I’ve been spending a little bit of time cleaning out drawers and closets and other storage areas in my house lately. Unfortunately there’s a lot of stuff to clean out and go through since we’re kind of pack rats or so it seems looking at the stuff we’ve stored away.
My greatest problem is that I don’t know where to start. I suppose I should just start in one room and work my way through the house, but so far I’ve just been doing a little bit of cleaning and clearing out here and there. Oh don’t worry the house isn’t overly cluttered or anything … it’s just that we’ve accumulated a lot of stuff that we just don’t use and that I’m sure we won’t ever use again.
The other day I was looking in an upstairs closet where we keep things for the bathroom, hair care and so on and I came across some older straightening irons. I think I’ve had those for twenty years or more. I keep my hair short these days but a long time ago I used to have it longer and when it’s longer it gets wavy and sometimes I’d use the straightening iron to straighten my hair for a sleek look. I probably should get rid of them but lately I have been thinking of growing my hair longer again so maybe this was a good find after all?
How often do you go through your closets and drawers to clear out the clutter? Regularly or almost never?
