Clean Up



What I Wore

Day of Housework

Sweatshirt - WalMart/Pants - NY&Co/Scarf - Thrifted
Shoes - Rue 21/Bracelets - Rue 21 & Local Boutique/Earrings - Forever 21


Although where I live in Ohio didn't get hit with the feared "Storm of the Century" that other areas got (instead of 18 inches of snow we got 2), today was a day that I chose to stay inside....decluttering.  Even though it doesn't feel like Spring has sprung, I am in a mood to clear out and clean up.  Growing up, I was what I would consider organized - but in retrospect, I probably didn't have a whole lot to organize.  When I was in college, my future mother-in-law would joke that even in the dark I could go to my underthings drawer, go three pairs down and come back with my pink undies (I joked back that actually the 3rd pair was beige).  I admit that in certain aspects I am still this way, but in others....well, paper is my enemy!  It's only a bit of a joke when my husband says to me that I don't need to hold on to every single piece of paper that my boys have ever touched (I home schooled them both when they were young, and I still have a lot of papers from that time, even though one is in college and the other will be there next year).  What about you, are you really organized, a mostly organized person, do you  feel you are more disorganized then you would like, or do you watch Hoarders and think 'I'm not that bad!'?

  10. Whether I am cleaning or not I have on my baggiest pants and shirt, hair done but no make-up. Never suitable to answer the door! My hubby dresses the same when he gets home so he doesn't mind me! I am a pretty organized person but don't like clutter. I started my Etsy shop to help de-clutter and have added over 200 items to the mess. Oh well. Found you on Wednesday's Adorned from Above Blog Hop. Following you via GFC!

  11. Oh I am over organised too - it drives my sloppy husband mad and is the source of many a household battle. I have my two sons 3 and 5 in a strict training plan! Love how the scarf lifts your outfit. Thanks for joining up with WW :)

  17. The lip color is too fun! Love it. And great scarf, too. And lastly, if I don't watch out and stay focused, I'd be keeping everything I own... it's quite pathetic... lol. Good for you for being diligent.
