra school supplies.

In addition to the drawers project, I have gotten 3 loads of laundry done (one of mine, one of my sons, and one of the bedding) and am caught up. If you don't know me, this is a major accomplishment. I usually wait until it is so unmanageable that it takes full days to get it all done. I do need more hangers though. Or maybe, I should take some of the stuff I don't wear off the hangers and replace. That is probably the smarter idea and is what I am trying to do. A little at a time.

Side note: Did you know that Craigslist has a FREE section?! No, I am not looking to accumulate anything else, free or not! But it is the absolute FASTEST way to get something gone and out of your house. I posted the bathroom items I was getting rid of, jumped in the shower, and by the time I looked at my phone I had 5 responses already! Got rid of the whole lot last night as a take all and pass on what you don't need to the first woman who responded. Yes, I probably could have gotten some money for it, but I wanted it gone and fast.
