Day #8 ~ Getting Organized Challenge (The Coat Closet)

I did it! ( I know you thought that I wouldn't make it today..... didn't you?)
I have had a very busy day.
It turns out that cleaning out the coat closet was a very good thing.
I think I found something that had been missing for everyone in the house!
and I found a $263.00 check that was 7 months old. ( that's right, no lie!)
something we didn't even know we had.

so, this was a good thing!
here is before
at top we have some Christmas decorations and Halloween costumes!

and this is what it looks like now...
I got rid of many coats that were too small or that we don't wear anymore!
I still kept the decorations there for now, but they are going to find a better home .

I found a bunch of mismatched holiday decorations too. And tonight it is way too cold to make my son go into the crawl space where we keep them all. :) So they stay for awhile longer.

Isn't it amazing what gets lost in the shuffle! That's awesome! Spend it wisely. :)
