Project Simplify- The Closet, week 1

Are you up for a challenge? I’ve accepted the Project Simplify challenge being hosted by Simple Mom. Starting this week and ending the week of April 8th, we’ll be tackling hot spots throughout the home and be getting ready for spring. This is the first of the five weeks. This weeks challenge was to start with our wardrobe and clean out our closet. Did you know that we tend to wear 20 percent of our clothing 80 percent of the time?
When it comes to organizing my home, I am a big fan of The Fly Lady. She has been a huge help to giving me some structure to keep our often chaotic house in check. I’ve been able to keep up with the weekly home blessing hour of dusting, vacuuming, etc, but the big organization stuff gets left undone. We really LIVE in our home. We are here, in our house, almost every day all day long.  Playing, learning and living ain’t always pretty! So without further ado here is my journey this week.

This is a picture of our one and only closet ( yes, for the entire house!). We live in a very old house. My house has a lot of character, which I love, but it is lacking in the closet department. So this simplify challenge is perfect for us.
It feels so great to have this area of my life simplified. The whole family has joined in on this project together. My husband and children  have their wardrobe simplified. We are 8 garbage bags lighter!! We took them to drop off to donate tonight, it was great to get that stuff out of the house.
