One of the things the author stresses is how to fold and place your clothes in the drawer. I have a lot of T-shirts, which I stack and shove into whatever drawer has space. I have matching closets on opposite sides of the bedroom, each with rod space above and 4 large and 2 small drawers below. If I was looking for a T-shirt or a pair of jeans I usually had to open several drawers to find the one I want. Although I didn't think I'd like the book's suggested way of putting clothes away, it has provided me with a lot of extra space.
I haven't even started to do the "tidying up" in the manner suggested by the author, but I have been doing a lot of laundry and that is as good a time as any to pick out things I probably won't wear again, and to begin storing the remaining items in a space where I can find them easily.
Here are a few photos showing my T-shirts and capri pants. My jeans, sweat pants, etc. are on hangars which means less wrinkles and more drawer space.
The first photo is out of sequence and I don't know how it ended at the top of the download, but it's just a picture of a rainy day, and you can see the dog park across the street. The former view was so much better without the fence and gave the feeling of open space. The second & third photos are of my new method of putting my clothes away. They are supposed to be arrayed from light colors up to dark, and I probably need to do a little reorganizing on that score. (Click pictures to enlarge)
It's a lovely day today and will be even warmer tomorrow - up to a balmy 75!
I made a trip to Costco this morning where I filled up the gas tank at 2.279/gal. The last time it was down around $1.82 or so. This is our "summer blend" which is supposedly cleaner during the hot summer, but which costs outrageously more per gallon.
I also got the ice cream and whipped cream for the St. Pat's day milkshakes, and found some organic weed killer (2 spray bottles per pack). I've emptied nearly an entire bottle on the weeds, and if it doesn't work to my satisfaction I will return the unused bottle and get a full refund.
